Ajax will oppose liquor licence for 7-11 stores

Ajax Mayor Shaun Collier has announced that the town will oppose a request to the provincial government by the management of 7-11 stores for licence to sell liquor.

“On Monday, I’ll be requesting that council join me in opposing the recent requests and liquor license applications by 7-11 stores that want to serve alcohol,” said Mayor Collier to members of Ajax-Pickering Board of Trade.

“It is my position that our already struggling food and alcohol service establishments – who are still not fully reopened after a year of mandated closures and patron limits – do not need to be subject to further competition at this time,” he pointed out.

“I will also be asking that my Ontario Big City Mayor colleagues support this position at our meeting on Friday,” he added.

Earlier, Mayor Collier had urged the provincial government to allow restaurants access to wholesale supplies from LCBO.
