Comment on Liquor Commission: Lawyer, social worker represent Alice by Heather Wells.

A friend of mine rang the LLC several months back to complain about the lack of control of the service of alcohol across the town.
He was advised to take videos of the offending venues and send to them.
I can tell you that he told the person on the phone that they should be doing their job and going around and just watching the bar staff and security personnel, not the general public doing their job.
Hopefully this new group will control the sales to both take-away customers and venue goers.

Perhaps a correlation between costs of POSI and the costs associated with hospital admissions, law enforcement issues would clarify matters better.

Oh and while you are assessing all of the above, maybe morning and evening attendances at the local watering holes should be looked at, like who gets asked why they are drinking at 10am, why they are in these places everyday and night?
Perhaps then the POSI might make sense to those who believe it is a waste of time, resources and money.
