P.E.I. restaurant inspections for December

Two premises that serve liquor fined over intoxicated patrons

CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. - In what is an extreme rarity, provincial health inspectors went more than a month without issuing any violations to food establishments.

Kelly Hughes, senior environmental health officer with the province, told The Guardian Jan. 11 that, according to their records, there were no warnings issued for the month of December or to date in January.

The Guardian checks in with health inspectors on a monthly basis and reports on any food premises establishment that has been hit with a warning letter, health order or closure.

There are also usually a variety of establishments that receive a warning letter for operating without a valid food premises licence, but everyone was in compliance in December.

Meanwhile, the P.E.I. Liquor Control Commission did report two recent violations, both involving intoxicated customers.

Route 145 Bar & Grill in Bloomfield was fined $250 on Nov. 27 for an incident that occurred on Nov. 16 for lack of control.

The Olde Dublin Pub in Charlottetown was also fined $250 on Nov. 27 for a violation that occurred on Nov. 18 for the same thing.

Jamie MacLeod, director of corporate services for the commission, said lack of control comes under the general operating manner of the premises.

“A number of factors are determinants for which the licensee will be held accountable,’’ MacLeod said in an email. “In both cases, it was related to an intoxicated patron being on the premises.’’

Route 145 has since closed, shutting down following a New Year’s Day Levee. West Prince RCMP were called to a disturbance at the bar at about 10:45 p.m. Jan. 1.
