Vancouver pub written up for serving alcohol after hours during Rob Ford visit

VANCOUVER - British Columbia's liquor regulator has written up a pub for serving patrons after hours during an apparent visit by Toronto Mayor Rob Ford.

The Toronto Star published a story in February, alleging the Foggy Dew pub in Coquitlam, east of Vancouver, served Ford drinks after the bar's last-call time.

The liquor regulator looked into the allegations and confirmed yesterday that the pub was handed two contravention notices.

Spokesman Douglas Scott says one was for failing to clear the establishment within half an hour of the end of liquor service and the other was for allowing patrons to consume liquor after hours.

However, no further enforcement action was recommended against the pub, though the notices will remain on its file.

A spokesman for the pub's parent company, Gibson Hospitality Inc., couldn`t be reached, and a supervisor who answered the phone at the pub declined to comment.

    Rob Ford did nothing wrong. It was the publican who broke the law. Rob Ford just helped him, a little bit.
