The head of the Quebec Bar Owners Association is going one step further in his fight over beer sales with the Bell Centre.
Peter Sergakis complained last week to the province's liquor board that the Bell Centre didn't have the proper permits to sell alcohol during non-live events - referring to beer sales during the televised game 7 between the Habs and Bruins.
The Liquor Board sided with the Bell Centre but Sergakis says he's ready to go to court over the issue.
"I don't think they have the permits to do that, because the permits stipulate that they are only allowed to sell liquor or beer when they have live shows." he tells CJAD News.
The association, which Sergakis says represents some 700 members, plans to file a motion later this week asking for a hearing with Quebec Superior Court.
The liquor board, for its part, says the case is closed.
Some downtown bars have also said they have no problem with the Bell Centre selling alcohol when there is no "live" hockey game taking place.
