Six establishments cited for operating with staff that didn’t have mandatory beverage serving training certificate

Six Island establishments that serve alcohol have been hit with $250 in fines since early September for operating with staff members who didn’t have a mandatory beverage serving training certificate.

The province has been posting inspections carried out by environmental health offices for premises that serve food for years. And it posts them online for the public to view.

Now, the P.E.I. Liquor Control Commission (PEILCC) is posting the same sort of thing for inspections it carries out.

Jamie MacLeod, director of corporate services for the commission, said the September violations and early October violations were all dealt with by the board of commissioners for the PEILCC.

The establishments that were hit with the $250 fines for staff members working without mandatory beverage service training certificate include — Holy Cow Restaurant in Morell (Sept. 7), China Garden in Charlottetown (Sept. 14), P.E.I. Ocean View Resort & Golf in Summerside (Sept. 16), Captain’s Cove Seafood & Grill in Montague (Sept. 18), China King Buffet in Charlottetown (Sept. 21) and Main Street Pub 2014 in Montague (Sept. 21).

All of the above infractions fall under the Liquor Control Act (LCA).

Two $250 fines were also handed out under the Liquor Control Act Regulations (LCAR).

Both Club 19 Brudenell Resort and the Wheelhouse in Georgetown were fined for alcohol leaving/entering the premises. The violation in Brudenell occurred on Sept. 21 while the Georgetown incident took place on Oct. 8.

The Wheelhouse in Georgetown was also fined $250 for alcohol leaving/entering the premises following an inspection Oct. 8.
