Duly Quoted: Deputy Mayor Norm Kelly, on Early Morning Hockey and Beer

“Go Canada Go! You’re either invested in the hockey supremacy of Canada or you’re not. I don’t know how many people will take advantage of it, but for that short period of time and for that purpose, I’m all for it.”

—Deputy Mayor Norm Kelly, after being asked by CP24 whether he supports a motion Councillor Mike Layton (Ward 19, Trinity-Spadina) plans to put forward next week that would permit bars to open at 6 a.m. for Olympic hockey. As Layton explained, “I don’t imagine it’s that folks are going to be taking advantage of it at 7 in the morning, but when that third period hits, and it’s 10:30, just before restaurants and bars can start serving alcohol, I don’t see any harm in that. …Particularly for the medal-contending games, why not relax it a little bit.”
