March 24th, 2014 6 comments

The CCA along with several members of the community attended a pre-hearing regarding the liquor license application for 1319 Shillington (aka. The Suya Spot). At this pre-hearing we learned that the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) has also objected to the application and the matter will go before the Licensing Appeal Tribunal at a full hearing scheduled for May 13 and 14th at Macie's Best Western (1274 Carling Avenue)
The pre-hearing also established that two members of the community will represent the neighbourhood alongside Counsel from the AGCO. Carlington will be represented by Kevin Waghorn (Acting President of the CCA) and Grace McClelland-Crout, Coordinator, Viscount Eyes Neighbourhood Watch. They will be coordinating the strategy for the hearing. For more information please feel free to contact us.
