Letter: Pedal Pub should be run out of town

Dear editor:

It is extremely disappointing that town council is allowing the Pedal Pub to continue operations on our very busy roads in Niagara-on-the-Lake.

Coun. Clare Cameron asks about the legality of having fun, listening to music in this community, and suggesting that council “put on our big boy and big girl pants.”

I am sorry, but those comments do not even deserve a response. Another comment was about attracting younger visitors to NOTL. Wow, so the answer is to bribe them with alcohol and they will come. Heaven help us.

The comment about the closing of the Pedal Pub having a “ripple effect” that will impact the NOTL economy, is truly laughable. If the NOTL economy is dependent on this “mobile bar” we are all in serious trouble.

Mark my words, it will only be a matter of time before council is debating a request for a “mobile marijuana pedal operation.”

Thank goodness for Coun. Gary Burroughs who continues his support of banning the Pedal Pub, “regardless of the blasts from social media.”

The time has come for council to decide that our public roads are for vehicles – to get from point A to point B – not a party venue. 

When is the next municipal election?
