Air Canada Centre loses liquor licence for a week

Patrons of Toronto's Air Canada Centre need not bring beer money in late December.

The Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario slapped the ACC with a seven-day penalty for "permitting drunken patrons to be in the licensed patrons."

The infractions occurred in the fall of 2002 at a Toronto Maple Leafs game and a Rolling Stones concert.

As a result, there will be no alcohol served at the ACC from Dec. 21-28.

The venue is scheduled to host three major events that week:

  • The Toronto Raptors-Orlando Magic game on Dec. 21.
  • The Toronto Maple Leafs-Florida Panthers game on Dec. 23.
  • Disney On Ice: Toy Story 2, which runs from Dec. 25-Jan. 1, 2004.
