Last call – Quebec bars forced to close at midnight


After significant outbreaks of the Covid-19 virus continue to appear in areas around Montreal (since bars reopened on June 30th) including 20 people who tested positive on the South Shore after being at house parties and then going to the Mile Public House bar in Brossard, the Quebec government is expected to announce today, “Quebec bars forced to close at midnight”. Regulations were not being followed, as seen in the crowds of people packed together.

The NABQ (Nouvelle Association des bars du Quebec) supports the idea in general, for bars that are not following the rules, but they are asking for help from Pierre Fitzgibbon, Quebec’s Minister of Economy. However, the Corporation des proprietaires de bars, brasseries et tavernes du Quebec (CPBBT) is disappointed and not supportive of the idea. “People will go bankrupt. The turnover is much (more) between midnight and 3:00am. Everyone is going to pay for a few offenders,” said CEO Renaud according to a Journal de Montreal report. Quebec is expected to make the announcement Thursday morning, with new rules and clarification of the measures being taken.
