Coming to your local bar … plastic cups? According to a provincial court judge in Nova Scotia, it may be time for the provincial government (and one would assume provincial governments across Canada) to ban glass glasses and bottles in bars.
Obviously this judge has never been in a bar fight, watched a bar fight or been in a tough part of town.
I’ve heard of people using chairs as weapons before, let’s ban those. I’ve seen people smashed against bars before so let’s take the physical bar out of the bar. And tables have pointy corners sometimes so only round ones. On second thought, tables can be used as weapons so let’s ban those unless they are made out of cushy foam that never hurts anyone or the environment.
Or here is a better idea…..how about Judge Gregory Lenehan sticks to applying the law and leaves crafting the law, social policy or the stemware regulations to those responsible for such things.
