Christy Clark`s Most Excellent Families First Drunken Adventure
Written by Grant G
By now many of you have heard that Christy Clark thinks it is okay for parents to bring their children of all ages in to Alcohol only establishments, into bars, nightclubs and legions..
My gawd, Christy proves once again that she missed the brain train at youth and rode the braindead one way ride to densecity..
First off, restaurants that serve liquor have always allowed children to come in and eat with or without parents..
As for clubs and bars... Grownups and young adults go there to mingle, to flirt, to play pool and darts and of course to cheer on sporting teams on the big screens...Bar goers swear, they curse, there is sexual talking and sexual innuendos..
Men looking for available ladies and vice versa..
I for one never drink alone and only rarely drink in bars, however if I do and there were children present, ..4 years old...5 years..10..15...17...nursing mothers..etc, ...I would walk out the door..
In bars there are always conflicts, that`s why there are bouncers present, you all have heard of backroom drivers, I can picture back-table parenting, tables of adults telling parents with kids or children to stop swearing, stop talking sex etc etc etc...And the fights will ensue..
Also, there are automated lottery machines and pull-tab gaming devices, kids do have pocket money, and or parents letting their children pull open the gaming tabs at their table
Smoking patios and or outdoor smoking, it happens at every bar and club, there too parents would be harassed if their children were exposed to smoke..
Does Christy Clark want parents and adults to encourage our youth to start bar hopping and drinking as early as possible.... son and daughter, as soon as you are legally allowed this is the place you need to be, bring on the happy hour drink specials
Is Christy Clark a suitable parent, we know she listened to Hamish when Hamish asked her mom to race through a red light in Vancouver..
My feeling is many bars would lose money by allowing seating to be used by non-alcohol consuming customers...Each bar seat, on average makes a bar or club $25,000.00 dollars per year in alcohol sales....How much will they make with water or pop drinking children, maybe bars and clubs can start selling baby formula too..Let`s inundate those children from birth into the pub scene..
And there are legal issues, if bars(some) allow under-aged children with adults to attend their establishment and some don`t, does not that open up human right challenges against those bar and club owners who resist or deny children and babies in their club..
And what of young adult babysitters of drinking age, or custodians or coaches, or a school field trip, can they bring young children to the bar, or will club owners have to make these adults prove paternal parenthood, can a school outing bring an entire class into a booze only establishment while a few adults drink.
The restaurant association of British Columbia has already come out in favour of these rules changes, why..Well, they can already have children with or without adults in their restaurants, so, the answer is simple why the restaurant association is in favour..
It opens up the licensing issue, these restaurants can morph into bars, thus defeating the stringent rules and hoops current bar and club owners have to jump through..
Does Christy Clark believe the road to provincial prosperity hinges on turning everyone into gambling and drinking addicts, yes many BCers may very well resort to getting drunk after reviewing the state of our provincial books..
And the utter hypocrisy, these BC Liberals brought in illegal and very strict drinking and driving rules yet at the same time Christy Clark wants more booze at galleries, flea markets, beaches, golf courses, ski hills, more booze everywhere and everyone knows that despite claims by many that they won`t drink and drive the very nature of alcohol impairs one`s decision making ability..
Adults drive to all these places, adults drive to the mountain, drive to galleries and flea markets, no amount of drinking is acceptable if one is planning on driving shortly thereafter, ..one drink can impair a non drinker, or drinking on a empty stomach, the interaction of liquor with drugs, prescription drugs, opioid, psychotropic drugs..
And I am just wondering how many provincial politicians will attend the first funeral of the family slaughtered as a result of impaired parents driving home from booze only establishments with their children..
Clearly Christy Clark and the BC Liberal Government lost their moral compass, actually, Christy milfgate Clark never ever had a moral compass..
Maybe Christy Clark wants to bring Hamish with her to those oyster bar planning sessions to help her with her Government decision making?
