Ban sparks difference of opinion between Beach and Scarborough councillors Beach Mirror By David Nickle Cars driving south on Victoria Park Avenue during the morning rush hour will still have to veer eastward rather than drive into the Beach’s Bracken Avenue, Toronto Council has decided. The May 7 vote overturns a recommendation from the city’s public works and infrastructure committee, to end the right-turn prohibition that has been in place for more than two decades. The right-turn prohibition means cars heading down the narrow, southern portion of Victoria Park are forced to veer sharply to the left rather than turn right onto the residential street. The prohibition was brought in by former Toronto Councillor Tom Jakobek, prior to amalgamation — a move that followed a number of other left turn prohibitions along Kingston Road to the north, in Scarborough. Because Victoria Park marks the border between the old Scarborough and the old Toronto, the issue has been impossible to deal with locally — and Scarborough Southwest Councillor Gary Crawford urged his colleagues to stick with the works committee recommendation. “From my perspective (the current situation) is absolutely not fair, and incredibly unsafe for the residents on the street,” said Crawford. “A lot of the residents have an incredible time even trying to get out of their driveways in the morning.”He asked council to go ahead and rescind the right-turn prohibition, then study the results of the move in 2015.

The baseball-themed craft brewery, owned by Leslieville residents Mark and Mandie Murphy, currently brews its beers at Grand River Brewing in Cambridge, Ontario and Barley Days Brewery in Picton, Ontario.

Technically, contract brewers, like Left Field Brewery, are only allowed to sell to the LCBO, The Beer Store, and licensed bars and restaurants. Despite this usually-not-enforced law, contract brewers have been selling their products in SOP festivals and events for years as this law is rarely enforced. “Despite the fact that our beer is brewed at licensed breweries, has been lab tested by the LCBO and is consumed safely at over 60 bars and restaurants every day, we’ve learned that the AGCO deems the activity of us selling directly to SOP permit holders, including beer festival organizers, as illegal,” Left Field Brewery said in a May 2 release. “That’s right, a brewery who is licensed to sell beer in Ontario cannot sell beer
