A restaurant in Hope generated a lot of media coverage – and customers – for refusing to ask diners to present a PO. Vaccine card.
But on October 7, the District of Hope decided to act. He confirmed to Global BC News that he suspended Rolly’s Restaurant’s business license for six months for defying a provincial health ordinance.
If the restaurant continues to operate, it will be fined $ 100 per day.
Rolly’s remained open on October 7th.
The restaurant has become a gathering place for anti-vaccine-passport activists from across the Lower Mainland. Shortly before the September 20 election, it was the site of a People’s Party of Canada rally.
Under WorkSafe BC regulations, employers must develop a COVID-19 safety plan outlining protocols and policies to reduce the transmission of the virus in the workplace.
These plans must be posted inside the company.
There is no indication yet whether the BC government, WorkSafe BC or Fraser Health will impose further sanctions on Rolly’s.
Late last month and earlier this month, anti-vaccine-passport campaigners staged protests outside Vancouver restaurants that are complying with the provincial health ordinance regarding the BC Vaccine Card.
