Several Richmond Hill restaurants are petitioning the city in an attempt to allow them to sell alcohol by the drink on Sunday.
The petition, which was written on paper bearing Molly McPherson’s letterhead, is requesting city council put the issue on a referendum for city residents to decide.
“We are asking the governing authorities for strct guidelines for the pouring of alcohol so stand-alone bars or package stores are not allowed,” the petition said, while also noting residents “would be the ones making a bad business decision by voting no on this referendum. We will have allowed thousands - possibily millions - of tax dollars to escape into neighboring counties.”
Molly MacPherson’s owner Daniel Cloutier said the petition is aimed at helping Richmond Hill restaurants because, “people leave here on Sundays and go spend their money in ."
The petition was reportedly delivered to city officials today.
