LET­TER TO THE ED­I­TOR

Central Leader - - NEWS -

Should our only con­cern be for busi­ness prof­its? We must stop pan­der­ing to the liquor in­dus­try and adopt a rea­son­able ap­proach to th­ese abuses.

Hav­ing liquor on sale all hours is dumb – it’s not needed.

Let’s have sen­si­ble hours of busi­ness, say open­ing at 10am. If you need to drink be­fore that time you’ve prob­a­bly got a prob­lem. Shut­ting at 1.30am – fi­nal!

Sale of liquor should be 10am to 7pm. Most work­ers knock off at round 5pm.

If you’re not work­ing then you’ve got all day to shop.

This would give work­ers and own­ers time for a break and time for cleanup and re­stock, and city work­ers would have more time to re­fresh the streets.
