Two city councillors are calling on the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario to revoke Muzik nightclub’s liquor license.
In a letter to the Toronto and East York Community Council, Councillors Mike Layton and Gord Perks say the club has been a “continued source of concern for local residents with
regard to loud noise, public urination, traffic and public intoxication amongst other issues with the Licensee’s operations. ”
The statement also say that between 2012 and 2015, the AGCO conducted 14 inspections of the Premises and have recorded six infractions, with fines totaling approximately $6,000.
Layton and Perks recommend that the AGCO suspend or revoke their licence ” on the grounds that the past and present conduct of the Licensee affords reasonable grounds that the
business will not be operating in accordance with the law.” They also want the City of Toronto’s solicitor to participate in any hearings that deal with Muzik’s liquor license going forward.
Earlier this month, two people were killed in a shooting that began inside the club, and slowly trickled outside. No arrests have been made in connection to the shooting.
Muzik is located on the Exhibition grounds, and leases the property from the City of Toronto.
