Scenes that remind of the American prohibition in Canada, as a pizza place in the city Edmonton was raided by the police. Employees started their own lucrative business as they were selling beer and hard liquor after hours, concealed in pizza boxes. In Canada it’s illegal to sell any alcoholic drink between 2 and 11 am. A ridiculous 9 hour window that necessitates good planning or good connections in the delivery business.
Edmonton had such a place, although the local police refused to reveal the name of the pizzeria. A total of 240 beer cans and 100 bottles of hard liquor were found, with a total worth of 2.000 Canadian Dollars (1360 Euros). Police suspects the “street value” of the illegal booze was twice as high. The pizza place was closed for a day and faces more penalties, which include revoking its business license. The four employees in the place also face fines.
