McMurray; fourth Alberta community to introduce a BBN
On Thursday, February 25 at the McMurray Experience at Jubilee
Centre in Fort McMurray, Best Bar None Wood Buffalo was introduced
to the public.
Members of the media joined Wood Buffalo RCMP, the Regional
Municipality of Wood Buffalo, the Alberta Gaming and Liquor
Commission and operators from over half a dozen of the town's
licensed establishments to launch the region's first Best Bar None
The region joins the communities of Edmonton, Calgary and Grande
Prairie with a Best Bar None program. Currently, over 120 licensed
establishments are accredited in those cities.
"Best Bar None will provide licensees with tools they can apply
to daily operations to reduce the risk of alcohol-related harm,
disorder and crime and will help them be better prepared for any
incidents. By becoming a Best Bar None accredited venue, licensees
will be able to showcase to patrons their commitment to providing a
safe and fun night out," announced AGLC President and Chief
Executive Officer Bill Robinson to the room.
"And through our annual awards event, the program also rewards
licensees who 'raise the bar' with respect to their operating
standards and procedures."
Interested licensed premises are invited to contact Best Bar
None about the program at email@example.com.
The crowd at
Jubilee Centre gathers to hear the BBN Launch presentations.
"I am confident
that having BBN in Wood Buffalo will contribute to the overall
safety and higher quality of life in this community."
Bill Robinson - AGLC President and Chief Executive Officer
