Gator Ted To Get His Day in Court

Caught Between Rock and Hard Place or Maybe Not

[ ED NOTE: Mbrandon8026 from Freedom Through Truth was kind enough to let me crosspost this item from his blog. You can read the original here.

For those of our dear readers who may live in or near Waterdown, I would also suggest that you grab something to eat and drink at Gator Ted’s. He deserves our support. ]

I have written about the case of Gator Ted Kindos and the nuisance complaint against him at the Ontario HRC/HRT here. The first problem is that the folks at the Ontario Kangaroo Court don’t see it that way, no vision, no passion, not much upstairs either, it seems.

So, let’s say you own a bar. What pray tell are the three critical success factors to your business? Some say, “location, location, location.” No, there are actually 3 distinct factors, and yes location is one of them. The other two are customer service, and your liquor license. You know what they call a bar without a liquor license – a statistic.

So, a medical doper smokes pot by the door to your bar, which you know jeopardizes your liquor license. In your best customer service voice you ask him to stop. End of story? Should have been.

Not it the doper claims he has a HUMAN RIGHT to smoke dope wherever he likes, and has a license for that as well. How do you fight that sh?t? Well, you have to get innovative and Ted Kindos and his lawyer are doing that, but not without resistance, and significant cost. The best news is that since the HRC/HRT process takes so long, you can do other things maybe to help your case along the way.

So, Kindos did. As reported in the National Post here:

Ted Kindos, owner of Gator Ted’s Tap and Grill in Burlington, Ont., is seeking a declaration from the Federal Court that people with a permit to smoke medicinal marijuana cannot do so in a public place or any licensed establishment.

He also wants the court to order Health Canada not to renew the permit of his former patron, Steve Gibson, arguing Mr. Gibson has not been in compliance with its terms of use.

    Let me say up front that I have no problem with medical marijauna . In fact I wish it had been available to my father for pain when he was in the hospital . That being said there is a time and a place for it to be inbibed . No family restaurant can survive if a patron is allowed to smoke on the premises or near the front doors . If my young child had to walk through a cloud of smoke to enter Gator Ted’s I would think twice before I would bring her there . It is not fair in any way , shape or form for one owner of one restaurant to have to bow to the wishes one one person . If you need medical marijuana I feel you should have it . Smoke in your home , your car , your parents home , your parents car , anywhere where your family or friends agree with your diagnosis and are behind you . This is not for public comsumption . Until and unless all the rest of us can legally smoke marijuana in public you should not be able to do so either . To burden one person or one restaurant with your selfish desire to make a stand on this issue is so unfair and ruins the goodwill of others behind you . Back off . Take your fight to the courts not on someones elses liveliehood .

  3. Agreed. This guy should be allowed to smoke medical marijuana, but he has to respect the wishes of those whom he’s smoking around, at the same time.

  5. Some laugh and mock at others about hiking 15 miles just to sleep on the cold hard ground.

    For those hikers who prefer heading out onto rocky trails, the best hiking
    boots for that kind of ground is a heavy duty pair. However, no need to panic if you are
    an animal rights activist as most fashion houses used synthetic fur for their collections.

    When purchasing any type of fragrance, one has to be aware not just of
    scents but also of concentration categories to determine if one is indeed getting value for money.
    Perfume, as it turns out, is perceived as a completely girly and
    dainty affair.
