Virginia Labelle, vice-president of Yukon Liquor Corp., stated the capital investment guideline, which ranges from $100,000 to $250,000, is just one of several measures to determine if an applicant would be a “reputable owner.”

I wonder what the additional guidelines are and if they are as offensive and discriminatory as this one.

One’s reputation is not solely based on one’s financial net worth or political network. Yukon Liquor Corp. should not set the bar so high as to discourage future ventures in the pub business as it will prove to be quite profitable for the corporation, and it should review the criteria that makes a person reputable.
