A judge ordered the Yukon Liquor Corporation to disclose all documents it used in denying a request for an off-sales licence on the Alaska Highway.
The legal wrangling over Heather’s Snack Haven’s off-sales licence continues after a case management conference earlier this month.
The convenience store and restaurant, owned by Heather and Ken Achtymichuk, applied for the licence last November 17.
The Yukon Liquor Board rejected the request without providing written reasons after a January 27 meeting.
The court later requested more information and the board pointed to insufficient financial information to prove the business’s main money-maker was its restaurant operation.
As a restaurant, an off-sales licence can only be granted to a business that derives most of its money from food.
But the judge made a further request for materials on April 13, demanding that the board file new documents by today.
The Casa Loma Hotel and the Kopper King, which both also sell alcohol along the same stretch of highway north of Whitehorse, are intervenors in the case.
