Tragedy veers towards farce

Two charged in cottage country crash left ClubLink six months before the accident

The death of three young men in a car crash in the ritzy cottage country north of Toronto last summer was a tragedy. But the fallout is fast beginning to border on farce. Earlier this week, the police charged 16 people at a golf club where the group had been drinking (reportedly ordering 31 drinks over 3 hours) with 34 Liquor Licence Act offences for serving alcohol to an intoxicated person. While already a surprisingly ambitious response by the police (and a potentially scary precedent for bar owners), it turns out two of the people charged were former board members who had left the company, ClubLink, six months before the accident. One of them told the Toronto Star he is “not exactly a happy camper.”
