Quebec restaurant removes customers alcohol mid-meal to accommodate Muslims
The following RAIR Foundation interview with Islamic expert, Dr. Bill Warner, discusses the implications of a Canadian restaurant imposing Sharia law on non-muslims.
In Quebec it is common for restaurants that do not have a liquor licence, to allow patrons to bring their own wine to be decanted by the staff. In this case, the patrons, who were regulars of the establishment, had made special arrangements beforehand to make sure all was well for a party they had planned.
After the first course of the meal was served, the "moderate muslim" restaurants owner informed the party that all glasses and bottles with wine would have to be removed from the room so they could accommodate a group of "religious" muslims. The more observant muslims were scheduled to come in to another part of the restaurant and they would not tolerate any alcohol in the premises.
