The Fraser Health Authority could seek a restraining order to force the closure of a Hope, BC, restaurant that continues to operate despite being ordered to close.

The District of Hope confirmed statutors served a company license suspension for Rolly’s restaurant Thursday for failing to comply with BC vaccine card rules.

However, a woman who picked up the phone in the restaurant and only identified herself as Marlene on Thursday said it was “business as usual” because the situation “was just ridiculous” and that the situation “was not about health.”

Secretary of Public Safety Mike Farnworth said Rollys will have his liquor suspended, which is a separate sentence than the action Fraser Health could take.

John Fortoloczky, executive director of the District of Hope, also said that if the restaurant continued to operate, it could be fined $ 100 for each day it was open.
