Jim Brogno, owner of The Canuck (formerly The Canadian), issued a statement surrounding media reports and his establishment.
Brogno states, “Due to all of the misinformation that has been said about The Canuck and threats to my life and my business, I feel that this is an appropriate time to make a statement.
I am for freedom of choice. As far the business goes, we are following the Algoma Public Heath mandate to its fullest. Here at The Canuck we take the health and safety of our staff and customers very seriously.
We have been a popular place to eat and drink in the community for over 40 years in the community and would like to continue the tradition and we look forward to seeing all of our loyal customers back at the bar. Cheers and be safe!”
