The Nelson Street Pub, located in Pembroke, Ontario, called on the provincial government to reopen patios while revealing an invoice addressed to the premier.

The bill, which is a whopping $5,023, was supposedly racked up after the bar installed 12 kegs, which will now go stale from not being used. 

"If people are able to be outdoors now for playgrounds, with distancing, why can’t they sit 2 meters apart outdoors, at a restaurant, that has always had enhanced sanitary measures. So we can at least sell our beer, sell our food, instead of throwing it out of letting it go to waste," the pub told Narcity in a statement.  

This isn't the first spot to speak out after Ford announced restaurant closures. A Toronto restaurant, Antler Kitchen & Bar, also sent Ford an invoice for spoiled beer.
