LDS Family Services Opposes Liquor Store
Lethbridge Canada Herald pgA3 19May00 D1

LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA, CANADA -- Like many of its neighbors, the LDS Family Services office in Lethbridge was surprised to learn that the deli next door had been approved for liquor sales by the city. So LDS Family Services challenged the permit, filing an appeal with the city's Subdivision and Development Appeal Board (SDAB).

The deli, Frank's Deli and Confectionery, had been granted permission to convert 600 square feet of retail space in the store to liquor sales. When the approval was discovered by LDS Family Services, they filed an appeal, represented by lawyer Richard Low, who is also a counselor in the Lethbridge Alberta West Stake Presidency.

Both LDS Family Services and a day care, also next door to the deli, claim that liquor sales are incompatible with the other tenets in the strip mall. Danni Bendkowski, owner of the Young World Daycare next door to the deli, thinks she may even loose clients because of the liquor sales. She says parents don't want to leave their children at a business located next to a liquor store. "I just don't think it's right," she said.

But on a 2-3 vote, the SDAB ruled against the appeal by LDS Family Services on Thursday, May 18th.
