WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT CANNABIS When Serving Alcohol

Production and sale of cannabis edibles, extracts and topicals became legal in Canada in October. It is up to you to make sure liquor is not sold or served to guests who have had too much to drink or appear to be intoxicated by another substance. 

Combining alcohol with cannabis can greatly increase impairment. Food and beverage servers and bartenders need to know how to deal with customers who may be under the influence of cannabis.  Read More

Small production wineries are not new, but they may satisfy the modern customer in a new way.

Small production winery owners consistently adopt a “way-of-life” approach to their craft.

WHY IS HUMAN TRAFFICKING an Under Reported Crime?

By Cst. Tina Platford, Crime Reduction Unit, Royal Canadian Mounted Police

Victim cooperation is crucial to the successful outcome of a human trafficking charge. From the initial statement to testimony in court, the victim provides key evidence to prove the charges. The process of converting a sex trafficking victim into a cooperative witness can often be volatile and intense.

Victims often fear for their safety, or that of their families’, and are often ashamed or embarrassed about their ordeal, fearing being exposed and stigmatized. Some sex workers do not recognize themselves as victims and have accepted their predicament. Read More

NO, Change isn't Good Enough

George Marshall, CEO, Service Hospitality

2009 was arguably the worst year for health and safety in the history of the hotel industry in Saskatchewan.  For the fourth straight year, injuries exceeded 580 and for the second straight year, direct costs of injuries exceeded $2.8 million.  In 2010, Service Hospitality issued a challenge to the hotel industry.  We formed a best practice group for the hotel industry and 43 of the largest hotels in the province committed to implementing and improving their safety management systems.  Although we helped to facilitate the process, you did the work.  The results have been extraordinary.
