  • NLC Severs Ties With Winemaker Amid Sexual Misconduct Allegations

    The Newfoundland Liquor Commission says it won’t re-stock Norman Hardie wines amid sexual misconduct allegations against the Ontario winemaker.

    NLC issued a statement yesterday saying it is disappointed and concerned with the alleged behaviour of Norman Hardie.

    It says NLC is committed to ensuring its employees operate in a safe and harassment-free workplace.

    The Liquor Commission says at this time it does not intend to re-stock the companies wines, but it will ultimately leave the decision on whether or not to purchase existing inventory up to its customers.

    A recent Globe and Mail investigation revealed what the paper says was a “wide-ranging pattern of alleged sexual advances and sexual harassment” by Hardie.

    Since then liquor commissions and restaurants have begun severing their ties with the winemaker.
