City Council's policies allow for beer gardens for fundraising at special events, but the Facilities Department had a number of concerns about drinks being served during the regular season. Staff has not received the proper training to work in a licensed premises, and as the owner of the North Peace Arena, the City would take on an additional liability risk. In addition, there is worry that allowing regular season beer gardens would set a precedent, establishing the arena as a drinking venue, and opening the door for other groups like the Huskies and the Adult Rec League.

The requests to hold beer gardens at the special events next year were approved, and are now subject to RCMP approval.

The Flyers have recently received a formal written warning for drinking alcohol in the dressing rooms, which is against City's policies. If any infraction occur between now and those events, the RCMP has the option of denying their licence.
