Price of beer may rise at Memorial University

Judge rules campus pub must start paying taxes

The Supreme Court of Newfoundland and Labrador has decided that the Breezeway, a Memorial University student pub, must start paying its municipal taxes, according to CBC News. The Memorial University Student Union had long argued that the bar and other money-generating businesses were exempt because of the union’s special status as a non-profit. The judge disagreed. The copy centre they own must start paying taxes too.
