Police Chief Seeks Beer Keg Registry

December 21, 2006

The police chief in London Ontario, home to the University of Western Ontario and Fanshawe College, wants Ontario to create the country's first "beer keg registry" to help investigators trace empty casks back to buyers. London Police Service Chief Murray Faulkner said that many Ontario police services face problems stemming from "out-of-control parties near postsecondary school campuses." Globe & Mail
