After years locked in a battle with a policing hospitality unit, the owner of an Edmonton shisha bar has won his fight to stay open.
On Tuesday, an appeal committee overturned a decision by the city’s licensing department to shut down Nyala Lounge, located northeast of downtown.
“I think the city went one step forward, we appreciate that, as the African-Canadian community, we thank the city councillors,” said owner Mulugeta Tesfay.
“The people spoke, the community spoke, the place is safe.”
