I found out about this last night, from the waiter at JoBlo. Supposedly they have been fighting the Verdun council for 6 years (!!) and have finally succeeded in winning their case. Forty seven years of "prohibition" in Verdun comes to an end! A bit of googling found some more articles related to the news! I recently moved out of Verdun, but still work and socialise in the area, and this is great news!
