Saga of one restaurant closure

There’s been a fair bit of news about the closure of one restaurant: the vegetarian branch of L’Gros Luxe on St-André, which had already faced noise complaints and fines, finally closed up last week. The storefront was on a corner of a residential street.

A debate on reddit quickly restated a discussion we’ve had on the blog and which is resumed every time a story like this comes along:
Voice 1: People should not live in the livelier parts of town if they want absolute silence after 11 pm
Voice 2: Wherever anyone lives in town, they have the right to quality of life.

And it goes round and round without resolution.
