    Angry Is Underage Drinking Acceptable In Ontario?

    My question involves criminal law for the province of: Ontario

    Hey I know that this forum is mainly for american law, but I was hoping to get some help anyhow. I just wanted to know whether under-aged drinking is acceptible in Ontario under these conditions:
    1. It is supervised by the parents
    2. It is at the residence of the child

    According to wikipedia:

    "Underage drinking under adult supervision is permitted in licensed premises in the provinces ... Ontario ..."

    However I do not understand the meaning of licensed. Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated. I am in a bet

    Default Re: Is Underage Drinking Acceptible In Ontario?

    This is what I found at http://www.e-laws.gov.on.ca/html/sta...l19_e.htm#BK29 under the "Responsible Use" section.
    ----------

    Supply by parent

    (13) This section does not apply,

    (a) to the supplying of liquor to a person under nineteen years of age in a residence as defined in section 31 or in a private place as defined in the regulations by a parent of the person or a person having lawful custody of the person; or

    (b) to the consumption of liquor by a person who is supplied liquor in a manner described in clause (a), if the liquor is consumed at the place where it is supplied. R.S.O. 1990, c. L.19, s. 30 (13).

    --------------
    Unlawful possession or consumption

    Definition

    31. (1) In this section,

    “residence” means a place that is actually occupied and used as a dwelling, whether or not in common with other persons, including all premises used in conjunction with the place to which the general public is not invited or permitted access, and, if the place occupied and used as a dwelling is a tent, includes the land immediately adjacent to and used in conjunction with the tent. R.S.O. 1990, c. L.19, s. 31 (1).
