A pub in the Cathedral neighbourhood has released a statement after a managing partner was charged in an attempted bank robbery.

“We are thankful no one was hurt and we are attempting to find out why this occurred.”
The post concludes with, “It will be business as usual at the pub. Please come in.”
Patrick Shannon is charged with break and enter, resisting arrest and two counts of assaulting a police officer.
