Rob Ford’s recent trip to Vancouver trip is lingering like a bad hangover.

The latest incident came Thursday as British Columbia liquor inspectors confirmed they’re investigating a pub in Coquitlam on allegations the establishment served the embattled Toronto mayor after hours.

Douglas Scott, the Liquor Control and Licensee Branch assistant deputy attorney minister, said in a statement authorities were looking into what may have happened.

“The liquor inspector is currently in the process of determining whether there is merit to these allegations,” Scott said. “Anytime information is received that an establishment may have violated the terms of its licence, the Liquor Control and Licensing Branch will gather the facts to determine whether a contravention has taken place.”

Ford was seen at the Foggy Dew Pub, next to his Coquitlam hotel, before he was served with a ticket for jaywalking two weeks ago.

At the time, he said the police singled him out and added “everybody jaywalks.”

“I said, ‘I can’t believe this,’” Ford told the Toronto Sun. “They (the RCMP) went out of their way to do this. I said, ‘I support you guys. Did you arrest me because I am a Broncos fan?’”
