Pinball Legalized in Montreal!

Post by Movingpictures »

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

North Star Machines à Piastres’s Push for Pinball Legalization Pays Off: Plateau Mont-Royal Approves By-Law Change. Celebration planned for Friday, April 7, 2017.

MONTREAL, March 7, 2017 – After petitioning the city for two years to change an outdated by- law, the team behind North Star Machines à Piastres has made Montreal, and pinball, history. A party in celebration of the momentous occasion is planned for April 7, 2017.

“Bringing pinball back onto the streets of Montreal has been a lengthy and challenging process,” says Adam Kiesler, co-owner. “However, the reward of sharing my passion and pinball machine collection with the city has been well worth the effort, as seeing our guests rekindle their love with the silver ball, or experience it for the first time, is a dream come true.”

In 1956, the newly appointed mayor of Montreal, Jean Drapeau, pushed through a by-law banning the operation of pinball machines across the city. This ban stuck until 1977 when bill C- 71 was amended at the Federal level, paving the way for the commercial operation of pinball in major Canadian cities. In Montreal, however, borough specific by-laws were established to restrict amusement halls to a small portion of the city, away from parks, schools, and bars, citing the protection of children.

In a 2015 interview with CBC News, Borough Councillor Christine Gosselin expressed that the by-law is “obviously no longer current.” With the prohibitive by-law officially off the books as of today, Montreal’s first and only pinball bar is chiming with excitement.

“I strongly believe that we have succeeded in saving part of ourselves as Montrealers” expresses co-owner Robert A. Barake. Having been in the coin operated amusement industry for well over 30 years, he is “very proud to be part of this positive change in reuniting Montrealers with a slice of their past, and even more importantly introducing younger generations to the vital social interaction that can be had via such a tactile entertainment device —a pinball machine.”

North Star is hosting a massive party to ring in the new era of pinball in Montreal on Friday, April 7, 2017. Expect a night to remember, with plenty of surprises and special appearances for this once in a lifetime celebration.

About North Star Machines à Piastres:
Montreal's first pinball bar is an extraordinary tribute to the rich and colourful history of pinball machines and of our metropolis. Named after Montreal’s only pinball manufacturer North Star Coin Machine Co., which produced machines in the late 1940s, North Star specializes in expertly restored vintage pinball and analogue machinery. The bar offers a vast selection of craft beers and original cocktails. Established in 2015, this unique Montreal institution is located at 3908 Boulevard St-Laurent.

POUR DIFFUSION IMMÉDIATE

Victoire pour North Star Machines à Piastres: le Plateau Mont-Royal approuve un changement dans le règlement municipal. Célébration prévue pour le vendredi 7 avril, 2017.

MONTRÉAL, 7 MARS, 2017 – Après deux ans de pétitions afin de faire réviser un règlement municipal désuet, l’équipe de North Star Machines à Piastres a changé le cours de l’histoire de notre ville, et, du même coup, celui du pinball. Une fête est prévue pour souligner cet événement le 7 avril 2017.

«Réintroduire le pinball dans les rues de Montréal a été un processus long et exigeant» avoue Adam Kiesler, co-propriétaire. «Mais le simple plaisir de pouvoir partager ma passion pour les machines à boules, ainsi que ma collection de machines, a valu la peine. Faire partie de ce regain d’intérêt, de voir nos invités retomber en amour avec la balle d’argent, ou d’avoir leur premier coup de foudre... C’est un rêve devenu réalité.»

En 1956, le nouveau maire de Montréal, Jean Drapeau, a tenu à faire adopter un règlement municipal interdisant l’opération de machines à boules à travers la ville. Le statu quo changea en 1977, lorsque la Loi C-71 fût adoptée au fédéral. La législation permettait l’opération commerciale de pinball dans certaines villes canadiennes. Malheureusement, à Montréal, des règlements municipaux spécifiques à chaque quartier furent établis afin de restreindre les arcades à certains coins de la ville, loin des parcs, écoles, et bars. Ces règlements avaient pour but de protéger les enfants.

En 2015, la conseillère de l’arrondissement Plateau Mont-Royal, madame Christine Gosselin a exprimé dans une entrevue avec CBC que ce règlement municipal est «clairement désuet.» Maintenant que ce règlement n’est plus applicable, le premier et unique bar de pinball à Montréal résonne de joie.

«Je crois franchement que nous avons sauvé une partie de notre notre identité Montréalaise» exprime Robert A. Baraké, co-propriétaire. Après plus de trente ans d’expérience dans l’industrie des machines d’amusement, il est très fier d’avoir pu faire partie de ce changement positif, de pouvoir réunir Montréal avec cette partie de son histoire. «Et, ce qui est encore plus important, c’est de pouvoir initier une nouvelle génération à cette expérience vitale, cette interaction sociale qui est supportée par une machine plus tactile: une machine à boules.»

North Star organisera une fête afin de célébrer cette nouvelle ère pour le pinball à Montréal, le vendredi 7 avril 2017. Attendez-vous à une soirée mémorable, pleine de surprises; une fête pour la communauté.

À propos de North Star Machines à Piastres:
Le premier bar à pinball de Montréal est un hommage à l’historique riche et coloré des machines à boules et de notre métropole. Nommé en l’honneur du seul manufacturier de machines à boules à Montréal, North Star Coin Machine Co. (qui produit des machines à la fin des années 1940). North Star se spécialise en machines analogues et vintage, restaurées avec amour et habileté. Le bar offre aussi une sélection de bières artisanales et de cocktails originaux. Établi en 2015, cette institution uniquement Montréalaise est située au 3908 boulevard Saint-Laurent.

Montreal, March 8th, 2017

Plateau Mont-Royal Approves long over-due By-Law Change.

Adam Kiesler was seen flashing a reversed peace sign at the constraints from the past on the Main this morning as Leonard Cohen’s ghost walked by and bowed in front of the North Star. This change has also opened the door for a next generation of operators on the Plateau. This will likely generate more craziness beyond this borough, since once a door is opened many more usually follow. This change in the by law has now consequently set a precedent in the GMA.

Local Hipsters are dumbfounded by this press release and can’t understand that there was ever an issue associated with the pinball machines which they have been enjoying at the North Star for the past year. I-phone use has increased significantly since this press release hit the web as young people born after 1994 searched for answers concerning this conundrum. When they found very little info from their usual on-line feeds & sources about why pinball was considered nasty in the past, they decided to ask somebody older than their their screens. I-phone use then dropped significantly while they played pinball on a real table in a real bar talking to a real person and trying to make sense of what the reincarnated beatnik repair guy was babbling about in such a lively manner all this time.

Phone conversation recorded earlier this week

“Hey Rob, its Adam. The by law got through a third reading and it looks like it’s gonna get the rubber stamp from city council tomorrow around 3PM.”

“Dude, that’s shithouse ! Be proud, and I think you should grow a big hairy mustache in celebration ‘cause you made this happen pretty much on your own. Time to forget about those who so arrogantly said that it would never happen, and time to grasp the full implications of this thing. We have opened the door for others, so be proud damn it, we are god-dam vanguards !”

Author's Note :

All the above to be read in a tongue and cheek manner, especially for those poor bastards who have lost their sense of humour in this new age.

Une règle suivi gueri de tout. A rule respected can cure anything.

A philosophy of doing shall rule til the days when I can no longer "do" arrive. Because when I am too old to wipe my own ass, adjust an AX relay or relieve a woman from sighing, there will be only memories to fill my time. So, the task at hand is to build a RRSP of memories, come hell or calm tides.

P.S. Some of us need something to do besides contemplate how important everyone has suddenly become in a world of exaggerated self-promotion upheld by the new dumb.

Below is some legal history with a twist about pinball's shady past.

Tonight I will have a few "Death Save" cocktails at the North Star, play Paragon and King Pin in honor of saving pinballs' ass on the Plateau. If anyone wants to share shady stories from the past, feel free to join me.


In 1956, the newly “appointed” mayor of Montreal, Jean Drapeau (who previously was a young crazy looking crusading moralistic lawyer with a little mustache) decided to clean up Montreal (nice try). Drapeau and his side-kick lawyer buddy Pax Plante who turned out to be a bit of a tarmac was later driven out of town by Montreal Mobsters in the 60’s. Drapeau worked hard on getting laws on the books to stop people in Montreal from acting immorally in public. Through this crusade, Drapeau managed to push through a by-law banning the operation of pinball machines across the city claiming that they were simply well disguised slot machines (and they were, especially bingos). This ban stuck until 1977 when bill C- 71 was read in the house of commons and amended the criminal code at the Federal level, redefining the lines between an amusement machine awarding replays and a slot machine awarding monies. (In fact, it is a little more complicated than that, but I will tell you that story when you are older along with why the cops had a lot to lose as well) This amendment helped to pave the way for the commercial operation of pinballs in major Canadian cities once again, but by then pinball machines were being designed with more of an amusement angle in mind anyway. So the time was right to “open the flood gates” as Mac Levin of the old Regent Amusements in Ottawa was heard to say as he walked out of a court room and lit a big fat cigar in 1978. In Montreal, however, borough specific by-laws were established to restrict amusement halls to the downtown core, and hence pissing off suburban teenagers in obliging them to take the bus and metro downtown for an amusement fix with their friends after drinking recycled beer at the Peel Pub.

“Ah those are the days I want to hold ya man.”

Hell, don’t forget, children still had to be protected from the evils of coin-op amusement and must stay in school and nearby parks so pedophiles can find them more easily.

He smoked but not sure about cigars.

I was lead to believe by him that he was the guy that did it and he was very powerful back then so I believed it.

That generation of operators was something to reckon with. You didn't want to cross them unless you meant business and were ready to put your money where you livelihood was.

I think that this new generation of operators that we are seeing emerging lately, especially in Ottawa and now in Montreal and Toronto will have hopefully learned that cheating, lying and stealing is not the way to go anymore. Our community is relatively small, and the scroudrels are now much easier to spot. You can not stay in this business by lying and ripping people off and saying that it is just business. Times have changed, some people just haven't understood this or want to believe that they don't have to play fair because, well, it is "just business" and they have to feed their family. Well grow a vegetable garden and raise chickens then. Short term thinking is a big mistake these days, especially since the future of pinball culture is precarious at best.

It was serious business back then, I have seen a lot.

You are right and I know there are some operators that think that cheating, lying and stealing is still okay and I am sure it won't take long for them to find out that they will be on the street if they keep it up. Or maybe not? LOL

From what I have heard Del was connected, a machine got stolen from another operator back in the day and Del said "I will take care of it" and it was sitting in his shop the next day. I have only been in the business for 31 years and I can't just imagine how things must have been before. It was pretty heavy duty when I got into it.

Sorry for the thread highjack but I had a lot of respect for Del Lavergne, he was hard to work for but he would be the nicest person after work. He bought me lunch, dinner and beer at the restaurant for years.

Just on the funny side, now i can open an arcade with pinballs near a school with no side effect for teenagers ? :lol: :lol:
Where's the drugs, prostitution, pedophily, street gang and etc ... vanished ??

Sorry mais on m'as tellement rentrer dans la tête, quand j'était ado, que les arcades étaient une entrée vers les enfer et les décadences de toutes les sortes :lol: :lol:

Je crois qu'ils auraient dû mettre les arcades proche des écoles dans les années 80' car les arcades que je fréquentais le plus était souvent situé a coté des bar de danseuses, pas trop une belle influence pour un ado de 14 dans les années 80'
Y'avais pas juste du joli monde au coin de St-Laurent et St-Catherines a cette époque :lol:
