The annual Shores of Erie Wine Festival "will no longer happen," after being fined $65,625 for liquor licence offences connected with the death of Emily Bernauer, says the event's chair. Shores of Erie Wine Festival guilty of liquor licence offences in connection with teen's death Bernauer, 18, crashed her car and died after working a shift with a wine festival vendor in September 2014. Toxicology reports confirmed there was alcohol in her system at the time of the crash. "We were all a little numb," said chairperson Karen Gyorgy shortly after the judge assessed the fines. "I think that they feel terrible about what is obviously a tragedy," said defence lawyer Patrick Ducharme.  The car Bernauer was driving left the road and crashed into the front yard of a home on Concession 2 North, in Amherstburg, after striking a mailbox.

A lawyer for the 18-year-old's family asked for a $150,000 fine for two liquor licence charges connected to her death.  The Shores of Erie Wine Festival Corp. was found guilty of failing to inspect ID of a person apparently under the age of 19 and for allowing a person under the age of 19 to drink liquor. Family calls for chief to resign After the verdict Christian Bernauer, the teen's father, thanked the assistant Crown attorney but said police chief Timothy Berthiaume made the past three years "very difficult" for the family and should step down. The family disputes reports suggesting in addition to alcohol the teen also had tetrahydrocanabinol (THC), a chemical compound found in marijuana, in her system at the time of the crash.  Emily Bernauer family launches civil suit against festival The family provided reporters at court with a list of questions they wanted media to ask police about statements made after the woman's death — specifically about the possibility the teen was texting and driving and could have used marijuana on the night of the crash — which the family claims are untrue. "We want him to resign," Bernauer added. "There are a lot of great police officers in Amherstburg and we think they should put someone in there who can do the job properly."
