Toronto bars opened early for the gold medal hockey game, but a new group has launched an online campaign calling for bars to be open late on a permanent basis.

Last Call TO has launched a website pushing for last call to come two hours later in Toronto. It's currently 2 a.m. but the group wants to see it extended to 4 a.m.

Last Call TO believes as a world class city, Toronto's nightlife could be better with longer serving hours.

The group says Torontonians should be treated like adults and extending serving would be good for business and actually make the city safer (by reducing the number of after-hours clubs).

Under provincial legislation the city has the ability to change serving times for events of "municipal, provincial, national or international significance."
