As a liquor permit holder, you are responsible for all conduct that occurs on your premises. Laws in the Liquor Control Act allow for a finding of a citation violation whether the permit holder was aware of the activity or whether an employee was acting surreptitiously. Fortunately, the Liquor Control Commission will weigh all facts relevant to a given case, so even conduct which seems most egregious does not necessarily result in a revocation of the liquor permit.
