Point blank

 Marystown bylaw banning circuses to come into effect following June 27 Cirque Estival.

Coun. Leonard Pittman brought forward the unanimously supported motion, calling for the ban during a meeting last week, although at least one councillor who voted in support of the proposal did so with some reservation.

Coun. Albert Stacey wondered if council was censoring what people can watch or attend by prohibiting circuses featuring animals.

“I’ve got some mixed feelings on whether I should be telling a person that you can’t see (a certain event) in Marystown … am I censoring what they are allowed to watch?

“If they don’t want to watch it, they wouldn’t go watch it, but I still think they should be given the opportunity. Right now we’re shutting them down point blank.”
