Council withdraws objection to nightclub

Common Council has withdrawn a letter which could have threatened a new gay nightclub uptown, according to the Telegraph-Journal.

Club Montreal has applied for an exotic entertainment license to allow for “Chip’n’Dale” type male dancers.

Mayor Don Darling drafted a letter requesting the province reconsider the application. Now he admits the letter may have been based on some miscommunication about what would be going on in the nightclub.  Club Montreal’s owner Joshua Ernst told the Telegraph-Journal it was not going to be a strip club. The dancers would never be nude and there’d be no contact with patrons.

Darling says it has become clear that Ernst did not intend to doing anything that would violate any zoning bylaws.
