Saint John gay bar issue

Club Montreal, a gay bar in Saint John; hopes to get permission to have male Chip ‘n’ Dale dancers perform, but the city wants the province to reconsider.

Mayor Don Darling wrote a letter to the public safety minister.

His letter readsĀ  “While standards attached to licenses issued by the Department of Public Safety prohibit full nudity and contact between performers and patrons it is also our understanding that activities may occur in the unlicensed areas of the facility.”

Darling added that adult entertainment is not permitted uptown, only in adult entertainment commercial zones.
