LETTERS: Licence to share the faith?
An open letter to the City of White Rock.
I noticed on Saturday, at about 9:35 a.m. at Johnston and North Bluff, in the shade of Scotia Bank, the Jehovah’s Witness shift workers have set up a sophisticated brochure rack/banner to accompany their harassment of the public with the “Watch” newsletter.
Are they required to have busker’s licences to be set up at this intersection by the bus stop on such a regular basis? It really does get tiresome to encounter them and come-hither calls and then their rebuttals for no-thanks – “we will send you prayers and blessings.”
I am sure the people catching the bus find it as bothersome.
Free speech is fine, and the thought perhaps having faith promoted may be well meaning. I expect other promoters of other faiths, including Hari Krishna in robes with music and tambourines, would call more public response.
Kindly advise if a licence is required.
Pat Petrala, White Rock
