Brampton moves to licence clowns, Santa Clauses & magicians
"Brampton council is moving ahead with plans to licence clowns and other children’s entertainers despite objections from city staff and those working in the industry.
Councillors voted on Wednesday in favour of Coun. Paul Pelleschi’s motion, which would require criminal background checks for clowns, Santa Clauses, magicians and the like. The entertainers would also have to pay a nominal fee."
