A lot of people have heard about the ban on mermaid tails and monofins in Edmonton, Alberta. I am an aspiring professional mermaid and this ban on monofins and mermaid tails is affecting not only me but anyone who has ever dreamed of being a creature of the deep. Instead of having them banned, I would love to see rules put into place to ensure the safety of people who choose to train and dream of life as a mermaid.
I would love to see rules such as a swim test before the monofins or tails are able to be used in public pools, proof that you are comfortable, confident as well as skilled enough to use more advanced gear.
lets not ban a dream but instead put rules forth so we can follow our dreams safely. please sign.
