Regulate the Tourist Information Visitor Centre Busking Spot to Prohibit Loud Acts

This petition had 212 supporters


Please sign this petition requesting a change for Victoria's licensed lower causeway buskers. Specifically, we, the buskers, are asking that the excessively loud sax/trumpet/marimba/electric guitar/drums acts performing with city licenses on the upper causeway at the Tourist Information Visitor Centre be transferred to a performance location that will not impede, offend, or drown out other busking musicians or monopolize this venue deemed available to all. Victoria City Bylaw - Schedule B (1) clearly states – “A street entertainer shall not perform so closely to another entertainer so as to unreasonably interfere with that other street entertainer’s performance”. As the lower and upper causeway technically fall within different jurisdictions making enforcement of this bylaw difficult, we feel that this solution is the best compromise that accommodates all entertainers on both causeways. We are asking due consideration and respect for our city’s buskers that will allow residents and visitors alike to appreciate all that our Victoria causeway has to offer.
