Nanny state District Councillor Peter McQueen thinks a bar called 'Jersey's Saloon' is just like a strip club despite the fact no one is getting naked.
Apparently an ad for the bar featured barmaids in short skirts dancing suggestively on the bar counter.
McQueen told CJAD, “The permit is not for a strip club, not for nudity, but if a woman wears skimpy enough clothing and dances in suggestive-enough a way, it's the same effect.”
What effect may that be? The arousal effect?
“The effect is the same, as if the woman were completely nude, so he's found a way to kind of get around the no strip club rule.”
Sounds like the worst strip club on the planet if that was the idea. Mainly because there's no stripping.
Peter Sergaks, the owner of the bar, doesn't agree with McQueen.
“No, no, no, it's not. It's a western saloon-type of bar. They're wearing hats, they're wearing shorts, and that's it. Nothing, nothing to that nature, nothing erotic,” he said and added that the barmaids wear more clothing than the Alouettes cheerleaders.
McQueen said he's also concerned about the large open widows in the bar allowing people who pass by to see the so-called sexually suggestive dancing taking place.
