The Anti-White Hypocrisy Of "Tolerance" Shows Itself In Vancouver

A few weeks ago, Kyle Banta was eager to pick up his bagpipes and go busking again in central Vancouver.
For two straight summers, the 22-year-old has been playing on city sidewalks, earning spending money, trying out his own compositions and winning approval from members of the public charmed by the pipe sounds. Some would ask when he would be back. At times, he would make $100 a day.
So Mr. Banta says he was surprised to see on the city website that bagpipe busking was to be banned by Vancouver’s engineering department due to noise concerns – part of a ban that also covered percussion instruments.
“I was quite disappointed because my favorite thing is to play pipes,” said Mr. Banta, describing a decision implemented in a “sleek, quiet way.” He said calls to the engineering department seeking clarification were not returned.
But the unusually specific ban, which hit a few bagpiping buskers in Vancouver, has run into opposition from one of the city’s top Scots.

The engineering department wants to ban the bagpipes?

How curious?

I suppose their plans will all be built with silence in mind, and one would hear a pin drop during construction.
Sound-proof - just like their offices.

Some people just have more right to an existence than others - that's what they seem to think.

I could understand if they curtailed the busking by certain hours, but a ban like this is obviously treading on the rights of others to make a living, and on the free enjoyment of music.

Just to clarify that the piper in question here is an award-winning musician.
