Beth Gignac explains new rules

As the City of Calgary Manager of Arts and Culture, Beth Gignac explained the new rules for busking. Buskers were generally happy with the direction of changes she announced, but some weren’t thrilled when she made clear that amplification was out.

On an unrelated note, in March of 2008 Beth Gignac ran for the Alberta Liberal Party in the riding of Calgary West.

This is one of the pictures I took of a gathering of buskers and city representitives, to discuss new rules for buskers in Calgary. It was held at Olympic Plaza in downtown Calgary to let people know that buskers can now legally perform in far more places, and without requiring a permit or payment of fees. There was a mix of announcements, discussion, and performance. More information is available on Facebook in the group called "The Calgary Buskers/Street Performers Community".
