Uptown Shopkeepers On Busker Bust

It's been a bad week for buskers in Saint John. A pair of out of town artists claim they were told by police to stop making their chalk art on the sidewalk... and later in the week, police told a drummer to stop playing because of noise complaints. That same day a man in a gorilla suit was spoken to after reports came in that he was frightening tourists. CBC news reporter Sarah Trainor stopped by some uptown shops yesterday to get reaction to the busker bust.
