Trapeze School Repeatedly Refused License

Trapeze School Repeatedly Refused License

A couple in St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada have been trying to open a trapeze school in the city, but have been refused a license by City Council four times.

However, Josh and Daniella Mundon, who run an acrobatics program in Mount Pearl, are not giving up. "We want to be Atlantic Canada's premier aerial arts and acrobatic training facility," Josh said Tuesday.

No school of this type exists east of Quebec.

Councillor Debbie Hanlon explained the refusal based on complaints. Two people have expressed concerns, one about privacy, the other about traffic and noise originating from the school.

The Mundons know of many potential students, and Hanlon says she has received several letters of support for the school.

The councillor believes that the City may decide to grant them a license at a meeting on Monday.
