Hair stylists at a Montreal salon said they received a call from their bosses to say that a group of customers wanted to sell their salon.
They said they could not comply with the customers demands because they are not registered to sell at the time of sale.
They say they have to sell immediately because the owners are afraid to lose customers.
The owners of the salon, which opened in 2011, say they received calls from several customers asking them to put their salon on the market.
But they refused, saying they had no right to refuse and that they will not lose any of their customers.
One customer, who gave his name only as K., said that the salon’s owners have no right, in the name of free speech, to shut down a business in order to make their point about how they feel about free speech.
He says that they should shut down the business because they do not have a license.
“They are not the ones to decide if they are allowed to sell, but the customer has the right to decide whether or not they want to buy,” K. told CBC News.
In the video, a man and woman who did not want to be identified, were heard saying they would sell the salon and were offering a price of $20,000 for the space.
But the salon owners refused to budge and have said that they do have a valid license to operate and that the customer could keep the money if they decide to sell.
The owner of the hair salon, who does not want his name used, said he will not allow the salon to go out of business.
“This is a matter of free and fair speech,” he said.
“I have the right of free expression.
I am not going to go against the people who are here today to say they want this to go away.”
The owner has not yet received a response from CBC News to a request for comment from CBC Montreal.
