Mask-maker's home business hits a snag after visit from Victoria bylaw officer
Victoria resident Fatima Lichty started selling her own homemade masks from a table in the driveway at her daughter's Victoria home and business was good, until there was a visit from Victoria Bylaw Services along with a potential fine of $275.
"I would never intentionally break the law but I just can't understand it," said Lichty to host Kathryn Marlow on CBC's All Points West.
Lichty had dusted off her sewing machine and made some masks for her family members, including her son-in-law who is immunocompromised. She started 'Mama's Masks' after her designs caught on with his coworkers.

This is how the current Canadian Government kills entrepreneurship!
More and more the iron hands are seen on everything creative!
Currently the huge mask imports can't let small business start their own!
CORP GESTAPO INDEED!
Only mass-production chipped from CHINA gets to flourish because the middleman gets a cut!
She needed a business license to sell her goods, just as every other vendor does. How does that kill entrepreneurship?
Does a simple lemonade stand need a licence in her region!?
If they do the same volume of business, then yes, a license is required.
It's about TAXING to fatten the government's pockets so that they can manipulate the little citizens!
What income did this native woman make with 100 masks sawn a home, she only sold 40 masks in two week span and gave away most of them to family members.
PS What the article does say!
NATIVE aren't supposed to be exposed to taxation!
