Did You Know?

I've been wondering how many old laws are still on the books in Canada, but are no longer enforced. Here's a few of the more absurd sort:
  • "You may not park a car in such a way that it is blocking your own driveway."

  • "When raining, a person may not water his/her lawn."
  • "If you are released from prison, it is required that you are given a handgun with bullets and a horse, so you can ride out of town."
  • "It’s illegal to climb trees on city property in Oshawa, Ontario"
  • "The Queen Elizabeth Hotel must feed your horse freely when you rent a room." 

    They get pretty weird.

    More here, here and here.

    Some of the best:

  •  "Horses are not allowed to stand on Edmonton streets for longer than 20 minutes"
  • "In Fort Qu' Appelle, Saskatchewan all teenagers walking down the main street must have their shoes tied."

    I would keep that rule about a handgun with bullets and a horse. Who knows when one of us might need it?
