Description

If you can imagine it, somewhere there's probably a law against it. Laugh out loud over some of Canada's strangest laws -- but not too loudly, or you might get a ticket: * Until 2002 in BC, you couldn't stand up while having a drink in a restaurant * In Halifax, cabbies are required to wear socks * You're not allowed to dogsled on the sidewalks in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario * In Ponoka, Alberta, don’t build a mud hut or a house with a straw roof * Don't let your Canadian flag snap in the wind in Collingwood, Ontario * Coloured margarine is illegal in Quebec * Don't leave a trail of nails, tacks or glass behind you when you walk down the streets of Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan * Clear sodas are not allowed to contain caffeine in Canada. * Plus more outdated, outmoded or just plain outlandish laws from throughout Canada.
