I’ve been giving you bits of wacky laws around this great country, Canada. Judging by the comments I’ve received, they seem to give you a few chuckles. So to this end, I’ve found a link to Reader’s Digest, where they have a list of 13 strange laws in Canada.
Just to whet your appetite, here’s the first one:
It’s Illegal To Whistle in Petrolia, Ont. A Petrolia city rep says this unusual law simply aims to limit excessive noise between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m., but according to Article 3, 772.3.6 on the town’s website, “Yelling, shouting, hooting, whistling or singing is prohibited at all times.” Keep your enthusiasm to yourself, folks.
