How do you fight back against annoying neighborhood kids, running their ATVs all the time so you can’t sleep? Why, take of your shirt of course. Uhh, what? Yeah, I know. Oh Canada.
The 56-year-old says she is sick and tired of her neighbours’ five-year-old grandson driving a loud all-terrain vehicle for hours on her quiet street in Seeley’s Bay, near Kingston. So she found a solution under her shirt.
De Florio has discovered that if she goes out topless, the boy’s horrified grandparents rush the child into the house.
And she said she will continue to go topless every time the child rides the ATV.
Why don’t the neighbors just call the cops her on for indecent exposure?
She is not breaking the law, because in Canada women are allowed to be topless.
“There is not a criminal charge for that … not since 1996,” said Toronto Police Const. Isabelle Cotton.
WHOA, WHAT? Being topless is legal in Canada? My opinion of that country just shot up 10,000%.Â Though I suppose that since it’s cold there 10 months out of the year, this rule is hardly ever taken advantage of.
And also in this case, the woman is 56, and unless you’re Helen Mirren, you can’t exactly get away with that.
