Over the past few weeks we have had two very different series running on this blog. Articles by well-known Christian authors suggesting some vacation reading and articles featuring odd laws from around the world.
Today we continue our Odd Laws and this time we are focusing on Canada.
Why are we looking at odd laws? Well really because I personally find them amusing and interesting but my official excuse is that with Christian House Sitters you could end up having wonderful rent-free vacations all over the world so you need to be informed.
You may have thought of moving to St. John’s Newfoundland to raise cows. If you are successful in your quest, remember not to drive your cattle through the streets of the city after 8:00 am. There is nothing to stop you from doing so before that time, however, as long as they are trained to obey traffic lights and stop signs.
In Nova Scotia a person is not allowed to water their grass when it’s raining. Not like someone would do this, but it’s against the law in Nova Scotia!
In Cobourg, Ontario if you have a water trough in your front yard, it must be filled by 5:00am!
In Fort Qu’Appelle Quebec it is illegal for a teen to walk downtown main street with his shoes untied?
In London, Ontario it is against the city by-law to allow your grass in your front yard to grow any taller than an inch and a half. If you do, the city will come by and cut it for you then give you a fine for $200.
Alberta Provincial Laws state that it is illegal to set fire to the wooden leg of a wooden-legged man
In Montreal The Queen Elizabeth Hotel must feed your horse freely when you rent a room.
