Stupid Canadian Laws

Fort Qu'Appelle, Quebec: This is one of the more unbelievable laws I came across. Did you know that in Fort Qu'Appelle Quebec it is illegal for a teen to walk downtown main street with his shoes untied? Its true. Who comes up with these laws? 

Anywhere In Canada: Get this, it is illegal anywhere in Canada to pay for a 26 cent item in all pennies. The limit is 25 cents. If you are paying for your item in nickels, then its illegal to pay for it in nickels if its over $5. Its also illegal to pay for something over $10 dollars in all dimes. Wild! 

Canada's Radio Stations: Did you know that Canadian law states that every 5th song on the radio must be by a Canadian born citizen? Well believe it or not it is true! 

"Very Old" Alberta Law: In Alberta back in the day, it was the law when a prisoner was released from jail that he would be given a gun and horse to ride out of town or city. 

Ontario Provincial Law: Through out Ontario the average speed limit is 80 km/h for cars, BUT bicyclists have the right of way. 

Anywhere In Canada: No one in Canada is allowed by Canadian law to watch or listen to encrypted broadcast which is not licensed by the Canadian Government. This basically means that its illegal to use US satellite systems like "Direct TV". 

New Brunswick: I don't know how true this one is but supposedly its illegal to buy cigarettes for minors (Under 19), but you can supply them with cigarettes as long as its not in public places. I know here where I live in Alberta, its illegal period to give cigarettes to children and teens. 

London, Ontario: Here's a law I found that kind of surprised me. In London, Ontario it is against thecity by-law to allow your grass in your front yard to grow any taller then 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.

Those are weird but I bet without even checking Unites States has the weirdest laws...we have people get upset over something everyday and then it's let's make a law! Our laws have become so confusing.
You have me curious...I think I am going to see if I can find some strange ones.
