Weird laws from Canada - Part 2 (always fun to read such laws and wonder about the situation when they were implemented)

The second set of such laws from Canada, but not confirmed whether these are true or not.

11. Now I couldn't find a date for this law but its so off the wall it must be from around the late 1800's or early 1900's. There's a law on the British Columbia books that states if you're a bankrupt drunk who got thrown into jail, the law requires the jailer to bring you a bottle of beer on demand. Nuts!

12. Here's a law I found that kind of surprised me. In London, Ontario it is against the city by-law to allow your grass in your front yard to grow any taller then a inch and a half. If you do, the city will come by and cut it for you then give you a fine for $200. Crazy!

13. Quebec law states that all business signs must be in French. If the owner wants English on the sign then the French print has to be twice as large as the English print.

14. In Ottawa, Ontario you are not allowed to eat ice cream on Bank St on a Sunday! No idea as to why.

15. In Beaconsfield, Canada it's considered an offense to have more than two colours on your house; and you are not allowed to own a log cabin!

16. In Guelph, Ontario, the city is classified as a no pee zone! What about other Canadian cities ?

17. In Toronto, Ontario, it's illegal to drag a dead horse down Younge St on a Sunday!

18. 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!

19. In Cobourg, Ontario if you have a water trough in your front yard, it must be filled by 5:00am! Not sure when was the last time this law was implemented.

20. Through out Ontario the average speed limit is 80 km/h for cars, BUT bicyclists have the right away. Does make sense if you go in for more green methods of travel.
