If you had to peg the Great White North with one prevailing personality trait, it’d have to be politeness. Isn’t that the old joke? You can bump into a Canadian person and they’ll apologize to you for not watching where you were going. Sure, on an international level, the country has a reputation for subdued politeness, but inside Canada’s border are a selection of people that run the gamut from intrepid to silly, foolish to brilliant (they invented Trivial Pursuit, you know). As a result, some of the legislation in the country can get a little … strange. Here are some of the most antiquated rules and ludicrous laws and still on the books up there.

Which is a shame, because they’re missing out on some good illegal content.
