What kind of stupidity is this? Women are already permitted to appear topless in public.

Well, in this country, at any rate, since R. v. Jacob (1996) 142 DLR(4th) 411 (Ont. C.A.).

With the Ont. and C.A and women being permitted do you mean Canada? If not what country?

Yes, Canada. Women, which includes the Queen and the Duchess of Cambridge, have been free to go topless for the last 16 years.

Better question: would women go topless if they had that right? The county I live in explicitly permits it, and yet I have never seen it happen nor heard of it happening.

Yes, I am sure.

The Ontario case remains a definitive statement of the law in that province, and influential in every other. It has been followed in BC and Saskatchewan, which makes it very likely that courts in every other jurisdiction would respect it as good law.

Now, the moment that a court comes down with a different judgement--or the moment that Parliament amends section 173, then my opinion would necessarily change. But as of this date neither of those things has taken place, so I am sure that women are free to go topless in Canada.
