Crazy Laws in Canada

1. It’s Forbidden to Pay in Coins

This is the first on the list of funny laws in Canada, as strange as this law is, it is true. Today in Canada, many Canadians usually get rid of these coins by using it to pay for bubble gums or chocolate at the nearest fuel station. The law stated that you could only use 25 Loonies and five coins of 25 cents each. So while in Canada, do not make a mistake if paying C$30 for breakfast in a restaurant using loonies (Canadian coins) because you may end up getting arrested.

2. Don’t Drag a Dead Horse Down the Street

As unserious as this may sound, it is as serious as a heart attack! But it seems that this?. law is limited to Toronto. What even made this law top the list of the funny laws in Canada is that it is only made illegal on Sundays, of which, if it pleases you to do it (drag a dead horse) on a Monday, you are very free to do so.

3. Don’t Remove Bandage in Public

Of all the weird laws in Canada, this is the funniest, Like, who does that? But take our words for it “it is very true”! There are no specific reasons for this, but no matter what you do, do not get that bandage off either on a walkway, subway, or any other public area.

4. Don’t Paint your House in Purple Color

No matter what you do, stay away from Purple color; do not paint your building, doors, garage, or any other place with Purple, you might get arrested by just doing that. But from the look of things, it seems that this law is limited to only Kanata neighborhood of Ottawa, but even that, this is as crazy as it sounds.
