Break the law in Ontario, and you might be fined or imprisoned, but some of the province’s most peculiar laws may just leave you scratching your head: * In early southern Ontario, stealing a soldier’s socks was punishable by death * If you let your lawn grow over 3.8 centimetres high in London, city workers will mow it and leave you with the bill * It’s illegal in Guelph to water your lawn during a rainstorm or to allow sprinkler water to run off your lawn and onto the street in front of your home * In 1802, released convicts had only eight days to hightail it out of Ontario, under the threat of death * Up until the early 1970s, licensees of taverns and beer halls were required to provide separate drinking rooms for ”ladies and escorts” * Plus more strange and surprising laws from Canada’s most populous province.
