  • Bare-breasted sisters’ protest raises important issues: Editorial | Toronto Star

    When Alysha Brilla, Nadia Mohamed and Tameera Mohamed were stopped by a police officer and told to put their shirts on after cycling topless last week in Kitchener, the three sisters could not have known their protest against the officer’s order would go viral. After all, it’s been legal for women to bare their breasts in Ontario since former University of Guelph student Gwen Jacob finally won her legal battle for the right to appear topless in public back in 1996. While seeing bare female breasts may make some uncomfortable, and others may feel the sisters were pulling a stunt rather than asserting their rights, the principles established in the Jacob case two decades ago remain valid. Consider the lifeguard in Guelph who told an eight-year-old girl (we’re not making this up) to put on her top at a wading pool in June.

  • Giant, hungry snails are eating the stucco off houses in Florida

    Florida plant detectives are on the trail of a slippery foe, an invasive African land snail that is wily, potentially infectious, and can grow as big as a tennis shoe. In the four years since Giant African Snails were discovered in Miami, they have slowly but surely spread to new territory, alarming residents in the southern suburbs and the neighboring county of Broward. Since 2011, Florida has spent $10.8 million on the Giant African Snail eradication program, according to state agriculture department spokesman Mark Fagan. "The fact is they're a human- and animal-health threat, and they're a threat to Florida's agriculture," said Fagan.
