Hey ladies - another outraged Ontario mama here! TM, what a crock!
: I would've gotten someone in the eye with some milk.
About the code vs. the law, unfortunately that's where it gets sticky with regard to public places. I'm not sure if the code *is* the law, kwim?
I'd definitely make some calls to make sure you have your ducks in order. I mean, I'm not afraid of the regional police - but I'd hate to see it turn into a cluster!@#$ and someone get in serious trouble.
Definitely call LLL, local media, I'd even try contacting the OPP for advice on the actual law... not that they'll know definitively, but if Seargent 'So & So' tells you were within your rights, that would help.
