Topless reporter surprises Canadian mayor
Mayor Walter Gray asked interviewer Lori
Welbourne what she was doing when she told him to hold the microphone, took off her halter neck top and asked about his views on women baring their breasts in public.
Ms Welbourne, host of On the Rocks Talk, began by citing the case of a New York City woman who took off her blouse in a restaurant, only to be told by the owner that her actions were against the law, except on the street.
Mayor Gray said that if a woman in Kelowna did the same thing, someone would probably phone the police thinking it was illegal, although bylaws against women baring their breasts have been repealed.
He said while a woman wouldn't be breaking any laws, just because she can go topless doesn't mean she should because her actions may be distracting to others.
The interview ended with the surprised Mayor declining the offer of a drink with Ms Welbourne.
