UNDER ARREST: CANADIAN LAWS YOU WON'T BELIEVE., Tarantino, Bob.  Illustrations by Julia Bell.
6 Tarantino, Bob. Illustrations by Julia Bell. UNDER ARREST: CANADIAN LAWS YOU WON'T BELIEVE.
Dundurn, Toronto, 2007, first edition. 
221 pp, 9" H, soft cover. ISBN 9781550027031 "Did you know that Canada's Criminal Code still has provisions outlawing the practice of witchcraft and 'crafty sciences'? Did you know that blasphemy is a crime in Canada? And did you know that putting a picture of a red poppy on your website could get you in trouble with the Royal Canadian Legion? Lawyer and author Bob Tarantino takes the reader on an entertaining and informative romp through Canada's legal labyrinths in a book that spotlights the country's past and present quirky, strange, but true laws and legal history. (He) examines odd statutes and arcane jurisprudence across the whole spectrum of Canadian endeavour from war and religion to sex and culture to politics and business. Frequently, he demonstrates the parallels between yesterday's prohibitions and today's trends such as the edict against duelling and the legalities of twenty-first-century hockey slugfests, or the confiscation of so-called 'crime comics' in the 1950s and the controversy surrounding violence in contemporary video games." Inside - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - clean and bright. Fine
