I was wondering if there were any sites about old laws that are still in effect. You know, the ones that have never been taken off the books. I heard a rumour that there is a law in Calgary that if you get banned from the town you have to be given a bag of gold and a horse! I don't know if this is true but I'd like a website with more information. Thanks.

yeah :D lets see now doing the calculations (depending on how much gold ) If one were to be kicked out of Calgary everyday for ten years they would have alot of bags of gold and alot of horses :D anyway I am familiar with the story being as ; a horse, buggy , and one week supply of food and ammo .

The only thing I find that is close is this.If you are released from prison, it is required that you are given a handgun with bullets and a horse, so you can ride out of town.

lol I think once you are kicked out you are out permanently.

So there's no one resource for funny little laws like that? Too bad.

i know one Law that is still active, If you steal a horse, you get the noose. Hanging from a tree. In Canada. One of our friends went up on a charge like that not too long ago. And that law came up no lawyer wanted to represent the guy. It stumped the judge. Finally they charged Him for, theft under 5,000 dollars. lol
