Alysha Birlla, the JUNO Award nominee who held a rally in Waterloo, Ontario, supporting a woman’s rights to go topless in public joins the show to relate what happened at the rally yesterday. Last Friday, Brilla and her twin sisters decided the temperature in Kitchener-Waterloo, was too hot to bear and decided they would all three go for a topless bicycle ride. A female police officer saw them and didn’t challenge the situation. But another officer, male, stopped them and told Alysha and her sisters they would have to wear tops.
Why did the tale of these topless sisters become a national and polarizing news story?
