Quiz: Are These Topless Women Doing Something Illegal?

NSFW warning: nips ahead.

Cops in Canada seem to be having a hard time deciding whether or not it's legal for women to go topless.

Three sisters in Kitchener, Ontario said they were recently told to put shirts on by a cop during a shirtless bike ride.

Over in Kelowna, B.C. a woman said an RCMP officer told her to cover up at a beach.

What gives?

Bare breasts are not specifically listed as indecent in Canada's criminal code and court cases in Ontario, Saskatchewan, and B.C. have determined there's nothing offensive about a female nip or two.

But, since cops seem to be having such trouble with it, we've made a handy quiz to test your topless knowledge.

Assuming these women are in Ontario, B.C. or Saskatchewan...
