Hundreds of Canadian women participate in topless march to support three sisters arrested for riding bikes shirtless BY David Harding NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Sunday, August 2, 2015, 12:27 PM Hannah Yoon/AP Alysha Brilla and her two sisters were recently cycling topless when a police officer told them to cover up. Ontario women have had the right to go topless in public since 1996. Hundreds of women in Canada took part in a topless march to support three sisters allegedly stopped by police for cycling without shirts. Protestors carried signs including "They are boobs not bombs, chill out" and "Nudity isn't sexual," reports the BBC. The "Bare With Us" march took place in Waterloo, Ontario, after the sisters — Tameera, Nadia and Alysha Mohamed — were stopped by police in a neighboring town. They claimed they took their shirts off because it was a hot day. Hannah Yoon/AP Katie Gosen holds up a sign at the ‘Bare With Us’ rally at the Waterloo Town Square in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, on Aug. 1. One of the sisters is a well-known Canadian singer, who has the stage name of Alysha Brilla. "I had no idea how polarizing the issue would be," she told CBC News. "I thought people wouldn't be so disturbed by the female breast." It is legal for women to be topless in Ontario following a court ruling almost 20 years ago.
