    TERREBONNE – The Group Calypso Valcartier had announced its colors Wednesday, claiming that it maintained the prohibition for women to walk topless in its facilities in Quebec and Ottawa.

    The Combination of the water parks of Québec (RPAQ) has confirmed in its turn, this Friday, “the obligation to wear a modest swimsuit” in its parks members.

    The RPAQ has had to take a position after a woman had filed a complaint with the Court of human rights case against the City of Cornwall, Ontario, because the city forbids women to walk around topless on the premises of public swimming pools.

    By press release, the RPAQ has indicated that it takes the ball to the leap and, like the Group Calypso Valcartier, which is also one of its members, means that women are required to wear a swimsuit covering the top (bust) and the lower part of the body”.

    According to the RPAQ, this decision is “in accordance with adopted and applied by its members”, who receive a total of about 1.7 million visitors each year.
