COLLINGWOOD, Ont. — It seems this gardener may have been trying to keep cool while working outside, but at least one neighbour didn’t appreciate the view.

Provincial police went to a Collingwood, Ont.,-area home Thursday afternoon after being called about a man wearing “an ill-fitting thong” while out in his garden.

The problem was, police said, everything was not where it was supposed to be.


However, Const. Mark Kinney said police determined there was no intent to commit indecent exposure.

The man, described as being in his 50s, was not charged but rather urged to go inside and select “more suitable clothing.”
