Over the weekend police responded to a call at the Country Thunder music festival in Craven, Saskatchewan...because of public nudity. Apparently somebody started dancing naked. RCMP Staff Sgt. Craig Cleary said: “With regards to the public nudity, we definitely support people having fun out here on site...We do realize, sometimes, that people feel inspired. However, if you feel inspired to dance like nobody’s watching, we just ask that you do it while wearing clothing.”RCMP said the reality is that other people at the event are watching.
