city rescinds rule requiring tops at public pools

City makes it official: Tops no longer mandatory for girls at pools

The rule spared accusations of sexism in 2015, after an eight-year-old girl was ordered to put on a top or leave the pool at Exhibition Park.

City officials eventually agreed to review the rule.

That review is now complete, and the city no longer mandates tops for girls and women using its pools.
