Ontario bar holding dwarf-tossing contest ... again Add to ...

There was outrage in the past when a dwarf tossing event was held in Windsor, Ont., and it’s happening again.

The Leopard’s Lounge and Broil strip club is sponsoring a contest to see who can toss a dwarf the furthest on Saturday night.

Jennie Berkeley called her city councillor after seeing a sign promoting the event. She says she can’t believe something like this is allowed in this day and age.

Councillor Ron Jones says there’s no law on the books, provincial or municipal, preventing it.

A Windsor member of the Ontario legislature tried in 2003 to get dwarf tossing banned in the province.

Sandra Pupatello’s failed Dwarf Tossing Ban Act proposed a fine of up to $5,000 for organizing or participating in a dwarf tossing event.
