A Canadian journalist stripped to the waist during an interview with her local mayor as she asked him about women being allowed to go topless.

Lori Welbourne, who hosts radio show On The Rocks and writes a column for the Province newspaper, was talking to Walter Gray, mayor of Kelowna.

"What if I went walking down the street topless?" she asked in the recorded interview.

Before Gray could answer her question, Welbourne handed him her microphone and undid the strap on her dress, exposing her breasts.

"What are you doing?" he asked. She simply replied: "It's really hot in here."

Gray explained that public toplessness is not illegal anywhere in Canada unless it's deemed to be indecent.

"So I can go topless here in Kelowna?" Welbourne asked.

"Well, evidently," Gray said. "I'm not suggesting you should do that but I don't think you’d be committing any crime or breaking any bylaw."

"What would be inappropriate about a women being topless?" a shirtless Welbourne asked Gray.

"The difference probably is that a woman's chest causes a distraction," he responded.
