Located in the Black Creek Parkland, this 10-metre-long man cave was reinforced with wooden supports and fitted out with an electric generator, food and drink containers, as well as a rosary decorated with a Remembrance Day poppy. While the men aren’t being criminally charged, you might want to wait before grabbing your shovel and headlamp and heading to your nearest park to start a little bromance in the underworld. There are, after all, a host of bylaws dictating what you can and cannot do in conservation areas and city parks. But when the Star tried to find out exactly what bylaws these young shovel-wielders broke, we unveiled a deep, dark labyrinth of confusion.
“Really, we only have two things that we worry about: criminal intent and public safety issues,” police spokesperson Const. Victor Kwong told the Star on Monday. Kwong said police were satisfied that neither of these were at play in the man cave. “There’s no crime against digging a hole.”
