Calgary’s annual No Pants C-Train ride will not be happening this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Organized by Improv Everywhere, the popular event started in New York City and sees pants-less individuals board subway cars in the middle of winter. It’s all meant to be a good-spirited prank.
But safety concerns surrounding COVID-19 forced organizers to cancel the 2021 rendition.
