Bathurst, New Brunswick passed a bylaw in 2005 that prohibits children aged 14 and older from trick or treating. Oh, but that’s not all! It is also against the law for ANYONE to trick or treat after 7 pm!
Bathurst’s mayor, Paolo Fongemie finds this bylaw “surprising” but states that in the 11 years since it has been in effect ZERO fines have been handed out. Whew..that’s a relief. More here.
Do you agree with this bylaw or do you find it as outlandish as I do?!?
