City councillors in Bathurst, N.B. have amended a controversial bylaw that now bans older teenagers from trick-or-treating on Halloween.
The bylaw also sets a later curfew for anyone in disguise.
The new bylaw forbids anyone older than 16 from trick-or-treating, and it sets a curfew at 8 p.m. — changing a bylaw that had a 7 p.m. curfew and banned teens over 14 from collecting candy door-to-door.
Under the changes, teens over 16 found roaming the streets for treats or anyone dressed in public in a “facial disguise” after curfew can be fined up to $200.
