A Canadian town is receiving a lot of heat for its new laws that ban anyone over the age of 16 from trick-or-treating and impose an 8pm curfew for those who can. Anyone caught violating these rules could face up to a $200 fine, which for a 17 year old basically amounts to capital punishment. Even more shocking is that these new laws are a modified version of the original law that capped the trick-or-treating age at 14 and had a 7pm curfew. (WIXX)
Canadians always brag about how great Canada is because they have universal healthcare, sane gun laws, and a leader who looks more like a Disney prince than a giant pumpkin spice latte. But now we know that all those things come with a steep price, giving up your right to trick-or-treat. So, screw you Canada! I'd rather get shot by a crazy person and then go into severe debt trying to pay off my medical bills than give up my right to trick-or-treat at any age. Why? Because my Irish ancestors didn’t get on rickety little ships so I could eat salads and run marathons, they did it so my 17-year-old self could go up to any door in America on October 31st and get free candy. USA! USA! USA!
What do you think of this? Should towns put restrictions on trick-or-treating? Does Canada suck?
