Brock University students attending this year’s campus Halloween party are being encouraged to check a website to make sure their costumes are not “prohibited.”

 

According to a “costume protocol” developed by the student union at the St. Catharines, Ont., university, traditional or religious headdresses, such as feathered bonnets and turbans, are off-limits. So, too, are thobes — ankle-length robes worn by Arab men; makeup depicting Japanese geishas; outfits containing the Confederate flag; and costumes that depict Caitlyn Jenner, the transgender celebrity.

Bathurst Mayor Paolo Fongemie says he was "surprised" when he learned that his city has a long-standing bylaw on the books that forbids any trick-or-treating after 7 p.m. and it prohibits older teens from dressing up for Halloween.

 

The northern city's bylaw was drafted in 2005, and in the 10 Halloweens that have passed since, Fongemie said he believes there have been no fines handed out.

Councillors were divided over the bylaw, which dictates only children under 14 can trick-or-treat, and only until 7 p.m.

 

"Door to door soliciting (trick or treating) shall not take place after 19:00 hrs. Facial disguises will not be permitted in public after 19:00 hrs," it reads.

"No person(s) over the age of 14 yrs. shall take part in door to door soliciting (trick or treating) in the City of Bathurst."

That's a shame, in some ways.  I went to a Hallowee'n party a number of years ago where a mixed couple went in 1920's Japanese, except she was wearing the tails, and he was wearing the Kimono.  

 

 

As for Bathurst - geez, what a bunch of old grumps.  No TnT after 1900? And not over 14?  I can see being a little put out if a 20year old 6 foot TnT with a DEEP voice bangs on your door at midnight, but if, for one night, a 15, 16 year old wants to pretend that they're a kid again, what's the harm?


Say, what's that mountain goat doing up here in the mist?

The most literal interpretation of nanny state. Asking a female employee-of a public institution to change your diaper.

he presented himself to female staff at different campuses — in several cases asking them to change his soiled diapers. Eventually he came to Roth complaining of discrimination.

"He's unfortunately obsessed with the fecal matter," said Roth.
