How to keep trick-or-treaters safe this Halloween


Scary monsters and brave superheroes will be walking the streets in a few days, on the day of year most children have been patiently waiting for for months -- Halloween.

The annual trick-or-treat affair sends youngsters out into the neighbourhoods dressed in colourful and creative costumes, some of which have taken weeks to create.

Kids will be going door-to-door in hopes of stacking their bags full of candy, chocolate bars and other sugary goodies.

Halloween is often a busy night for parents, some of whom duck out of work early for the fright night.

Some will rush home early to finish off any last-minute decorations on their lawns and get into their costumes.

Here are some Halloween safety tips from the Canada Safety Council:

- Children should be accompanied by an adult

- Costumes should have reflective material

- Makeup is preferred to masks for better visibility

- Trick-or-treaters should stay in familiar neighbourhoods

- Watch for moving vehicles when crossing streets

- Inspect all candy
