My Take: By Michael Boriero

By Michael Boriero

I can tell you that I don’t understand why the Quebec government is allowing Halloween to go on this year. I can tell you that it makes no sense, considering the event was postponed due to rain last October.
But what I can’t tell you is how every child feels eight months into the pandemic. I don’t have children. And I can’t begin to understand how difficult it must be for parents to make this decision.
Would I, as a child, have so easily sat back and accepted defeat; another cancelled event in what has been a miserable year for so many people. The answer is probably not. I would likely force my parents to take me trick-or-treating.
There’s no telling how many people will venture door-to-door on Saturday, or provide treats, but for those who do, as always, mask up.
