No Candy Tossing in DC

Some parents in Dawson Creek want a stop to candy being tossed at children during parades because of safety concerns.
Cities such as Kamloops, Prince George and Fort St. John began enforcing a no-toss rule a few years ago.
Fort St. John Coun. Larry Evans, who is also marshal for the city’s parades, says kids would burst from the sidewalks towards moving vehicles to get the candy, sometimes moving too fast for parents to grab them.
He says the drivers of the floats would lose sight of the children when they ran into the parade and that was too dangerous.
Fort St. John hasn’t banned floats from flinging candy at crowds, but asks participants to hand out treats to kids instead.
Stefanie Oestreich, office manager for Dawson Creek’s Chamber of Commerce, which organizes the annual Fall Fair parade, says there are no plans to ban candy tossing and that parents and float participants should act responsibly to keep children safe.
