BC Is Getting All Pumped For Trick-Or-Treating While Ontario Has FOMO

Halloween is still a thing on the West Coast.
B.C. Trick-Or-Treaters Are Giving Ontarians Major FOMO

Halloween might be different in Ontario this year, but that hasn't stopped B.C. trick-or-treaters from taking to social media to give us all a bad case of FOMO.

Canada's western-most province has managed to keep its case numbers down, avoiding the higher case counts amid the second-wave that has plagued Ontario this month. 

Due to this, B.C. residents have the privilege of going candy hunting this year, and it's hard not to feel a little envious. 

Especially for those in Toronto, Peel, York and Ottawa, who are being told to stay home this Halloween

Currently, B.C has a total of 11,851 cases of COVID-19. Yet, Ontario has clocked in at 65,896.

Currently, B.C is reporting nearly 200 cases a day, while Ontario is reporting around 700. 

B.C.'s top doctor credits the province's lack of outdoor restrictions for keeping case numbers low and controlled.

Due to this, B.C has made trick-or-treating a low-risk activity.

Ontario chose to pull the plug on trick-or-treating in the province's current hotspots.
