    Canadian lawmakers weren’t exactly in the Halloween spirit when they approved a new bill on Wednesday. The legislation makes it illegal to wear masks during riots and protests. Guilty parties could face up to 10 years in prison.
    Bill C-309 passed with a vote of 153 to 126 in the Canadian Parliament. It will now move on to the Senate.
    If it becomes law, mask-wearers at riots face up to 10 years in jail. Those busted wearing a disguise at an unlawful protest could be sentenced to up to five years in the big house.
    The sanctions would not apply to those taking part in peaceful demonstrations or protests.
