Parade safety is in the forefront after the death of a four year old girl in Nova Scotia.
The young victim in Yarmouth, MaCali Cormier, was running beside a float during the Santa Claus Parade when she was run over.
Greg Stephenson, the organizer of this weekend’s Parade of Lights in Thunder Bay, reminds those who plan to watch the parade, to stay safe.
Stephenson notes “something like this wakes everybody up.”
He suggests parents take extra precautions to make sure their children don’t wander onto the road during the parade.
