There are no immediate plans to ban flying lanterns in New Brunswick.

A Spokesperson for the Department of Public Safety Sheila Lagace says they are reviewing rules in light of developments in other jurisdictions.

This week,  the lanterns that use heat from a small flame to keep them afloat, were banned in Prince Edward Island.  Fines of up to $1000 could be handed out if you are caught using one.

The lanterns are also prohibited in Nova Scotia.
