Fireworks are great fun. We all enjoy guessing the colours of the rockets before they ignite in the sky, hearing the explosions echo off nearby buildings, or writing our names in light with hand sparklers.

But there is an environmental price to pay. Fireworks cause extensive air pollution in a short amount of time, leaving metal particles, dangerous toxins, harmful chemicals and smoke in the air for days. Some of the toxins never fully decompose or disintegrate, but rather hang around in the environment, poisoning all they come into contact with.

I ask you, why is Gatineau investing so much time and money into reducing pollution by implementing a recycling, composting and reduced waste program only to allow these fireworks to void all the work we do.

Perhaps the best way to tackle the pollution caused by fireworks is not to have them at all. Alternatively, laser light shows can just as easily wow a crowd without the negative environmental side effects associated with fireworks. I ask that you help me end this horrible “tradition” by signing the petition. Lets save our planet, our wildlife and ourselves.
