Fireworks have held a long history of being associated with celebration. However, the use of fireworks should be used responsibly and be strictly regulated.

Residential use of fireworks has had a devastating impact on neighbourhoods across Canada. These impacts are especially felt at home where pet owners see the unnecessary, traumatic reactions of our pets. They feel deeply stressed, hopelessly afraid, and helpless. This also applies to the wildlife in our communities.

In addition, fireworks are a harmful pollutant to the environment, spewing harmful chemicals into the atmosphere, which ultimately ends up in our soil and water.

The fireworks industry is also believed to involve unethical production, including child labour.

Personally, my fur baby would hide, tremble, pant without food and water for hours. It's takes days for her to get back to normality.

We Canadians cannot let this happen for a few minutes of visual pleasure. There are so many better ways of celebrating our heritage! It's time Canada leads the world by fully banning - or at the least HEAVILY regulating - residential fireworks in Canada.

We are one of the most compassionate human beings in the world. How are we watching this happen without any action?
