Fireworks bylaw under review in Guelph

By Justine Fraser

The City of Guelph is reviewing its fireworks bylaw and is asking those living in the city to fill out a survey that will help with celebrations next year.

The fireworks bylaw hasn’t been reviewed since 2013.

The city wants to see what kind of changes need to be made.

They’re asking, “What do you celebrate? How do you celebrate? And what do fireworks mean to your celebration?”

The current bylaw in Guelph permits fireworks on Victoria Day, Canada Day and Diwali.

The city points out fireworks can have harmful impacts on the environment, damage property and create disruptions to wildlife, pets and those with sensitivities to loud noises.

The survey comes as Canada Day fireworks at Riverside Park were cancelled this year due to financial and volunteer restrictions the Rotary Club of Guelph is experiencing.

People are asked to fill out the survey before it closes on Sunday, June 16.
