Yesterday for at least 9 hours there were fireworks going off all around my neighbourhood. Full size explosions on top of houses and on the street. The barrage of gun and bomb sounds made me want to scream. The toxic smoke enveloped everything. How the fuck can this be legal? During BCs worst fires, drought and record setting poor air quality they set off a 'festival' of fireworks. Vancouver is beyond ubsurd. The SHAMEFUL demise of housing sold off as investment and pollution in this 'green' city has become intolerable. We can not participate in the blind leading the blind anymore. Please be a good human and take responsibility for your environment. No more fireworks- no more foreign investment- no more payola politicians. Let's reduce the fuckery. Thank you.
