Enough with the back­yard fire­works

RE: Why we should ban back­yard fire­works — Part 2 (May 24)

Here in Cale­do­nia where I live, it is not un­com­mon for fire­works to be heard just about ev­ery week­end dur­ing the sum­mer.

My last dog (Mol­son, RIP) would cower in the dark­est, fur­thest cor­ner of our base­ment un­der what­ever he could find to hide un­der to get away from the drone of those pops and screams of the fire­works.

I’ve of­ten been awak­ened by this reg­u­lar an­noy­ance (let’s just say I don’t need to be up late.)

I hon­estly get the town-sanc­tioned dis­plays, in fact, en­joy them, but I con­cur: ban the rest. Suzanne Kucheran, Cale­do­nia
