Cornwall Ontario – I normally am for anything that helps the economy of this community, but a recent move to support fireworks sales in Cornwall just makes no sense?
One of the biggest runaway areas of our budget in Cornwall are our Fire Services. We have one of the highest rates of fires in Ontario. Lower income, education, wannabee thug life freaks, smokers, and the East End’s density of older real estate simply are a recipe for disaster. Honestly there are too many people wandering our streets I wouldn’t trust with cutlery, nevermind explosives.
Each fire costs the city far more than the value economically of allowing Skeeter the ability to wander down to his local store and purchase items that make big booms!
You simply can’t legislate stupid. Accidents can even happen with professionals using fireworks.
Let’s keep them to Canada Day and Holiday events and keep them legally out of the hands of some of our more stalwart citizens.
And honestly, you shouldn’t need a consultant or report from management to figure that out.
