Firework displays create havoc for wildlife, pets, individuals living with post-traumatic stress and other mental health issues. An official House of Commons e-petition, if it reaches the required 500 signatures, will ask the government to replace firework displays with light shows.
The petition is open for signatures until July 14, 2023 at 2:43 p.m. MP Laurel Collins (NDP, Victoria) will read the petition into the legislature if it reaches the required 500 signatures; the government will then be required to issue a formal response.
Wildlife, domestic animals, and people are affected by fireworks; it can sound like gunfire, thunder, or explosions, and can be overwhelming. The Fur-Bearers support petition e-4351 and encourage others to participate by signing here.
