To the Editor,
Please forget the fireworks. It’s time for Port Alberni to get on the bandwagon. Just one firecracker can terrify several animals for miles. It changes our eco-system.
Have you ever seen that three-legged deer with the fourth leg dangling? You might be responsible for that. If you don’t care about animals maybe this will interest you: fireworks directly affect people with autism, special needs, epilepsy, PTSD and more.
I have to spend $70 every year on medication for my dog to calm him down after convulsions from fireworks. This money comes from Halloween candy I will not be able to buy.
In these trying times for the planet and its inhabitants please just say no to fireworks.
