Its just not necessary to ban open fires.
102Charity Gilmore
Might as well ban bbq smoke, gas fumes. etc. if this is all about public health and safety. All this is is another cash grab for the city. Bring back the firepits...totally ridiculous bylaw.

N2C 1X9 What a bloody joke. What's next a paid permit for BBQ's or indoor wood burning fireplaces? Email your councillors people, I did several times. This is nothing more than a money grab. They should be ashamed of themselves.Leave us alone.Leave it the

Seriously?!? There is just so many things wrong with this ban... but most importantly is that city council passed this bylaw because of 59 people... supposedly representing th 200,000+ population!
107Marjorie Walker
N2C 1X9 I am tired of being bylawed to death. Why are all the people that want fires being penalized because there are a handful of complainers
108Christie Bielaskie
Is this just Kitchener or Waterloo too? I'm for the old bylaw either way love our family back yard fires! N2j 1x3
109Justin Filip
I am careful to abide by the "old" bylaws surrounding back yard fire pits and I have never received a single complaint. Also, how does charging $10 per fire help people with health problems due to wood smoke?

110Roxanne Clark
Totally rediculous!! I'm not paying for a permit every time I want to fire up my pit! And only allowed 6 per year?! Come on!!!
N2N 1G8 - there should be no change to the existing bylaw.

113Roxanne Clark
N2A 2R7 - 14 Berwick Pl - I don't agree with this cash grab at all!
114Pat Lackenbauer
Please go back to old bylaws!
115Al Ridley
Stop the cash grab. Let's promote good sense and neighbourly discussions.

N2M 4B8 - Ridiculous, I'm sick of the city and government finding more and more stupid ways to suck money out of us.
117Darryl Verbiski
Please let us keep this. We keep it safe. And the kids love it.
118Kenneth Popp
complete cash grab come on, and to all those who want a ban, you should try a back yard pit a great way to hang out with friends and family. unless you have no friends and to be honest if you are the ones sending the ban to city council the answer is clear
N2H5N5. Please stay out of my yard, city council. You too, racoons.

I once seen the fire department called in to put out a hibachi grill here in kitchener. I think it had to be the biggest waste of resources I have ever seen.20 firepersons and 3 trucks and one very tiny controlled fire that was being closely monitored.

109 Wood St N2G 2H9 so less than 1% of the population emails and that gets passed??? make note of the councillors that pushed this through "representing their constituents" and ensure you DO NOT vote for them again if they are not representing you!
N2M 3B5
142Mark and Nancy McKay
This is ridiculous. When our neighbours have a fire we close our windows or join them. If we have a fire they do the same. We always ask our neighbours to join. We are adults. This is a lovely way to get to see our neighbours and enjoy their company!
143Jamie Daly
A fire is a sacred communal institution. Do we not have bigger fish to fry?

In favour of firepits. I think this could have been dealt with differently. There are going to be a lot of N2N2B2
150Mike Murray
I just spent good money on a proper pit, cooking grate, and in one foul swoop they take away my right to enjoy my outdoor living space. This is totally unjust for a small number of complaints to result in such a hasty and drastic decision is wrong!!!
