I think it's against human rights, it's a pretty communist choice. The fact that home owners go out and pay to buy a house to enjoy it, and some bigwig is saying that we can't enjoy our backyard in the way we choose to? It's a sad day.

It's absolutely asinine for these politicians to tell me, a taxpayer and one who votes in Municipal elections what I can and can't do on my property. We are way over regulated as it is. Perhaps we should rename this "THE REPUBLIC of WATERLOO".

This obviously isn't a safety issue, since they will allow folks to have a fire if they pay $$ to do so. Why only 6 fires? Are they trying to hide their money making agenda by thinly disguising this as a safety issue? I call shenanigans!

Our fires bring our family closer together. They give us time to enjoy each others company. Save our families.

Backyard campfires are a marvelous part of our time with family and friends. It would be unfortunate to lose out on that privilege due to irresponsibility of a few. Let's create bylaws that encourage/allow for responsible behaviour to continue. N2K 1P2.

Worked too hard, taxed too much. Who has the time or money to rent cottages. Our back yard fire is one way for our family and friends to come together and forget about the rat race.

You shouldn't have to pay for fires.
Can't the government stay out of anything?

My family is closer because of our bonfires.

I like fires.

this is totally ridiculous - if people supervised their fires properly we wouldn't be doing this.

this is a money grabber

Adults should have the options to take some responsibility and have fires in their backyards if they want to.

N2G 1S3--Smoke from backyard fire pits are not more harmful than exhaust from cars, or people smoking cigarettes as you walk past them on the sidewalks. City-wide ban is unnecessary, city should deal with individual issues as they arise.

Personally, I think it is a tax grab. It gives neighbours an opportunity to complain about something. Too many bylaws to begin with
2439Sarah Donaldson
backyard fires in the evening are a safe way to create a community atmosphere, getting neighbours out of doors to socialize and enjoy each other's company. Isn't that what a community is all about?

I believe there is nothing wrong with people having a nice fire. To relax by. There was a time we could aford to go camping. But now its to costly. And not as much time for that. So people need to stop complianing and enjoy the bit of relaxing time we have

As a resident of Kitchener and a tax payer I feel it is unjust to tell us that we cannot enjoy our outdoor space.I alrady pay a lot to have my space and to have to pay more to use it's unaceptable! I have already paid to use my yard!

born and raised here, too many bylaws. Why can't we enjoy our backyard space, especially when we have our pits contained and far away from any buildings, it is a treat to have a large lot, we would like to enjoy it!

Town council wants to treat residents like idiots. Thanks, but I don't need the local government to act like "big government" and hold my hand through my life decisions and what I can and cannot do on my own property.
