172Barb W.

N2H 1E1

177jordan scott
all smoke stinks.
178T. Sullivan
Forest Hill No one in our family smokes. What are the longterm health effects of regularly having to breathe in the smoke from these firepits that neighbours keep having?

N2V3V8 a permit system like the one in Cambridge for community events might work.

190Sue Z.

Maybe Public Health can say if it's only 22,000 people in Kitchener with asthma alone.
194Ayssa W.
N2M 3N9 Why are these fires allowed so close to houses? Waterloo banned them and they had the 10 m setback
