Air quality is a concern in this city. It smells like a smokehouse.

Any kind of smoke adversely affects my throat and eyes. People do not realize how far smoke drifts from their property and how it affects others. I rely on having my windows open all year round in my apartment building. Ban all fires.
1954Tammy Warren
Many of these campfires are not about wienies and marshmallows for the kids. Drinking, swearing, keeping neighbours awake at night should not be tolerated.
1955Nelia Grasso
I should not have to close my windows when the weather is nice outside.
1956Rowena Martin
Stanley Park I would like to seek these fires banned.

Most cities in Ontario have already banned these backyard fires, and Kitchener should be the next one.
1962Leida Martin
The house beside mine is for sale and I don't want another firepit near my house when someone buys it.

Stanley Park Those people who like breathing in smoke should go camping. They are polluting the air.

Everyone knows how bad smoking cigarettes is. Wood smoke is worse. People who need to sit around smoky fires should go camping like they used to.

Smoky campfires in city backyards are a terrible example to be setting for young people who will grow up to face more and more dire consequences of our collective pollution. Public health is at risk from the smoke.

Kitchener is growing and campfires should not burning in small city backyards. The smoke is bad for everyone so we need them out of backyards now.
1972Rob Herbert
It should not make any difference if someone lives in an apartment or a house. This smoke is crappy for everyone. Kitchener should ban these fires now.
1973Marlene Herbert
Some people think there's nothing the matter with having smoky fires every night. This is a city and this type of smoke pollution a health hazard.

N2N 3E5 Smoky air is not something this city should be proud of. We should be taking air quality very seriously.
1980Art Lawrence
A very strict permit system might work but no wood fires in backyards should be allowed.
1981joslin fields
please send this to 5 friends!!!!!!!!
1982Chelsie Warren
The smoke seems to be more of a problem all the time. Burning wood in backyards is a air pollution that affects the health of residents in this city. No more wood fires in backyards.

People who like to wreck their health sitting around smoky fires should go camping like people used to do.
1991Marco Ronzo
No matter if you live in a house or apartment, campfire smoke in a city should not make people have to close windows.

the environment is really in bad shape and all this pollution isn't very smart.
1998Karol Anderson
We are already in a part of the country prone to smog from the US and this city allows highly polluting backyard bonfires? These fires should be banned now.
