I am very much in favour of a total fire pit ban. No one should be a prisoner in their own home. I am allegic to smoke ad it can make me very ill.

N2M2B2 We very seldom use our backyard now that our neighbors started having fire pits weeknights and weekends. On summer nights we have to make sure our windows are closed and laundry is not hanging outside. Often had to rewash all my laundry.
59Matt Wilkinson
N2M 1X2 Campfires in backyards should be like cigarettes in restaurants. Most people are smart enough not to smoke. One smoky fire can affect a large area.

Heritage Park Most cities have already banned these fires. Is it a good thing to be last? Campfires in backyards - no.
62M. Bradley
Sunrise Plaza What is more important than health? Burning wood is very polluting. Pollution harms health. Most cities have already dealt with this problem.

N2N 1K3 Campfires in backyards is not what we should be teaching to children. The Record has an article about pollution and the link to cancer.
68R. Wilson
N2A 1B9 Weber St. We need these backyard fires banned to see if the air is still this bad. Way less than 2500 on the other petition http://petitionhosting.com/petitions/firepits

Sunrise Mall area
Houses are smoky with yards this small. Fires don't belong in city backyards.
70Rob Schmidt

71C. Schmidt

80Trevor White
N2J 2J9 Waterloo. I was thinking of Kitchener to be closer to the place that I work but I have friends who complain about the smoke in Kitchener.
81Marianne Schweitzer
Kitchener I can't afford a cottage or a trailer. I shouldn't have to leave my house to get away from campfires burning in other yards in this ciy. Waterloo and Cambridge residents don't have this smoke crap.
82Gary Bakker
Please ban backyard fires totally.
83Gary Schlueter
When we send firefighters into smokey fires they wear masks and air tanks. Lets keep our city pollution free. Ban outdoor fires!!
84Joan Schlueter
It is a fact that smoke from any fire is hazardous to our health. Please ban backyard fires completely
85Ingrid Sienerth
Forest Heights It's disgusting that people still have to put up with smoky fire stench Oct. 6, Oct. 7 and Oct. 8 in the West Acres Crescent/ Blackwell Drive area. I was driving to a friends house each evening.

Fun for a few while others suffer the poor health consequences. Doesn't make sense!
89Diane Daudlin
For me it is a health concern! Whenever someone starts up an open fire in our neighbourhood of forest heights the windows need to be closed.
90Susan Koswan
I support a backyard fire ban in the City of Kitchener. Our homes are too close to provide adequate ventilation, the smoke contributes to poor air quality.
91michelle benninger
Kitchener residents deserve the same protection from airborne contaminants as the residents in Waterloo and Cambridge. It amazes our whole family that the fun and enjoyment of a backyard fire can trump the health of others in the community.
92Ashley W.
I am 12 years old. My parents and teachers teach me to recycle, that we should save energy, and how bad air pollution is for people.

Open fires are too high a risk in residential communities. We need to put public health and safety first.
98D.S.trussler
Forest Heights had to go into house & shut doors&windows many times this past summer due to wood burning fire pits beside & behind my property,really sucks i can`t sit out in my own backyard on a nice summer evening
99mel linington
No one should have to breathe someone else's woodsmoke just the same as cigarette smoke.

No matter how airtight a house is, studies have shown that the particulates invade one's home.
