Phone calls about fireworks concerns were appreciated
Editor: I recently wrote a letter to the editor about how fireworks traumatize pets at this time of year (The Times, Oct. 17).
I must tell you that I did in fact receive a phone call from Bill Storie (of the Langley Township bylaw department) and also Mayor Jack Froese regarding the issue, which involves the use of fireworks.
Although there appears to be very little that can be done unless the culprits are in fact caught in the act, I am assured by both men that every effort is being taken to at least reduce the use of fireworks.
There are still so many options available to the public to access fireworks, and it is difficult to monitor and enforce the bylaws.
I was pleased that both people contacted me personally and showed great understanding and empathy for my concerns.
They also showed sympathy for the impact the fireworks have on the pets in our community, and I want to thank both of them for getting back to me.
