The federal government spent a lot of money promoting the use of fireworks. Ads were on TV, as well as on the government web site and elsewhere.
Somehow, the ads promote Canada as strong, proud and free. I donâ€™t understand the connection between fireworks and strong, proud, and free.
Someone set off fireworks here in Murrayville, and it concerns me that the persons setting them off may have been influenced by federal government ads.
I would like the Township of Langley to contact and try to convince the federal government to advertise more positive things.
A good example would be to promote organic gardening. Canadians have a much better chance of being strong, proud, and free if they eat organic food rather than the pesticide-contaminated processed food in the stores today.
