Congratulations to Surrey bylaw officers for having the foresight to go online to find people in Surrey selling fireworks, confiscating them ($13,000 worth) and giving out $6,000 in fines.
I wonder what would have happened if all the confiscated fireworks would have ended up in being lit off on Halloween night. Our neighborhood had to listen to them all night. The last explosion, which sounded like a bomb, was at 2:30 a.m. on Nov. 1.
The City of Surrey needs to realize that applying for permits to light off fireworks is a failure. Young adults, those aged 12 and over, were randomly letting off fireworks all night on Halloween. Obviously, their parents do not have a clue about what they are doing, or do not really care.
