Steve,

We have banned the sale of fireworks in St. Catharines.  We have a By-Law in place that requires a permit to sell consumer fireworks and to discharge display fireworks.  It’s trending now in social media.  Citizens can purchase fireworks from outside our City or online as I hear some of the fireworks providers are delivering.  I went on our local radio station yesterday and advised that we heavily recommend that you do not set off fireworks on your private property this Victoria day.  Our firefighters cannot social distance when responding to a call, plus fireworks draw large crowds.
