2nd Canadian Long Weekend - Same Stupid Suburban Fireworks

A tiny, naive part of me secretly hoped that the recent Canada Day long weekend would bring a different type of serenity to the neighbourhood. Alas, the same suburban idiots continue to think it’s cool to impress their drooling offspring by lighting off fireworks just feet from their neighbour’s homes.  When you need a license these days to do everything from drive a boat to own a pet, when will the Canadian (or even Ontario) government realize that fireworks are decidedly NOT for the great unwashed masses?

If I can’t have a controlled *fire* in my backyard, why can people go freely to the closest 7-11 and buy the means to take down my street?  Did you know that fireworks were banned in Canada in the early 1970’s? Whaaaat happened?
