We wish to offer our congratulations to the Picton Recreation Committee for deciding to step back from sponsoring fireworks on Canada Day this year.
Your reasons behind this decision are to be applauded.
We have long held the view that such displays are extremely harmful to the environment and given the current climate crisis, yours is the only responsible one that can be made.
There will undoubtedly many who will complain loudly about this, but if we are going to avert the impending climate effects on us and our children and all future generations, we have to make changes in the ways we have been doing things.
Consider the flooding last spring affecting many here in the county; the current disaster in Australia and wild fires in other areas of the world including Canada; drought in many parts of the globe.
