The city announced last week that it would finish off Canada Day with a pyrotechnic show in place of what’s normally a massive fireworks show. The decision was made by an unelected arts and culture manager, Franca Gualtieri, who cited “cultural sensitivities” as well as environmental concerns.

But on Thursday, ten out of fourteen city councillors signed their names to the notice of motion to overturn the decision.

“Be it resolved that council direct Administration to include an aerial fireworks display as part of the City’s 2023 Canada Day celebrations provided it can be achieved within existing budgets,” the notice reads.
