The City of Calgary is cancelling its massive Canada Day fireworks show and replacing it with a light show due to climate impacts.
The city said there are cultural sensitivities related to ongoing efforts at truth and reconciliation with Canada’s First Nations. It says it believes the changes will mitigate disruptive traffic, noise, and overcrowding issues at city viewpoints.
The city also says a light show will be friendlier for wildlife, like birds.
