Thousands of Calgarians, including Conservative MP Michelle Rempel Garner, are calling for the city to reverse a decision to cancel its annual Canada Day fireworks display.

Last week, the City of Calgary announced it would cancel its Canada Day show and replace it with a light show due to climate and cultural impacts.

A petition launched by Common Sense Calgary over the weekend calling for the fireworks to be reinstated has already garnered over 6,000 signatures.

“I can’t quite believe I have to say this, but, it’s not racist to want to celebrate Canada Day with fireworks – or to celebrate Canada Day at all,” the petition reads.
