People want to enjoy the fire, and not the smoke.
Most people don’t even realize the effects that the smoke from their wood burning fire pit and fire place have on their health and the community around them.
Municipal councils have the authority to make a public health impact with a stronger wood burn bylaw. The City of Saskatoon is showing homeowners that they acknowledge the health of all citizens.
Let’s make a bylaw change to allow for people to still bond around a fire in their backyards, but let’s all work together to make the switch to a cleaner option, there are now many alternatives available!
