For those of you unaware of the ban, the city of Welland has outlawed campfires in your backyard. There are no exceptions to the rules despite many of us having both cooperative neighbours and large lots. The city has ruled a blanket by-law that does not discriminate neighbourhoods, streets or sections of land. The Tribune seems to have the inside scoop on this story which can be found here. http://www.wellandtribune.ca/ArticleDisplay.aspx?e=3123433 (Many thanks to Maryanne Firth for writing the article, but I would like to point out this site as well : http://www.city.welland.on.ca/Fire/FireStats.asp . You'll notice that "Open-Air Burning" was actually the cause of 117 calls in 2010 and not the stated 140.)
