Fireworks will not be a part of this year’s Canada Day events in Golden. This decision was made proactively based on the annual risks of wildfire (we typically book fireworks and a technician many months in advance), as well as feedback received from the community about the impact of fireworks on pets and wildlife.Canada Day is also a day for us to reflect on what it means to be Canadian. This includes educating ourselves and reflecting on the story of Canada and what that means for Indigenous peoples.Here are some resources to learn more about Canada’s history:History of Canada: http://www.canada.ca/.../can.../services/history-canada.htmlIndigenous History: http://www.canada.ca/.../history.../indigenous-history.htmLearn about the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Calls to Action: https://bit.ly/3wKDOhJNational Centre for Truth and Reconciliation: https://nctr.ca
