Canada Day fireworks over by 10 p.m.

For some reason, the Canada Day fireworks started about 15 minutes before their scheduled time of 10 p.m. last night. The show was all over before 10 p.m., taking some people by surprise and disappointing those who had planned to arrive just before the scheduled time.

Ahmed Hussen’s spokesperson told me that the MP was at the Amesbury fireworks there and couldn’t shed any light on the reasons for Weston’s early start. There was nobody available at Councillor Nunziata’s office when I called but will update any response received.
