Fireworks promise a let-down

Signage mistake on Canada Day leads to tourist disappointment

Dear editor,

I need to express the disappointment in your town on Canada Day. I was told there would be fireworks in your town and I also read a sign that was on your civic center board which stated:

Canada Day

fire works

Port Hardy

Harbor

At dusk.

So to myself and my very disappointed 5 yr old daughter they did not happen. We came to Port Hardy from Campbell River where we have Canada Day fireworks and would have stayed here in Campbell River to watch them if we would have known there wasn’t any fireworks.  There was mixed answers from everyone that we asked and nobody knew what was or wasn’t going on. I highly recommend that when you are going to celebrate something as special as Canada day you get your act together and get a bit more organized.

From a disappointed tourist in your town.
