The Vancouver City Council has sanctioned American pyrotechnic freedom celebrations within city limits, but only between the hours of 9a.m. and midnight this Independence Day. Thankfully, consuming hamburgers and hotdogs is still permitted without restrictions.

We at COUV.COM wish you a freedom-filled and safe Fourth of July.
