I am not familiar with the law but you should check to be sure that you can even bring them across the border before you buy.

@Miss Eagle: I agree with PP that you should check to see what she can bring back to Canada; that woud suck if she purchased a ton of sparklers and was unable to bring them across the border. I can see where they could be technically classified as “explosives.”

If you find out she can do it, they sell them at pretty much any fireworks store. I woud get them sooner rather than later being that the 4th is coming up, though!

I’ve gotten the extra long sparklers at Dollarama in Edmonton. They would probably have them in Calgary. I think there were 6 or 8 per package.

I don’t think the label of “bullcrap dangerous goods” is so far off the mark when they are ignitable substances wrapped and surrounded by other flammable substances.

However, I do understand your frustration.

Fireworks are incredibly dangerous, actually – hence the special handling charge when shipping. UPS/FedEX refuse to ship them unless you have declared the items and allow them to do special handling. The risk of them igniting while being shipped on an airplane, and thus crashing to plane, is too high for them to allow.
