If it happens again... you can say “oh its a misundersdanding... i was actually just roasting some weiney’s on this small charcoal bbq... “
Then show your little bbq with a fire starting
“Maybe the kindling j used for the coals was really smokey!”

Great .... another armchair lawyer who is giving out nonsensical information. Even a quick Google search will tell you it is far more complicated than your "consent or nothing" theorywebshark wrote: ↑ If he asked than it means he can't come on to your property. Just say no. Never give consent to anything with any enforcement unless you are 100% in knowing you are not breaking any laws. Same thing applies if police/ enforcement ask to search your car or a bag. You have to give consent. If they arrest you then its a whole different story.

The Fire Protection and Prevention Act, 1997 also provides for rights of warrantless entry. Under that Act, no distinction is made between parts of your property that are used as a ‘dwelling’ and those that aren’t, and a fire inspector may enter and inspect land and premises, without a warrant and at all reasonable times, for the purposes of assessing fire safety. Moreover, the fire safety issue does not need to present an immediate health and safety concern.

If the OP wants to talk about "options", he could try to do a couple of things to still have a fire. Someone already was kind enough to post the Mississauga by-law (post #6 of this thread).Kiraly wrote: ↑ Heh. We lived in the suburbs when I was a kid and had a fire pit. They were legal to use for BBQing. Once my father used it to burn leaves and garden waste. It made a huge amount of smoke. Neighbours complained and call the fire department. They showed up in a fire truck and full gear. My mom called out to him from the house "The fire department's here!" I've never seen him move so fast. He ran into the house and back out with a couple of wieners. By the time the firemen came into the backyard he had the grate down and a pair of pink wieners on. The firemen just rolled their eyes.

Yup. Dad learned his lesson after that, he never burned leaves in the backyard again.
