AGM - continued . . .|
Animal welfare is a new field of studies. In Northern Europe, U.K. and Canada there are twice as many researchers as in the USA. Dr. Weary answered many questions from the floor and received a hearty applause. Hans thanked Dr. Weary for this most interesting presentation and presented him with a Right to Quiet T-shirt as a token appreciation for his kind effort.
Mr. Brian Price was next to address the meeting with his concerns about noise from small aircraft flying to and from the harbour over residential areas of Vancouver toward the Interntl. Airport and beyond. Air traffic has dramatically increased in recent years. Also, many planes and helicopters fly very low and cause lots of annoyance to residents. Mr. Price has already contacted the Airport Authority and Transport Canada about this problem to no avail so far. He has started a small group to work on this issue and asked for our society's support. Hans pledged to provide what relevant information we have to him and help in what other way possible. He will keep in touch with us.
The meeting adjourned at 9:25 p.m.
