Noisy sound-devices are a big risk to our hearing and health!
Petition: With the Fall 2005 newsletter we enclosed a copy of a petition and asked to return it in January. Please, if you still have it, return it to us when you renew your membership. Should you wish more time to collect more signatures on it, please return it when possible. Please note that you are not required to fill the whole sheet, though we appreciate if you could.
Legal Assistance Fund: In 2003 the Right to Quiet Society established this fund to assist people with litigation in certain circumstances. Explanations and application form are posted on our website. Without access to the Internet contact us.
11th International Noise Awareness Day: The next INAD is scheduled for Wednesday, April 26, 2006! For this annual noise-awareness campaign we are planning to distribute leaflets and write to politicians and news-outlets again. Please let us know if you would take on some of that work or distribute brochures in your area.
Imposed radio-playing on buses: Our attention was drawn to drivers of the new small community shuttle buses in Greater Vancouver playing a radio for their entertainment, while passengers are prohibited to play such devices on Translink buses. This imposition should not be tolerated, just as smoking is prohibited, for every passenger's health and comfort. We urge our members to protest against that by calling Translink at 604-953-3040 and demanding noise-free bus rides!
Noise guns to scare away messy Canada geese
The City of Trail may have done a great job keeping dogs off its best beach but a flock of more than a dozen Canada geese isn't paying attention to the signs at Gyro Park. The city has heard so many complaints about their bathroom deposits that it is seeking a permit from the federal government to use noise-making starter guns to shoo the geese away. The city parks and recreation manager, who is taking on the project, said three noise-making guns have been ordered and each has a different sound. (Trail Times)
