calling smog an inconvenience.

11th Annual International Noise Awareness Day
is Wednesday, April 26, 2006

On Wednesday April 20, 2005, the 10th annual International Noise Awareness Day was observed throughout North America and in many other countries around the world, co-ordinated by the Noise Center of the New York League for the Hard of Hearing. Locally, members and supporters of the Right to Quiet Society distributed leaflets in Vancouver and other places to raise awareness about the ever increasing level of noise pollution in our environment. A report on INAD 2005 is on page 4 of our Fall 2005 NOISE-letter. Many thanks to all who helped to make this campaign successful.
