Advocacy group raises questions about noise over Montreal-Trudeau

Montreal - A delegation of the citizens' committee Les Pollues de Montreal-Trudeau met with the NDP leader Thomas Mulcair Friday afternoon to raise the issue of the very serious aircraft noise pollution a large section of the population of Montreal has been subjected to over the last few years, due to changes in air traffic management by NAV Canada and the failure of Aeroports de Montreal (ADM) and Transport Canada to intervene.

Residents of the boroughs of Villeray-Saint-Michel-Parc Extension, Ahuntsic-Cartierville and Saint-Laurent, and of Mont Royal, explained to Mr. Mulcair that they have suffered a significant drop in their quality of life, caused by the transition to low altitudes of aircraft taking off and landing at Montreal-Trudeau Airport, as well as the significant increase in night flights. Mr. Mulcair assured the residents present at the meeting of the NDP’s total support for their cause.

Les Pollues de Montreal-Trudeau also sent requests for meetings with other party leaders. They will be meeting with Mario Beaulieu, leader of the Bloc Quebecois, next week. They also have great expectations of Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau, whose constituents in Papineau are very much affected by aircraft noise.
