Ah – so good to hear that Toronto is going to start addressing noise in the city. Soon there will be more enforcement of the bylaws about noise. This crackdown will not affect construction noise or emergency vehicles. BUT – it will go after “noise scofflaws” – those with loud cars, loud stereos, etc. Mayor Tory cites it as an health issue, talking about how excessive noise affects peoples’ health. Yep. You are right, Mr. Mayor. Here is a link to CBC’s piece on it.
