The other day, yet another article showed up in my Google noise alert message.  This one is about noise in Toronto.  The twist I liked was that Mr. Braga provides a historical context to noise in Toronto, starting with the first anti-noise movement in the 1930s, which resulted in the 1939 city by-law against “unnecessary noise”. He also notes that plans to restrict noise has often been directed at people of colour and other marginalized groups, which is an aspect of the anti-noise movement that is often neglected.

It is a good article – check it out.
