West Island residents fuming over noise from Trudeau Airport
Over 75 people voiced concerns about noise pollution from flight paths at Trudeau Airport.
NDP MP for Notre-Dame-de-Grace-Lachine Isabelle Morin called the meeting Wednesday evening because of the high volume of complaints she has recived from constituents.
She says most complaints have to do with the frequency of overnight flights coming in and out of Trudeau Airport in Dorval.
Morin's riding is comprised of Dorval, Lachine and Notre-Dame-de-Grace but she says people in Dollard-des-Ormeaux, Ville Saint-Laurent as well as other boroughs and municipalites share the same concerns.
Almost two decades ago flights were not premitted to take-off or land at Trudeau Airport between eleven in the evening and seven in the morning.
When those restrictions were removed Morin says the Quebec Public Health Board was supposed to conduct a study on how residents were effected by late night flight paths.
"It's been a year now that they were supposed to table this report they haven't done that," said Morin.
Residents say they don't need a study to know their health is being effected negitively.
"You fall asleep, then you're awake, you fall asleep, then you wake up again," said Diane Lacroix, a Dorval resident for 22-years.
Airports are under federal jursidiction and residents hope that Morin can take their complaints to Ottawa this fall.
