Residents of Ahuntsic-Cartierville are complaining that the constant noise of planes is keeping them up at night and they plan on doing something about it at the airport annual meeting this Thursday.
Trudeau Airport says airlines are fined if they have planes over 45 000 kilos taking off or landing between 11 PM and 7 AM.
But the residents say that sound curfew isn’t being enforced because the noise pollution is keeping them up at night.
“We get mad because we don’t sleep well and then we can’t work properly the next day,” Antoine Bécotte, the president of Les pollués de Montréal-Trudeau, a group that was created in 2012 to represent Ahuntsic-Cartierville residents, said.
“They don’t do anything about it, they don’t make reports, they make decisions behind closed doors and they don’t answer what we ask for.”
The group will be at the meeting to ask officials to respect the curfew and to review traffic routes so fewer planes circulate over residential neighbourhoods.
A petition with 3000 signatures was also given to Transport Canada asking for the same thing in March.
