Hi,

Any word if Calgary is going to go ahead with a noise bylaw?

Heard talk about it then the election sidetracked it.

Thx

You're probably thinking Miquelon Lake, unless you're going to Camrose via Jasper.

Not sure if they're going to open up that can of worms again, but as far as I heard last fall, Calgary and Red Deer both said they got bigger fish to fry, noise bylaws were scrapped.

It was raining here in Calgary, now it's just crappy.
