Noise in paradise

That’s all I can think of right now because one of my neighbours is cutting his lawn and it’s annoying me. Can’t we do something about that?

I have recently read three letters to the editor regarding noisy motorcycles.

It’s likely that many of us, if not the majority, have moved to Parksville/Qualicum Beach from a city with thousands of people, noisy buses, cars and motorcycles, congested traffic, honking horns, sirens, etc. I wonder how many of us took the time to write complaints to the papers there about all the noise.

Now that many of us are retired, are we getting a little crabby? Sure, sometimes a motorcycle, large truck or loud car drives by. But really, does it completely ruin your day?

Think about the positive reasons why we live here. It’s a great place in a beautiful part of world and we get to live here.

Well, that’s all I can think of right now because one of my neighbours is cutting his lawn and it’s annoying me. Can’t we do something about that?
