A little respect, please

I realize that when Molson Brewery first established itself on Circular Road many decades ago, city planning was in its infant stages but respect is a universal law that has no boundaries of time.

I find it appalling that it is now 10 p.m. and the very loud noise as if steam was being released from the brewery just stopped after two torturous hours.

Does Molson not respect its neighbours but only its beer sales? I might add that its increasing annual profits might allow some budgeting to perhaps move the brewery to a more industrial zone, which brings me to my second point. Huge 18-wheeler trucks have great difficulty manoeuvring around Fleming and Belvedere streets which poses a safety risk, especially during some of our great snowfalls which make the streets even more narrow. Big 18-wheelers on side streets? What the heck? What’s our city doing about this?

Maybe a boycott on Molson products might convey the message that we deserve respect. There are families here, and my four-year-old granddaughter is just one member of the neighbourhood who deserves a peaceful night void of noise pollution caused by Molson.

    I thought the noise by law was for 11.

    Was Molson Brewery on Circular Road before you bought your house? If so, why are you complaining, you knew that it would be there and it was your decision to buy and live in the neighbourhood. I can't understand why people do this and then think it is all going to go away.

    Molson's and Labatt's were located where they are (on hill sides) to take advantage of gravity in the brewing process years ago. Perhaps you should have thought about buying a house so close to and industrial neighbor if you didn't want that trouble
