Sorry, neighbour

Published on August 7, 2014

As the brewery manager of Molson Coors’ St. John’s brewery, I would like to extend my sincere apologies to Bernice Penney (“A little respect please,” The Telegram, Aug. 5) and our neighbours for the noise incident that occurred the other night.

The St. John’s brewery has been in the community for almost a century and we have witnessed the growth of neighbourhoods around us.

As one of Canada’s oldest companies with a history of helping out our communities in which we work and live, the last thing we would ever want to do is to be disruptive to those around us.

The incident the other night, while within municipal noise bylaws, should not have occurred and we have taken steps to ensure that if the work has to happen again, it will be done during operating daylight hours.

Additionally, I have communicated to our fleet to be mindful of the trucking presence on Circular Road as it is a shared roadway.

Thank you for taking the time to raise your concerns and again, on behalf of all of us at the St. John’s brewery, our apologies to you, your neighbours and your granddaughter.
