Residents have a right to be mad
When it comes to the gravel trucks on the port of Charlottetown: As the longest-serving resident of the 211 Water St. apartment building that’s directly across the street from the port (I moved in November 2014), although my bedroom is located on the opposite side, I can’t use one hand to count my neighbours, past and present, whose bedrooms face the wharf and how annoying it is to hear all night long the gravel trucks’ rumblings and bangs.
I tell them that I grew up with big trucks and know, like Mayor Lee said in your front-page article, there is nothing that can be done in terms of laws broken.
Yet, I can’t imagine what my neighbours must be feeling. I’d no doubt be mad if I was trying to sleep in that side of the building, too.
