Res­i­dents have a right to be mad

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - EDITORIAL -

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.

Evan Larter, Char­lot­te­town
