Noisy Neighbourhood!

I just HAVE to vent about the Emcon lot, since I live across the street from it. Let me preface this rant by saying 1) yes, I am aware that the highway resurfacing project is necessary and I am not saying we don't need it and 2) I realize that - SO FAR - no noise bylaws are being violated, YET, but... MAN, it's fracking loud and fracking annoying! They may start at 7am, which is within the noise bylaws, but still, that is fracking early for some of us, and, additionally, the noise goes on into the night! The racket is driving me up the wall and making me extremely cranky. To make things worse, I also live a block away from the arena, and they have a special exemption to the noise bylaws, and can start work at 6am. Well, at 6am I have been awoken TWICE this week by the constant annoying beeping of the cherry picker/lift thingy! This combined with the Emcon noise is fracking ludicrous! Thank God the arena project is almost done because I cannot take much more of this! I only hope the resurfacing project does NOT get special exemptions from the noise bylaws as the arena did! Thank you for allowing me to get this off my chest!
