MONTREAL, Feb. 22, 2018 /CNW Telbec/ - On the initiative of the Les Pollués de Montreal-Trudeau Citizens Committee (LPDMT), 70 citizens have signed personal letters to Dr. Richard Massé, Director of Public Health (DSP) of Montreal. These letters are delivered today to the DSP of Montreal.
These citizens state in their letter: "In order to ensure my health, I must know the facts. Facts will also raise awareness of the entire population and elected officials. To achieve this goal, scientific data is needed. Citizens demand that the impact of aircraft noise and air pollution on health be documented by the DSP: which part of the population is affected, by which intensity, and with which consequences for health.
LPDMT is a citizens group incorporated as a non-profit organization in the Summer of 2013. Les Pollués de Montréal-Trudeau calls for transparency in airport management in Canada, exemplary and modern management of environmental impacts resulting from airport activities and a substantial improvement of the soundscape, which includes a strict curfew between 11 pm and 7 am, among other things.
