SIGN MY PETITION – Urge the Province of Ontario to ban modified mufflers that create excessive noise

By Issues, Resources, Ward 1

SIGN MY PETITION HERE. 

 

Please take a moment to sign the petition to urge the Province of Ontario to ban modified mufflers that create excessive noise

I recently put forward a motion at both the City of Mississauga and Peel Regional Council to ask the Province to enact further amendments to the Highway Traffic Act to directly target loud and modified exhaust systems.

Vehicle noise from street racing and aggressive driving go hand in hand. That, combined with modified emission control systems can create the “perfect storm” for vehicle noise related issues.

Please feel free to share with others. Read More

Blooming Boulevards volunteers grew these native pollinator plants from local wildflower seeds this spring. The plants are being installed in the 4 beds at this location. These hardy perennial species will bloom throughout the growing season, beautifying the Lakeshore streetscape and providing our native bees, butterflies and other pollinators with food and shelter year-round. The garden beds will be part of a pollinator habitat corridor connecting our parks, which will further support biodiversity.
