The Régie intermunicipale de police Thérèse-De Blainville (RIPTB) and the four municipalities it serves – Boisbriand, Lorraine, Rosemère and Sainte-Thérèse – have teamed up to develop an awareness campaign against noise pollution. This campaign will be rolled out during the summer months, when noise problems are more frequent.
With a light-hearted concept and the slogan Ici, on réduit le bruit! / Keep it quiet!, the campaign highlights four problems shared by the municipalities: modified mufflers on vehicles in May, landscaping equipment in June, loud music in July and the constant barking of dogs in August. The four visuals of this integrated campaign will run from May to August and will be supported by these municipalities’ various communication tools.
"Since the return to normal life after two years of the pandemic, the Régie de police has noted an increase in noise-related complaints throughout the territory. With this light-hearted awareness campaign, the four municipalities wish to make residents aware of the importance of good citizenship and respect for others. By becoming aware of their environment, everyone can do their part to reduce non-essential noise pollution and contribute to quality of life in the neighbourhood," stated Christian Charron, Mayor of Sainte-Thérèse and Vice-Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Régie intermunicipale de police Thérèse-De Blainville.
The Mayors of the four municipalities served by the Régie intermunicipale de police Thérèse-De Blainville teamed up for the launch of this campaign on noise pollution: Christian Charron of Sainte-Thérèse, Christine Beaudette of Boisbriand, Eric Westram of Rosemère, and Jean Comtois (see insert at bottom of photo), Mayor of Lorraine, who is missing from the group photo. They are accompanied by Karine Desaulniers, Inspector, Operations Support of the RIPTB.
