An Ottawa businessman participating in a Christmas-themed parade received a $110 fine for excessive noise for caroling just a little bit longer than the rest of the holiday floats.
The Ottawa Sun reports that the owner of Junk to Funk, a junk removal company, was issued a citation for excessive noise about 15 minutes after the Orléans parade of lights came to an end Saturday evening.
A company truck had been pulling a garbage bin trailer in the parade, covered in Christmas lights and filled with children. When the parade ended and the truck left the parade scene, the lights remained on and the music remained loud. Apparently too loud. The driver was issued an excessive noise ticket under the Highway Traffic Act.
Can I hear a "Bah! Humbug?"
