Remember when we told about the Parry Sound noise war a few weeks ago? Back then, it was mostly a war of words, but things are heating up.
The whole brouhaha started when some local residents decided they were tired of the noise from motorsports events in the area, particularly the events hosted by the Ontario Camp of the Deaf, and tried to shut them down. Some local politicos were accused of trying to make sure events like snowmobile racing and motocross were heavily restricted (or banned) in the region (including Seguin Township), and finally some local gearheads decided to push back. You can see their Facebook page here.
Things have gotten much nastier in the weeks since, it seems. According to the group’s Facebook page, someone spread about three pounds of nails across the Camp of the Deaf’s driveway a couple weeks ago, resulting in several flat tires.
Then, a few days later, vandals struck again, this time attacking the camp’s sign (see the photo on the right). As far as we know, nobody has been arrested in either of these crimes, and law enforcement hasn’t announced a link between the incidents and the ongoing battle over the camp’s motorized events.
But, this sounds like it’s more important than ever to show your support for the Camp and its events. Visit this Facebook page and find out how you can help. Remember, while this is off-road racing, the same anti-fun, anti-noise advocates attacking the Camp’s off-road events will target your street bikes next.
