Authorized class action concerning excess
aeronautical noise over the island of Montréal

The Superior Court authorized a class action against Montréal-Trudeau Airport, NAV Canada (the air navigation service which fixes the routes and overflight lines of aircraft) and the federal Department of Transport (Attorney General of Canada), concerning several Montreal neighborhoods overflown at low altitude and around the clock by more and more planes. The aeronautical noise measurement was recorded thanks to sensors that sort the intensity of the decibels produced by the only aircraft. The data shows that the instantaneous noise measurement exceeds the recommendations of the World Health Organization and the Montreal Public Health Institute, which endangers the health of the populations concerned.
