LETTER: Some blueberry growers act unneighbourly

I live in North Bradner, near two blueberry farms. The farms happen to be right across the street from each other.

One farm does not use cannons and seems to operate very successfully. The second farm, unfortunately, the farm closest to me, uses three triple-shot cannons.

At one time or another, myself and many of my neighbours have spoken to the owner, pointed out how annoying the cannons are, and have asked him to try something different, but to no avail.

We wonder why do some blueberry growers act in such an unneighbourly manner?

One farmer is proving every day that cannons are not necessary, while the other is the neighbour from hell.
