This summer we visited the Kootenays and especially enjoyed your scenic Nelson.

I write, however, to encourage you to take action against the (mostly over-nourished elderly) men who are noise-polluting your town with excessively loud motorcycles.

We feel obliged to tell friends here how otherwise idyllic evenings dining outside on your streets were blighted by their noisy vehicles. We wish you success in reclaiming your peace from these attention-seeking irritants.

David Richinger, Zürich, Switzerland
