Leave it to Quebec....
Ok... you need to put you "imagination cap" on for this.
Quebec is a province in Canada... (check a map man)
It's bigger than Texas... with, like... a tenth the population,
all of whom are situated along the main body of water running through the province.
Now...
Picture a reasonably big off road motorcycle.
Now put it in your living room.
Get someone who knows how to to drive it...
and have them start it up.
Now you know the brrr... BRRRR... brrrr thing when they twist the handle? (throttle?)
Any ways, imagine it's turned ALL THE WAY ... so the thing is SPEWING HARD CORE smoke and SCREAAAAAAAMING LOUD.
Can you picture this?
Ok... now that's quiet compared to a snowmobile.
A snowmobile is like the noisiest vehicle on the planet, next to the space shuttle.
So... if a steady stream of these beasts are driving past your front door ALL DAY AND NIGHT for several months of the year... to the point where you cannot talk for the noise or breath for the pollution... you'd ask someone to do something about it... right?
Well some people did... and the courts looked at the data and said "fuck'en eh man... you are sooooo right." and awarded 8 million in damages to the plaintiffs.
The noise pollution was phenomenal...
So what does the Quebec Government do?
Tell the Snowmobiling industry to make quieter machines?
Mufflers maybe?
Or how about pushing the snowmobiles to park trails instead of IN FRONT OF PEOPLES HOUSES... ?
Nope...
The ram through legislation that PROHIBITS CITIZENS FROM suing snowmobile organizations for noise pollution for two years.
The idea is that the snowmobile industry will sort out their problems in the next two years. hahahahahahaha...
These are a bunch of french guys driving rocket ships with treads. There is no fucking way they will sort anything out.
But while they go about their noise, smelly, DANGEROUS, business... everyone else can suffer because the government is on the snowmobile's side.
Fucking idiots. How about banning the snowmobile until the industry sorts out the issues with noise and pollution? I bet you they'd make progress if they did that.

Ok... happy friday... :D :D :D
