Annoying nuptials

Congratulations Manpreet and Harpleet on your marriage. All of Fleetwood had to endure your airplane advertisement from 8:30-10 a.m. on May 25 as a plane dragged a banner with your names on it in a low-flying droning circle for an hour-and-a-half.

I have lived in the Fleetwood area for almost 25 years and am comfortable living under a flight path. This event was the first time that I had to try to lodge a complaint because of the extraordinary low-flying altitude and the noise which did not abate for that full time.

My larger frustration however was my attempts to contact, Nav Canada, Transport Canada and local aerodromes to complain. The buck passing was systemic. There appears to be no direct line for this kind of annoyance.
