The Ford government changed the lawful construction working for all construction projects to be permitted between 6AM and 10PM - seven days a week.
For essential construction - they're now allowed to build around the clock - 24 hours a day.
These changes were made early on in the COVID-19 pandemic, and while they were excessive then, they are completely unjustifiable now. Allowing commercial and residential construction sites to operate for so long each day has a drastic impact on the local community, who are often not able to sleep and relax because of the non-stop noise.
It's past the time to reinstate the previous City of Toronto noise by-laws for construction hours for residential and commercial projects immediately without delay and stop the endless construction noise impacting the quality of life of Toronto residents.
