MONTREAL – Saint-Lambert residents will have to continue to bear with the noise coming from Parc Jean-Drapeau this summer.

Judge Chantal Corriveau refused the request for an injunction by the city of Saint-Lambert Friday to force big-scale festivals like Osheaga and Heavy MTL to turn down the music after 7 p.m.

Residents had complained the noise was unbearably loud, and some insisted they had even lost sleep because of it.

Corriveau wrote in her 15-page ruling that the noise did not exceed the 80-decibel limit and so asking festival organizers to lower the volume would inconvenience the events and the festival-goers more than the residents.
