Nuisances and Noise By-Law:
REGULATION CONCERNING NUISANCES AND NOISE IN THE COMMUNITY OF EAGLE VILLAGE AND ENFORCEABLE BY THE EAGLE VILLAGE POLICE.
REGULATION # 02
WHEREAS the Chief and Council deems it necessary to adopt a regulation aimed at ensuring peace, order, good government and the general well-being of the residents of Eagle Village;
WHEREAS the Chief and Council deems it necessary to adopt a regulation defining what is to be considered a nuisance and how to eliminate such nuisance by means of fines to those persons causing or allowing such nuisance to persist;
WHEREAS the General Assembly has been informed and consulted of the proposed regulation concerning nuisances and noise at a meeting held in the community hall on September 17th, 2002;
IT IS THEREFORE moved by Councilor Gail Joly, seconded by Councilor Tony McLaughlin and resolved to adopt the present regulation concerning nuisances and noise in the community of Eagle Village.
The preamble is an integral part of this regulation.
It is prohibited make, provoke or encourage to make, by whatever means, noise which may disturb the peace and general well-being of the neighborhood.
It is prohibited to use and operate a lawnmower, a chainsaw, a brush cutter or power tool between 11:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m.
It is prohibited to cause noise which may disturb the peace, quietness and general well-being of the neighborhood by conducting construction, demolition, maintenance or repairs activities, between 11:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m., on a building, a vehicle or infrastructures, at the exception of emergency work intended to ensure the protection and security of persons or of property.
Inside or outside a building, garage or house, it is prohibited to produce or permit the production of music, entertainment sounds or voices when the sound may be heard outside a radius of 50 meters from the point of transmission or production of the sound.
It is prohibited to project a direct light or to permit the projection of a direct light outside a lot from which it is projected if such light is likely to cause a danger to the public or an inconvenience to individuals.
It is prohibited to refuse to leave a private area or location when the person is told or summoned to leave by a person who resides in the said area or location, or is the guardian of the area or location, or by a police or public security officer.
It is prohibited to anyone, with no reasonable justification, to knock on a door or ring a doorbell or buzzer, to knock on windows or other parts of a private property, dwelling or building.
Any non-observance of this regulation constitutes a nuisance and is therefore prohibited.
The Eagle Village First Nation Council authorizes the Eagle Village Police constables and other duly mandated public security officers to press charges against anyone who contravenes to this regulation, to issue contravention notices for non-observance of any of the provisions of this regulation and therefore to be responsible for its application.
Anyone who contravenes to any of the provisions of this regulation commits an infraction and is liable of paying a fine plus the related administrative fees.
ADMINISTRATIVE PROVISIONS AND PENALTIES
For the first infraction the fine will be $100, for the second infraction $200 and for the third or more infraction $300. For each infraction there shall be administrative charges of $50 payable at the same time as the fine.
All fines and related administrative charges shall be paid to the Eagle Village First Nation.
The Eagle Village First Nation Council may take the appropriate legal actions against an offender who refuses to abide to this regulation, refuses to pay the fine and related charges or to take action to cease or discontinue the nuisance.
This present regulation is effective as of September 17th, 2002.
Please Note: Adopted in Eagle Village on the 17th day of the month of September, 2002. Chronological number 986.
Bill C-68, Canada's New Firearm Act
On December 1, 1998, the Firearms Act came into effect. This legislation was enacted in 1995 but the complexity of the law and the need to devise new reporting systems and procedures delayed its implementation.
Police agencies in Canada have been involved in the registration of restricted guns such as pistols and revolvers since the 1940's. In the 1980's police also started to process and approve Firearm Acquisition Certificates. With the Firearms Act now in place, police agencies will no longer be involved in any fashion in the registration and issuing of permits or licenses.
How will the new Firearms Act affect the Average Canadian?
Hunters have never had to register their rifles or shotguns and many gun owners have never gone through the process of getting a Firearms Acquisition Certificate because they weren't buying a gun or borrowing one. From now on, ALL guns, rifles, shotguns, crossbows, and previously registered firearms such as restricted or prohibited firearms will have to be registered by January 1, 2003. As well, ALL gun owners will have to be licensed by January 1, 2000.
What Kind of License Will I Need
If you own a hunting rifle or shotgun and you don't intend or purchasing or borrowing another firearm, a simple "possession" license will allow you to keep your gun(s). If however you intend on buying or borrowing somebody else's gun(s), then you'll need a "possession/acquisition" license. Owners of previously registered handguns and revolvers are somewhat familiar with the licensing and registration process but they will apparently have to re-register all their firearms.
Registration forms and license applications are available at the Post Office. For any other information about the Firearms Act, you can call the Canada Firearms Center Hotline at 1-800-731-4000 or access their Internet site at www.cfc-ccaf.gc.ca or e-mail [email protected].
The Canadian Firearms Center also provides some very informative pamphlets on gun storage, gun display, and transportation of firearms.
