Ban the Cannons

In the Fraser Valley of British Columbia, a group of citizens has started a campaign to ban the use of propane cannons by local blueberry farms (PDF). Propane cannons have long been used to scare depredating birds from agricultural fields. In this instance, residents complain that the cannons are causing noise pollution and that there are other, more environmentally friendly, ways for the farms to deal with the problem. This site was last updated on 10/20/2003. Were the citizens and farmers able to find a mutually agreeable solution to this conflict?
