In the past year or so, I have heard all sorts of false and misleading arguments used by those who support the use of propane cannons. After a recent barrage of propane cannon misinformation in a local newspaper, I thought it was time to add a page to this site and list all the false and misleading quotes that cannon supporters are feeding the public.

What is motivating these people to say virtually anything to perpetuate the use of propane cannons, when they know that these devices are impacting the lives of so many people in the Fraser Valley?

The bottom line really is that propane cannons produce noise pollution at upwards of 120 decibels, which is louder than a jack hammer. Neighboring farmers and non-farmers alike are forced to listen to these blasts all day long, dawn to dusk, for four months of the year. No amount of misinformation can justify the wrong that is being done to so many Fraser Valley citizens.

The following is the list of flabbergasting quotes, and my thoughts on each of them:
As the long hot summer in the Fraser Valley drags on, and this issue continues to heat up, we are going to be hearing more and more dumb reasons why blueberry growers have to use propane cannons. The above list is certainly going to get longer.

But in reality, there really is no good reason why anyone should be permitted to use propane cannons and bombard their neighbors with noise pollution at levels up to 120 decibels. Noise at this level is more than a nuisance, it is a health hazard.
Propane Cannons Can Give a Person an Attitude!!
