Sherbrooke residents who live near the Center canin de l’Estrie, a dog training and dock jumping facility, have filed a petition claiming the small shop is too noisy for the secluded neighborhood.
Center canin owner Sébastien Lemay told The Record that only one neighbor has a problem with their facility. Michelle Leblanc was exposed as the architect behind the petition. She has asked the City of Sherbrooke for assistance.
“Since last July, she’s been sending us an anonymous letter threatening us with fines and calling the police, the SPCA, but we couldn’t answer because it was anonymous,” said Lemay.
He has received eight formal complaints in the past 12 months, three of them about excessive noise levels, while the other five were related to a breach of COVID-19 health and safety precautions. However, Lemay was never fined by the police.
