The Windsor Hum started around March 2011, and since that time there have been two studies to determine where it was coming from. The first study was carried out by NRCAN (Natural Resources Canada) in August 2011. The NRCAN study determined that the source of the noise was coming from in-and-around Zug Island. Yet, the first study could not pinpoint an exact source, so a second study was needed. Time went by and nothing was being done. The hum continued to ‘pound’ the residents of Windsor and Lasalle, and people were still being affected. Eventually the government came up with a second test (what would be called a more accurate test) on January 2013. The second test was due in January 2014, and it is now March 2014.
[amended blog post March 13-2014] I originally heard that the report was lost, or did not have a name. New Info that just came in: The report is not “lost” but is active and accounted for in the Office of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Trade. Although there was a recent cabinet shuffle, the report is with the OFFICE of the MFAIT and not one particular individual. Although Bob Dechert (who was representing the MFAIT) is no longer serving is his former capacity, the report is very much alive and is being actively pursued by the Office of MFAIT.
