Canadian Government Struggling To Identify Source Of Mysterious Windsor Hum

humHopefully the answer will be uncovered before residents’ grip on sanity reaches the breaking point. Via CBC News:

A federally funded report on the Windsor Hum has been submitted to both the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Natural Resources Canada. For years, residents in west Windsor and neighbouring LaSalle have been complaining of a mysterious rumble or hum.

Both ministries are reviewing the results of the $60,000 report, said the University of Windsor’s Colin Novak, one of the authors of the report. The final review has not yet been conducted.

Officials are trying to arrange a meeting between the ministries and researchers, including Novak and the University of Western Ontario’s Peter Brown.

In 2012, a different federal study suggested the hum may originate from the U.S. side of the Detroit River, in the general area of Zug Island, an area of concentrated steel production and manufacturing.

    No one likes Windsor. It’s a place were thieves and general riffraff live.

      you could have as easily said the same of Ottawa. Although I’ve heard the hum emanating from Ottawa is far more mentally disturbing to a larger radius.
