Rural landowner ordered not to use outdoor wood furnace during summer

A Judge of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice has found that interference of one property owner's use of an outdoor wood furnace with his neighbours' enjoyment and use of their properties warrants an order that the furnace may not be used between April 1 and October 15.  The Township of Ramara sought a permanent injunction restraining any use of the wood furnace, but the Court declined to order an all-out ban.  At issue was whether the operation of the furnace "unreasonably interferes with the normal enjoyment of human life and property" for the neighbours.
