A 91-year-old Quebec woman is a lot happier now that she won't have to pay a fine after a neighbour complained about a noisy La-Z-Boy chair in her apartment. Yvette Vachon was originally slapped with a 148-dollar ticket after someone downstairs called police two weeks ago during the evening to complain. The woman, who lives in Saguenay, was handed the ticket for violating a city bylaw on excessive noise. Her lawyer Charles Cantin says the police visited Vachon's apartment and -- without checking the facts -- issued the ticket based on what the neighbour said. He can't understand how Vachon could create a lot of noise. (After he told Vachon the ticket was cancelled, the lawyer described her as "one of the happiest women alive today.")
