While donations this year have dropped, the Salvation Army has been told it can't bring musical cheer to a busy Toronto hub.
According to the Globe and Mail, the organization has been told it can't have its brass band play at Union Station, next to its donation kettles, because it was too loud.
The paper reports that there were complaints coming in about loud music in the station.
The charity has decided not to have any kettles inside the station because the band can't play.
This year, the Salvation Army's Toronto campaign has collected about $250,000 less than at this time last year. Nationally, their goal is $21-million this year, but they have only raised $14-million.
