Raquel Feroe Edmonton March 5, 2008

I am an adult supporter of a group called Eco-Air in Edmonton Alberta. Edmonton's Children's Organized Anti Idling Recruiters. The kids are all under age 14. We have gotten press in Edmonton and we are helping with Edmonton's educational campaign. We are working on a CBSM campaign rewarding excessive idlers with decals if they to commit to Idling reduction. We went to city hall yesterday to speak to an anti idling bylaw and discovered the Mayor is worried that a bylaw could cost too much money and not be very effective. Is there any bylaw info people could share that talks about the economic arguments> Any info on return on investment ? In my brief search it seems the costs are underestimated and so I am having a hard time finding anything useful.
