If you read my previous rant you know how upset I am at those who idle their vehicles and poison our world. A few months ago, I was discouraged that my simple act of asking individuals to shut off their engines was not having enough impact. My ‘new to Canada’ neighbour especially drives me crazy as he runs his diesel fuelled GMC extended van every morning for 20 minutes no matter what the weather. We’ve had a few delightful confrontations which usually end with him yelling: “You, woman, go in house. I do what I want!” He even pounds his chest. I’m not kidding. That’s when I decided to produce an ‘end idling’ commercial. Luckily I know some very talented people who jumped on board. Here is the result. (I’ll be sending my neighbour a thank you note for being the push behind the project).
