Anti-Idling Bylaw for Thunder Bay, ON
This petition had 97 supporters
Motor vehicles are major sources of air pollutants, which are associated with adverse health effects. The Canadian Medical Association states that 21,000 premature deaths, 92,000 emergency room visits and 620,000 doctors’ visits are due to air pollution. This has an economic cost of more than eight billion dollars per year. The respiratory effects of air pollution include asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and cardiovascular effects may cause heart arrhythmias, cardiac failure and stroke.
An anti-idling bylaw will decrease air pollutants in our community and affect the health of the people living here.
