Never doubt that a small group of
thoughtful, committed citizens can
change the world; indeed, it's the
only thing that ever has.
What great cause didn't initially seem like a struggle?
Forty years ago, motorists regularly tossed garbage out their car windows,
people smoked in grocery stores,
and billboards littered our highways.
Thanks to a generation of dedicated activists, all this has changed.
Twenty years ago, most people laughed at the notion that second-hand smoke was
dangerous. Now it's an accepted
fact, and virtually every province and municipality has restrictions on
smoking in public.
Today a new generation of dedicated citizens are beginning to educate the public
about the hazards of noise
pollution, and people everywhere are taking action.
Airplanes are being forced to adopt quieter engines, children's toys are being
scrutinized, gardeners and their leaf blowers are being targeted by
municipal bylaws, and boom cars are being shut down.
The days are numbered for propane cannons!!
