Response to Envision’s Telephone Campaign Strong
December 8, 2011
In November, Envision Edmonton launched a telephone campaign to garner support for the
Edmonton City Centre Airport (ECCA). Anticipating that the ECCA will become an issue in
the provincial election expected in the spring of 2012, Envision Edmonton started calling
households that signed their petition in 2010.
Those people that were contacted with a recorded message were given a choice to talk to an
Envision volunteer to get the latest updates on the airport issue. The response and support

Callers were asked if they remember signing the petition, why they felt the airport should be
kept in our city and if they wanted to start receiving our newsletter, Envision Momentum.
The call centre is closing for the Christmas season to give our hard working volunteers time
for their family and is scheduled to reopen after the new year.
