Protest

On Friday April 3rd, 60 Wind Concerns Ontario members showed our displeasure at George Smitherman’s lack of compassion in Underwood, Ontario.   

Bill 150 is attempting to strip municipalities and citizens of the right to any say on how electrical generation plants are to be built in our neighbourhoods.    McGuinty and Smitherman have only taken direction from the wind industry who stand to profit in the billions.   He wants to use rural residents as the scapegoats and allow industrial turbines too close to homes and families across the province.dsc015881dsc015871dsc015921

Of the more than 40 people who spoke, just six were solidly in favor of the project. For some, the coming of turbines may even cause them to leave th […]
