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
