News of Transport Canada orders to remove 8 turbines near the Chatham Municipal Airport provides a fresh reason to review the current situation in Kincardine, where NAV Canada's concerns communicated to Samsung/Pattern in April 2012 were unknown to council until a full year later (some background here)

We have evaluated the proposed Armow Wind Farm study area based on information provided to us January 31, 2012. Since specific turbine location and elevation data is unavailable at this time, our assessment is based on the entire project area boundary and a single maximum elevation of 445m (1459.9738ft) above mean sea level (illustrated in Appendix B).
This method of assessment is an excellent means of determining all possible ANS (Air Navigation System) impacts and allows re-configuration of individual turbines within the study area without change to the final ANS impact analysis; however, as this assessment method considers a larger area than will be necessary for individual turbines, it constitutes a ‘worst-case’ analysis and can reveal more ANS impacts than an assessment of individual turbine sites
