Nippising MPP Vic Fedeli, the P.C. party’s energy critic, joined a panel of local MPPs at a public meeting held in Strathroy recently to discuss the public’s concerns about wind generation and the province’s Green Energy Act.
More than 300 local residents turned out for the meeting which was hosted by Lambton-Kent-Middlesex MPP Monte McNaughton.
Also joining the discussion was Sarnia-Lambton MPP Bob Bailey, Huron Bruce MPP Lisa Thompson, and Kent-Essex MPP Rick Nichols.
Ontario Energy Minister Chris Bentley was also invited but did not attend.
McNaughton said since being elected his office has been inundated by calls from residents expressing concerns over the health, cultural and financial impact of a number of wind farms proposed to be constructed within his riding.
“The number of people here tonight speaks volumes about the concerns and complaints we are hearing about wind generation,” he said.
