The Town of Saugeen Shores has refused to participate in a community liaison committee to monitor the operation of the Canadian Auto Worker's Union (CAW) wind turbine in conjunction with the CAW.The full article may be read at the Shoreline Beacon website:
Council agreed to note and file a letter from CAW president Ken Lewenza during committe-of-the-whole last Monday night, after it found Lewenza's terms for the committee to be too restrictive.
"I think we'd be better off with no committee than a committee structured like this," complained vice-deputy mayor Doug Gowanlock.
The terms of the committee called for one representative from council, one representative from the Beachers' Association and either the police chief or fire chief to join three members from the community who support, oppose and are impartial to the project.
The remainder of the committee would be comprised of a minimum of seven CAW union staff and required that at no time should the number of community representatives outnumber CAW representatives. The committee would always be chaired by a CAW member.
