Andre Den Tandt wrote a letter to the Editor of the Meaford Independent with a powerful argument for Meaford Council to take a strong stand in opposing industrial wind turbines.
Reader: Tell McGuinty We Don't Want Wind Turbines:
...gutless politicians unable or unwilling to admit and correct a gargantuan mistake, clever public opinion manipulators, operators taking maximum advantage of taxpayer-funded subsidies masquerading as national or inter-national do-gooders, truths cleverly hidden, falsehoods and flaws concocted and cleverly dressed-up as virtues. Thus a seemingly good idea became a hoax.Please read the entire letter at the Meaford Independent website:
All of this in a democracy where a victorious premier or prime minister is supposed to become the steward and guardian of all the people, as opposed to attacking the vulnerable minority who, during the last election, gave him a black eye in all rural ridings, except one.
That, Meaford Council, is the situation we face. Premier McGuinty has recently said that he will only put Wind Turbines where local councils want them. Let's take him at his word. No more dilly-dallying please. For the sake of us all, for our future as a tourist-friendly destiny, a wholesome place to live and a great one to retire to, please get off the fence. Real green is something very different from this masquerading imposter. Tell Mr. McGuinty we don't want them.
Andre Den Tandt, Meaford
