MyKawartha Article: Turbine protestors make final stand at consultation meeting:
"As far as we know, this is the first proposal that is being evaluated in the Oak Ridges Moraine," said Mr. Williams, pointing out that, with the Green Energy Act superceding the previous Oak Ridges Moraine policy, there will be no stopping other projects if Sumac Ridge moves forward.Read the entire article at myKawartha.com:
Local MPP Laurie Scott - who was joined by Huron-Bruce MPP Lisa Thompson who made the four-hour drive to Bethany - urged everyone to not give up the fight.
"We need to make these companies understand that they're not welcome here," said Ms Scott during the rally which elicited applause and the comment 'they're not welcome anywhere' from within the crowd.
In support of the public, Ms Scott committed to maintaining pressure at Queen's Park "to oppose wind turbines for those municipalities that don't want them."
Ward 16 Coun. Heather Stauble encouraged people to send letters or e-mails of objection to the wind company - and copy her as well - and ask that the documents be included in the Renewable Energy Approval (REA) approval, which is the company's next step, and as part of the public record.
