Another Wind Protest

Regional | by John Divinski  

Many local residents expected in Toronto for another wind trubine protest.

There could be a big contingent of Bruce and Grey county residents in Toronto protesting wind turbine development.

A protest rally is planned for Tuesday in conjunction with the Ontario Feed In Tariff Forum being held in Toronto as well.

The rally is on Front Street beside the CBC building, and across from the Metro Convention centre where the FIT session is being held.

It begins at Noon with speakers on the issue of wind turbines, followed by a parade.

Speakers include Larry Solomon of Energy Probe, Environmental Lawyer Eric Gillespie, and PC Energy Critic MPP Vic Fedeli.

Bruce Grey Owen Sound MPP Bill Walker says it's time to step back from turbine development.

He says right now we're paying other jurisdictions to take our excess power so why not slow down and study the health effects of turbines on people and animals.

Huron Bruce MPP Lisa Thompson agrees.

She says the Liberal government just doesn't get it.

Thompson says the subsidies the government is committing to, is going to bankrupt everyone.
