Did you Know Bill 150 known as the Green Energy Act…

  • Takes away your civil right to object to any infrastructure project proposed for your neighbourhood regardless of impact on you and your family.
  • Strips municipalities of their planning protection rights, effectively re-zones all of Ontario into an Industrial zone.
  • Severely curtails environmental rights.
  • Eliminates the need for proper Environmental Assessment thus putting Threatened and Endangered Species at risk.
  • Eliminates previously protected designated Green Spaces and gives them to Industrial Wind Turbine developers.
  • Excludes Ontarians from any say or objection in the establishment or location of industrial wind turbine plants.
  • Systematically Silences Ontario citizens .
  • Fails to address health issues or any impacts on residents whatsoever
  • Bestows the Energy “Czar” power over pricing and procurement.
  • Awards aid to commercial wind-turbine developers, whose profits will come exclusively from public funds (guaranteed 20 years).
  • Enacts a ”reverse onus” clause whereby developers will no longer be accountable, but rather it is the “victim” who must prove harm by doing their own costly environmental assessment. The victim is allowed only 15 days to complete.
  • Infringes on our right to fair government, health and safety, and erodes trust and checks and balances in the system.
  • Raises your electricity bill by an estimated 30%
  • Search and Seizure – Grants the government the right to enter a place of business without a warrant to ensure conformance to energy audit standards with fines of up to $25,000.

  1. I feel that 1.5 km is the right setback distance. We should learn from the mistakes made by the European nations who have been using windpower much longer. As far as I’m concerned, the big issue right now is that we have excess power and nuclear reactors
    are being idled or selling their power for negative prices while we pay three times the price for wind.
    This does NOT make business sense … why should the taxpayer fund windpower. I suspect it is really about making money for those in the windpower business. This is not the way to make long-term decisions. At least STOP the funding NOW and stop wasting the taxpayers money to benefit those in the windpower industry. I’m sure there are lots more worthwhile causes than GOING GREEN to support. Going GREEN is wonderful but let’s keep it in perspective. WE HAVE ENOUGH POWER NOW … windpower is not a reliable source and is not very efficient.
