MOE censors important setback information from EBR submission

Below is a copy of a submission that was made last July 2009 to the Ministry of Environment (EBR #010-6516), dealing with proposed regulations and implementation of the Green Energy Act. It contained information to consider when setting the regulations, including setbacks, for wind turbine installations.

According to the MOE, they had to remove any personal information, such as name and address etc. before they could be published for the general public. On this submission they also blacked out some other vital information from the viewing public.

Someone who knows the author knows what they blacked out.
#1 – “green energy”….(hosted by the MOE)
#2 – “standing committee”
#3 – “456”
#4 – “700”
#5 – “700”

Our ministry has arbitrarily chosen to suppress certain pieces of information from a public submission. They were to use these submissions when making very important decisions regarding our communities and our homes.

Please check your own submissions. The CD’s that contain all of the submissions are available from your local Ministry of Environment office.

For your convenience, listed below are all of the district offices. Call your local office and tell them to mail you a copy of the EBR submissions CD (EBR Posting #010-6516). You can also pick one up if you live close by or view them in hard copy.

Thanks.
