So, where’s the pictures of the protesters at the so-called grand opening of the Harrow wind farm? I was there and there were plenty of protesters, yet none were in the article in the paper.
They call this a farm? I do not see any harvest going on here. Farms have a harvest, usually grown produce. All we see is another government issue being forced upon us, and another “government elect” representing it.
I live in the middle of these ugly things. There are three in the farmer-owned field behind me. I had no say in whether or not they should be put on the land directly behind me and all my neighbours agree.
I live here. They are ugly, noisy and we do not like them. And, to top it all off, we had no say in the matter. They claim there will be jobs created by the building of these things. Yes, there will be but not for our community. These workers are all from Toronto and surrounding areas, not here. The farmer and the government are the only ones who profit from these things.
Our rates go up, and yet, we are the ones who have to look at them and put up with the noise. Today, I got mail from the owners of these monstrosities. Where is it going to end?
Are they going to expropriate our land like they are doing for the new bridge? I grew up there and had to leave that neighbourhood because of government, also. I guess that I will have to move to the wilderness to stop them from pushing me around.
