  1. Finally some hope for Huron-Kinloss residents. It is too late for the folks in the photo, but through their efforts others may be able avoid the ravages of Industrial wind turbines. Congratulations are in order.
    It will be interesting to see how the resolution holds up to legal challenges.

  2. “Good job” I hope more will follow suit. We in the U.S. watch with hope to your area.

  3. A municipality just grew a pair, its about time, lets see all of the municipalities in Ontario join together, and stand up to this Green Energy Bulls@#!, You may not stop it today, but I’m sure this will slow down the process making it much less profitable, and giving time to find other ways of stopping the destruction

  4. A democratically elected government actually acting as such?

    If I didn’t witness it with my own eyes, I would not have believed it!

    Can it be so?

    R.R.

  5. This moratorium is very ballzy-tell-it-like-it-is. Very blunt.
