Basic local democracy is being pushed aside in the rush to put up wind power generation. How can we fight for democracy in other countries and not stand up for democracy here at home in our backyard?
I am against provisions in the Green Energy Act that do not allow local communities and neighbours to have a say when wind and solar projects are proposed. In some cases, neighbours are not even being properly informed. That is wrong.
I am against wind turbines being erected in our community under the Green Energy Act.
The risks to the environment and the health of our families are not yet fully understood, so I will fight for a moratorium on the construction of any more wind turbines until appropriate health studies have been properly conducted.
The best approach is to keep the Nanticoke Generating Station open by converting it to clean coal, natural gas, or biomass generation. This will more than meet our energy requirements and allow us to reduce our impact on the environment.
Our present MP’s approach is to ignore the entire issue. She has been completely silent on the issue.
I will never be silent on issues that affect our community in such a profound way.
