London Free Press – Wind turbine backlash real
It is evident the McGuinty government downplays and dismisses opposition to its proposed proliferation of wind turbines across rural Ontario. In a recent media article I read “wind energy remains popular with many Ontarians.”
I suggest this is untrue. There are 58 grassroots citizen groups in Ontario representing tens of thousands of residents opposing the onslaught of industrial wind turbines. There are 77 municipal councils in Ontario requesting changes to the dictatorial power of the Green Energy Act. This should be a clue something may be wrong with their policy.
I don’t believe there has been such a grassroots backlash against any government policy such as this since 1919 when the United Farmers of Ontario fought back and defeated the incumbent government.
This is a huge issue in rural Ontario and it would be in the urban cities as well if people would wake up and realize the the heavily subsidized industrial wind farms with all their negative side effects are not a viable energy solution.
