Efforts to stop the construction of a wind turbine near homes in Saugeen Shores appear to be falling on deaf ears. Close to 300 people protested today outside the Canadian Auto Workers Education Centre south of Port Elgin. They are upset the turbine is being built so close to homes in the area.
But because the project was approved before the Green Energy Act was passed it does not have to meet the current setback regulations. Construction has already begun on the CAW property.
There has been no comment from officials with the union. Among the people at the protest today were the Mayor of Saugeen Shores Mike Smith, Huron Bruce MPP Lisa Thompson and Huron Bruce MP Ben Lobb.
