Groups from all over Ontario will target visitors of major tourist areas in a province-wide information picket. Where do the urbanites flock to in your area on the long weekend? Please join other groups in this effort. More information will be posted as it becomes available.
Rondeau – Shelburne – Grand Bend – Port Elgin and wherever else we show up!
Greet heavy traffic with signs and information on May 21st, Monday of the first long weekend! Some areas will be a few people with signs and some areas will be hundreds of people with signs and all are ready to wake this province up!
Rondeau Park (Chatham/Kent/Essex)
Come on out to help educate the visitors to Rondeau about our concerns with industrial wind turbines. Meet just outside the park gates (between Rondeau Joe’s restaurant and the gates) on Monday (the 21st) at 1 PM. Bring signs if you have them (some extras will be available), decorated t-shirts or whatever you like. Bring some friends out to enjoy the great weather that is predicted while providing an important public service!
We will be setting up in the middle of the turbine mess north of Shelburne where 7+ families have been bought out by the wind company, where many others sit and suffer because no one wants to buy a turbine/substation toxic home and where the For Sale signs and the vacated properties are at an all time high.
At 1:00pm on Hwy. 10, north of Shelburne, between County Road 17 and County Road 21, we will park next to a hydro pole on the EAST side of the Hwy. (Drive to the center area between these two roads and take the next available hydro pole on either side of protesters already there.) Pull over as far as you can. Plan to decorate your stationary vehicle with signs, etc. The space between where you are parked and the next person is parked at the next hydro pole is your area to picket with your mobile signs: homemade, premade, banners, balloons; anything goes!
Be sure to stay OFF of the highway itself at all times for your own safety and for the safety of drivers passing by.
Grand Bend (Huron-Lambton-Middlesex)
Information protest during the May 24 long-weekend (Monday, May 21st at 11:00am-4:00pm) at the Grand Bend main intersection. Pass out pamphlets at the intersection of Highways #21 and #81 and hopefully hundreds of us will show up carrying signs displaying our anti-turbine sentiments. Bring your signs, whistles, costumes etc. and email anyone you know who is willing to participate.
Under the direction of S.T.O.P., Port Elgin will have two Information Kiosks located on Port Elgin’s Main Beach and Gobles Grove Beach. These information centres will be open on SATURDAY MAY 19 from 11:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. You are invited to gather information concerning IWTs.
S.T.O.P. is looking for extra volunteers to help make this event a success. Contact Wayne Mc Grath (832-2725)
