Aircraft flying out of Greenwood include Cormorant search and rescue helicopters, Aurora patrol aircraft, Hercules transport planes and occasionally CF-18 jet fighters.  Read article

      Just an extreme example of how whacked out people are when it comes to anything having a green label slapped on it. This stuff will go down in history as ‘the great green scam’.

    In the States the IWT and solar developers have been able to overrule the military on a regular basis due to political pressure from Washington. Patronage from renewable energy developers is considered more important than national security.

    I think the turbines would make for good targets.

    Hmmmmmmmm……what’s a few birds, bats or military aircraft, can’t they see those slow moving blades and stationary towers and avoid them. If military run out of targets in NS we have few here in ON for them to shoot at
