Council going to province for wind turbine buffers

Eadie suggested making phone calls and sending letters to officially express this concern.

“It doesn’t hurt to send more letters,” she said. “Is the province saying to us, ‘you can be hemmed in with windmills’? I want answers.”

Some councillors looked for a more forceful course of action. read article

    ‘[excerpt] “What is the process? What are we asking? What is council hoping to do about this?” asked Councillor Jacqueline Faubert. Faubert said legal precedent had been set, and the municipality should strongly consider seeking legal counsel.

    “If there are law firms with expertise, we should look into that,” said Mayor Larry Kraemer.

      Just ‘how’ frustrated – on a scale of 1 to 10?
