  1. This paper is very pro Liberal. I’m surprised they wrote anything at all about the meeting/Rally.

    The weather was terrible, but the people still came and it was obvious they were on our side. The official head count was 689 people.
    We canvassed for nearly three weeks door to door to get a feel for how people felt about the wind turbines and we must of had at least 95% say they don’t want them. The best part is a very good number of them have educated themselves and know full well what these turbines will do to their lives.
    WPD would be wiser to move on because this neck of thee woods is only going to get louder.

  2. Wind Power Development (wpd) Canada – scared to death – but, continues to read
