CLEARVIEW TWP. — A group of Clearview Township residents fighting a windfarm proposal west of Stayner are upping the stakes. Following a protest last Thursday outside the Stayner Community Centre, where windfarm development WPD Canada was hosting an open house for its Fairview Wind Project, Preserve Clearview has launched a petition calling on the provincial government to enact a moratorium on all wind turbine development in Ontario until a recently-announced federal government review of the health effects is complete.
The petition also calls on the province to recognize the presence of the Collingwood Regional Airport and a private aerodrome on County Road 91. The petition states WPD’s reports “do not recognize these impacts” on those two facilities. Petition organizers will be presenting the petition to Clearview Township council on Monday, and organizers hope it forms part of council’s discussion on a report by the municipality’s planning department recommending council not support WPD’s plan, and to urge the province not to issue an approval.
