Mr. Stengel, et al.,
You posted the following:
“Summerhaven Wind, LP takes its responsibility to be good stewards of the environment seriously, and that includes the recent decision to remove an eagle’s nest and tree within the Summerhaven Wind Project.
As background, during three years of comprehensive bird surveys no eagle nests were found within the general project area. We estimate that the nest was built sometime in late 2012.
We had two choices: Do nothing and hope there would be no impact to the eagles in the nest or chicks that may come in the future. Or be proactive and remove the nest now to give the eagles ample time to relocate before the breeding season.
The experts we consulted, including those at the Ministry of Natural Resources, agreed that removing the nest now would significantly reduce the potential impact to the eagles while giving them time to relocate before breeding.
That was the right decision and in the best interest of the eagles.
Summerhaven Wind, LP”
Using the general gist of your posting as an example, here is my response to your posting:
As I see, we have one option only: be proactive and remove NextEra/Summerhaven Wind LP from Ontario as the company and the project do not comply with environmental values or environmental stewardship generally accepted by most Ontarians. This action would be the best for the people of Ontario–not to mention our Bald Eagle population.
Oh, and by the way, don’t let the proverbial door knock you on your backside as you are leaving! Toodles 🙂
