  1. And so the mass destruction of rural Ontario, (to satisfy the greed of the fatcats in the big cities)…,…goes on unabated. We need to gather everyone together, and camp on the premier’s doorstep, (no matter who it happens to be), and demand an end to this scam!

  2. I am sick beyond myself about this decision. We directly face this project (500m) and will be down “wind” from the sound & flicker and it will now be the view from my beautiful front porch for the next 20 years. Thank you Mr. McGuinty & Ontario Liberals for ruining our farm environment with a non-fiscally feasible “visible” green solution. This wind farm affects 243 homes within a 2 mile radius and yet, a new ruling says that residents cannot place a ground mounted solar installation(Micro-Fit, read “much smaller) if their property abutts a residential property. Why? Is it offensive to residents? Don’t you want renewable energy in the cities where it is so greatly consumed? Come and live where I live. Come & live beside it. 🙁
