The turbines for IPC/Suez’s East Lake St. Clair and the Erieau/Blenheim projects (each 100MW) are up and rumours indicate that they will go online soon. Misery loves company down here… more turbines means more victims.
Samsung/Pattern and RES held job fairs to get workers for the mega South-Kent (270MW) project that is already ripping up ground for roadways. Not everyone was happy at the job fair in Ridgetown, see photo (right) taken in the parking lot at the job fair entrance.
Opinions about turbines are surfacing everywhere, even along Highway 401 in Chatham-Kent.
And here is something unusual…
I drove down Green Line on the weekend… and couldn’t believe my eyes. A house has disappeared. It was a lovely brick bungalow about 35 years old. Located at 13340 Green Line. We haven’t heard anything about it burning down, and the people we have asked don’t seem to know what happened to it. The farm and missing house are owned by a Talbot Wind leaseholder, they had rented the surplus house out for many years. Two of the Talbot turbines went up very close to this place (maybe 500 or 600m away)… I wonder if the missing home was not livable anymore??… Enbridge gives the leaseholder a few hundred thousand extra and the leaseholder knocks the place down (no sales record or anything needed to cover it up)???
