On the advice of our Lawyer Eric Gillespie, Anne Fairfield and Edward Engel (on behalf of the West Lincoln Glanbrook Wind Action Group), in an agreement with the Lawyers for Vineland Power Inc , have asked for a Consent Dismissal of their Appeal for an Environmental Review Tribunal Hearing and their STAY Motion.
Our Canadian Constitution is called our Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Our constitutional question asks if the manner in which Industrial Wind Turbines are being approved is unconstitutional insofar as they allow for the violation of our rights under Section 7 of the Charter, among other things. The Minutes of Settlement indicate that when the matter of the Constitutional Question is decided before at least two other Tribunal Hearings, which are currently in process, the answer will be brought back before the Tribunal hearing the HAF Wind Energy project and applied to our Constitutional Question as well.
In the meantime, residents of West Lincoln should watch for announcements of the upcoming information event, Year in Review, being planned for September 25th in the Wellandport Community Centre. This will be your opportunity for “one-stop shopping” for all the information you wish you knew about Wind Turbines in West Lincoln and Haldimand County, and why WLGWAG has been opposing this potential Industrial Invasion for over three years. Mark this “Go-to-Event” on your calendars now and spread the news to your neighbours so they can get involved.
