[Editors note: below is an article that was sent in to me to post. With all the insanity involved in fighting an ERT (for me it is Nexterror’s Adelaide, the 38 turbine project around my home), I lagged in posting on OWR recently. But I’ll change that now, posting your submissions and my own confrontations – all that stuff we are told to keep quiet. All these “public documents” that get buried in the war, in our hurry to protect ourselves. These guys need to be called out on everything they do from now on. Enough is enough. – Esther]
Remember the story about the big-ass American wind company that decided to haul 5-foot 100 lb. Esther Wrightman into court because they didn’t like her parody of the corporate “brand”?
The lawsuit was widely ridiculed in the media as a thinly disguised SLAPP suit (Strategic Litigation Against Public Participation).
Now, it looks like the Ontario MOE and its Liberal goons are not happy that Wrightman has filed an appeal of Nextera’s Kerwood wind project. What especially pisses them off is that Wrightman is an ordinary citizen with the ovaries to take on the province and its pet, $34 billion bully.
What’s Esther doing wrong now? Um, simply following the rules and trying as best she can to get her submissions and evidence to everyone involved.
Make no mistake, this is serious; apparently it ties up a lot of scarce and costly legal staff at MOE “Command and Control.”
Below is a sampling (from a recent MOE motion) of how Esther is getting under MOE’s skin. Got it?
It’s the old bug-a-boo of costs! More than once MOE and Bully Wind have become so exasperated that they have played the “costs” intimidation game, knowing full well that most people cower and flee when “We’re gonna attack your pocketbook” is screamed at them!
