Opposition group is determined to fight

“SBWOG is still determined to fight this project,” said Leslie Disheau, representative for the South Branch Wind Opposition Group (SBWOG), on April 11th.

The opposition group is hard at work trying to raise awareness and support for their effort to stall and, ultimately, stop Prowind Canada’s wind turbine development project, the South Branch Wind Farm. As reported in an earlier edition of The Leader, on April 10th, two local MPPs, Jim McDonell for Stormont, Dundas and South Glengarry as well as Steve Clark for Leeds and Grenville, hosted a public meeting in Dixon’s Corners. The meeting was held in response to requests from the opposition group for a balanced public information session. “I was pleased with the public turnout at the meeting,” said Bruce Albers, president of the South Branch Wind Opposition Group. “There were some excellent comments and questions. I applaud Jim McDonell and Steve Clark for recognizing the concerns of their constituents and addressing them, something both municipal councils refused to do.”

“I thought it was very telling that those bodies whose responsibility it is to protect our community refused to attend the meeting.” read article
