SP Armow Wind made two offers to purchase the property of an area couple who had appealed the government decision to give the 92 wind turbine project the go-ahead. The lawyer who represents them said today the purchase offers would only be good if the couple dropped their concerns, which would in turn cancel an environmental hearing beginning today in Kincardine.
The lawyer representing Ken and Sharon Kroeplin says the offers were made only after the notice of appeal was issued. Asha James of Falconers LLP in Toronto says news of the offer prompted six members of HALT to want to join the appeal as well. She says she doesn’t want to broaden the terms of the appeal, just have the names added to the notice of appeal.
Sarah V. Powell, representing Armow Wind, confirms the two offers were made but refused to say if the offer came with a clause that the couple would have to drop their appeal. The Environmental Review Tribunal began today in Kincardine.
