A group protesting wind turbines in Dutton/Dunwich took their case to the streets Thursday, greeting guests arriving for a Christmas party sponsored by the company.
Approximately 22 residents carrying protest signs, greeted traffic arriving at the Dutton/Dunwich Community Centre for a Christmas party. Protesters were peaceful and simply handed out an information sheet before allowing vehicles to come in off the street and park.

“Concerned Dutton/Dunwich residents have established a group to formally opposed to industrial wind turbines projects proposed for this community,” read a handout from the group. Invenergy has been negotiating with landowners for leases in Dutton/Dunwich that would allow to erect wind turbines.

In recent discussions with Dutton/Dunwich, the company has said it is no longer interested in participating in public meetings on green energy, but will hold stakeholder meetings instead. The company told Dutton/Dunwich Laurie Spence Bannerman it is not interested in being part of the meetings because the earlier ones tended to turn into shouting matches. Ric Walford, a spokesman for the citizen’s group, said it wanted the company to be clear on where large groups of residents stood when it came to wind turbines. Read article

  1. “James Murphy, director of development for Invenergy, said he did not think it was appropriate for protesters to show up at a Christmas dinner to make their point.”
    Spoiling the fat cats Christmas dinner. Hard to be thankful for a wind turbine company seeking to destroy the habitat of people and wildlife.

    • Of course they don’t want protesters. However, they leave us no choice.

      Here is my promise: If/when the turbines start spinning near me (Samsung, Haldimand), I will RECORD that noise and I will play it back in THEIR backyard(s)!

  2. I pray for the day that the tables are turned on the wind-baggers and sleezy politicians. When the contracts are thrown out as fraudulent, the turbines are bulldozed, the wind-criminals are thrown into jail, and their ill-gotten gains are redistributed among their victims by the courts .. then there will be justice!

  3. James Murphy, director of development for Invenergy – your company – if it builds will be in these peoples lives 24-7-365, so a brief interruption of your celebratory Christmas party is a mere puff of wind..
