(December 13, 2013) Simcoe-Grey MPP is reeling after getting news that the Ministry of the Environment has accepted wpd Canada’s application as “complete” to build eight 500 foot industrial wind turbines on the flight path of the Collingwood Regional Airport and other airports in Clearview Township. The approval moves the application onto the technical review stage, which could result in final approval in a mere few months time.

Today, Wilson sent an open letter to Premier Kathleen Wynne to question her government’s decision to push forward with the application. “I am writing to you today in response to your government’s decision to declare wpd Canada’s application to build eight 500 foot industrial wind turbines on the flight path of the Collingwood Regional Airport complete and accepted for technical review,” wrote Wilson. “As you are aware, my constituents and I strongly oppose this project.”

Wilson continued, “Premier, this decision was made by your government without consultation and in spite of safety concerns. It goes against resolutions opposing this development from the Township of Clearview, Town of Collingwood and Town of Wasaga Beach. Once again, please find enclosed a letter from the Collingwood Airport Services Board, as well as the aforementioned resolutions against this project.” Read article
