Council discussed updates to the Enbridge Wind Power Project’s dispute resolution process. The process was created in 2007 to provide a protocol for neighbours of the wind farm to resolve noise complaints with the wind company. Municipal staff met with Enbridge representatives to revise the document and now recommend it be updated to address all types of complaints.

It will also include a statement that Enbridge would cooperate with Hydro One to determine the source of any electrical concerns, and allow residents the option of registering complaints with the Ministry of the Environment. Councillor Jacqueline Faubert said any agreement related to turbines and noise lacks “teeth” since the MOE noise protocol is not scientifically valid. “Any dispute resolution protocol should not be taken as any change to the status quo with regards to turbines and noise,” Faubert said.

Deputy mayor Ann Eadie said “there are other things we wanted in [the document] but it is the best we could do at this time.” Eadie said at least it recognizes other types of complaints. Councillors discussed accountability after Faubert pointed out that complaints received by the MOE had not been forwarded to Enbridge in the past. Read article

    yaaa because the Misery of the Environment are hand in hand with the wind slime. like their going to do anything, what a laugh!

    just like the miseries lost all the documents of health issues in 2012, what a coincidence! oh boy, Councillors really have put trust in the devil. good luck with that one, perhaps they should have been slamming that door when they first started sniffing around in the first place, too little too late Im afraid.

    its a sad fact that one day these councilors will live to regret all over the place in just making due with some protections because they had a timeline from a wind farm to keep.
