You have to do better than this on wind turbines, Andrea

London Free Press

Q: Where would the NDP position itself on the rural opposition to wind farms?

“It’s a sad thing because most people in Ontario think green energy is a good thing, but the government made a mess in implementation. They wanted to bring wind energy on quickly so they would have nice headlines in the GTA, but they didn’t do right by rural communities, cutting them out of the siting (where projects go) decisions. (Tory Leader Tim) Hudak said he will tear up the contracts, but we saw what that did with the gas plants. We will speak to municipalities about the possibility about giving them back the right to decide.

    • For those of you who still aren’t clear on the NDP position re IWTs, it remains:

      Build baby build, full speed ahead, screw the rural population as long as urban Elites can feel “green” all over, and so on.

      Many of the NDP MPPs and various hangers-on belong to or have close ties with most of the “green” ENGOs who clamored for the ridiculous Green Energy Act.

      Again, you gotta go with the lesser evil when you cast your vote.

      • There are lots of unions that have invested heavily in the green scam. She knows it, and will protect her buddies. The truth is, the turbines do nothing for our environment, and are destroying our economy. You are clueless Andrea Horwath.

  2. How about helping the people you’ve ALL allowed to get sick Andrea??
    Not a word. This is going to be one helluva lawsuit!

    • She is no better than the Lieberals. She denies the health, and other problems caused by the turbines. If you call her office to talk about turbines, they slough you off, and refuse to answer your calls and letters. Horwath is no better than Wynne, she is protecting her cronies.

    • In my opinion, that would be correct.

      Tabuns is the “big man on campus” in the NDP ranks and has many ties to the ENGO cabal.

  3. STOP and smell the air…..turbines make people sick. How can you not fight with every breath you take to fix this crime? Politics is such a sleazy business and Andrea fits perfectly into this sludge.

  4. Andrea would rather sit back with her latte and think of herself as a peoples person. Probably has never been to a wind factory or anywhere north of Hwy 7! I truly believe the next election will make toast out her and her Buddy Kathleen.. Toronto rate payers are getting really pissed as the media exposes how inept this government is at business 101. Unfortunately, it will be too late for most of us….. so back to Plan B…. ” Operation Swiss Cheese ! ” NOW!

  5. Andrea…… Still waiting to hear back from you re: the e-mail message I sent to you a couple of weeks ago!! Have you taken off early for Christmas break or did you not mean it when you said you wanted our feedback?? Did you only want words of encouragement and praise or were you willing to respond to the tough questions as well? I’m beginning to think the “former” was your intention. Sorry I couldn’t accommodate you on that one!!

    • Sorry John, but she doesn’t answer calls or letters from the victims of this windscam. She denies all health effects. I gave her, (personally), a copy of the letter that my son’s specialist wrote, saying that turbines would indeed be very harmful to him, because of severe sensory issues. She promised to get back to me, but never did. When I tried to get in touch with her, she refused to respond to calls or letters. She is just as despicable as Wynne!

  6. Q: Where would the NDP position itself on the rural opposition to wind farms?

    Nothing to see here:
    ‘[excerpt] (Tory Leader Tim) Hudak said he will tear up the contracts, but we saw what that did with the gas plants.’

    Then Andrea Horwath (NDP) said:
    ‘[excerpt] We will speak to municipalities about the possibility about giving them back the right to decide.’

    Value added: Now we have to negotiate with municipalities on –
    whether or not
    [you know the rest].
    OMG! What if municipalities – don’t want their ‘right to decide’ back?

    See?
    Bells will be ringing……mmm…mmm…mmmmmmm
