  1. Every time one of these units moves through Wallacetown, we have a problem.
    The transport can not navigate the corner at Highway 3 and Currie Road. The escort team must remove the STOP sign on the corner, and replace it when the transport has passed. Several times a day. There must be a better way. Maybe not delivering them to the project.
    One day… as I was sitting in line…. waiting for the parade to proceed, a young man told me not to worry ” we are not delivering them to your neighbourhood”, I feel sad for the recipient community.

  2. It’s just fortunate that another vehicle was not along side when that tower section rolled off the transport truck.
    Passed a tower section headed east on 3 last Thursday.

  3. The long and the short of it stop the Wind Turbines!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! – living in Ontario I believe along with allot of other people that we have had enough of being told what is good for us and being lied to etc etc by the Ontario Liberals!!! give them the boot voting time!!! like I said before email and call them!! – right now I am on my again 30th email to the Premier of this province! – it only took 80 emails to answer one question! and the most important one she didn’t reply to re Wind Turbines!! – well I am NOT going away! – and I hope others feel the same way!!!!! STOP THE WIND TURBINES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • I write the Premier and Chiarelli at least 3 times a week regarding the Wind Turbines.
      My latest e-mail was regarding Bob Chiarelli’s advice to “wear a sweater if you are cold”.
      Lately my emails have been returned with a note stating that their e-mail account is full. Pathetic! They have never responded to my questions and concerns!
