Cashing in or selling out? In an unprecedented deal that could become standard fare under new provincial rules for green energy projects, a Southwestern Ontario township could rake in more than $5 million if it gives its blessing to a wind-farm plan.

One thought on “Selling out

  1. No amount of money, possibly short of the total asking price, plus relocation expenses, of each and every effected area resident & all other associated losses which come with the devastation caused by the installation of useless IWTs & solar. So, that offer would need 4 more 0s, plus. 50.1 Billion, not 5.1 million.
    Their footprint / devastation is not limited to 20 yrs. It doesn’t just suddenly stop . They don’t remove the concrete footings, roads, etc., fluff up the top soil & all’s back to it’s original state. Then there’s all the hazardous waste to dispose of from the solar panels/nacelles and such.One could go on & on.
    Don’t do it Southgate! Their arrogant offer sucks
