WAIT-PW seeking $300,000 to hire Julian Falconer

FalconerBy Tyler Kula, Sarnia Observer
Residents of Lambton County are being asked to donate $300,000 to join a potentially precedent-setting charter case, questioning the Ontario government’s approach to industrial wind turbines with inconclusive data about how they affect people’s health. “We’re nearly certain it’ll go to the Supreme Court, so we need to get there,” said Ingrid Willemsen, a director with the group We’re Against Industrial Turbines Plympton-Wyoming (WAIT-PW), at a packed town hall meeting in Camlachie Monday.

The group, which opposes Suncor’s planned 46-turbine Cedar Point Wind Power Project, is looking for the dollars to hire noted human rights lawyer Julian Falconer, and join other communities embroiled in wind turbine battles in taking their case before Ontario’s judiciary. Willemsen said the group expects Ontario’s Environment Ministry to approve the Suncor project, and will need a lawyer to appeal to the Environmental Review Tribunal, and potentially other courts.

  1. It’s obvious that Falconer is well informed and has a thorough understanding of our predicament.

  2. All those who participated in or attended the ERTs knows how they work. A do-it-yoursef project?
    Maybe they could save the Suncor ERT legal fees and use them to hire Julian?

  3. ‘[excerpt] Dr. Arlene King, Ontario’s chief medical officer of health, has said there is no “direct causal link” between wind turbines and the reported health effects.

    “Before you can avoid swallowing the pill, you have to prove it’s going to kill you?” Falconer asked. “Have they lost their bloody minds?”

    Yes! Yes! Yes!
    ……I think I’m feeling it!

    Vote Conservative!

  4. Lets break that word down, “CONSERVATIVE ” Con\ a deceiver Serve \ serve Ative\ liability
    Yep another stupid bunch of baby-sitters for slaves,now looking at deceivers serving more liabilities for their nanny state .

  5. Any case involving IWTs heading for the Supreme Court of Canada will at the very least cause investors to think twice about investing in Ontario IWTs.
