The Globe and Mail, Colin Perkel
The first court phase of a legal fight aimed at scuttling what would be one of Ontario’s largest wind-energy developments kicks off Monday with a farm family trying to force an immediate stop to its construction.

Documents filed in support of their request show Shawn and Tricia Drennan are concerned about the potential harm the 140-turbine K2 Wind project near Goderich, Ont., could cause them.

  1. The Drennans legal suit against K2 goes back several years and predates the MOE approval of the project. One wonders why approval was granted while outstanding challenges were working their way through the court system. I witnessed construction on the project last month; it is proceeding at a frenzied rate. The same MO seems to be in place in all turbine construction:
    Get construction well underway, so courts will be reluctant to put a stop to it. In Chatham we saw several towers built on an airport flyway, even though these clearly contravene federal laws.
    This injunction should be granted regardless of how far advanced construction is; the case should be considered on its merit. Given the Ont political climate, I wouldn’t count on it.

  2. The picture is Goderich, but the story relates to London today, I believe. Other wire stories support this. The decision as usual will take some time.
