The Town of Lakeshore doesn’t want to see any more wind turbines erected within its municipality. It passed a moratorium this week that will be sent to the provincial government, as it’s seen 110 turbines go up since 2009.
Mayor Tom Bain says the agricultural areas are starting to be saturated and they’re starting to intrude on residential land and the shores of Lake St. Clair. “During the recent election campaign, all of the candidates heard from the residents that they’ve really had enough of the wind turbines and were opposed to them.” Read article
