Little town in Ontario fights for “Democracy”! …. Industry and Government says: “Oh NO you WON’T”!

Posted: December 18, 2012 in Uncategorized

Nice! A really nice Corporate neighbour!………..NOT!

Just like all other Wind Companies that have signed onto Dalton McGuinty’s anti democratic, destructive money sucking parasitic Green Energy Scam, this one is no different than the rest. “Don’t try and stop us or we will sue your ass off!”

That’s what Ontario has been reduced to nowadays. A feeding frenzy for “green investors” that have basically nowhere else in the world to ruin and pollute but here!

Needless to say this is all “business” on Wainfleet Wind’s part but there is so much more to this story. People’s homes are being ruined, abandoned, their health compromised and people’s lives are also being totally ruined in what used to be “the place to live and the place to grow………….Onatriariarioooooo!”

Ontarians not only look at their own Government leaders as the culprits here but without the companies that have thrown all moral and honourable rules out the window when wheeling and dealing their fake Wind propaganda, this would never have gone this far down the toilet!

Wainfleet Council has shown courage, strength and a commitment to do what they were elected to do. REPRESENT THE PEOPLE!

For that they are being SUED!

ST. CATHARINES  – The mayor of Wainfleet said taking on wind energy companies is worth the fight.

After passing a bylaw in the spring overruling the province’s rule for how close to houses wind turbines can be built, the township was promptly sued by a wind developer.

On Tuesday, Mayor April Jeffs made a deposition in St. Catharines in the lawsuit against her town by Wainfleet Wind Energy, which wants to build five wind turbines on land leased to it by private landowners.

Local developer Tom Rankin, a partner in Wainfleet Wind Energy, said while the lawsuit is to get the bylaw overturned, he wouldn’t rule out suing for financial damages.

“If our project is delayed because of this, we probably will go after damages,” Rankin said.

The lawsuit states Wainfleet bylaw 013-2012, which requires a setback of 2,000 metres from a house to a wind turbine (rather than the provincially mandated 550 metres), goes beyond the powers of the township.

Wainfleet staff also told council it had no authority to pass the bylaw because the province’s Green Energy Act supersedes local decision-making.

But Jeffs said someone had to take a stance.

“We heard a lot from residents who are fearful of the health effects and property devaluation,” she said. “Our council has never looked back and we’ve never second-guessed it. We have support from our and other communities.”

The lawsuit is expected to head to court in February, but Wainfleet Wind Energy is moving forward in project planning.
