Ontario Government Invites Wind Industry in to “KILL OUR WILDLIFE”!!!!

Posted: December 21, 2012 in Uncategorized

This one particular decision that Minister of Environment of Ontario, Jim Bradley has just approved may be the ultimate “kick in the face” for Ontario wildlife lovers!

Since when did the Ministry of Environment have in their mandate to KILL THE ENVIRONMENT!

Don’t even mention this man along with all his predecessors have thrown human beings under the “investment bus of Wind” but this one single project has literally invaded a sanctuary for migration of birds that come from all over the world to rest, breed and multiply.

Does Jim Bradley strike anyone with the “smarts” to even recognize a bird let alone KNOW what an Important Bird Area is.? Apparently not. We all know that politicians aren’t the sharpest knives in the drawer and their main claim to fame is a good memory for speech making and the ability to not appear stupid or misinformed even though they usually are!

The following quick posts may just underline the massive ignorance and almost criminal intent being acted out in this latest Green Energy Scam announcement!

‘Reprehensible’

‘Reprehensible”

Reaction pours in over decision to approve Ostrander Point industry wind factory .

Reaction has been swift and furious to the announcement that Ontario’s Ministry of Environment approved the development of a nine-turbine industrial wind factory on Crown Land at Ostrander Point in South Marysburgh.

In approving this project the Ministry has decided to allow the developer Gilead Power to kill, harm, and harass two endangered species (Blanding’s Turtle and Whippoorwill) which inhabit the piece of property.

Nature Canada issued a statement saying it is dismayed by Minister Bradley’s decision to approve a wind energy project on publicly owned Crown land within one of the most significant areas of bird and bat migration in Ontario.

“Ostrander Point is in the heart of the globally significant Prince Edward County South Shore Important Bird Area, and is well-known for its significance to migrating and breeding birds,” said Ted Cheskey, bird conservation manager for Nature Canada. “A wind energy plant at this location poses a high and permanent risk to birds and other animals, plant life, animal life and the natural environment. It is particularly shocking that an announcement of this significance would be made as Ontarians turn their attention to family and friends for the holidays. The public now has 15 days during this holiday period to submit a formal request for appeal.

MPP Todd Smith calls the ministry of environment “a disgrace”.

Grief and disbelief: Ontario approves wind power project at Ostrander Point

 

 December 21, 2012
The Ontario government announced yesterday that the 22.5-megawatt wind power generation project at Ostrander Point in Prince Edward County has received a Renewable Energy Approval from the Ministry of the Environment.

More than 1,500 people and organizations commented on the project, and numerous plebiscites in Prince Edward County have indicated that local residents are not in favour of the project. MPP Todd Smith greeted the announcement with this statement: “Honesty and transparency have never been high on this government’s priority list. The Environmental Commissioner just two months ago criticized the government for engaging in exactly this kind of behaviour. The Ministry of Environment has just said that it’s willing to ignore the advice of its own Environmental Commissioner. It also shows a lack of respect for the residents and municipal government of Prince Edward County.”

Wind Concerns Ontario has spoken out against the project and filed a lengthy comment with the Ministry of the Environment. “Our reaction today is one of grief and disbelief,” says WCO president Jane Wilson. “The hypocrisy of this provincial government is absolutely stunning. The timing of the approval announcement is another slap in the face for rural Ontario—the government is saying, we don’t care what you want, we’re not listening to your wishes, we’re helping big business push this through.”
