(Prince Edward-Hastings) – The new Member of Provincial Parliament for Prince Edward-Hastings has started his legislative work by writing Natural Resources Minister Michael Gravelle with regard to the proposed Industrial Wind Farm at Ostrander Point in Prince Edward County.
During the campaign, the proposed Industrial Wind Farm was a major issue in Prince Edward County and was the focus of many campaign events including a press conference by a former Queen’s Counsel outlining the position of the South Shore Conservancy.
“Since my office has opened, the number one topic of correspondence with constituents in the riding has been the proposed Wind Farm in Prince
Edward County.” Smith stated. “The people of Prince Edward County feel like their right to have their voice heard is being taken away. They want
Queen’s Park to know that they object to having these wind turbines forced on them without the approval of their local government.”
In the letter, Smith congratulated Minister Gravelle on his new portfolio and added that he hoped to have the chance to express the feelings of his constituents in Prince Edward County on this issue.
