If you intend to go by bus, please email Duncan Fischer (drfischer@sympatico.ca) no later than noon on March 27.

Here is WCO’s notice of the rally:

Massive Protest Planned by Rural Ontario Underway

The Wind Industry Barons are blowing into Toronto for the Ontario Feed In Tariff Forum April 3 & 4th  at the Metro Convention Center, 255 Front Street West.

Protest Date – Tuesday, April 3rd

Time – gather at 11:30

Speakers – 12:00

Protest March- 12:30

Place – Simcoe Park on Front Street, beside CBC building and opposite Metro Toronto Convention Centre

The Ontario Federation of Agriculture and Christian Farmers Association have joined the call for a moratorium on further wind development.   It’s time for Dalton to stop misleading the public. Please mark your calendars, and inform your neighbours.  It is time to stand up for Rural Ontario in the thousands!

Start thinking about messages & slogans for your signs and be creative.  Identify which part of Ontario you are from and bring a large map of turbine placements in your area.  Arrange a bus or use public transit, subways, GO trains to Union Station.  Let’s bring our message to Dalton’s Liberals!  See you there.

From the main lobby of Union Station (look for signs to railway and GOTrain station to get to main lobby), exit at Front Street, go west (left) on Front St. past York St. and Lower Simcoe St.  Simcoe Park is about 300 meters further west right next to the CBC building on the north side of Front St.

    I am completely against the wind turbines anywhere in Prince Edward County, regardless of set back requirements or metting other minimum requirements. I feel it is extremely shortsighted of the McGuinty government, when the voice of the people is clear that they are 76% against the proposed wind turbine projects in the County.
    I can not attend the meeting this evening in the county but will attend the Toronto protest event.
