County residents: We need you at the big protest rally on Tue, Apr 3
Here’s an update on plans for County participation in the big Wind Concerns Ontario protest rally at the Feed-in Trough (err, Tariff) Forum in Toronto next Tue, Apr 3. Simply put, we need more County residents to join us for this rally.
CCSAGE has organized comfortable bus transportation to and from the rally. At this point, we have sold two-thirds of the seats at $23.00 per ticket round trip. But we need to fill the bus to cover the rental cost and especially to ensure the County’s visibility at the rally. If you’re concerned about the damage that wind turbines will inflict on the County and have been wondering what you can do to help, this is your opportunity.
The bus will depart from the Metro store in Picton at 8:00 am and make a pickup at the Wellington Community Centre at 8:30. Following the rally, the bus will depart Toronto at 2:30 and arrive back in Wellington at 5:00 and Picton at 5:30.
The good news is that this will be a fun day! Lots of interesting people on the bus and a rousing rally with hundreds of highly motivated folks from across the province. It promises to be an uplifting experience for everyone who participates.
If you’re willing to step up and be part of the solution, please email Duncan Fischer (firstname.lastname@example.org ) no later than Fri, Mar 30.
If you are planning to attend but have decided to drive, or if you just can’t get away on Tuesday, please consider contributing the cost of one or two tickets ($23.00 or $46.00) to help make sure that we’ll be able to confirm the rental. But we really want you to join us on the bus.
