Big rally / social event in Milford on Sat, May 26, 3 to 6 pm
CCSAGE announces “This is NOT a White Pine” Rally
CCSAGE invites you to a rally launching our “Naturally Green” and “Turbine-Free County” campaign.
The May 26th rally (next weekend) in Milford will be a social event with food and music. It will showcase our opposition to plans to install 38 industrial wind turbines (IWTs) in South Marysburgh and Athol. The rally is also a non-confrontational community gathering for everyone who loves the whole County just as it is—a healthy, safe, rural environment.
Now is not the time to be silent and invisible while Gilead Power awaits the Ministry of Environment’s approval to commence construction at Ostrander Point, and while wpd Canada (a subsidiary of wpd AG, Germany) prepares for a final open house before submitting its own approval application this fall. County residents must show that we value the South Shore Important Bird Area as much as do Nature Canada, Ontario Nature, and the National Audubon Society. We must show wpd that its “White Pines” project is an industrial violation of the County’s human and natural heritage.
The CCSAGE rally will provide the latest real information on how these two wind energy projects would harm the County that you know and love. An IWT “is NOT a White Pine!”
Please help keep the pressure on Gilead, wpd, and the Ontario government. You can drop by anytime to enjoy the entertainment, ask questions, meet your neighbours, and GET A SIGN FOR YOUR LAWN.
