Help stop wpd’s White Pines project

Dear County Resident,

Wpd Canada is pushing for quick approval of its 29 wind turbines, each 48 stories tall, to be spread over much of  South Marysburgh and eastern Athol.  All that stands in the way is County residents — that’s you and me.  Here are two ways that you can push back.

1. Let them have it (your opinion) at wpd’s final open house.  It’s on Thursday, August 30, 2012 at Prince Edward Collegiate Institute, 41 Barker Street, Picton starting at 5:30 pm.  We expect a large crowd.  See next week’s Gazette and Times  for details.

2. Let them have it in writing.  Wpd must respond to all submissions and include them in its application to MOE.  We’re hoping for hundreds of contributions.  See below for sample letters in MS Word format, which you can (and should) revise to reflect your particular views.

  1. Moratorium re health letter
  2. Natural environment letter
  3. 90% said NO letter
  4. Minimal ecoomic benefits letter
  5. Higher electricity prices letter
  6. Multiple issues letter

Note: If you don’t have Microsoft Word, you can print out a package of the letters in PDF format and add your information by hand.

Complete as many letters as are important to you  and send them to wpd Canada by email / postal mail prior to August 30, or hand deliver them to wpd at the open house.  Send copies to Council and to CCSAGE.

  • Original to Ian MacRae, President, wpd Canada: or 2233 Argentia Road, Suite 102, Mississauga, L5N 2X7.
  • Copy to PEC Council: or 332 Main St, Picton, K0K 2T0.
  • Copy to CCSAGE: or Box 173, Milford, K0K 2P0 or hand to a CCSAGE representative at the wpd meeting.

Thank you in advance for becoming part of the solution.

  1. The “County” should be “ground zero” for this “War against Wind”! Since the very beginning of the mass destruction of Ontario by McGuinty’s anti-democratic Green Energy Act, Prince Edward County has been the “bullseye” for targeting these useless machines by unscrupulous politicians and Municipal Councillors!.
    One of the most fertile and productive areas in Ontario that bases most of their income from Growing food and tourism, this is nothing more than a land grab and redistribution of wealth by a Gang Green that shouldn’t be allowed to even speak publicly to the good Citizens of this once great Province!
