Two important events in the County this week
Please plan to attend one or both of two important events happening this week:
Down Wind documentary on Thursday, July 10, APPEC
A showing of the new documentary, Down Wind, at the Regent Theatre, 7 pm, $10 admission at the door. Proceeds to help pay APPEC’s legal bills, past and future. An excellent overview of the fallout from wind energy development in western Ontario, 100% relevant to the County. Rebecca Thompson, Sun News Network contributor and host of this documentary, will be on hand to introduce the film.
Gillan Richards of SOAR (Save Ontario’s Algoma Region) describes Down Wind as a film “that exposes how the lights of liberty went out for Ontario citizens deeply opposed to wind turbine projects. It tells the stories of communities torn apart, and the rural warriors now fighting for their rights, health and happiness. . .The film tells the ugly truth about lucrative big wind power contracts, skyrocketing electricity prices, and the political connections behind it all. It uncovers the skeptical sales pitch that wind turbines are good for the air and won’t impact health. And it provides a glimmer of hope that this nightmare can be overcome with fair-minded solutions.”
Turtle Concert on Sunday, July 13, PECFN
THE major single event on the County’s summer entertainment calendar. Picton United Church, 2:30 pm, admission $20 at the door or in advance at www.saveostranderpoint.org. Proceeds to support PECFN’s continuing legal battle to save Ostrander Point and Blanding’s turtle. An afternoon of County-grown music, featuring a wide variety of local musicians covering blues, Celtic, folk, jazz and rock & roll.
