PECFN — Dinner and a movie at the Drake, Dec. 2
Prince Edward County Field Naturalists will be at the Appeal Court of Ontario on Dec 8-9 defending the Environmental Review Tribunal ruling that overturned the Ministry of the Environment’s approval of the Gilead wind turbine project at Ostrander Point. This is a precedent setting case that impacts the validity of the Environmental Review Tribunal, the Endangered Species Act and the Environmental Protection Act. Funds are still needed to defend the Tribunal ruling.
