Jane Wilson goes after MOECC Minister Ballard

Jane Wilson, President of Wind Concerns Ontario, has initiated a private prosecution of the Hon. Chris Ballard, with a hearing scheduled in Toronto on Thursday, May 17. She would benefit by your attendance at the hearing.

Jane alleges that the Minister has violated the Environmental Protection Act by not taking action on thousands of noise complaints relating to wind turbines. Here is WCO’s news release: http://www.windconcernsontario.ca/

Jane has convinced a Justice of the Peace to issue a summons, in conjunction with the Provincial Offences Act, compelling the Minister to appear in court on Thursday, May 17 to respond to the evidence that she will submit. She is being represented by a lawyer in Eric Gillespie’s office. Lawyers for MOECC will be out in force.

It would be very helpful to Jane if some of us were to attend the hearing to support her brave initiative. The hearing will be at the Toronto East Court, 1350 Markham Road (just south of the 401), on Thursday, May 17 at 9:00 am.
