As a Toronto urbanite who grew up on a farm in rural Ontario, and who identifies with both city and country life, I became aware, in March 2013, of a battle that rural residents of Ontario had been waging for over five years against the scourge of towering industrial wind factories that have been forced on them by the Ontario Liberal government.
I have no political affiliation or axe to grind. I expect government, no matter which political party is heading it, to work in the best interests and welfare of the people it is mandated to serve. I believe it has done the opposite with respect to the Ontario Green Energy Act and the implementation of its green energy policies as they relate to wind power.
The wind power of today is a proven economic shell game, a dangerous health hazard for people, lethal for birds and bats, and a destructive blight on the beautiful Ontario landscape. The government appears to know this but persists nonetheless in enabling mega energy companies only too happy to take advantage of the Green Energy Act’s special protections, hugely lucrative taxpayer-funded government subsidies and unprecedented, legislated infringements on the democratic rights of municipalities and their residents.
