    Ian Hanna v. Ontario – Legal Action update

    As many are aware, in October 2009, with the support of a great many people, a major legal challenge was launched under my name to the Green Energy Act – specifically to the parts that deal with siting and setbacks of Industrial Wind Turbines (IWTs) in relation to people’s homes. This “Application for Judicial Review” seeks to have IWT development close to people placed on hold across Ontario until independent, epidemiological studies are completed to determine safe setbacks from places . . .

Premier Dalton McGuinty asked the Minister to step in when the Environment Minister declared a conflict-of-interest on May 29, 2008. Controversy over the Wolfe Island Wind Project centres on the location of a handful of the 86-wind turbines that Canadian Renewable Energy Corporation hopes to build on the island later this year. The northwest part of Wolfe Island contains designated Important Bird . . .

    Edward D. Cerra of Dillenbeck Road was kind enough to provide the following summary of the May 22 public hearing in Prattsburgh concerning condemnation proceedings against the remaining property owners who have resisted signing easements for Windfarm Prattsburgh. Owing to the large attendance, the meeting was held at the town fire hall, which was full to near capacity. After a recap by First Wind [UPC] on the proposed location and properties involved, residents and owners were allowed three minutes each . . .

    Buffalo, N.Y., stockpile discovered

    The photos below were taken on one of our recent boating excursions in the Buffalo area. We came around a bend in an old canal in the downtown area and there they were. We couldn’t believe our eyes. Don’t know who’s stocking up or where they’re going. Only know that the Eagle project is the only game in town (or within a 100 mile radius) and their turbines are going directly on site. Also saw a tower section being delivered . . .
