Higgins Mountain 

Just got home from a meeting at the Wentworth Fire Hall where there was a presentation, to about 40 people, about the Higgins Mountain project. The presentation was the same as what was recently given to the Folly Lake Residents Association (or similar named group) by one of the long time seasonal residents. He made a very good job of presenting the project, process, pros and cons in as balanced a manner as one could expect.

It would seem the folk of Wentworth/Westchester/Folly Lake are not of such fulsome praise of this project as we have been led to believe.

Again, the cry is all for wind power, but the one of the main concerns is of “siting”. The turbines for this project are not neatly tucked away out of sight as we have been told, but march along the top of the ridge and sometimes quite close to Highway 4.

Modeling of shadow flicker for Ski Wentworth present a (potentially dangerous) degree of flicker.

The local people asked many intelligent questions. There was a rep from CBCL who answered many questions. MLAs Murray Scott and Karen Casey were there, as was Councilor Kathy Redmond, a councilor from Colchester County, reps from CREDA and other local Associations (for once I didn’t have my note book with me – sorry). No media.

I came home to an e-mail claiming we should hear from NSPI tomorrow.
