MNR to limit wind farms?  

Credit:  By Jonathan Sher, The London Free Press, www.lfpress.com 19 August 2010 ~~

Ontario’s Natural Resources Ministry is considering constraints on offshore wind farms but it’s not clear the limits will appease a wave of protest from those living along Lake Huron.

The ministry published a draft policy this week that, if adopted, might exclude from development areas in the lake where there are:

– boating lanes
– core commercial fishing
– sensitive ecology
– important recreational uses
– cultural heritage
– natural-gas activity

There also may be limits on development in inland lakes and other water bodies.
