A petition with more than 1,200 signatures was dropped off at city hall Friday concerning the proposed Big Thunder Wind Park.
The Nor’Wester Mountain Escarpment Protection Committee brought the petition to Mayor Lynn Peterson’s office.
Committee president Irene Bond said she hopes the 1,275 names on the petition will prove to city officials that the opponents are not just a “small, loud group of citizens,” but rather, a large percentage of city ratepayers.
Copies of the petition have also gone to the developer, Horizon Wind Inc., and the Ontario Ministry of the Environment.
