Saskatchewan residents push courts for changes to $60 M wind farm

REGINA – Landowners in southeastern Saskatchewan have turned to the courts to press for significant changes to a $60-million wind farm project.

“We think we’re going to be successful in preventing them from building this close to people’s houses,” said Brad Jamieson, the Saskatoon lawyer representing some area residents who recently filed a class-action lawsuit.

His clients are concerned by the proximity of the turbines to be erected under the Red Lily Wind Farm Project, a 25-megawatt wind farm that will be located about five kilometres west of Moosomin, Sask.

Jamieson said his clients want the turbines located 2,000 metres from any home, up from the currently planned 550-metre distance.

An interim court order was made last week bringing “all construction-related activity” to a halt pending the outcome of an injunction application.

The wind farm was expected to be operational by late this year or early next year.
