Mock gives serious message

Lucan contractor hopes his 11-metre tall replica will show people – and provincial officials – just how much of an eyesore these monstrosities will be in Lake Huron

LUCAN – Dave Barr gazes up at the silver column standing in his driveway.

“I’m sure I’m going to tick a few of my neighbours off,” says the Lucan contractor. “But that’s OK.”

Frankly, Barr is hoping to tick off more than just a few neighbours.

Because when he’s finished, that pillar will stand nearly 11 metres tall – about the height of an average telephone pole. It’ll feature three 2.4-metre long propellers, a blinking red light and a big sign bearing one simple word: No.

In a ballsy bid to protest the province’s proposal to erect wind turbines in Lake Huron near his cottage, and convince other residents that such a wind farm will be an ugly eyesore, Barr is building his own replica of a wind turbine.
