Public in the dark about wind turbine projects: Sault MP  

Credit:  By FRANK DOBROVNIK, THE SAULT STAR, www.thesudburystar.com 2 September 2010 ~~

A growing chorus of critics says the provincial government needs to be more up front about proposals for wind energy projects across Ontario.

Sault Ste. Marie MP Tony Martin will hold a press conference Friday calling for a public hearing into plans for wind turbines that could one day be planted in Lake Superior. Martin was contacted by a group of area residents last month about windmills rumoured for Alona Bay, and wrote to the local Ministry of Natural Resources office with their inquiries. What he heard back last Thursday made him “apoplectic,” he says.

“It’s quite alarming,” he said. “It blew me away that they are actually thinking of putting these things out on the water. What impact will that have on the lake? We have no idea until we do some significant research.”
