Turbine plans full of hot air

Re: Liberals in panic mode, opinion column, by Chris Vander Doelen, Nov. 20.

Thank you, Chris Vander Doelen, for finally exposing the truth about the so-called economic benefits of wind turbines. We are, and will continue, to “pay through the nose” for these monstrosities that now pepper our once beautiful Essex County landscape.

Let’s face facts, people. We aren’t going to save a dime. It has been a scam from the beginning.

Shame on you, Dalton McGuinty, and your cronies for promising the creation of jobs in an area so desperately in need of full-time, viable employment.

Shame on you for hiding behind the guise of “green energy” when, in reality, the only ones who will benefit financially are the corporations who have been given huge incentives to build the darn things.

Let’s fast forward a few years from now. McGuinty and his cronies will be collecting their substantial pensions, snug and cosy at their retirement homes nowhere near a wind turbine. Incentives for the production of turbines now dried up, these companies will be long gone.

The county will be marred with rusted out non-functioning turbines and we, the taxpayer, will be in our homes wrapped in blankets unable to afford the cost of heating.

Our children will be asking, “How could you let this happen?” Indeed, how did we?

MARY ANNE ADAM, Kingsville
