Reader relates to wind struggle  

Credit:  www.mykawartha.com 16 December 2010 ~~

Re: Manvers Family feels caught in wind storm. Somewhat like the Irwins, we moved to a small farm in Pontypool five years ago, confident that its location in the Oak Ridges Moraine (ORM) would protect us from the unwanted wind turbine developments springing up in rural areas all over Ontario.

Little did we know that the McGuinty Liberals might make laws to suit their own purposes, regardless of the impact on citizens.

By even considering turbines here, they are backtracking on the ORM. It’s dishonest and a gross betrayal, for what? An unreliable energy source with, according to Mayor Mitch Twolan, no permanent jobs, lowered property values, minimal economic impact and no boost to tourism, long with no consultation, no say, no choice. If the province permits 45-storey wind turbines in their “protected” Oak Ridges Moraine, no rural area is safe.
