Brockton Council supports municipal turbine protest

[…] wind turbines until further studies are completed on adverse effects the massive structures can have.
The resolution, in support of a motion passed by Arran-Elderslie Council, seeks an immediate one-year moratorium with yearly extensions as required on construction of industrial turbines in Ontario.
They want to see studies on health impacts and proper residential setbacks, the reinstitution of planning authority to municipalities, and whether or not the Green Energy Act actually created jobs.
Brockton Coun. Anne-Louise Gibbons sits on the Inter-Municipal Wind Turbines Working Group.
“This is the first official step this municipality has taken against wind turbines,” she said after the resolution was passed.
The original motion forwarded by Arran-Elderslie included a clause that would have supporting municipalities walk out on the premier’s speech at the ROMA/OGRA 2012 Conference on?Feb. 26,, “in a show of solidarity to once again demonstrate to our provincial government our frustration, anger and disappointment over their complete and total mishandling of the Green Energy Act and Industrial Wind Turbines in particular.” But Brockton councillors thought that would be rude.
The resolution passed by Brockton Council excluded that caveat.
