Haldimand Norfolk voters show displeasure after wind-turbine moratorium bill rejected  

Credit:  By John Crawford, cd989.com 9 March 2012 ~~

People in the public gallery at the Ontario Legislature–including some from Haldimand-Norfolk–turned their backs on the McGuinty government yesterday.


After the Liberals and New Democrats made sure a private member’s bill calling for a wind-turbine moratorium didn’t pass, spectators stood up and turned their back to the politicians.

The bill was proposed by Huron-Bruce MPP Lisa Thompson.

Outside of local protesters, there were others in the gallery from her riding as well as Amherst Island.

Local MPP Toby Barrett says on Twitter the move was ‘classy’, but ‘chilling’.

The proposed bill called for a moratorium on further wind-turbine development until third-party social, physical and economic health and environmental studies have been done.
