Farm group now supports moratorium on wind turbines  

Credit:  www.leamingtonpostandshopper.com 3 April 2012 ~~

A local farm organization, at the behest of its parent group, has changed its position on wind turbines.

Leamington council last week learned that the Essex County Federation of Agriculture is now in support of a moratorium on the turbines.

“We’re are now against – the new president (of the Ontario Federation of Agriculture) wants the moratorium,” said Councillor Larry Verbeke, a local federation member

. He agreed the position conflicts with the earlier stance of the county farm group.

The moratorium issue arose at the council meeting because of a letter from the municipality of Clarington seeking Leamington’s support for the proposal. Clarington says many other municipalities support the move, as well as the provincial farm organization.

Clarington’s letter indicates it wants to see the issue discussed by the Association of Municipalities of Ontario (AMO).

Leamington councillors did not support Clarington’s letter.
