No to turbines on peninsula; South Bruce Peninsula Council approves resolution, doesn’t want wind farms in community

With a packed council chamber looking on, South Bruce Peninsula councillors did what was asked of them by a delegation against wind turbine development in the municipality.

Councillors passed a resolution on Tuesday afternoon – saying the citizens of the municipality do not want any wind turbine development.

South Bruce Peninsula is just the latest in a long list of communities who have passed similar resolutions against wind turbines.

Former councillor Ana Vukovic handed in several petitions with over 15 hundred names asking that any development be stopped.

There is talk that some wind farm developers are looking at building up to 275 turbines in the region.

The municipality can’t really stop the developments but indicating that they are against them will carry some weight with the province before giving any approval to developers.

Vukovic called on Premier Dalton McGuinty to build the turbines in the Toronto area or near his cottage if he’s so determined to develop wind power.

She says turbines in South Bruce Peninsula, along with transmission lines, will ruin the look and feel of the area and have an overwhelming effect on the economy of the region.

Councillor Marilyn Bowman agreed with the presentation and moved the motion to approve the resolution.

Bowman says she believes the people of the municipality are not in favour of wind turbine development.

The successful resolution will be sent to Queen’s Park.
