Mayor requested to ask new premier to reconsider turbines  

Credit:  Feb 11, 2013 | countylive.ca ~~

At Tuesday night’s council meeting, Mayor Peter Mertens, will be requested, on behalf of council, to write Ontario’s new premier Kathleen Wynne to reconsider the approval of the industrial wind turbine project at Ostrander Point in Prince Edward County.

The request is to be based on the fact that Wynne has indicated that the province needs to re-evaluate the siting criteria of industrial wind turbines and the project is in a designated, globally significant Important Bird Area and nationally significant under the threatened species category.

Wynne was sworn in Monday as Ontario’s 25th premier. She will also serve as Minister of Agriculture Food and Rural Affairs for a year.

“Rural Ontario is more than just agriculture, and we’re going to renew our government’s focus by incorporating a rural perspective on everything from energy policy and economic development to health care and education.”
