Saugeen Shores unwilling to host wind turbines

They were opposed to it then, and are opposed to it now, so much so, they’re putting their thoughts on paper.

Saugeen Shores councillors made it very clear they do not want anymore wind turbine development within its municipality during Monday evening’s committee-of-the-whole meeting.

Premier Kathleen Wynne recently conveyed the Government’s desire to limit industrial wind turbine projects to communities that are willing hosts.

In response to this announcement, councillors unanimously voted in favour of preparing and sending a letter to Wynne, similar to one sent by the Township of Wainfleet, declaring the municipality is not a willing host.

Vice-deputy mayor Doug Gowanlock said given Saugeen Shores’ history regarding wind turbines, “the community is largely not in favour of them.”

“Certainly there are some people who would benefit, (but) there’s not a lot of them and it seems to (add) more and more negative affects and issues,” he said.

Gowanlock said it would be wise to send such a letter stating to the premier that Saugeen Shores is concerned, adding that “if the government means what they say, then perhaps that (they) should be aware that we’re concerned.”
