Credit:  April 23, 2013 | countylive.ca ~~

Councillor Robert Quaiff will seek support at tonight’s Prince Edward County council meeting to declare “that Prince Edward County is ‘Not a Willing Host’ for Wind Turbine Development.”

About 90 municipalities across the province have passed, or are reviewing, such resolutions.

The resolution states:
WHEREAS the Premier of Ontario has recently conveyed the Government’s desire to limit Industrial Wind Turbine (IWT) Projects to communities that are willing hosts;

AND WHEREAS Council for the Corporation of the County of Prince Edward has received a clear message from its residents that they are not willing to host to IWT’S in Prince Edward County;

AND WHEREAS Council for the Corporation of the County of Prince Edward has taken a consistent position on the issue to IWT’s;

NOW THEREFORE be it resolved that the Council for the Corporation of the County of Prince Edward applauds the position taken by the Premier and the Government;

AND THAT based on the consistent position of Council for the Corporation of the County of Prince Edward and the input received from the community regarding IWT’s, the Province of Ontario and specifically the Ministry of Environment be now advised that the Corporation of the County of Prince Edward is not a ‘willing host’ for IWT’s;

AND THAT this resolution be circulated to Premier Kathleen Wynne, as well as to the Minister of Environment, Minister of Energy, Minister of Rural Affairs.

Council will also review a letter from the Township of Wainfleet to the premier and decide on endorsing recommended ‘Changes to Site Rules for Energy Projects’; and will review support to that township’s resolution as it relates to not being a ‘Willing Host’ for Industrial Wind Turbines.
