Demonstrators greet Premier  

Credit:  Written by Dave Dentinger, News Director – Sarnia | May 31st, 2013 | blackburnnews.com ~~

The weather was warm but not the reception as an Ontario Premier visited Sarnia for the first time since 2007….

Kathleen Wynne was met by anti-wind turbine and Sarnia Jail protesters as she arrived for the opening of a Community Garden at Goodwill Industries at Wellington and Murphy.

The new Liberal Premier’s first order of business was an interview with Sue Storr on CHOK’s The Talk Show at 9 this morning.

She said the province’s new green energy rules are not necessarily retroactive with 22 projects already approved, many of which are in the Lambton-Middlesex area…

Developers of large energy projects will now have to work with municipalities before they can ask for approval from the Ontario Power Authority.

The Premier was also asked about spiralling hydro costs acting as a deterrent to potential investment in the area by companies like Nova Chemicals.

Premier Wynne’s itinerary also included the grand opening of a 68 bed expansion at Sarnia’s Vision Nursing Home. She then left for Mackinac Island Michigan for the welcome session of the Meeting of the Great Lakes Governors and Premiers.
