Perth County not willing to host turbines  

Credit:  By Shelley Miller-Cameron on September 13, 2013 | blackburnnews.com ~~

The ‘Not A Willing Host’ for industrial wind turbines stance is now unanimous in Perth County. County Council is throwing its formal support behind the four lower-tier municipalities that have already made that declaration.

Warden Vince Judge applauds the Province’s apparent desire to limit the projects to willing communities.

Judge suggests new projects do not appear to be moving through the process very fast but is concerned the Province is not looking at others very closely.

He is pleased Perth County and its member municipalities have declared themselves ‘Not A Willing Host’ for industrial wind turbines and hopeful the unified message will make a difference. He admits it may have little impact on existing plans including a proposed wind turbine development involving properties in North Perth and neighbouring Perth East.

According to a Perth County staff report, about 64 municipalities across Ontario have now passed ‘Not A Willing Host’ resolutions.
