Re: Time for Ontario to reform campaign financing, Oct. 8.
We were dismayed to see mention of Wind Concerns Ontario, a coalition of individuals and community groups concerned about the negative impacts of industrial-scale wind-power generation projects on our communities, on the natural environment, on human health and the economy, mentioned in the Citizen editorial on election financing.
Wind Concerns Ontario is an organization of volunteers that exists solely on donations: we have no budget whatsoever for political campaigns. Our work in the 2011 Ontario election was simply to bring awareness of wind turbine issues to the campaigns in those ridings being affected by windpower projects, and we were successful in doing that, as the editorial points out.
