Online petition growing against turbines  

Credit:  Over 11 hundred people sign petition against WPD Canada plan near Collingwood | By Catherine Thompson | Bayshore Broadcasting | June 14, 2016 | www.bayshorebroadcasting.ca ~~

(Colllingwood) – There are no hearing dates this week for the appeal of the approved wind turbines near Stayner as originally scheduled, but the fight does continue.

Betty Schneider is the one of the people appealing the approval by the government of WPD Canada’s plans for eight turbines.

She has also played a big part in getting signatures on a petition.

Schneider tells us there are well over a thousand signatures and they are hoping for more.

The petition is set up online at change.org and you search Fund and Fight The Collingwood Airport Turbines.

Betty Schneider, along with neighbour Chuck Magwood, and several other nearby residents have been fighting these plans for six and a half years.

Magwood tells us he will have turbine 7 near his property and he says he is living with so many unknowns. He is concerned about his health, but also the environment and the negative effect the turbines could have on the endangered Little Brown Bat.

He adds there are many bats in the area including on his own property.
