Goderich court hears turbine charter challenge

A judge has reserved his decision until an unspecified date in a case involving a Goderich area couple and wind turbines.

Shawn and Trish Drennan were back in Goderich court today.

Shawn Drennan explains they’re arguing for their right to pursue their claim that the K2 Wind Energy project violates their rights under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms by causing harm to them.

Drennan adds that same claim was denied by Divisional Court and in an environmental review hearing because the K2 project wasn’t operating at that time, so their claim was only something that could happen in the future.

Drennan says the game has changed now because the project is operating and it has caused the harm he said it would.

Judge R. Raikes pointed out that a private company can’t be liable for a Charter violation, but Drennan countered saying they were working under a contract with the government so that makes them liable.
