WPD Canada turns off wind turbine project  

Credit:  By Kevin Bernard | Bayshore Broadcasting | September 18, 2017 | www.bayshorebroadcasting.ca ~~

A big win for opponents of Giant wind turbines in Ontario.

The appeal period has run out, and WPD Canada has decided it will NOT proceed with the Fairview Wind Project in Clearview township.

Last month, approval for the wind turbines was revoked, but the company had until September 16th to file an appeal.

The Environmental Review Tribunal revoked the previous Renewable Energy Approval, saying WPD Canada’s plans for 8 turbines just outside Stayner would pose serious harm to human health with the turbines in the flight path of two nearby airports.

When the ERT ruling came down in mid-August, Opponent Betty Schneider didn’t believe the company would go quietly into the night, so she wasn’t celebrating at that point.

Now, Schneider says she would like to fill up her old swimming pool with champagne and celebrate.

Schneider says she is numb, that the battle is finally over.

WPD Canada has been working on the plan for wind turbines in Clearview for roughly a decade.

Manager of Communications for WPD Canada, Kevin Surette tells Bayshore Broadcasting news in an email September 18th that the Board of Directors has decided not to proceed with the Fairview Project.

He declined to make any further comments.
