Rally will protest wind project and Green Energy Act

Prince Edward County residents will rally to voice opposition to the wpd White Pines Wind Project’s nine 150m (500-foot) industrial wind turbines planned for in and around Milford in South Marysburgh.

Supported by the Prince Edward Field Naturalists, Alliance for the Protection of Prince Edward County and County Coalition for Safe and Appropriate Energy, the Sunday, Oct. 15 rally consists of a march followed by an information session at the Regent Theatre in Picton.

“Our hope is that this rally will motivate the government to cancel this project once and for all,” said Les Stanfield, logistics co-ordinator for the rally. “We want people to be creative in preparing for the rally through floats, banners or placards that personalize their message to wpd and Queen’s Park.”

“The County is an unwilling host to industrial wind turbine projects that disrupt the lives and livelihoods of County residents; that destroy the County’s historic landscapes; and that cause irreparable harm to the County’s wildlife and natural environment,” he added.

Those wanting to participate in the march can gather at the end of Cold Storage Road for departure at 1 p.m. or join the march at any point on the route along Main Street to the Regent Theatre.

At 2 p.m. residents are invited to take part in an information session at the Regent Theatre. County residents, local politicians, business people and experts are to provide impact statements, updates and answer questions about topics including anticipated personal impacts; loss of land owner and municipal rights because of the Green Energy Act; human health effects; destruction of heritage, tourism and endangered species; and other concerns.

“We hope every single person who has expressed their concern about this wind energy project will come out and not only show support for the residents of South Marysburgh, but also to express their strong opposition to the government legislation that allowed it to happen,” said Steve Ferguson, councillor for South Marysburgh, who has already hosted two well-attended Town Hall meetings in the hamlet. “All residents of Prince Edward County need to fully understand the implications of the White Pines project.”
