‘I just refuse to move’: Codroy Valley outfitter says he’s not interested in buyout

Some say World Energy GH2’s proposed wind farm will be the greatest thing to ever happen in the Codroy Valley, but Art Ryan is not convinced of that. Ryan lives in Searston and is the owner of Mountain Top Outfitters. He’s been in the outfitting business pretty much all his life, but said that could end if the wind farm goes ahead. “It’s a terrible thing,” said Ryan. He has camps located in three big-game management areas, and the two . . . Complete story »

I am writing in response to a recent article by birding columnist Bruce Mactavish, “Surprise bird spottings during autumn trip to Codroy Valley area.” I’ve been following the development of the World Energy GH2 project on the west coast of Newfoundland with great concern since its announcement in July 2022. The second proposed wind turbine site at the Anguille mountains in the Codroy Valley was a late addition to the project. The people there – and around the province – are only . . . Complete story »

Why the rush on wind energy proposal?

A recent edition of the Weekend Telegram reported on a forum that was convened to discuss the current state of review of the GH2 concept for two massive wind energy farms in southwestern Newfoundland (‘It’s so disheartening’: World Energy project a done deal, Memorial University professor speculates).

Bring on the next boondoggle in N.L. with World Energy GH2

As a taxpayer in this province, I find the environmental assessment published by World Energy GH2 – Project Nujio’qonik on Aug. 22, 2023 very alarming. It alarms me because it clearly states that flora, fauna, and environment will be negatively affected by the construction and operation of this mega-project. It only states that these negative effects will be “mitigated.” How? It doesn’t say. It has completely failed to identify the negative effects of the project on the 4,600 people who . . .

Five Mi’kmaw chiefs in southwestern Newfoundland are seeking Indigenous mediation to try and resolve conflicts that have arisen from the wind energy proposal for the Port au Port Peninsula.
