Shut it down

An open letter to the Ontario government: I am a resident of Crysler. My new view from my bedroom window is of one of the Nation Rise Wind Farm turbines. Can any of you honestly say this is OK? Who will guarantee that our health is not in jeopardy? Who will guarantee our well water will not be affected? Who will guarantee we won’t hear the swooshing of those enormous blades or be affected by infrasound? Who will guarantee our . . . Complete story »

After eight-month lull Nation Rise spinning again

JOHNSTOWN – With about five weeks to go in the estimated time it’ll take to transfer remaining turbine components from storage at Port of Johnstown to installation site in North Stormont, manufacturer Enercon has apologized in advance for any inconvenience to local motorists. Because the tower sections and blades are so large and cumbersome, the delivery process via specially adapted flatbeds can be disruptive. In a notice, area residents were informed that by the last week of October, the storage . . . Complete story »

North Stormont nixes fire suppression bylaw for turbines– for now

BERWICK – The majority of the North Stormont council voted in favour of receiving a report from its chief administrative officer (CAO) on Tuesday and in doing so, opted out of adopting a fire suppression bylaw for the Nation Rise Wind Farm project— for now. In his report, CAO Craig Calder told council he could not recommend a fire suppression bylaw, saying there isn’t enough evidence to warrant it. In addition, he said adopting one could lead to the bylaw being . . . Complete story »

Community editorial board: A debacle lies ahead under our current PM

What does the so-called green Nation Rise Wind Farm have in common with the up-coming so-called green budget from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau? Let’s start with Nation Rise. This is not about reducing pollution nor about saving bats. It’s not about “green.” The only green is a lot of money. The return on equity is 11 per cent, after taxes. That’s guaranteed for 20 years. That’s why Nation Rise easily bought off North Stormont with $6 million to stop their . . . Complete story »

Nation Rise Wind Farm granted approval to continue project

A renewable energy approval was reinstated for the Nation Rise Wind Farm. This comes after EDP Renewables, the owner of the project, asked the Ontario Supreme Court for a judicial review. Minister of Environment, Conservation and Parks Jeff Yurek had revoked the project’s REA in December, citing concerns over the potential impact on big brown bats, hoary bats and little brown bats – all on the Species at Risk Ontario List. The Nation Rise Wind Farm is largely situated in . . . Complete story »

The project will see the completion of 29 wind turbines in the northern section of the township. Its timeline has been marred with controversy, opponents to the project slowed down its approval as much as they could, then appealed it to the Environmental Review Tribunal, then asked Ontario Minister of Environment, Conservation and Parks . . .
