Tuesday, September 5th from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.
at Milford Town Hall, 3076 County Road 10, Milford
South Marysburgh Councillor Steve Ferguson invites you to attend a town hall meeting to provide an update to the public about the wpd White Pines wind project.
On July 31, wpd served notice to the Municipality of Prince Edward that it intends to begin construction of the 9-turbine White Pines wind project on Sunday, September 10th. On August 23rd, wpd sent a letter to the municipality and submitted permit applications related to the construction work. The third paragraph of the letter is as follows:
“As you may know, in the past, attempts by a municipality to obstruct a provincially approved REA have been met with strong condemnation by the courts. wpd has successfully enforced its rights pursuant to its REA and has recovered its legal costs at both the Divisional Court and Court of Appeal (wpd Sumac Ridge Wind Incorporated v. Kawartha Lakes (City), 2015 ONSC 4164; and wpd Sumac Ridge Wind Incorporated v. Kawartha Lakes (City), 2016 ONCA 496).”
(The entire letter may be viewed on Steve Ferguson’s ward facebook page – click HERE)
This meeting is to provide information about the project and to answer questions about the project’s implications to Milford and the surrounding area.
Mayor Robert Quaiff, members of municipal staff, and others will be attending to answer questions. Please plan to attend!
And please help spread the word by circulating this message as you see fit!
