The Citizen Action Photo Op that was held today at Bond Road and County Road 10 was a great success with 40 to 50 people involved. The joint citizen action only delayed the delivery of large wind turbine parts for a short period for the Photo Op. All local media was present. The objective was to demonstrate County citizen anger and dismay towards the IESO for issuing a Notice to Proceed (NTP) to wpd White Pines Wind Inc. after the election campaign was underway.
objections to the IESO approving the White Pines Notice to Proceed (NTP) application after the election was underway and contrary to government policy. The intent was not to halt the project but rather to send a clear and message to the Ontario Legislature of our dismay and objection. The group delayed the delivery convoy of large wind turbine parts for a short period for the photo op. The organizers clearly achieved their objective to send a strong message to Queen’s Park.
