McNaughton on Turbines
The decision to add wind farms should rest in the hands of the municipality, not the province. That’s what Tory Opposition leader for Lambton-Kent-Middlesex Monte McNaughton told myFM during a visit to Strathroy Friday. McNaughton says currently because of the Green Energy Act even though local councils would like to oppose wind turbine development in their communities, they aren’t able to.
Many in local rural communities such as Adelaide-Metcalfe and nearby Chatham-Kent have been attempting to reverse decisions set by the Ontario government for wind farms in their backyards.
