Zephyr Wind Appeal: PLEASE DONATE

 Zephyr Wind Appeal Donation Form

 This is my big plea of the year. Please do what you can to help- every bit that you can give is very much appreciated.

As you may have heard, the Zephyr Wind development south of Watfordis being appealed by us (Middlesex-Lambton Wind Action Group Inc.). Although this may seem small in our local eyes, it is actually a huge appeal in the province’s eyes – this  is where the spotlight is shining on inOntario in the big picture, little ‘ol Watford andWyoming.

What we must all understand is that fighting against the Zephyr project (wherever you live in this province), is fighting for the project in your area as well. I don’t live in the Zephyr project, but I am as concerned about this appeal as I would if it was in my back field.

Many of you may remember the Thamesville Environmental Review Tribunal appeal this spring. The wind industry and government touted it as a victory. What they didn’t realize is that they actually lost. Yes, they did. The decision on July 18, after weeks of testimony from experts from around the world in Chatham states:

“This case has successfully shown that the debate should not be simplified to one about whether wind turbines can cause harm to humans. The evidence presented to the tribunal demonstrated that they can, if facilities are placed too close to residents. The debate has now evolved to one of degree.”

Our lawyer is Eric Gillespie from Toronto, the same lawyer who appealed the Thamesville project, and has extensive background on this issue and has devoted years of work,  fighting for our cause.

Below is a donation form with more information on the appeal. Please- print it off, read it and send a contribution to the appeal. Every donation is much appreciated- we cannot do this without your support. To double the effort, please print off a couple extra copies for friends and neighbours who are interested in fighting wind turbine development in rural Ontario.

Thank you all very much for all your help this year – we are in a better place than we were a year ago – I can count all the good things that have happened, but I need more than one hand to do it- that is a wonderful sign! Let’s keep the momentum going, and help with this huge step forward in our fight.
