Tribunal Hearing To Proceed
A motion to dismiss an Environmental Review Tribunal hearing against the developer of a four-turbine wind farm in Brooke-Alvinston has been denied. The tribunal will hear from the Middlesex-Lambton Wind Action Group beginning in March. The province’s Environment Ministry had been trying to get the hearing thrown out, claiming the appellant’s arguments are repeats of what has been heard in passed hearings. The Wind Action Group’s Esther Wrightman says it’s important hearings be held on a case-by-case basis.
Wrightman says the Wind Action Group has 25 witnesses, including two experts lined up to speak at the hearing. The 10-session hearing begins March 7th at the Brooke-Alvinston-Inwood Community Centre, with two days of video-conference scheduled for Toronto.
