Strathroy-Caradoc Council Supports Wind Moratorium

Strathroy MyFM

Healthy discussion at this week’s Strathroy-Caradoc Council about an issue that this municipality really doesn’t have much say in. Council decided to support neighboring Adelaide-Metcalfe and a motion to support a moratorium for a proposed Wind Farm Project. Council was split on the decision voting to a 3-3 tie and broken by Deputy Mayor Brad Richards who was the acting Mayor Monday. Richards is in favor of it simply with a neighbor helping a neighbor train of thought.

While half of council supported this motion based on concerns over a wind farm project, the other half of council believed keeping this issue within the Provincial Government and how things are currently moving forward was sufficient enough for their liking at this particular time.
