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.

  1. Give Green A Rest!

    Yes they did and we thank them. but barely did they support the motion, it was a tie breaker!

    Come on people we are all your rural neighbors and should be getting way more support, it shouldn’t come as a hard decision to do so !!

    Do you all want the countryside and shores to be covered by these industrial machines? Do you want them to be put up without the proper studies for human and animal kind? Does it just sit well to hand over our Ontario to companies overseas that will make a profit on our backs and we get to pay for it for decades and have to live with all the consequences?

    Get updated and help to save our Ontario, you live here too!!!
    This should be a fight to save our land, not just pushed aside as just a rural issue!!
