Fedeli On Green Energy
March 13th, 2012 . Blackburn News

Tim Hudak’s energy critic says the Green Energy Act is pitting neighbour against neighbour.

Nipissing MPP Vic Fedeli spoke at a town hall meeting in Strathroy last night, where he says at least 250 people shared their thoughts for and against wind farms. “The health concerns came up. We have issues where it pits friend against friend, farmer against farmer, family against family, in terms of ‘I need the cash from the wind turbine’ versus ‘don’t put that next to me.’”

Fedeli says at tonight’s town hall in Blenheim, he’ll talk about how soaring energy costs caused by the Green Energy Act are behind the province’s high unemployment rate.

The meeting gets underway at 7 pm at Deer Run Golf Course.

Wind Turbine Town Hall
Strathroy MyFM

The focus and the message was as strong as wind blowing on a wind turbine, but last night at Amy’s Restaurant a jammed packed crowd of well over 200 filed in to listen and have their opinions heard on the issue of wind turbine and solar power. It was a town hall meeting hosted by Lambton-Kent-Middlesex MPP Monte McNaughton and the message was clear. To listen to constituents and take the message forward.

A wide variety of speakers addressed the crowd including farm residents, to wind action group members to people concerned that their health problems had to do with these turbines. The dignitary head table was comprised of McNaughton, PC Energy Critic and Nipissing MPP Vic Fedeli, Sarnia-Lambton MPP Bob Bailey, Huron-Bruce MPP Lisa Thompson, and Chatham-Kent MPP Rick Nicholls
