Rebuked for participating

London Free Press
The article Backlash stalls hundreds of jobs (Sept. 8) fails to explain how we rural Ontarians apparently have stopped Samsung from building a wind turbine manufacturing plant in London.

If by following the public process that the Ontario government has set up for us to use, we happen to be causing a slowdown in approvals, that shouldn’t be a problem for the Minister of Energy, should it?

The public is always chastised for not participating, but it doesn’t seem to be appreciated when we do attend meetings, fill in forms, ask questions, demand answers and, yes, appeal government decisions. If this causes Energy Minister Chris Bentley anxiety, he only has himself and his Liberal government to blame.
