OPP save wind developers from “us”
So this is the new norm of a rural neighbourhood poised to see turbines in the future? Police on our dead end roads to ‘protect’ the wind developers (sticking flags int he ground) from .. a school bus? Maybe someone should tell the cop that the real danger lies in where this school bus goes every day – to a school that will be surrounded by 16 turbines within 3 km of it. Now THAT is criminal. Gives NextEra’s nickname ‘NexTerror’ a completely new meaning.
A couple reports and a reaction to ponder from Adelaide area this afternoon:
“When I was coming home today around 1pm, there was a Callon Dietz van parked on the corner of Cuddy and Kerwood Rd…. there were 2 or 3 other vehicles AND an OPP cruiser with his lights on. I passed them, and was wondering what was going on. They then came past our home – escorted by the OPP car. They were milling about. It leaves me wondering why my tax payer dollars are going to pay for a cop to escort them around! And perhaps if you need a police escort, you shouldn’t be mucking about in the dirty windmill industry.”
“1 truck, 1 van and a little blue car to look at flags. Oh don’t forget about the cop! He stood guard first in the middle of the road while my child got off the bus. That school bus is pretty shifty, eh! And you better watch out wind workers ya never know what traffic could pass them on that dead end road!!!”
“Why in god’s brown earth should any company need police escort if they are doing things that are ethical…”
