Wind turbine protestors outside Goderich courthouse
CTV London : Protestors were outside the Huron County Court House in Goderich Friday morning as the K2 Wind farm goes on trial. Inside, the courtroom was full with at least 100 people in attendance. Locals want a proposed wind farm near Goderich stopped and they have filed an injunction in court to do so. Arguments Friday morning from the province suggest Shawn and Trisha Drennans’ injunction request should be dismissed because there is an environmental tribunal panel to deal with turbine issues.
