Boralex installs MET tower in N. Middlesex

Boralex wrote a short note to North Middlesex council just to inform that that they are installing a MET tower, and that apparently, “many of your neighbours have already indicated they would like to be part of the project”. BS. In any case, they don’t even say WHERE they are installing the MET tower – I guess they don’t have to tell the township? Who needs a permit for anything around here anymore – as long as it’s tied to green energy!
