As many of you will already know from news reports, Ontario’s Environmental Commissioner issued a statement yesterday that industrial wind turbines should not be installed in Important Bird Areas.
The Environmental Commissioners’ statement is another major source of validation for our efforts to protect our globally-significant IBA and migratory bird route. The SSC Board will be meeting today to discuss a strategy to draw attention to the Prince Edward County South Shore IBA. We will be requesting your help and participation tomorrow. For now we would appreciate your participating in the Quinte News poll.
Quinte News is conducting a poll on this question: “Do you agree with the Environmental Commissioner’s recommendation to not allow wind turbines in Protected Bird Areas?”
Please vote “Yes…. Wildlife is important and the birds should be protected” at http://www.quintenews.com/category/polls/
Thank you for your support!
