The OAC (McGuinty Government) wants your input on the FIT program and other aspects of clean/green energy. While some of the questions seem to require technical answers and a thorough reading of government propaganda, you can tell them what you honestly think about turbines and how you believe they will affect the South Shore. There are no right or wrong answers – what counts are your opinions.
This type of survey usually attracts comments from non-rural people and those who have little understanding of the threats industrial wind turbines pose to fragile wildlife habitation and migrating species. It is important that we express our opinions as well.
If you have not already done so, you can also write to our three new Ministers about this survey and express your concerns about the Gilead Power and White Pines Development industrial wind projects in the South Shore.

Windfall documentary now on TV
Last May APPEC and CCSAGE screened the Laura Israel documentary Windfall at the Regent Theatre. The film is an excellent American version of the BBC series Blown Apart, except it has a happier ending. If you missed it at the Regent or want to encourage friends to take a look, note that Windfall will have its Canadian television premiere on CBC’s specialty channel Documentary. Check your Bell, Rogers or Shaw Direct listings for this subscription channel.
Windfall airs Sunday, November 6 at 8 p.m. If you are in the GTA Windfall airs on Nov 7. Click on the link below for other viewing times:
