WAIT holds support rally before Plympton-Wyoming/Suncor court case


About 40 people braved the cold caring signs of support for Plympton-Wyoming at the Sarnia Courthouse this morning.

The municipality is in court this morning to answer to a lawsuit by Suncor Energy which says the municipalities rules governing the placement of wind turbines and the deposit required for them is too restrictive. Suncor, which plans the 42 wind turbine project in the Camlachie and Lambton Shores area, says it should have to follow the province’s requirements under the Green Energy Act.

Plympton-Wyoming requires a two-kilometer set back where the Green Energy Act requires only 500 meters. Mayor Lonny Napper has said the two-kilometer setback would protect the health of the people of Plympton-Wyoming.

Members of WAIT PW (We’re Against Wind Turbines in Plympton Wyoming) organized the protest to support the council’s move saying they’re only representing the wishes of their ratepayers.
