Ruling on Suncor project expected Thursday

Front Page | News.

The Environmental Review Tribunal is expected to rule March 4 on whether Suncor Energy can move ahead with its Cedar Point wind project.

The company has been planning the 43-turbine project in Plympton-Wyoming and Lambton Shores for years but has faced stiff opposition from the community. WAIT – We’re Against Industrial Turbines – was formed to try to stop the project.

WAIT, as well as the County of Lambton, were part of a hearing held mostly in Camlachie in December and January, aimed at stopping the project. The Bryce Family, who will have a number of turbines around their home, also were part of the appeal.

The final arguments were heard Feb. 19 and the tribunal is expected to release a decision March 4.

In the history of wind projects in Ontario, the ERT has only stopped one project because of concerns it could damage the environment of the area.

    ERTs are the only path the public can take to try to protect themselves against this inept excuse for power generation – however ERTs are also designed to make sure the public cannot win.
    And we like to think we live in a democracy -dream on Ontario
