Political chicanery or the Green Dream, it is pretty obvious that the situation in Ontario has become the forerunner to a revolution. Whether blood on the debating chamber or blood on the street remains to be seen but certainly it should be a warning to all that things can get a lot worse. One aspect that strikes me is how close turbines have been built to homes and farms. What is unclear is how many of these homes have hosted turbines and how many are hosted by neighbours. Certainly I can’t believe that many chose to have turbines this close. We do know that especially in parts of Australia the snake oil salesmen have worked their charm and many landowners comment that if they knew them what they know now there is no way they would have allowed them near their property. Contracts signed basically signed away all rights to a multi national conglomerate that saw them as A MUG! Was such a similarity with Ontario. Certainly their councillors and senators were in league with the planners and developers to an extent that defies logic. How long did they think the gravy train would go on until the wheels fell off? In Scotland, in Dumfries and Galloway, Aberdoomshire and Caithness we have seem the proliferation of wind at a density that is unsustainable for the local populace. In Aberdoomshire we have seen on-farm developments in some cases which are nearly as bad as Ontario, but I think even those living there will be astounded at the proximity of turbines to houses in Canada.
Ontario has a new web site which brings this into stark relief and we commend you to have a good look and see the future according to wind.
