Ostrander Point: Turbines Proposed in Wetlands – See for Yourself

The deadline to comment on Gilead’s proposal to build 9 industrial wind turbines on the Ostrander Point Crown Land Block in Prince Edward County, Ontario is coming fast. There are ten days (February 17) before closing date for submissions to the Ontario Government’s Environmental Review Board, and it is time to talk facts.Here is just one small example of information provided by the proponent to the government. In the environmental screening report by Stantec, published in August 2010, Section 2.2.1 “Wetlands”, the consultants claim the following: “No wetland features were identified within the project location.”

Sounds like a fact right? This is the information upon which the government will be judging this project.

Now check out the following video clips, shot at Ostrander Point by me on June 1, 2011 and make up your own mind:
No wetlands they say? hmm. . . . Please make your voice heard.
