Arran-Elderslie is joining West Grey in its fight to have the Province of Ontario place an indefinite moratorium on the construction of industrial wind turbines in their, and other, Ontario municipalities.
Last fall, Elderslie ward councillor Mark Davis suggested placing a moratorium on turbine construction in Arran-Elderslie only to become frustrated with both municipal staff and county planners telling him such a moratorium wasn’t the right approach to the problem.
“I’m tired of hearing what we can’t do,” Davis said at the time. “These things are going to ruin rural Ontario forever and we’re going to let some bureaucratic paperwork stop us from fighting them?”
