Residents cite concerns about land values and health if turbines are erected

A confrontational ratepayers meeting in the town of Durham last night left Municipality of West Grey council with no doubts that residents are concerned about a wind farm proposal for the area.
By the time question period rolled around, uniformed West Grey police officers were circling the crowd, reminding everyone to keep their emotions under control, and representatives for Nextera Energy Resources, which has proposed the project, looked uncomfortable.
“This is a rather intimidating group to stand before,” said project manager Nicole Geneau, after being asked what it would take to make Nextera pack up and leave.
