Amherst Island is a beautiful island in Lake Ontario - and the site of a proposed wind farm development. These inefficient, massively-subsidized wind turbines are being put up without consultation from the residents of Amherst Island.
A Petition to the Legislative Assembly of Ontario
To the Legislative Assembly of Ontario:
Whereas, there is significant evidence that the proposed wind turbine project for Amherst Island will have long term negative consequences for the environment, health and prosperity of Islanders;
And Whereas, the Green Energy Act pays exorbitant subsidies that will benefit a few at significant cost to the many, to create power that is unneeded, and that the majority of residents have expressed their opposition to the project;
We, the undersigned, petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario as follows:
That the Liberal government now respect the will of the residents of Amherst Island, and cancel the contract with Algonquin power immediately.
