Wind Wise Radio presents Strife in Ontario

April 14, 2012 takes a stab (with push pins) to illustrate the potential extent of turbine development in southern Ontario

Ontario has a dangerous build-out of industrial wind turbines and as a result has spawned a fierce opposition movement. Listen as co-hosts Harley Keisch and Annie Hart Cool interview 6 people engaged in the fight.

Wind Wise Radio airs each Sunday at 7:00 pm Eastern time or anytime on the web.

  • Mark Davis is Deputy Mayor of the Municipality of Arran Elderslie, about 3 hours northwest of Toronto.  He works with the Inter Municipal Wind Turbine Working Group to influence public opinion around the Ontario Green Energy Act and to reassert local control.
  • Greg Schmalz is the founder of S.T.O.P. (Saugeen Shores Turbine Operation Policy), which has opposed placement of 35-story turbine on the grounds of the $70M resort run by the Canadian auto workers union.
  • Lisa Thompson is the Provincal representative for Bruce-Huron. She was elected to the Ontario Legislature on October 6, 2011. In spite of defeats, she has allowed the concerns of rural Ontario to be heard.
  • Jane Wilson is a Registered Nurse and health care writer and editor, who is the current president of Wind Concerns Ontario, a coalition of individuals and community groups in Canada’s most populous province, Ontario.
  • Gail and Ed Kenney are residents of Wolfe Island Ontario who appealed their property value assessment only to be rejected this past week by Ontario’s assessment review board–because they could find “no evidence” (this despite no homes sold since the 86 Turbines went up).
