Sixty-four supporters of the the County’s South Shore said “to heck with winter, we’re Canadian” and joined volunteers from Prince Edward County Field Naturalists and the Alliance to Protect Prince Edward County on a Winter Wonderland Walk.

The leisurely stroll, Saturday, was along Hilltop and Brewer’s Roads and raised more than $2,400. The event was the 2016 inaugural fund raiser for the South Shore Appeal Fund, paying legal costs for Environmental Review Tribunals appealing industrial wind turbine projects. More than $250,000 has been collected to date.

Drummer Gavin North led the group. Long Dog winery offered warm hospitality and mulled wine at the end of the walk.

Organizer Janna McCarthy was pleased with the results of the event.

“Getting something like this together over the holiday season was a bit of a challenge”, she said, “but in the end, as usual, County people came through to make it a successful event.”

Final oral presentations in the Ostrander Point ERT were heard Friday in Toronto. On Jan. 20 and 21, final oral presentations in the wpd ERT appeal are to be heard at the ESSROC Centre in Wellington, starting at 10 a.m. Wednesday.

UPDATE JAN 19: The ERT hearing scheduled Wednesday in Wellington has been cancelled.

Late last Friday APPEC’s legal counsel received the reply submissions from the Approval Holder and the Director on the White Pines appeal. On the same date, APPEC’s counsel also received the written decisions of the Tribunal on previous motions raised during the course of the hearing.

During a telephone conference call Tuesday morning, the Environmental Review Tribunal agreed to the consented solution of the parties to allow APPEC and Mr. Hirsch until Friday to submit replies and cancelling of the hearing Wednesday in Wellington.
