EBR comments on Gilead due by Feb. 19

Tell the Ministry of the Environment what you think about wind turbines at Ostrander Point

The Ontario Environmental Bill of Rights (EBR) gives everyone the opportunity to comment on environmental issues, through the Environmental Registry.  You’ll find the Gilead proposal for Ostrander Point in the Environmental Registry at:

If this proposal is approved, Gilead will be allowed to “kill, harm and harass”  Blanding’s turtles and whip-poor-wills, as well as “damage and destroy” the whip-poor-will’s habitat to build the industrial wind turbines.

Need more information to explain why Ostrander Point is a really bad place for industrial wind turbines? Check out the PECFN blogs on Countylive.

The deadline is February 19th and you must quote the reference number 011-5239.

Tell the Ministry what you think. Go to the website and post your comments, or write a letter.

    Ostrander Point is the wrong location for wind turbines of this immense size as it holds one of only 4 locations for alvars, and is in a very important migratory bird landing area, both spring and summer. Continue to kill nature and we eventually kill ourselves.
