Perth-Wellington MPP Randy Pettapiece is holding a public town hall meeting to give constituents a chance to voice their concerns about wind energy.
The meeting is being held at Elma Memorial Community Centre in Atwood on March 14 at 7p.m.
“When it comes to wind turbines, the McGuinty government has not been serious about consulting the public,” Pettapiece said in a release. “If they won’t, we will.”
Huron-Bruce MPP Lisa Thompson and Nipissing MPP Vic Fedeli also plan to be at the gathering to hear from residents of Perth-Wellington. Fedeli is the Progressive Conservative critic for energy. Thompson’s critic responsibilities focus on issues related to the Green Energy Act.
“Industrial wind farms are a very hot topic, and people are concerned,” said Pettapiece.
