Natives protesting at wind turbine sites

Simcoe Reformer — January 17, 2013

HALDIMAND – Natives are protesting at wind turbine project sites in Haldimand County.

“It’s a rotating protest that is going from one site to the next. So far, they’ve been to five or six sites,” Haldimand OPP Const. Mark Foster told the Simcoe Reformer on Thursday afternoon.

Protests are being held in the area of Haldimand Road 55 near Cheapside (towards Nanticoke Industrial Park).

Protests have halted construction at some locations. Reports say workers at the wind turbine sites were told to go home.

There are no shortage of sites for natives to protest at in Haldimand. About 180 wind turbines are being put up in the county.

Earlier this month, the public was outraged when an eagles’ nest was removed from one of the wind turbine construction sites near Fisherville in Haldimand County. A tree housing the nest was cut down to make way for an access road for the Summerhaven wind turbine project.
