Old Growth Maple Forest in ThunderBay being chopped down for ‘green’ wind turbines

James Murray — NetNewsLedger — September 16, 2013

THUNDER BAY – Editorial – Ontario has an electricity surplus. That is the word coming out from Energy Minister Bob Chiarelli. The Ontario Government is set to pay wind farm producers not to produce energy.

In Thunder Bay, an old growth Maple Forest is in the process of being destroyed to put in a wind farm.

The irony is incredible.

Northwestern Ontario, and the Thunder Bay District was able to supply electrical power to run all the grain elevators at full capacity, along with the several paper mills in our area. There isn’t a shortage, well, at least not a shortage of electricity.

Common sense however?

Maybe the shortfall is there?

At issue appears that no one locally is willing to stand up for the future of the hardwood maple forest. The process forward is in the hands of the Ontario Government.

The real issue is one of silence. Virtually no one is effectively standing up for the trees. Part of that is that city councillors who are opposed to the proposed project are effectively gagged. If they speak out, the city will not cover their legal fees.    Read full article, here…..
