  • The Wellington Advertiser - Two sides have different take on CanWEAs wind turbine stance
    and productive experiences Hornung said He also stressed CanWEA a non profit association that represents wind energy proponents has always acknowledged a very small percentage of people can be annoyed by wind turbines Hornung said annoyance is a very personal experience and if it s perceived to lead to illness of any sort people should consult a physician Yet he said there s nothing unique about sound from turbines and the fact remains there is no scientific proof directly connecting turbines and adverse health effects Hanna on the other hand said CanWEA should not hide behind the word annoyance because it is described by the World Health Organization and Health Canada as a legitimate health threat It s not a good direction for them to go because then it just becomes a matter of semantics Hanna said He added Hornung s statement that a majority of people living near wind turbines don t experience health problems is akin to saying that some people do How many people can get sick before CanWEA will agree that health studies are needed Hanna asked He seemed to refute his earlier statement calling Hornung s comments a seismic shift when he called them instead a subtle but clear change He said it nobody made him say it Hanna said of Hornung s comments However Hornung reiterated CanWEA s position has remained quite consistent and the organization will continue to monitor any scientific advancements on the issue October 21 2011 Tweet Tell Us What You Think Login to submit a comment Comments appearing on this website are the opinion of the comment writer and do not represent the opinion of the Wellington Advertiser Comments that attack other individuals or are offensive unsubstantiated or otherwise inappropriate will be removed You must register or log in in

    preserving such woodlots is not yet firm county policy and further he checked and learned the policy has not even been circulated for public comment Redmond agreed and said I don t know where they are in the process It s certainly not approved at this point Seibel said the county seems to be suggesting guidelines that have not been circulated yet At a previous OMB hearing on the issue the township had agreed only to review the proposal he added If the township had been negotiating in good faith it would never have put the greenlands designation in Seibel said Keeping the two stands of trees would removed 4 8 acres from the potential of the development Redmond s final recommendation with one stand of trees removed from consideration reduced that to 4 acres Seibel said the company had not planned to cut down the trees but to use them as an amenity for larger lots with the tree stands in the back yards It s not even policy in Wellington County he said in the later interview It hasn t been made public They just decided to He said the result was unilaterally changing the official plan on land we have desigated industrial He said he expected the move will cost the subdivision about 16 homes At Wellington County council two days later council simply accepted Redmond s report as information and did not deal with it any further At Mapleton when it came time to consider the official plan as presented by Redmond councillors Andy Knetsch and Mike Downey were in favour and councillors Jim Curry and Neil Driscoll were opposed Mayor Bruce Whale broke the tie by voting in favour of it October 14 2011 Tweet Tell Us What You Think Login to submit a comment

  • The Wellington Advertiser - Guelph appears to be epicentre of battle against invasive buckthorn
    elsewhere in Ontario That makes the challenge of curtailing its exploding population in Guelph even greater than in other communities We aren t sure why it is so established in Guelph but it could relate to the Ontario Agricultural College that dates back to 1864 The plants were introduced from Europe because they are a natural green fence that is impassable for animals and ideal as hedgerows They grow so densely that livestock can t get through Native plants don t thrive in areas that include buckthorn and in fact this is a natural green fence that has run amuck said Cameron He and other city staff got a nasty browbeating from city residents when they destroyed some buckthorn while removing trees damaged during severe wind storms in June Cameron said he sees buckthorn being cared for by landscapers at apartment buildings and even Guelph staff have trimmed around it when it has popped up on city property It causes the most trouble in newly planted native areas and that is where the city and Trees for Guelph are working to remove it When they are small buckthorn plants can be pulled up by their roots But when they grow bigger the roots hold tight and it is very challenging to remove them The density of buckthorn in urban areas means it is a good place to dump garbage or to hide illegal activity from public view Police and parents have both helped the city to remove buckthorn at some locations Even though it is a small tree European buckthorn also called common buckthorn is one of 24 noxious weeds in Ontario akin to giant hogweed and ragweed and is listed on the Weed Control Act Those are the plants that a weed inspector can order a property owner in a rural area to remove If the buckthorn is not removed then the inspector can bring in a crew to take it out and present the property owner with a bill for the work It is listed because it is an alternate host for a fungus that impacts oats and because its leaves and bark are a strong laxative for humans not because of its invasive properties Despite the legislation buckthorn thrives It is seen as an ornamental garden plant incorporated into hedges and is often found invading native plant gardens although it is not sold Identifying buckthorn Common buckthorn Rhamnus cathartica and glossy buckthorn Rhamnus frangula are known to spread aggressively They grow up to six metres tall and the stems are 25cm or 10 inches in diameter Buckthorn is among the first trees to come into leaves in the spring and hold onto its leaves late in the fall so there is no fall colour It flowers early in the season and female plants form small black berry clusters in July It rapidly produces seeds early in the season that germinate quickly It has male and female plants and one strategy to remove plants is to focus first

    Rangers Spaling spent the next three seasons with the Rangers tallying 25 59 and 72 points respectively He was named Kitchener s rookie of the year for the 2005 06 season and also won the William Hanley Trophy in 2007 08 as the OHL s most sportsmanlike player Spaling was also one of 37 players selected for Team Canada s training camp for the 2008 World Junior Championships but he was sent home early due to mononucleosis Selected 58th overall by the Nashville Predators in the second round of the 2007 NHL entry draft Spaling spent the entire 2008 09 season with the Milwaukee Admirals the Predators AHL affiliate registering 35 points in 79 games He then split the 2009 10 season between Milwaukee and Nashville scoring 20 total points Last year his first full campaign in the NHL Spaling tallied 14 points in the regular season including his first career goal against the New York Islanders which he said was a highlight of his season But by far the biggest highlight was the team s run in the playoffs during which Spaling seemed to thrive He saw as much as 17 to 18 minutes of ice time per game down the stretch and registered six points and a plus three rating in 12 games Nashville defeated the Anaheim Ducks 4 2 in the first round and Spaling s second of two goals in game six was the game and series winner sending the Predators franchise to the second round for the first time in its 12 year history It was something special to be a part of Spaling said of the team s playoff run which ended after a second round defeat at the hands of eventual Stanley Cup finalists the Vancouver Canucks Nashville really supported us There was a lot of excitement that s for sure Spaling s play earned him praise from coaches and teammates alike He will do whatever it takes to help the team linemate Jerred Smithson told The Tenessean a Nashville newspaper after the Predators eliminated the Ducks He just goes out there every shift every night and battles hard He does all the little things right For him to get the success he s getting right now it s great to see That success translated this summer into a two year 2 1 million deal with the Predators But more importantly it also increased Spaling s confidence allowed him to feel more comfortable and helped with what he calls the never ending process of improving his all around play Your game always improves with more confidence he said I want to try to become more of an impact player Every year s about proving yourself and earning more ice time The ultimate goal of course is again making the playoffs and eventually winning the Stanley Cup One month into this season the Predators were tied for ninth place in the Western Conference one point out of the playoffs and Spaling was again dealing
