  • The Wellington Advertiser - Antiturbine groups signs being defaced, burned by vandals
    the blame squarely in the court of the provincial government Over two years ago the province told Wellington County to prepare land use guidelines for accepting wind turbines After over six months of work county council approved a policy Then the Liberal government passed the Green Energy Act and removed all local control over the turbines Vallery said the province presents the Green Energy Act as something that provides sustainable energy but It s been a green light for developers at the expense of society She noted too that Premier Dalton McGuinty is facing yet another scandal that came about when the province forced municipalities to list those paid more than 100 000 last year She said one of them was the man who was fired after the e health fiasco that wasted billions of dollars and did not come close to providing the health system it was supposed to be developing She said that man was paid 750 000 last year by Hamilton Health Sciences We paid this fired man three quarters of a million dollars said Vallery who watched on TV and said McGuinty s eyes kept shifting as reporters questioned him about it I ve lost all my faith in government said Vallery It s all back room stuff It s not about the people Vol 44 Issue 15 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 order to post a comment For more information read our detailed Comment Policy and Guidelines Related Stories Veteran Mervin Fisher From guilt and

  • The Wellington Advertiser - Invenergy sells wind farm back to earlier owner
    of Belwood an area within the Townships of Centre Wellington and East Garafraxa in Wellington and Dufferin Counties The boundaries for the project include Sideroad 15 to Sideroad 25 along Wellington County Road 16 From there the project runs northeast along the West Garafraxa and East Luther Grand Valley boundary road to the 10th Line in East Garafraxa and then southeast to Sideroad 10 in East Garafraxa and westward to the Garafraxa boundary line Another smaller parcel runs southeast from Sideroad 10 in East Garafraxa to Dufferin County Road 3 just below Marsville The major components of the project had included wind turbines and 690V 34 5 kV step up transformers located at the base of each turbine 34 5 kV collection system to link the wind turbines to the substation Those lines are expected to be primarily below ground on private land and overhead lines along municipal road right of ways a substation to step up the electric output from 34 5 kV to 230 kV a switching station at the point of connection with the provincial grid turbine access roads one meteorological tower which is already installed and operating staging areas for assembly of wind turbines only during construction and a temporary concrete batch plant required only if concrete cannot be sourced through local suppliers The proposed towers were to be approximately 80 to 100 metres high and the length of the rotor blades was 40 to 50 metres The land base required for each turbine excluding the access road is less than half an acre 0 25 acres excavation 0 15 acres maintenance clearing once in operation The latest purchase has left local opponents of the project puzzled about what will come next Janet Vallery of Oppose Belwood Wind Farms said on Monday the group learned about the sale with a check on the Invenergy web site but that was just a notice about the sale We haven t had any contact with TransCanada officials We did find out that TransCanada also owns a natural gas plant in Halton Hills They will be doing natural gas back up for the turbines She added that wind is not efficient and about 60 of the power generated by turbines will come from using natural gas She criticized the provincial government for its payment schedule to wind companies which has the province and then hydro customers paying much more than the actual cost of producing hydro power The Liberal government has announced that in the year of a provincial election it is sending a booklet to every household in Ontario to explain why the cost of power has to rise Estimates are that mailing project will cost taxpayers 1 million It s an unfortunate scam said Vallery of the province s hydro proposals She said selling and re selling wind farm projects makes it difficult for opponents to keep up with companies plans Our knowledge only comes with they post public meeting advertisements in the local newspapers Patterson said We

  • The Wellington Advertiser - Fans fought hard as beloved Newfoundland pony was nearly extinct
    riders to enjoy Percy said people growing up in Newfoundland were very familiar with the Newfoundland pony The sturdy and sure footed beasts were used for pulling wood for the fire timber wood kelp as well as transporting their owners by cart over the rough terrain They ran free and they were an integral part of Newfoundland life And then something changed in the 1940s and 1950s Mechanization started on the island which joined Canada in 1949 Because they roamed free people fenced their gardens against the ponies and then they no longer had the need to use them for travel or even hauling wood They became an expense after serving for years as an asset The Jessos figuratively shake their heads at the ponies fate By the 1970s they were in dire straits In 1935 there had been 6 025 ponies in Newfoundland and a healthy population existed up to the mid 1970s and early 80s Then the pony became part of the critical species list Communities enacted no roaming laws limiting breeding and a food supply As well owners were encouraged to have stallions gelded But the biggest problem was the ponies were no longer desirable in the modern age At least for the uses they once had Thousands of the Newfoundland ponies were sold to processing plants in Quebec whence the horse meat was sent to Belgium and France for human consumption By 1997 there were 144 known Newfoundland ponies left many of which were geldings and aging mares likely incapable of bearing offspring On Sept 12 1997 the government of Newfoundland declared the Newfoundland Pony a Heritage Animal for the province The Newfoundland Pony Society was named the official public group responsible for registering promoting and protecting this animal By 1998 the number of registered ponies was 214 and climbing and its fans are still hoping to register the Newfoundland Pony as an official breed under Canada s Animal Pedigree Act But even among fans of the breed there has been controversy and politicking within the society The Jessos love their ponies and Donna said they are terrific for adults and children Percy added They re strong for their size And people who just meet them for the first time also seem to take to them Donna has been showing them for four years Percy noted that when they took a Newfoundland pony to a rare breed show in Kentucky it took top honours Donna added We captured a lot of awards and won a lot of recognition She said the Newfoundland government finally took steps to protect the pony and in 1979 it passed laws forbidding shipping the ponies off the island for meat But that work might have been too late except that the pony has some fans scattered all over the place There are now more Newfoundland ponies in Ontario than there are in Newfoundland In fact Percy Jesso said Ontario has about 51 per cent of the entire Newfoundland pony population and
