  • The Wellington Advertiser - Council opts to consider judicial appeal after province approves wind turbines
    Council is instead asking lawyer Peter Pickfield of Guelph to review the documents and determine if a judicial appeal to halt the wind farm is feasible Pickfield is familiar with the turbine file having already acted for Wellington County on the same issue John Krul who has been the spokesman for Stop Mapleton Wind Farms told council on Dec 13 the tribunal was the more expensive way to appeal the decision Whale said taking the judicial appeal route would also give council a little more time Residents living near the proposed turbine site were outraged they had only 15 days to appeal the ministry decision The deadline is Dec 23 two days before Christmas Whale said having a lawyer check the files to ensure NextEra followed all proper procedures and met all the legal criteria for the project was another way to approach the township s objections It s sort of due diligence on our part Whale said adding that a judicial review does not fall under the appeal deadline and that gives Pickfield some time and the opportunity to go through the proposal to determine if there were errors or omissions that could overturn the project The proposal is for ten wind turbines providing 18 to 25 3 megawatts of power southwest of Arthur The turbines will be 80 metres high and able to collectively generate enough electricity to power more than 5 400 homes Whale was unsure what the anti wind farm group would be doing noting the township was attempting to contact its members about council s decision But he said if those residents are going to launch an appeal it is likely better for both groups if council is separated from what is effectively now a lobby group He believes it would give that group an advantage during future hearings Whale said it would likely take a couple of weeks before Pickfield can go through the paperwork and make his recommendation NextEra spokesman Josie Hernandez said Tuesday the company remains confident in its robust application It exceeds all the provincial standards Mapleton Township staff was inundated with calls from across the province on Monday as council deliberated The NextEra proposal is the first to be approved under the provincial Green Energy Act and chief administrative officer Patty Sinnamon said there is much interest from other municipalities who are facing similar proposals in their jurisdictions The Advertiser was unable to reach Krul for a comment December 23 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 order to post a comment For more information read our detailed Comment Policy and Guidelines Related Stories Council passes taxes borrowing bylaws Slower calendar sales could mean less funding for two local events Mapleton

  • The Wellington Advertiser - Anti-turbine group: Ministry played games
    moratorium on all approvals until health studies had been done About 80 municipalities have supported that resolution He noted that in an appeal in the Chatham Kent area the courts did not uphold the complaint on health issues but it also did not state that health issues had no effect at all Whale added there will be ongoing health studies but that could take five to ten years Krul said there are many inconsistencies from the MOE in the application When the group complains about NextEra s proposals to the MOE the government ministry informs the company and it then makes changes One resident said of the MOE We don t think they follow their own procedures Another said the MOE is currently under fire for their new website It contains almost fraudulent information Another said there were no public meetings after NextEra made numerous changes to its proposal in September so the public had no chance to comment on what was finally approved by the province That questioner noted the changes were to the location the transmission lines the communications tower and access roads and except for four turbines everything had been changed Krul said It seems to me the MOE is pandering to the wind industry Whale said timing is critical and the township might use county lawyer Peter Pickfield who has already reviewed many of the documents in the case to see if there is a chance of an appeal He added council would decide about an appeal on his advice Krul said if anyone files a notice of appeal it would not take place for two or three months Councillor Andy Knetsch asked if there can be an appeal based on the Charter of Rights and Freedoms Wind farm opponent Donna Weaver replied the ombudsman is working on that and there are possibilities of appeals under the Environmental Bill of Rights and the Environmental Protection Act at the federal and provincial levels But she said No one at the ombudsman s office seems to know Krul urged council to support the group and said Everyone is watching this area He explained that is because this is the first project to obtain its approval since the province passed its Green Energy Act Curry said there might be grounds for an appeal under technical issues and he has talked with MP Gary Schellenberger who told him there might be some federal protection Curry said there are health implications and We may have federal law step in Krul said as much as the wind industry denies it companies have bought up homes of people who became too ill to live in them but in Mapleton it is not possible to sell out because It s not possible to move a farm Another said Eric Gillespie the lawyer representing wind turbine opponents in Chatham Kent feels we have a strong case But Whale said the Chatam Kent appeal was unsuccessful and that wind farm still went ahead There is currently
