FOR IMMEDIATE MEDIA ATTENTION
NMEPC to Join Rally & Protest March in Toronto Against Taxpayer Subsidies Paid to Industrial Wind Turbine Companies Through the FIT Program.
Several members of the Nor’Wester Mountain Escarpment Protection Committee will be in Toronto on Tuesday to join a provincial Rally & Protest March against the enormous waste of taxpayer money being paid through the Feed In Tariff (FIT) to Industrial Wind Turbine Companies and the subsequent costs to all Ontarians.
The downtown Rally & Protest March is expected to draw massive citizen turnout against wind turbines that encroach residential areas and destroy the rural Ontario landscape. The Rally will demonstrate at the Ontario Feed In Tariff Forum.
The local citizens group is extremely pleased with recent decisions by the Fort William First Nation and Neebing Municipal Council to withdraw their support of the proposal by Horizon Wind Inc. to erect giant wind turbines on the Nor’Wester Mountains & Loch Lomond Watershed. These Council resolutions are the latest and strongest indications that area citizens do not want harmful development on the iconic mountain range and sensitive watershed.
Media can contact Bob Baxter at the Rally 807-624-6890 on Tuesday 11:30 – 14:30 or anytime Wednesday when he and the NMEPC group return to Thunder Bay.
