About Us

The Nor’Wester Mountain Escarpment Protection Committee (NMEPC) was created and driven by volunteers due to the need to protect the Nor’Wester Mountain Escarpment from development that has the potential to harm the natural environment and the health of the residents.

The purposes of the NMEPC include the protection of the wildlife, water and the natural environment of the Nor’Wester Mountain Escarpment and Loch Lomond Watershed, educating and informing the community of the steps that can be taken to protect this area through meetings and seminars, and to conducting research on protecting the unique environment of Nor’Wester Mountains and the health of its residents.

OUR MISSION

To stop the development of a proposed Industrial Wind Turbine Installation.  The NMEPC believes that the City of Thunder Bay should demonstrate due diligence by evaluating the value and potential of the 17,000 acres of land  known as the Loch Lomond Watershed and the encompassing the Nor’Wester Mountain Escarpment in the Municipality of Neebing.  The NMEPC believes this evaluation should  be consistent with the City of Thunder Bay Corporate Policy and Community Environmental Action Plan and therefore provide proper stewardship of this asset, while recognizing the impact on the citizens, businesses and first nations in close proximity to this land.

OUR VISION

To ensure the Nor’Wester Mountain Escarpment and the land known as Loch Lomond Watershed protected for the value that it has in it’s natural state for future generations.

This site is intended to provide information and research on the risks of Industrial Wind Turbines, inform you of upcoming events, meetings and seminars in our community, and help you get involved!

We hope that you will find a wealth of information and references in this site.
