WIND CONCERNS MEAFORD :
PROTECTING THE QUALITY OF LIFE IN RURAL MEAFORD
Wind Concerns Meaford is an association of mostly rural residents of northern Grey County who, upon learning that a number of companies were intending to build numerous large and small industrial wind turbine developments in our midst, came together to research, inform our neighbours and the public at large about the true nature, the intent and the consequences of such developments. We have since been joined by our fellow citizens across the municipality. As we are entirely self-funded and totally dependent on volunteer work, we welcome new members who share our concern and who may wish to contribute their talents, time and/or financial assistance.
This website is our way of communicating with each other, share the latest developments, publicize upcoming events and reach the wider public with our message. It is also a convenient portal to Wind Concerns Ontario(WCM is a member).
Our association has focused on several local wind-turbine projects, informing Meaford Municipal Council on the danger of allowing these developers, who operate behind the "Flying Wedge" of the Green Energy Act, to run roughshod over the interest of our community and many of its ratepayers.
As the upcoming provincial election nears, we are becoming more openly political in drawing the attention of the voting public to the fact that the present provincial government and its ministers are totally out of reach, refusing to answer requests for information or engage in any dialogue. We publicize the enormous threat to our environment, our health, our beautiful countryside and our financial well-being. We have learned over the past year or so that, regardless of where one stands on global warming or CO2 levels in the atmosphere, the proposed wind-turbines are entirely useless in alleviating any environmental degradation.
Help us to convince our fellow citizens and our elected officials that the evidence is already in, right across the world : scientific evidence and financial prudence must override greed and political expediency.
