APAI was not successful in achieving Leave to Appeal.

Windlectric/Algonquin, the company granted approval to blanket Amherst island with 26, fifty storey turbines, has completed dock construction on Amherst Island and commenced dock construction on the mainland. Loyalist Township pproved the draft Operations Plan required by the Roads Use Agreement.     Contrary to commitments made at the ERT over 20 km of Island roads are being “reconstructed” with huge safety concerns.

The desecration of Amherst Island is unimaginable.  What Algonquin Power (AQN-T) and Windlectric Inc. say and what they do are vastly different.  No meaningful response to non-compliance is provided.

Call to Action
Please request Premier Wynne (premier@ontario.ca or 416-325-1941) and Minister Ballard (minister.moecc@ontario.ca or 416-314-6790) to cancel the project without penalty because of the company’s inability to achieve its Commercial Operations Date and because it’s absolutely the right thing to do.

We are being bullied AND we are resilient, tenacious, and absolutely committed.
