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 has not approved the draft Operations Plan required by the Roads Use Agreement.  Windlectric has not entered into a Roads Use Agreement with the County of Lennox and Addington.   The company’s pre-construction study and Operations Plan note that Island roads with the exception of Front Rad do not have the load bearing capacity to support project traffic and equipment.  Island roads will fail!

In its first weeks of work the company caused a major power outage on the Island and a water emergency in Prince Edward County.  Restrictions due to fish spawning and grassland birds were blatantly disregarded.    Not a good beginning!

Call to Action
Please request Premier Wynne (premier@ontario.ca or 416-325-1941) and Minister Murray (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.
