Windlectric Inc. a subsidiary of Algonquin Power and Liberty Utilities blanketed Amherst Island with 26 fifty storey turbines. The desecration  is unimaginable.    Call to Action: Please request Premier Ford (premier@ontario.ca) to cancel the project  because it’s absolutely the right thing to do.

The Desecration of Amherst Island Continues

Category: Uncategorized

Windlectric (Algonquin AQN-T) has chosen to construct in winter endangering both their own workers and Island residents. Safety continues to be a major concern. No Coast Guard rescue is available in the winter months. Barges and tugs cross the Amherst Island Frontenac II ferry path creating ice dams. Narrow icy roads are closed concurrently with lengthy forced detours isolating vulnerable residents. Other roads are reduced to one lane. Numerous instances of non-compliance with both the REA conditions and the Operations Plan have been reported with no meaningful response from the company.

Our sadness is overwhelming. Our resolve and tenacity to protect the rich cultural and natural heritage of the Island are intensified.
