Divisional Court dismissed APAI's appeal of the Environmental Review Tribunal decision on Tuesday January 31, 2017. Counsel for APAI has submitted Leave to Appeal.


Windlectric/Algonquin, the company granted approval to blanket Amherst island with 26, fifty storey turbines, has commenced dock construction on Amherst Island. The Company has not submitted a Marine Safety and Logistics Plan required by MOECC nor has it submitted an Operations Plan acceptable to Loyalist Township. No acceptable Emergency Response and Communications Plan is in place. No Roads Use Agreement with the County of Lennox and Addington has been approved.


In its first weeks of work the company blatantly disregarded commitments to only use the Island ferry for dock construction, to not disrupt the ferry schedule, to give notice of traffic disruptions and to consult with Amherst Island Public School staff and parents concerning road safety by the school. Not a good beginning!


Construction also ignores a Road Use Agreement between the Township and Windlectric signed in October 2015. The Agreement stipulates that “Windlectric will host a Town Hall meeting to obtain feedback from the public and address concerns to minimize the level of disruption, disturbance and inconvenience to the Municipality’s residents.”


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.
