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.

Category: Uncategorized

Loyalist Township in a letter dated January 20, 2017 to Algonquin Power advises that Operations Plan submitted on December 23, 2017 lacks the requisite detail to enable a “through review of the Plan as it relates to the public interest namely minimizing impacts to its residents, protection an maintenance of municipal infrastructure, preservation of Amherst Island heritage and and to ensure continued and effective emergency services during construction”.

The CAO’s letter concludes ” Loyalist Township believes that a clear and comprehensive Operations Plan will be of great benefit to all parties, during the implementation stage of this project. Accordingly, we formally request a detailed written response to the matters raised herein, by no later than February 28,2017″.
