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.

Below is a 2017 selection of vases that we believe will appeal to anyone who is opposed to wind turbines on Amherst Island. We are pleased to donate 100% of all sales from these vases to support the environmental and cultural objectives of APAI. Great hostess gifts!

The 2017 Chive / APAI Vase Collection

Atrion Tube Vase – silver ceramic
As far as modern decorative vases come, they truly don’t come as classy, cool and current as the Atrion tube vase that Chive has designed. This fabulous ceramic textured vase in silver works great for weddings and events – whether that’s in the summer or a glitzy, Gatsby-themed Christmas soirée! You can use the Atrion as a stand-alone decorative piece, or mix with other shapes and colors to create more depth to any of your creative centerpiece arrangements.
The Atrion Tube is 3″ in diameter and 8″ tall.
$29.00

‘The Big Atrion’ – glossy pewter ceramic
The Big Atrion is designed as either a stand-alone decorative piece or to be mixed with other shapes and colors to create more depth to any of your creative centerpiece arrangements. This piece makes it a firm fave with Chive HQ and our ever-growing fanbase! . . . great for long stem flowers and branches.
The Atrion Large Cylinder Pewter is 4.5″ in diameter, 14.7″ tall.
$60.00

Imperial Jeanie – metallic finish on glass
Opt for a hint of refined elegance with this colored glass vase. This stunning design of Imperial enhances the familiar cylindrical shape with a beautifully accented, lustrous metallic finish. Fill this sparkling accent with your favorite assortment of seasonal blossoms or a selection of modern decorative additions. Perfect as a gift, but you’ll want to keep these colored glass vases all to yourself. Vases like these work well as a set or on their own.
Imperial Jeanie is 3.5″ in diameter, 5.5″ tall.
$35.00

Chimney – blown glass
The tall and thin tube of Chimney is a fantastic modern decorative vase for home décor. They are made of thick & heavy hand blown glass so no two pieces are identical. An unusual technique is used to create these modern decorative vases: all are infused with copper wire when the glass is being fired to give the luxurious champagne bubble finish.
Chimney Pipe is 2” in diameter, 8” tall.
$30.00

Hoot – porcelain / an old favourite
Floral ceramic vases have always been our specialty, but this time we decided to up our game a little and make this one out of porcelain so that Hoot, that wise old owl, would really shine. As with all vases for home décor they must be versatile and easy to use. Hoot is simple to work with and always looks great. Or if he needs another feathery friend, the Porcelain Bird vase is always fun to play with. . . . still available to the APAI community.
The Hoot vase is 5″ in diameter and 10″ tall.
$60.00

The Pooley – and then there is the ‘Pooley’
The Pooley vase is the best selling bud vase in Chive history. . . selling over 75,000 worldwide. Originally launched in one color variation and one all-white vase in 2010, they continue to be our most loved flower arrangement containers.
The Pooley vase is a fully glazed ceramic bud vase and it takes all the work and thought out of flower arranging. Simply pop a stem in all or a few of the tubes and voila! Each tube is attached to the base and is individually separated so you can fill just one or fill them all.

During those dark and dreary winter months that you may be without cuttings from your garden, the colors and shape of the Pooley Vase give it a visual interest so it looks super cool sitting on your shelf with no flowers at all.

Not only is the Pooley Vase one of the easiest flower arrangement containers that has ever existed, it has also been used as a unique vessel for arranging your pens and pencils and make up brushes. . . . and makes for a great gift for any occasion.
The Pooley vases are: 7.25″ long, 3″ wide and 4.5″ tall.
$35

Also, there are a few vases left from the 2015 and 2016 Chive/APAI collections.

APAI thanks Todd Newgren, Don Newgren and Elizabeth Barry for their ongoing and very generous support.
