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.

Special Council Meeting re Operations Plan

Category: Uncategorized

Loyalist Council will consider Windlectric’s Operations Plan on Monday May 29 at 5:00 pm (Note correction!)

Of equal importance Council will consider verbal submissions at its meeting on Tuesday May 23 2017 at 7:00 and will consider written submissions no later than Tuesday May 23rd at 4:30 pm.

Please attend both meetings and ensure your voice is heard.

This is a critical opportunity to make the case about the impact on your property. You may wish to comment on the lack of survey information, safety, load bearing capacity of roads, truck traffic, location of collectors, enforceability given Windlectric’s performance to date, compliance, impact on your well and aquifers, and all aspects of the project keeping in mind that Council is limited by the Green Energy Act.

You can view the Operations Plan on the Loyalist web site: http://www.loyalisttownship.ca/…/…/amherstislandwindproject/.
