Kathleen Wynne is the current Ontario Liberal Government Premier.

In 2009, the Liberal Party enforced the Green Energy Act (GEA) into the legislation that changed 18 legislative laws to replace the Energy Conservation Leadership Act and the Energy Efficiency Act.

The GEA (Green Energy Act) in Ontario stripped the Municipalities and the citizens the right to be heard and have a say in what happens in their communities.

In her first throne speech, Premier Kathleen Wynne said Ontario could benefit from industrial wind farms only if there were willing hosts for the turbines.

Kathleen Wynne stated But Only If We Have Willing Hosts. Read the speech from the Throne, “The Way Forward” February 19, 2013).

Shortly after, many communities declared themselves unwilling hosts

The Municipality of West Grey, meanwhile, declared itself an “unwilling host” for industrial wind turbines, as did our next level of municipal government, the County of Grey.

D.A.C.E.S ~ Durham Area Citizens For Endangered Species was formed but after many trips to court with the MOECC ~ Ministry of Environment & Climate Change, MNRF ~ Ministry of Natural Resources-Forestry and the wind company, West Grey has 14 industrial wind turbines in their neighbourhoods.

Read articles on the GEA.
