VIDEO: Wilson calls on Liberals to stop wind turbine project
(February 23, 2016) The Liberal government should do the right thing and stop Wpd Canada from building eight wind turbines near the Collingwood Regional Airport, Simcoe-Grey MPP Jim Wilson said in a Member's Statement today.
"Mr. Speaker, I don't understand why the government is putting the lives of people at risk," Wilson said inside the Legislature. "These turbines are a bad idea. I'm calling on the government to do the right thing and put a stop to this lunacy today, before someone is killed. It's not a matter of if that will happen, Mr. Speaker, but rather a case of when."
The Liberal government recently approved the wind turbine project, despite calls against it by Wilson, municipal officials, airport board representatives and members of Ontario's flying community. They all say the turbines pose a serious risk to planes taking off and landing at the airport.
