SW Liberal ridings in trouble

Problem-plagued LIberals have lost support in 10 ridings in SW Ontario

April 20, 2014

Deborah Van Brenk

If the minority Liberal government can’t pass its budget next month, Ontario will be plunged into a widely expected spring election. Deb Van Brenk tested the early voter mood in the 10-riding London region, driving its Hwy. 401 backbone. Once almost solidly Liberal, the region now has only one Grit left standing. High power bills, the gas plants scandal, wind turbines — voters are chafing at many issues.


2011 (Liberal minority government):

Conservatives: 7

Liberals: 2 (MPP Chris Bentley later resigned in 2013)

NDP: 1 (gained Bentley’s London West seat in 2013 byelection)

2007 (Liberal majority)

Conservatives: 2

Liberals: 8

2003 (Liberal majority)

Conservatives: 1

Liberals: 9

[The dinner is now SOLD OUT.  Thanks for your support.  Read on for an update on the ERT appeal.]

PECFN is hosting a gala dinner by highly-regarded chef Michael Hoy, plus art auction, on Saturday, April 12 at the Picton Curling Club.  Purpose: to raise funds for its continuing appeal of the Ostrander Point wind project approval.  Last year’s dinner by Michael Hoy was a sellout, so it’s advisable to reserve early.  For more information and to reserve online, click HERE, or phone Sandra at 613-393-5577.

To bring you up to date, PECFN’s earlier ERT win last July, on grounds of serious and irreversible harm to Blanding’s turtle, was reversed in February by Ontario’s Divisional Court.  This means that the project is back to its earlier approved status.  PECFN has applied to Ontario’s Court of Appeal to hear an appeal of the controversial Divisional Court decision.  If its application is successful (decision several months…

Could this be where the 550 m setback came from?

March 16, 2014

There is no scientific consensus on a safe setback distance between residences & wind turbines. Perhaps Ontario’s 550 m setback has more to do with assuring developers that a turbine can be dropped at the back of each rural lot, as indicated by the orange area below. If the adult residents have signed a lease with the wind company, then the turbine can be placed in the yellow area as well.
