Call to Local Wind Action…
To continue the fight to protect this area from unnecessary and unneeded industrial development, the call is out for people to show up in the Sumac Ridge project area next Tuesday March 4th at a little after 11 am. The Toronto based Chinese TV Network, Fairchild Television is coming out and would like to interview COKL Councillor Heather Stauble and Cavan Monaghan Deputy Mayor Scott McFadden as well some of the protestors who were in Toronto and other concerned residents. There will be a very brief meet-up at Rolling Hills School at 11 am with Manvers Wind Concerns and then a convoy to the heart of the Sumac Ridge project.
The call is out by Manvers Wind Concerns for people to show up at the corner of Wild Turkey Road and Ballyduff Road at a little after 11 am with signs… MWC will also supply signs. The safest way to approach Wild Turkey Road is from Highway 35 via Ballyduff… Wild Turkey Road is NOT maintained.
A big “THANK YOU” to all those who came out to greet Fairchild Television and show them our objection to the proposed Sumac Ridge Project.

UPDATE: Sumac Ridge from COKL Councillor Heather Stauble
I am attaching a copy of the Order that was issued yesterday regarding the Environmental Review Tribunal on the Sumac Ridge Wind Project adjourning the Hearing until at least April 8th, 2014.
At the beginning of this process, the Director at the Ministry of the Environment came forward acknowledging that a noise receptor had been identified that was within the 550m setback established under the Green Energy Act regulations (O. Reg 359-09).
The Tribunal has now cancelled all Hearing Dates and called an Adjournment until April 8, 2014 at which time the Tribunal will re-assess the status of the proceedings. The Director at the Ministry of the Environment must now bring forward his decision to revoke, amend or take no action in writing.
If the turbine that is currently within the 550m setback is not eliminated from the plan, and either moved or left in place, an opportunity to comment on the revised plan would be important.
In the meantime…email action required!
- wpd has initiated what they claim is a Municipal Environmental Assessment, WITHOUT the consent of the City of Kawartha Lakes for roads in the project area. This is NOT a municipal EA. The email contact and website are: firstname.lastname@example.org or at:www.muncipalea2014.ca. Please copy comments to email@example.com.
- In addition, wpd has applied to the Ontario Energy Board to have access to Gray Rd. Road allowance and Wild Turkey Rd. under the Electricity Act. The posting on the Ontario Energy Board website requires that they notify adjoining landowners, the Clerk at the municipality and post the information on their website. There does not appear to have been any notice on the wpd website as of yesterday and no notice was provided to the City of Kawartha Lakes. Adjoining landowners who were NOT notified should advise the Ontario Energy Board and copy me firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
