The rally took place at Rolling Hills Public School in Bethany, where previous rallies and public meetings had been held.

Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock MPP Laurie Scott was presented with thousands of signatures on petitions, letters and emails by Paul Reid of Manvers Wind Concerns and local Councilor Heather Stauble. In addressing the crowd, Scott said, “For four years you have voiced your opposition to wind turbines in our community. These petitions further reinforce that.”

Scott was also joined on stage by Member of Parliament Barry Devolin and broadcaster Dale Goldhawk. Scott went on to say “In her Throne Speech, the new premier talked about communities having a say in where these projects will be built and that they should go to willing host communities. I can assure the Premier that this is not a willing community.”

Since these proposed wind turbine projects have not been approved, Scott is urging the Premier to live up to her commitment in the Throne Speech, listen to the community and turn them down.

Scott promised to table the petitions in the Ontario Legislature at the earliest opportunity.
