I received this via email today.
(Queen’s Park) –“Today I introduced a bill at the Legislature to give Ontario municipalities and local residents a voice in the planning of wind energy projects,” said Sylvia Jones, MPP (Dufferin-Caledon).
Under the Liberal’s Green Energy Act, 2009, new wind projects will be built with no municipal planning control and limited public input. Jones wants to restore the traditional municipal planning oversight role with her Planning Amendment Act (Renewable Energy Undertakings), 2010.
“The Progressive Conservative Party and I raised concerns about the Green Energy Act from the very beginning,” said Jones. “My private members bill will return the power for planning renewable energy projects to municipalities who can be responsive to the needs of the community.”
“Municipalities know what works best for them,” said Jones. “The planning process is not new. Municipal planning has worked well in the past, and if given the opportunity can work well in the future. The voices of our communities and concerned Ontarians should not be shut down.”
Jones’ bill amends the Planning Act to reverse the effect of the amendments made to the Planning Act by Schedule K to the Green Energy Act, 2009. Those amendments exempted renewable energy undertakings from the normal application of the Planning Act, including policy statements, provincial plans, official plans, demolition control by-laws, zoning by-laws and development permit regulations and by-laws.
“The Green Energy Act shows little respect to municipalities and Ontario families,” said Jones. “I want to give residents across Ontario the power to refine renewable energy projects for their community.”

Having run as an Independent in the 2007 Ont. Provincial election and knowing the contents of the Conservative election platform, understanding this email is easy. It’s called “controlled opposition”.
The Politicians understand that the average voter is………well, dumber than a box of rocks.
Especially when you consider – the Conservatives promised to install more wind than the Liberals, if elected
So, why would any Conservative member come out against a piece of legislation they would have more than likely implemented themselves?
It’s a false Hope – but, to the dumbed down masses, a false hope is better than nothing. It’s not of course, but they don’t understand that.
The Harris Conservatives worked hard to destroy Ont. for eight years. (Harris is a Bilderberger)
The people were angry, rightfully so, and they threw out Harris and his band of Agenda21/NWO criminals.
McGuinty and the Liberals promised to make things right if elected. Instead they continued to carry out Agenda 21/NWO.
Today, nearing the end of the Liberals second term, the people of Ont. are angry once again and can’t wait to throw out McGuinty and his band of Agenda 21/NWO criminals.
Now we have the Conservatives offering hope to those who’ve been treated with disrespect by the Liberals.
The people of Ontario will elect the Conservatives in 2011, likely with a majority.
And guess what – the Conservatives will continue moving Agenda 21/NWO forward.
Just how stupid is the average Ontarian?
George Carlin put it this way “the politicians are there to give you the idea you have a choice – you don’t”.
Comments from the Wind Concerns Ontario website, a 42 group coalition fighting wind farms in Ont. They actually put the above Conservative bunk on their website.
Here are some comments- This is mind-blowing stuff. Are these people really fighting wind farms, is WCO part of the controlled opposition, or are they just plain stupid.
The jury is out……….anyway here’s some comments-
-Thank you for doing this. I will be following the outcome of the bill you introduced to the Legislative Assembly of Ontario.
-yes, finally someone with a bit of common sense.
-I appreciate this effort, but this does not ensure that municipalities will site turbines at distances that can safeguard people. Just have a look at the Town or Essex who allowed 450 metres prior to the GEA. Nor does it ensure that a proper cost benefit analysis is done before such projects are undertaken within a municipality or that the proponent are reputable businesses upon which residents can trust to follow through with their promises. Many are nothing short of snake oil salesmen
-I have to echo ruralgrubby here. Our township is very pro wind, for several stupid reasons. They were supportive of moratoriums eleswhere…just not in their township! Yeah, try try reasoning with that. Although restoring some local decision making is positive, industrial wind turbines do not belong anywhere…I want to see a bill introduced that says that.
-A very GOOD step in the RIGHT direction.
Keeping fingers crossed.
-This is a start at least. Thank you for this and I will follow with support.
Perhaps those at Queens Park will start listening to the people.
Wind Concerns Ontario – Making it way too easy for the politicians to shove Agenda 21/NWO down our collective throats.
If Sylvia Jones was so concerned about the GEA, why has it taken her so long to introduce a private members Bill?
The 2011 election campaign is now underway!
Agenda 21/NWO is almost complete
