Endangered Species Wins Against Turbines

TORONTO, June 6, 2016 /CNW/ - The endangered Blanding's turtle has come out ahead in its race to protect the species and its habitat in Prince Edward County. The Ontario Environmental Review Tribunal ruled today that the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change permit related to proposed industrial wind turbines on the Ostrander Point crown lands should be revoked. "This is a great outcome for everyone involved and for the environment" said Myrna Wood of the Prince Edward County Field Naturalists, the appellant. "It's taken some time, but with this result the effort has clearly been worthwhile" said Eric Gillespie, legal counsel.
