Media Advisory - Alternative Wind Energy Concert and Radio Show



    Hosted by Sarah Harmer and Sarah McDermott,
    Presented by Lake Ontario Waterkeeper and Queen's Radio CFRC

    Expert interviews, live musical performance, information and discussion.

    TORONTO, June 24 /CNW/ - As the world comes to Kingston to promote and
develop sustainable wind energy policy and projects, our own Wolfe Island is
providing a shocking example of a "business as usual" industrial growth model
of development that does not put the environment first. The Province of
Ontario, despite MNR and Environment Canada raising significant alarm, is set
to allow a large company to build a huge number of turbines in environmentally
sensitive areas on Wolfe Island.
    We will be interviewing experts and presenting the facts that the Ontario
Ministry of Environment has thus far ignored. Lake Ontario Waterkeeper and the
participants of this concert and radio show are all pro-wind energy. We
understand that wind is a critical part of our energy future. That is why
there is so much concern that it be done right, so that Ontarians can be proud
of the process and expert science determines the turbine scheme layout.
    The issue is with the scale of the project and the negative impacts on
Provincially Significant Wetlands, Threatened Species habitats, and bird
migration.
