An urgent message from the People First Republic Party of Ontario

Protecting the biodiversity of the entire South Shore area of Prince Edward County, Ontario by expanding the existing Federal and Provincial Parks/wildlife conservation areas and creating eco-tourism sustainable green jobs

BELLEVILLE, ON, Sept. 23, 2011 /CNW/ - Our Party wanted to thank those who organized and attended the Picton Townhall meeting on energy on Tuesday, September 20, 2011. It was an excellent turnout and we have been asked to clarify our party's position on the Ostrander Point Crown Land issue. Our party is dedicated to ensuring that the local citizens in our communities make the important decisions that affect the future of their community.

As indicated in this meeting last night by our party leader and local candidate, Mr. Trueman Tuck, the Ostrander Crown Land is not an appropriate location for nine environmentally destructive Industrial Wind Turbines. The Ministry of Natural Resources and the Dalton McGuinty Ontario Liberal Government should never have allowed the Gilead Power Corporation to be able to acquire this irreplaceable Important Bird Area [IBA] habitat in the first place.

Since April 2011, when this issue was brought to our attention, Trueman Tuck has been passionately and persistently advocating, as the local Peoples' Representative/Champion, that all existing Municipal, Federal and Provincial Crown Land within this IBA and historic marine shipwreck [NMC], including lands, water lots, islands and lighthouses be consolidated into an expanded Park/Conservation and National Marine Heritage Conservation area.

There are now over 5,000 acres of existing irreplaceable Municipal, Provincial and Federal wildlife habitat lands, water lots, islands and lighthouses which are already in the Crown's name at one level or another within our proposed expanded Parks/Conservation areas.

Trueman Tuck states, "The South Shore of Prince Edward County and Point Pelee are the two most important Bird Migratory areas in Ontario and need to be fully protected. In addition, the South Shore and Tobermory are the two most important Marine Heritage areas in Ontario and need to be fully protected as well. In fact, Tobermory has 22 wrecks and the South Shore and adjacent areas have over 200".

Trueman goes on to state that as your new MPP "I am fully committed, as is my party, to stopping the immediate and serious external threat of the environmentally destructive Industrial Wind Turbines not only for the Ostrander Crown Land Block, but also for the entire South Shore IBA. I now call upon all three government levels to immediately pledge their support in writing in order to make this proposal happen now".
