Ostrander Point Wind Farm

In early July, the Ontario Environmental Review Tribunal released its decision to revoke the approval of a proposed 9 turbine wind energy project in Prince Edward County (or as I like to call it, the "turtles trump turbines" decision). To summarize, the tribunal held that the environmental concerns raised at the hearing (but not the human health concerns) were enough to defeat the proposed development. I think we can anticipate either an appeal, or a resubmission of a modified proposal.

The full text of the decision is appended below.
