Our volunteer canvassers are out EVERY NIGHT and we are delivering paper petitions daily to the citizens of the North Gower area who will be affected by the proposed wind power generation project, should it be approved and constructed.
STATUS of the project: all large wind power project applications are on hold until Energy Minister Chiarelli announces the new application process, expected to be January. Prowind has told us they plan to reapply, once they’ve seen the new requirements.
KEY: community ownership and approval will be a factor. That’s why our Not A Willing Host effort has meaning: we will show that this is NOT a “willing host” community for very good reasons. We must speak up and take action: doing nothing results in nothing.
WHAT YOU CAN DO:
-attend the last public signing of the petition Saturday November 9, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Alfred Taylor Recreation Centre
-download the petition here NG-PETITION-final
The petition MUST have your signature on an actual paper document, and be witnessed; return it to us at PO Box 3 North Gower ON K0A 2TO or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for pickup
-email us for a petition to be delivered to you
-plan to attend the Not A Willing Host event in Toronto at Queen’s Park later this month, details to follow
-our online poll is still active for another day or two. Please have residents of Ottawa go to https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/LZSDL9N
The petition will be taken IN PERSON to the City Clerk at the City of Ottawa.
