Energy Minister Bob Chiarelli gave a few more details in an interview yesterday on what “significant” municipal support might mean. Turns out, anything. If a community accepts a contribution toward “infrastructure” or a “service” that will be deemed to be municipal support.

This will be important in smaller communities in Ontario which have already accepted money for things like signs, and contributions toward skating rinks or arenas, etc. “Vibrancy funds” are the wind biz way of contributing money to a community and if the community accepts that, it is “support.”
