Bob Runicman represents the Thousand Islands and Rideau Lakes in the Canadian Senate. Recently he introduced a motion calling on Ontario to place a moratorium on more turbines between Wolfe Island and Prince Edward County, including on Amherst Island.
The Senate voted unanimously to back this motion. While it makes for a nice sentiment, the resolution won’t have any significant effect, as the government of Ontario is in control of these projects. Still, it was nice to see that we obtained somebody’s attention.
