On July 10, 2013, the Ontario MNR published a notice on the EBR for Amherst Island. The project developer, Algonquin/Winlectric, requested a permit since their project “has the potential to adversely affect Bobolink, Eastern Meadowlark and Eastern Whip-poor-will habitat“, all of which are threatened. One has to ask, what part of green is a project that has these types of adverse effects?
APAI just issued bulletin #4 which exhorts people to write responses and send them to the MNR. No doubt APAI will have its own response as well.
