Wind Farm Regulatory Hearing Begins Thursday

A community group will voice their concerns before the provinces regulatory board during a hearing set to begin Thursday. The Friends of South Canoe Lake are opposed to a massive wind farm near New Ross. The group is challenging Chester council’s decision to enter into a development agreement with the three proponents behind the $200 million wind farm. Minas Basin Pulp and Power, Oxford Frozen Foods and Nova Scotia Power want to build 34 turbines stretching between Vaughan and New Ross. The board begins two days of hearings on the project May 30 in New Ross.
