RESIDENTS of South Algonquin: Support the 10 year moratorium on Wind Energy developments
RES Canada Inc. and the Province of Ontario are in the early stages of planning the Whitney Wind Farm - a large scale wind energy facility (48 massive turbines) located entirely on crown land currently home to pristine forests and lakes and adjacent to Algonquin Provincial Park.

On October 16th 2008, the Council of South Algonquin Township passed a resolution calling for a moratorium on all wind energy projects in the Township for 10 years. The resolution passed with UNANIMOUS support. However, the developer, RES Canada Inc., remains committed to the project and the Province has expressed their "disappointment" with Council's decision.
We, the undersigned, ARE THE PERMANENT AND PART TIME RESIDENTS OF SOUTH ALGONQUIN TOWNSHIP.
We wholeheartedly support South Algonquin Township Council's wise and prudent decision for a ten year moratorium on wind energy development in the Township of South Algonquin.
