For immediate release – PECFN 

September 22, 2015

The Tribunal Hearing on Ostrander Point wind project booked for Sept 23-25 has been adjourned.

Due to ongoing disclosure issues related to Ministry of Natural Resources documents the Hearing has been adjourned for the second time. The new date for resumption of the hearing will be October 27-28 and 30.  

PECFN’s lawyer Eric Gillespie said that it is a big step forward in learning what the MNR experts thought about the development of this site.  He has been able to read some of Joe Crowley’s documents which show the degree to which the habitat of several Species at Risk was discussed.  There are many more documents to read.  He has also requested disclosure from Gilead Power.

“PECFN is disappointed at yet another adjournment”, said Myrna Wood, President, “in our ongoing fight to protect the PEC South Shore. However, we feel that we are beginning to get to the bottom of why and how this important natural site was threatened with destruction. We welcome full disclosure no matter how long it takes.”
