Picton The Environmental Review Tribunal will re-convene at Demorestville Town Hall on Wednesday, September 2 at 10 am. This extension of the Ostrander Point Appeal is in response to the Ontario Appeal Court’s direction on the issue of remedy to Gilead’s planned destruction of the Blanding’s Turtle habitat at Ostrander Point. Members of the public are welcome and encouraged to attend. “Our presence will emphasize to the ERT panel, Gilead representatives, the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change and their legal teams that Ostrander Point is the worst place for wind turbines” commented Myrna Wood, PECFN president.

In the meantime RIVERWALK, the PECFN fundraiser scheduled for September 5 at Mill Falls House B&B is fully subscribed. Fund raiser Cheryl Anderson is thrilled with the response to proprietor Sacha Warunkiw’s invitation to stroll through his beautiful property and learn about the area’s history and natural features. “Sacha’s generosity is amazing”, says Anderson “and his property is truly a gem. I am so please to be able to introduce it to people.”

Fund raising continues. PECFN is still in arrears to their legal team and the Alliance for the Protection of Prince Edward County will soon be involved in a new ERT appeal regarding the recently announced White Pines project in South Marysburgh and Athol. The two groups will host an OLD TIME COUNTY PIG ROAST on Friday October 2 at Hillier Creek Estates Winery. Celebrations by Linda May will cater the event and Grandpa’s Good Time Gang will entertain. This promises to be fun evening in a delightful venue. Guests are requested to come in their best County Country gear! Tickets will be available soon at .
