Update on APPEC’s motion for stay against wind developer WPD — issued by Orville Walsh

Dear APPEC Supporters:j
As you know WPD said that it will start vegetation clearing for the White Pines project on Monday, March 14 despite having its REA suspended by the Environmental Review Tribunal.  APPEC has responded with a motion for a stay on any physical activity on the project site.

At this time the Tribunal has still not issued a decision on APPEC’s motion.  Other parties have indicated they also wish to have some input in support of our stay motion.  The Tribunal has allowed a few days this week for those submissions and replies.

Reply documents to the stay motion from the Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change indicate that WPD needs to obtain approval from the Director for a Storm Water Management Plan for the project. In addition WPD must give the Director 10 days written notice of its intent to start construction.  We believe that due to these conditions WPD will not be in a position to commence any activity until after March 19th.

We will continue to keep you informed on this important matter.

If you notice any construction activity on the project site please let us know.

Orville Walsh
President, APPEC
