Our communities are deeply concerned about the negative impacts these projects would have on the area. We need your help expressing opposition to these industrial developments. Below, we have provided a number of resources and tools to help you voice your opposition to these projects.
what you can do
NON-CONSENT FORM -
DO NOT CONSENT TO TURBINES IF A NEIGHBOUR HAS SIGNED A LEASE
As part of the points system, 75% of abutting landowners must sign a Consent Form for a proponent to successfully win a contract under LRP II. The proponents typically offer cash incentives for signatories of these agreements. In the past, the IESO has refused to share this data; therefore we must have our own to ensure an honest process. Since we don’t know the exact location of each proposed IWT site, we are urging ALL non-participating land owners in North Frontenac and Addington Highlands to read up on property devaluation and IWT impact on neighbours before signing any Consent Forms.
If you wish to actively refuse consent and you own property in North Frontenac and/or Addington Highlands Townships, please sign the on-line Non-Consent Form by clicking the button above.
Alternatively you can find a form to print and mail here.
MAKE A DONATION TO BEARAT
We are fighting very determined multi-billion dollar companies. Your financial support is extremely appreciated and needed!
Your support will be used for ground operations (creation of signs, etc.), legal and strategic counsel, provincial lobbying and more.
WRITE TO THE IESO AND POLICY MAKERS
There is very little community support for Industrial Wind Turbines in Addington Highlands or North Frontenac.
North Frontenac Council voted to unanimously declare itself an Unwilling Host. Addington Highlands Council voted 3-2 in favour of the Projects, but it in no way should be interpreted by the IESO as representing “community support.” 81% of surveyed residents oppose the proposed projects, according to survey findings accepted by Addington Highlands Council.
Click the button below to send a message to the IESO and the Premier to bypass Addington Highlands, where the only existing support appears to be bought and paid for.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world; indeed it's the only thing that ever has.
