The Nation joins Multi Municipal Group as ‘unwilling host’

At their last council meeting on March 6, The Nation municipality signed on to the Multi Municipal Group opposing industrial-scale wind turbine projects, or are against aspects of the Green Energy Act.

The support comes after members of Save the Nation asked council to become part of MMG in February.

Julie Leroux, member of Save the Nation, said in an email that the group is happy the municipality signed on but wished it would have done so “proactively” without prompting.

She said the group is currently conducting studies to appeal the approval of the project.

“The changes we are hoping for when it comes to the Green Energy Act and industrial wind farms won’t happen on their own. They will come from public pressure,” added Leroux.
