The Eastern Fields Wind Project, slated primarily for the St-Bernardin area, with one wind turbine to be located in Champlain Township, has been cancelled by the Ontario government.
“Save the Nation”, a group of citizens opposed to the project, sent a brief email to media earlier today.
“After fighting this project for three years, we are thrilled and relieved by this announcement,” the group says.

The group also sent a link to the list of similar projects to be cancelled: Large Renewable Procurement and Feed-In Tariff Contracts
But the citizens group notes, “Unfortunately, the Nation Rise wind project opposed by our friends and neighbours in North Stormont is not on the list of projects to be cancelled. We are hoping for an announcement to be made in the near future. In the meantime, the group Concerned Citizens of North Stormont must continue with their legal battle. They need funds – please help if you can. Visit their website for donation information. http://
The note concluded with a message of thanks.
“Thanks to all who have fought this project. Things changed because you got involved – it is a community victory! We will keep you informed if other action is required.”
