A voice silenced: Mike McCann
October 11, 2018
When wind power developers roll in their Trojan Horse to communities boasting of multiple benefits such as more jobs, prosperity and a cleaner environment, one thing they fail to mention — and in fact argue against vehemently — is the loss in property value for those people whose homes are suddenly located inside industrial power projects.
Chicago real estate appraiser and consultant Mike McCann was someone who studied the property value loss phenomenon, and appeared before various legal tribunals and committees to talk about it.
Mr. McCann studied Ontario properties, too, and was one of the group of professionals we often called upon for advice.
Mike McCann died this week in Chicago, after a battle with cancer.
