An appeal to an order to have wind turbines removed at the Chatham-Kent Municipal Airport continues to move through the federal process.

Renewable Energy company GDF Suez is arguing that the turbines don’t pose any danger to incoming or outgoing aircraft. But Transport Canada disagrees, and has ordered them removed by the end of the year.

According to a Transport Canada email sent to BlackburnNews.com, a board is being formed to review the company’s appeal and hear the government’s reasoning for the removal order.

The government says the board will be made up of one or more impartial representatives. There’s no word on when the board will be formed or when the hearing will take place.

And who are GDF Suez to tell Transport Canada what to do?

GDF Suez Canada and it’s president Mike Crawley, former president of both the Liberal provincial and federal parties, are stalling for time, waiting for the 2015 federal election.

A federal government led by Mike’s BFF Justin Trudeau will put this issue to bed once and for all.

When some one searches for his necessary thing, thus he/she desires to be available that in detail,
therefore that thing is maintained over here.
