From Randy Pettapiece, MPP:
Last week, my colleague MPP John Yakabuski tabled a bill entitled Energy Referendum Act, 2015.
If passed, this bill would mandate that local municipalities hold a referendum before large-scale renewable energy projects are approved so that residents are the ones who decide if these projects will go forward.
The bill can be viewed at: http://ontla.on.ca/web/bills/bills_detail.do?locale=en&Intranet=&BillID=3597.
Forced industrial turbines have been a serious issue in our communities, and I support MPP Yakabuski’s efforts to return decision making powers to municipalities and residents.
If you would like to voice your support for this bill, I have attached a copy of a petition that you can sign. I will be introducing all completed petitions in the Ontario legislature to send a strong message to the government.
Please return original copies of the petition to my office: 55 Lorne Avenue, Unit 2, Stratford, Ontario, N5A 6S4.
The petition can also be accessed on my website: www.pettapiece.ca/petitions.
