Not a Willing Host

More than 70 Ontario municipalities have formally declared themselves Not a Willing Host to wind power generation projects. This action stemmed from remarks made by Premier Kathleen Wynne just days after she became premier, in which she said she would not force wind power projects on communities that don’t want them.



The Green Energy Act has since been repealed and municipal authority has been restored.
