WEST LINCOLN – A West Lincoln planning committee meeting turned into a marathon debate that was both heated and at times comical Monday night.
More than 500 people wearing bright red and bright green shirts packed South Lincoln High School to show their opposition or support for two proposed industrial wind turbine developments across west Niagara.
The developments would see 82 wind turbines built on private land to produce electricity under Ontario’s Green Energy Act and the issue has been hugely controversial across the western part of the region.
