The Township of Melancthon is being forced into court because the Chinese wind turbine company seems to feel none of the rules apply to them.
'Back in March, however, Dufferin Wind informed Melancthon council that it planned to temporarily store its wind turbines at Strada Aggregate’s facility in Melancthon.
According to Hill, council determined that wouldn’t comply with the township’s planning rules. Melancthon officials informed Dufferin Wind that the storage plan would require a zoning or Official Plan amendment.
Roberts said Dufferin Wind, which is owned by a North American subsidiary of China Longyuan Power Group Corporation Limited and Farm Owned Power (Melancthon) Ltd., aims to support local businesses whenever possible.'
Now why would our “local farmers” want to take their own municipality to court?
And why would Strada be a party to this?
And it would appear the local business Dufferin Wind is supporting is the legal profession.
