Please Nova Scotia look before you buy into the sales pitch put out by the wind turbine hucksters,one place you can learn what results when you do can be found in Ontario where it will take years for taxpayers to pay for the huge mess our provincial government created in a futile attempt to go green:it resulted in a 46% increase in our power bills with another 36% still to come which has forced many small business owners to close up or move out of province,taken thousand of acres of prime farm land out of production and continues to kill birds at alarming rates,reduced the property value in their vicinity by up to 50% and has forced people to move from homes at a great financial loss even if they were lucky enough to find a willing buyer,saddled the provincial government with a 20 year contract to buy hydro at 46cents per kilo watt hr.weather needed or not, these and other problems have had no tangible or economic or environmental value has not resulted in the closure of one single coal or gas fired power plant as they are need as backup standby power,by contract the turbine power is given priority to our power grid resulting in surplus power produced during low use hours and to protect the grid Ontario hydro has spent millions of dollars paying U.S. power company's to take away the excess power that one should qualify for believe it or not!
Therefore please be very careful in this matter before you end up in a similar mess!

"Council passes on wind" the public should be able to see that council are the experts as they produce the product at their meetings in generous amounts with no need to involve any common sense input from anyone!
And if he happens to be a construction worker please tell him to stop using those empty cement bags for toilet paper!!
Remember all those trade missions Chretien made to China with a plane full of Canadian business reps.please be thankful that at least Steve attending the game in Boston will not result in your inability to buy a product made in Canada in most of our stores,without Chinese merchandise Wall mart would be out of business!
