After much debate at City Hall, the white wind-measuring box, that some have called an “eyesore”, will remain in the Scarborough Bluffs until 2012.
The Liberals have been attacked on the Green Energy Act and their support for wind farms. Scarborough-Guildwood’s Progressive Conservative candidate Gary Ellis speaks.
Gary Crawford’s opposition to the proposed wind turbine project in his ward is making him popular with local environmental groups. Wind Concerns Ontario, a coalition of dozens of anti-wind turbine groups from across the province, welcomes the Ward 36 councillor’s take on Toronto Hydro’s plans to erect the turbines off his ward’s shore
One of the ways to save polar bears from a melting climate, according to the Toronto Zoo, is for the city to become a chillier place.
Introducing ice energy to the city, the Zoo is showcasing a new system that replaces air conditioners with stored ice blocks. Using ice to reduce peak demands and stave off the effects of a changing climate in the Arctic. If the Zoo has their way, this could be the way of the future for Toronto.
Opponents of a proposed wind farm off the Scarborough Bluffs have adopted the old Bob Dylan folk classic, with their own spin, as a rallying cry: ‘the answer is not blowing in the wind.’
What was meant to be a symbolic step to halt wind turbines in Ontario has backfired on a local Scarborough community.
After city hall rejected the motion to place a moratorium on new wind turbines, Toronto will now do the opposite – promote wind power in the city with fervor.
Scarborough has an opportunity to become more than Toronto’s Bronx, known for crime and gangs.
With the Pan Am Games, a new Toronto mayor and green energy projects like wind turbines, by 2015 it could be a very different Scarborough from today.
There are two very different possibilities for our future.
