Endangered species successfully challenge renewable energy developers
from Fogler Rubinoff
In a unanimous decision, the Ontario Court of Appeal overturned the decision of the Ontario Divisional Court and sent to the Environmental Review Tribunal the matter of whether the Ministry's Renewable Energy Approval for a 9 turbine windfarm in Eastern Ontario should be revoked. The Court affirmed the ERT's finding that the BLanding's Turtle, an endangered species globally and in Ontario, would suffer serious and irreversible harm from the windfarm.
