Wind turbines in Collingwood will create perfect storm
from Toronto Sun
Talk about a wing and a prayer. As if the soaring cost of wind energy weren't enough, a plan to put 152-metre (500-feet) tall wind turbines next to Collingwood Regional Airport is just plain dumb. Pilots and community members are up in arms, fearing the turbines will not only pose a safety hazard to planes, they'll limit the growth of the airport and hurt the region's economy — just as tourism is growing. heir MPP says the massive towers — as high as the TD Centre — will intrude on airspace. Worse, they’ll be painted white. Hello? Is anyone thinking? Collingwood is in the snowbelt. Pilots landing in poor visibility will have difficulty seeing the turbines.
