Ontario Liberals put an election-hold on wind power

Ontario scraps offshore wind power plans -
It looks like the Ontario Liberals have put a hold on off-shore wind power projects for no other reason that to win a few NIMBY seats in areas where the wind power projects were to be built. The anti-wind power people have made numerous unsubstantiated claims, which especially hold no validity with the wind turbines being placed 5km offshore.
There are thousands of on-shore and offshore wind turbine installations around the world, especially in Europe, which have proven that there is no validity to the anti-wind power side's claims.

We need to start taking green energy seriously to reduce our reliance on energy sources that are actually harmful to the environment.
