Let Trillium Build Offshore Turbines
This project should really be a slam-dunk; that its in the state of legal limbo its in is testament to the sheer, crap-flying-out-the-end-of-the-pantlegs panic that gripped the Ontario Liberal Party in the run-up to the last election. There was never a significant Toronto-based anti-wind faction. LaForet never got traction until he took his act to the sticks. Polls from as late as 2009 showed general support for a turbine just off Scarborough, and the ones Trillium is talking about now are "located in the centre of Lake Ontario, beside the international border with the United States". So, no NIMBYS for miles and miles.
