An Award For NIMBYISM

From Pierre Poilievre:

Ms. Jane Wilson’s [diamond jubilee] medal recognized her work, both locally and across Ontario, in raising awareness of health and safety concerns for those living near industrial wind turbines. She has been a powerful advocate for rural residents and is currently the President of Wind Concerns Ontario.

I've written about Jane on occasion.  She took over from John LaForet when he moved on after the last provincial election.  My opinion of her and WCO is that they are engaged in the worst sort of NIMBYISM; therefore my opinion of this award is that it is the worst kind of pandering.

Don't put no stinking gas fired power plants in my Liberal riding.

What do you have to do to avoid getting the medal?
