OPP in Haldimand County believe the vandals struck the Summerhaven Wind farm project overnight Friday, painting a disassembled tower, setting a fire and causing about $60,000 damage.
As the article notes, the turbine is near where MOE workers removed an active but currently unused bald eagles several weeks back to make way for an expansion of the project. Last week local first nations protested the removal.
While this vandalism appears to be the first act of its kind, last summer an employee with one of wind companies was the subject of death threats. Police investigated, but it looks as if nothing came of it.
