Anti-Turbine Families Can Suck It Up

There's no way you are going to initiate a legal action without having been told what the costs might be if you lose.  And if your case is a constitutional challenge based on a "novel reading of the law", you have almost certainly been told in addition that the chances of success are not large.  These people are just trying to get out of paying the money they owe.  I have no sympathy for them.  Nor, I suspect, will the judge.

Whilst I agree that anyone initiating such a undertaking must be prepared to loose and should be aware of possible costs involved I find you comments a little harsh. One must be aware that this is a David and Goliath situation where rural residents have NO recourse but such action when corporations decide that their back yards are an ideal site for such industrial turbines, Municipal zoning and bylaws, and indeed individual and community objections are deemed irrelevant by the Provincial legislation promoting such part time 'green' generation, I often wonder what urban folks would say if their local zoning bylaws were suspended in such a cavalier fashion.
