Last year, West Grey mayor Kevin Eccles stood up for the people in his community and called for a moratorium on industrial wind power projects because of the damage they were causing to health and property values.

And now, Mr Eccles is running in the upcoming provincial election. For the Liberals. Which has meant a certain change of heart.

Here is Mr. Eccles’ letter from 2010

Now, the “new” Mr. Eccles, the Liberal candidate, says he can’t support a moratorium, that he believes in the Green Energy Act, and that he trusts the Ontario Ministry of the Environment and the Energy Minister. The story is here: http://www.owensoundsuntimes.com/ArticleDisplay.aspx?e=3289062
