On a couple of occasions, I’ve written about Kingston’s new windy skyline in relation to the Wolfe Island wind farm . For months, I’ve wondered how the 86 wind turbines might appear from afar. Last week my questions were answered when I peered across the water, and counted at least 5 turbines – either complete or in some stage of construction. Although they’re a true testament to Kingston and Islands commitment to sustainable energy, these giants also stand for something a bit less savory. In that respect, the failure of elected officials to step in and ensure suitability has sullied the project for many Island, and some Kingston residents. What do you think? Is this progress, or reasonable grounds for a class action lawsuit? My first impression of the new view is positive.
