Our local Council has a funny way of coming to a decision on various matters. Almost like a dance. Like dancing buffalo in a quaint tea shop, where every day is groundhog day, and the more things are torn down and destroyed, the more they stay the same.

There has been some debate as to the merits of the vote held in South Marysburgh last year, which showed 90% of ballots count for the ‘no turbines’ camp. Detractors point to the fact that there was only a 62% turnout, and there was no undecided option. Still, 90% of 62% of people who actually got off their butts to have a say, said no. Our local councillor, Barb Proctor, who initially wrote a letter to the Minister of Energy and the Minister of the Environment to support this 90%, now seems to be backing away from the people who elected her by recently voting against a motion to declare the Corporation of the County of Prince Edward is not a ‘willing host’ for IWT’s.
