Almost two years ago, the think tank here at Falling Downs had this to say about the industrial wind turbine that the Canadian Auto Workers union was planning to erect in the resort community of Port Elgin.
We concluded our appeal with these words; "...do the right thing, be a good neighbour in the community, and scrap that wind turbine."
Did they listen?
Of course not!
So today they face the wretched spectacle of public meetings and front page media coverage, with one pissed off neighbour after another reciting a litany of complaints into the public record.
Instead of backing down and generating goodwill in the community, they forged ahead and gave themselves and the labour movement in general a giant black eye.
Nice work, imbeciles!
