Windmills signal coming battle

To the Expositor:

Well the windmills are going up at McLean’s Mountain. So people who were against this should prepare for a big fight. If we see our hydro rates skyrocket in the near future, people on the Island should file a class action lawsuit against Northland Power and also the UCCMM (United Chiefs and Councils of Mnidoo Mnising) because there are just in there for the money. They do not have to worry about their hydro bills because if they make the mistake make them pay for it. They shove these windmills down our throats without thinking about the consequences they may face. They were blinded by the dollar signs and if people have to go province-wide, they should do so. There are a lot of people who are against these windmills. Some of them had to give up their properties to get away from noise or got sick from these windmills and no compensation.

I believe some people may say it’s too late, but it’s never too late. Get the compensation that you deserve from them because you have the right. A lot of people on the Island are living on fixed income and that’s why we have a drug problem. People are just trying to make ends meet and they will do anything just to make a fast buck, even if it means breaking the law.
