Councillors’ motion re Enerdu passed by Town Council in a 7-3 vote

Shaunby Shaun McLaughlin

At the Committee of the Whole meeting last night, Council members voted 7 to 3 to support a motion I drafted in consultations with like-minded Councillors. It calls on Council to formally withdraw any implied support for the Enerdu generating station expansion. Further, the motion asks staff to inform the Enerdu proponent, the Premier of Ontario and four provincial ministers of the decision. Council also supported a motion from Councillor Abbott to re-examine the water level in the Mississippi River upstream from Almonte in the face of unexpected heavy summer rains that are flooding the fair grounds. His motion coincides with a final report from the Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists about adverse effects of the water level on the Appleton Wetland.
