Interesting Local News Last Week in South Georgian Bay

There was lots of news this past week to get the juices churning.  Here’s a quick round up with my own take added.
Collingwood Connection:  Mushroom Farm Proposed for the Collingwood Grain Elevators
On the surface, this one really caught my attention.  Innovative! 

Toronto Star:  Neighbours Suing Neighbours:  Potentially Precedent Setting Lawsuit Regarding Wind Turbines 
Now this is going to be interesting to watch unfold.  I say three cheers for John Wiggins suing WPD.  Not so sure about suing the neighbours though.  

The Enterprise Bulletin:  Rally Planned To Support Admiral Development 
So let me get this straight.  A (likely large) group of citizens are going to rally to essentially send a message that says to the Town council, “we support you in spending hundreds of thousands  of our tax dollars to break and bend rules for a private business interest.   Hooray!”  How odd.

The Blue Mountains Courier Herald:  Telfer Comes Back With New Ideas for Thornbury Village 
This one has been pretty controversial as citizens debate how the village should grow.  

The Meaford Express:  Meaford Proposes Heritage District Now 
Yay Meaford.  Wish you’d thought of this BEFORE the Harbour Moose got demolished.
