Oil and Wind


Last month's guilty verdict against Syncrude in the deaths of 1,606 ducks at an oilsands tailings pond received international media coverage.

Meanwhile, little attention has been paid to 1,982 bird and bat deaths at Canada's second-largest wind farm, Ontario's Wolf Island Eco-Power Centre.

According to a monitoring report in May, the nearly 2,000 bird and bat deaths during the first eight months of the wind farm's operation involved 33 birds species and five bat species. No charges have been laid.

Frankly, I just love this attempt to tar with the same brush! Yuck yuk!
