Press Release

                                                                                                           May 16, 2012

Dear COPA Flight Captains,
To distribute to your members,

Please watch this link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oEm-WpO6qjI&feature=youtu.be  and read the attached letter and then contact your MPP and MP to get them involved in raising the profile of the impact of Wind Farms on aviation. Use the information provided in the letter and the position paper included with it but put into your own words what you feel is necessary to turn around this significant issue.

Collingwood airport is just one example of the issue. With 7000 more turbines to be erected in Ontario alone, there are and will be other airports impacted by the lack of protection for aviation.
