Don't Give Up on us NIMBY's

 Don’t give in to energy NIMBYs - thestar.com

"It wasn’t supposed to be this way. In 2009 the premier boldly declared that “NIMBYism will no longer prevail.” ...
In Mississauga local activists again appear to hold the high cards. Their inspiration is the successful termination of a 900-megawatt gas-fired plant proposed for neighbouring Oakville. Affluent opponents of that $1.2-billion initiative used petitions, mass demonstrations, sympathetic celebrities (including a paid appearance by environmental crusader Erin Brockovich) and prominent local politicians to crush the project."

Nope.  The fight was being fought years before a plant for Oakville was even proposed.
Years before 2009 too.
The City of Mississauga had fought it all the way to the OMB prior to the Oakville plant being announced.

or newspapers.
