Idiot Wind: News from CanWEA

North American Windpower: CanWEA: Ontario Wind Energy 'Can Never Assume Community Support':
Ontario's wind energy capacity has grown dramatically over the past five years. Despite this success, the province's wind power market has been plagued by myths and misperceptions, which, if left unchallenged, will prevent the further growth of wind energy in the province, Robert Hornung, president of the Canadian Wind Energy Association (CanWEA)
Point #1, from the North American Windpower Article:
1. Stay well-informed. "Opponents say wind energy is costly," Hornung noted. However, according to a report from the Ontario Energy Board, 45% of the rise in Ontario electricity prices can be tied to the building of nuclear units, while only 6% of the increased cost can be attributed to wind energy. "Nonetheless, the perception persists,” Hornung said.
No; the OEB's Market Surveillance Panel didn't say that.

Greenpeace sorta said they said that

I replied with this: Dead for Left: Greenpeace has a new lie

The informed should respond to CanWEA in the appropriate manner:
