"Do wind farms drive down the prices of nearby homes? That question is at the heart of a potentially precedent-setting two-day property value review, which began Tuesday in eastern Ontario."

 

 

The story for the link in the sidebar wouldn't open for me. Anyone else have a problem with it?

It seems curious that the "un-salebility" of affected homes was not included in the review. Would that not affect the outcome?

 

One could also conclude from the comments of the Canadian Wind Energy Association that the presence of wind turbines contributes to an increase in real estate values. It's all in the spin . . .

The article was most likely aboutt a wind farm and not a brop or agricultural farm so it was mostly likely posted and then reviewed.

Have a good day!

We take a lot for granted

EIGHT DAYS IN November 2019 taught us lessons that I hope we carry with us for some time. CN Rail train crews went on the longest rail strike in a decade and the ramifications of that strike were felt nationally — throughout agriculture and into other sectors as well. We have had grain service disruptions before, and we have dealt with them, but this was something we didn’t know would happen, and we didn’t foresee the ramifications to grain farming and agriculture until it was happening.
