    Wind turbines in Collingwood will create perfect storm
    Toronto Sun
    Talk about a wing and a prayer.

Pilots and community members are up in arms, fearing the turbines will not only pose a safety hazard to planes, they'll limit the growth of the airport and hurt the region's economy — just as tourism is growing. heir MPP says the massive towers — as high as the TD Centre — will intrude on airspace. Worse, they’ll be painted white. Hello? Is anyone thinking? Collingwood is in the snowbelt. Pilots landing in poor visibility will have difficulty seeing the turbines.
