Bat-tered: Government Cancels Approval for Completed Wind Farm to Save Endangered Bat Species


Following the cancellation of 758 wind projects in Ontario, its government has further delighted locals with the decision to revoke approval for the (almost complete) Nations Rise project, at North Stormont, near Ottawa.
