Statement from the Cochrane Board of Trade, June 24, 2015
"Where is the support for our Northern way of life when it is constantly being threatened by decisions made at Queen’s Park? A cogeneration biomass plant is set to close in Cochrane, Ontario and it will cause undue hardship on our business community. Misidentification of Cochrane Power as a NUG is the root of the problem and we need our wise leaders to come together to find a resolution to save Cochrane Power. If not, then the closure of Cochrane Power on July 11, will result in a chain reaction that will threaten the infrastructure of our community, increase the carbon footprint of our Forestry plants, bury a renewable, environmental waste product and last but not least, cause loss of jobs. Northern Ontario support our fight to savecochranepower.com and let your voice be heard."
