January 2012 – Municipal World publishes an article by Paul Manning on Renewable Energy in Ontario

Ontario is  the leading jurisdiction in North America to ditch coal-fired electricity generation in favour of renewable energy. It has come at a price and not without controversy. Streamlining has reduced the number of approvals required for renewable energy development and has also reduced the opportunities for third-party challenge. Nonetheless, the approvals process remains burdensome and NIMBYs and some municipalities  remain resilient in their opposition. This article  highlights some of the main issues and recent challenges. The article is published  in the January 2012 issue of Municipal World and is, itself, a streamlined version of a paper given by Paul Manning at the Law Society of Upper Canada last year.
