Garnett Genuis Fighting Unnecessary Heartland Line
Sherwood Park resident Garnett Genuis is the Wildrose Party candidate in the Sherwood Park constituency. He’s been opposed to the unnecessary Heartland power line since it was first proposed over 4 years ago. Garnett has written columns in the Sherwood Park News opposing the line, he appeared at the Alberta Utilities Commission hearing last April in opposition to the line, and is now continuing to fight against this line during the current provincial election campaign.
Garnett appears in a short 1-minute YouTube video at this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sGR5zg6Lalw&context=C4ee244eADvjVQa1PpcFMq28sFBoa5_DFI1jHvXcTtHa1omuvTSpI= , discussing the Heartland line as well as providing a bit of information about himself. We think you’ll find the video both informative and entertaining.
Not only is Garnett, as the Sherwood Park Wildrose candidate, opposing the Heartland line, but Wildrose Party Leader Danielle Smith has also been strongly opposed to this line and other massive 500kV lines legislated in the controversial Electric Statutes Amendment Act (Bill 50) passed by the PC government in 2009.
Smith has promised, if the Wildrose Party forms the next government, to repeal this act and other legislation that has negatively affected Albertans’ landowner rights. She has also indicated that if the Heartland line proceeds, it should be buried whenever it runs close to residential areas, schools and daycares.
