MPP Laurie Scott brought the concerns of the Cham Shan Temple in Bethany to Queen’s Park on Wednesday, asking Premier Kathleen Wynne whether her government would let its energy policy chase out a planned $40-million Buddhist retreat.

“Premier, will the Buddhist dream be gone with the wind?” asked Scott, the Progressive Conservative representing Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock, referencing The Examiner’s front-page headline Tuesday.

“The government wants to allow its own interests to prevent millions of dollars being spent in a region that has high unemployment and is in desperate need of jobs.”

The Examiner broke the news Tuesday that temple leaders are considering shelving their ambitious plans in the face of several wind farm proposals that would encroach on their picturesque retreats in Bethany and Pontypool.
