SK judge rules wind farms pose no credible danger to people

Supporters of a controversial wind farm project near Moosomin, Saskatchewan are breathing easier these days.

A Saskatoon judge has ruled that the courts will not stop the work that's being done on the $60 million Red Lily Wind Farm near Moosomin.

Area farmer David MacKinnon claimed the turbines at the 25 megawatt facility would be too close to homes.

He stopped work for six days this summer when he won a temporary injunction.

But a judge has since said there is no credible evidence to support the claims that the turbines would endanger people.

Work has since resumed on the site.
