SUMMERSIDE  - More than 60 delegates attending the recent Federation of Canadian Municipalities Conference in Charlottetown were impressed by the strides the City of Summerside has made in green projects, says Deputy Mayor Bruce MacDougall.

“The FCM held the sustainable communities conference in Charlottetown,” he said. “I was on the ad hoc committee when it was being formed and I had suggested when they were looking for something green and sustainable, they take a side trip to Summerside to look at our windmills, our programs and how we are dealing with things.”

MacDougall said delegates from across Canada took the city up on the offer and spent a day in Summerside visiting the wind farm and waste water treatment facility and how these affect the city.

“The following day, it was amazing the amount of people that stopped me and went on about how the windmills were set up and how they’re being financed and the treatment centre,” he said. “I believe it was one of the highlights of the conference.”

    Is it just me or does this sound made up . I'm pretty sure many communities across this country have windmills and water treatment plants. If this is the highlight of this conference then there are more municipalities then just Summerside that have issues. When you need a pat on the back and no one thinks you deserve one........just pat yourself on the back....right Bruce
