‚ÄúThe FCM held the sustainable communities conference in Charlottetown,‚ÄĚ he said. ‚ÄúI 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.‚ÄĚ
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.
‚ÄúThe 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‚Äôre being financed and the treatment centre,‚ÄĚ he said. ‚ÄúI believe it was one of the highlights of the conference.‚ÄĚ
