Canadian Bio Pellet Plant Moves Forward with Cash from Provincial Government – 85-100 Jobs Coming to Ingleside Ontario – January 20, 2010

Stan and Dan Stasko have 5.3 Million reasons to smile about today as MPP Jim Brownell and members of the Ministry of Northern Development and Mines had a press conference at Quinn’s Inn to announce substantial funding and moving ahead of the Wood Pellet Plant in Ingleside Ontario that will lead to 85-100 good paying  jobs in the area.

“Our government is working hard to restore the competitiveness of the forest sector and help the communities that depend on it. We are providing a boost to the province’s forest sector, supporting the local economy and helping to secure good jobs here in eastern Ontario.”

– Michael Gravelle, Minister of Northern Development, Mines and Forestry

Canadian Bio Pellet will definitely make large contribution to our community, our workforce and our economy,” said Stormont, Dundas and South Glengarry MPP Jim Brownell.  “I am very pleased to welcome this leader in bio-energy and biomass products, and to continue to promote sustainable industry in this region.”

“The support of the McGuinty government was instrumental in our decision to choose Ingleside as the location for our innovative facility. I look forward to seeing our vision for the company realized.”

– Stan Stasko, President, Canadian Bio Pellet Inc.

The plant is expected to infuse over $60 million dollars into the local economy.

It’s good to see good green technology sprout in our riding.  What do you think Canada?

  1. Yet another example of MPP Jim Brownell’s commitment to our riding. It is because of his ability to successfully promote our area that real jobs will be coming. It is especially good news to see the investment of the Provincial Government going into sustainable, green energy that is carbon neutral. A positive step towards protecting our environment and leading the way of the future.
    Job well done!

  2. I am a resident of Ingleside and have concerns about the proximity of the plant to
    2 schools, a seniors’ center, and single and multi-family homes. The Ministry of the Environment
    may follow all the standards, but there is no other facility in the world that is within a half- kilometer
    and upwind from a residential area. Noise and exhaust levels are my concern as well as the flammability of the waste and other materials e.g. sawdust.

  3. Yet another waste of taxpayers money……no one remembers the 3 big pelleting plants that Shell Oil and the provincial government had set up in the 1980’s and were torn down years later due to the plants not making any money….
