NORTH PERTH — An Atwood-area farmer called police last Tuesday in an effort to get Invenergy Canada surveyors off his land.

Koos Wilting said he received correspondence from Invenergy Canada stating the company’s intention to survey Wilting’s three parcels of land. Wilting’s lawyer responded to the company, writing they wouldn’t be permitted to do so. This correspondence went back and forth for about a month to a month and a half.

On Tuesday, May 8, Invenergy Canada representatives arrived at one of Wilting’s properties. “They visited the house after,” said Wilting. “We just talked. We came to the conclusion that we disagreed.”

Wilting said his lawyer had advised him he could contact the authorities should surveyors show up and not wish to leave. So he telephoned the police and gave them the cell phone number of one of the Invenergy representatives. An officer called the representative and they spoke by phone.

Wilting says the group then proceeded to his third property. He called police again, who attended the scene.read article
