Speakers at rally hope for more high-paying jobs in area

Despite some snowy weather, hundreds of people braved cold weather this weekend to show support for World Energy GH2’s proposed wind-to-hydrogen megaproject.

The project aims to build hundreds of wind turbines in the area, along with a hydrogen production facility in Stephenville.
