BTW nothing personal I am just asking you a honest question.

No one's saying the law doesn't apply to them. The point is that Industry Canada and the Cabinet interpreted the law in such a way that Wind was compliant with the law. The CRTC and the court interpreted it the other way. The law is rarely ever so clear cut that someone couldn't argue the other side of it. Wind interpreted the law themselves, rolled the dice and it's been working for them so far.
