EZT councillors have added their voice to a call for an embargo on industrial wind turbine projects until more studies on their health effects become available.  In a recorded vote, five of the six EZT councillors voted in favour of the carefully worded resolution designed to show their support for a moratorium.

Coun. Clive Lawry was the only councillor to vote against the resolution.

The resolution requested the Province of Ontario “impose a moratorium on all industrial wind turbine projects currently being considered until such time as the Ministry of the Environment, Ministry of Health, Ministry of Economic Development and Ministry of Tourism have time to review medical, economic and environmental studies relating to industrial wind turbine development and undertake any additional studies or reviews necessary to create realistic guidelines to assure the health and economic well being of those living in proximity to industrial wind turbine developments.”   Read the entire article here
