Trillium Lakelands District School Board Supports Health Study

More here – Peterborough Examiner

A loud cheer went up from parents at last night’s Committee of the Whole meeting as the Trillium Lakelands District School Board voted in  support of Manvers Gone with the Wind’s request for the completion of an independent health study before any approvals are granted for a proposed wind project in the Manvers area.

The Trillium Lakelands District School Board passed the following motion at the Committe of the Whole: 

“That Trillium Lakelands District School Board  support in principle the Manvers “Gone With the Wind” Community Group in their endeavour to obtain an independent study of the health effects of fully operational wind turbine projects, prior to the advance of the issuance of any permits and the commencement of any projects.” 

This vote will be ratified at the regular board meeting in two weeks time.

  1. This is good news! Schools are generally not informed by the wind companies (except to promote their propaganda, of course), as was the case down here in Middlesex County for the Adelaide Wind project. 16 wind turbines in a 3km radius of the school, unburied collector lines to be strung along the side of the playground, and NO notification to the school or school board (let alone parents). Lucky for us, the Thames Valley District School Board was not impressed with this lack of notification, but of course the MOE thought it was just fine. You absolutely cannot rely on any level of government to look out for the health and safety of your children, and you have to pro-actively inform those that have been left out of the loop, including your school board.

  2. I see several “thumbs down” ratings on protecting hundreds of vulnerable children in a school from industrial intrusion. Are these people psychopaths (or perhaps merely Big Wind promoters or Liberal cronies)?

  3. All parents and school councils have the right to insist school boards demand further independent health studies before surrounding our children with industrial wind turbines.
    I recommend any community with a threat of Liberal industrial turbines coming to town- demand their school board to stand up to Ont gov’t. Dont Give Up!
