Barb Ashbee claims she was a victim of wind turbine noise. She used to live near the Shelburne wind farm, where there are more than 100 turbines, but moved to the Orangeville area because of health concerns.
“We had heart palpitations, stomach problems, sleep deprivation and terrible cognitive problems. My husband actually had thyroid problems,” she said.
The report’s findings “sicken” Ashbee. “These people are supposed to protect our health,” she said. “I am stunned.”
Ashbee’s health problems have improved since she moved away from the farms but she fears for others. “I get so angry. There are so many sick people and they are shutting them out.”
