Norfolk County wants to put itself at the forefront of a medical study into the effects of wind turbines. Former Green Party candidate, Stephana Johnston says half of the residents within 3 kilometers of the Clear Creek, Cultus and Frogmore wind facilities say their health is suffering from these turbines, it makes that area a prime spot for a study. Johnston says epidemiological research is being done by University of Waterloo into these health effects and we need to get involved.
Councillor Harold Sonnenberg says it’s evident that these people feel they’re suffering because of the turbines, so it’s something council needs to take a good look at. Mayor Travale will be writing to the doctor heading up the study to ask them to consider using our area.
