I see that Robert Hornung, president of the Canadian Wind Energy Association (CanWEA), is sending letters to the editors of local papers to promote wind-industry business interests.
CanWEA is a registered lobby group that dismisses health, environmental and financial concerns that many from across this province and elsewhere are expressing.
Of course, one would not expect the wind industry to discredit its own product by exposing information that documents unfavourable effects from industrial wind turbines.
The information I see on wind turbines, Mr. Hornung, is not the same information you have put forward in your opinion piece so I will share some of the information you left out.
I see families who have become sick and who have had to leave their homes since the startup of turbines nearby.
I see neighbours having great difficulty selling a home in close proximity to turbines and even in areas where turbine projects are simply proposed.
I see my hydro bill just beginning its increase as I’m forced to cover the exorbitant rate for a small amount of intermittently generated wind power.
There is plenty of information to choose from. My personal choice is to go with the information that comes from people with no financial stake in the issue.
