SEAN MALLEN: Just about a minute left and another one – we talk a lot about energy issues on this program and wind power is one of them, and you also weighed in on complaints about health effects of wind power. Lots of people really strongly in this province believe that they’re feeling something bad. Again is there some need to do some better study on this do you think?
Dr Arlene King: Well again, there actually has been an awful lot of studies done on this issue by a lot of credible organizations. I mean Health Canada certainly has a position on this issue, the World Health Organization. There have been a lot of studies done in Europe. We have reviewed the literature extensively. I had a group of people assembled to review the literature on that issue and I certainly am convinced that there is no evidence of a link between adorous health outcomes and wind turbines, when properly regulated with the appropriate systems that are in place right now in Ontario by the Ministry of the Environment.
SEAN MALLEN: Okay, I’m sure we’re going to hear more about it in any case. I hear a lot from these people. Anyway, good to have you on the program, Dr King.
Dr Arlene King: You’re very welcome.
