In the Goderich newspaper, Carol Mitchell looks back on 2010 and says, “the province will continue to address concerns about the health effects of turbines.”
Several families in Carol Mitchell’s riding have told her of their debilitating symptoms since the start up of wind turbines near their homes. Mitchell has not helped anyone on this issue nor has there been any meaningful effort by this liberal government to help people who are sick and displaced from their homes.
On April 28th, 2010, MPP John Yakabuski asked for a moratorium on wind turbine projects until an independent, comprehensive study of the health and environmental impacts of wind farms was completed.
As the McGuinty liberal side of the house continually denied and dismissed health concerns, one of MPP Carol Mitchell’s own constituents stood up in the gallery that day to declare that she was evidence of adverse health effects from wind turbines and asked where her government was when she needed help; where Carol Mitchell was when she needed help!
Carol Mitchell was present at Queen’s Park on April 28th, but chose to retreat to a back room while the motion was being debated. She returned only after the public gallery had been cleared and then voted against the bill. “I hear them and I am listening,” says Mitchell in the Goderich article although Ms. Mitchell lacked the integrity to look into the face of her own constituent and to listen to her as she poured her heart onto the floor of Queen’s Park.
Carol Mitchell will hear this constituent and many others very clearly at election time.
