Lawyer Says Wind Farm Ruling a Success

Story by Dave Richie, Blackburn News

The lawyer representing the appellants in the Kent Breeze Wind Farm hearing says headway in the fight against turbines has been made.  Eric Gillespie, counsel for Chatham-Kent Wind Action and Katie Erickson, says the tribunal’s acknowledgement that industrial turbines can harm human health is a big step forward.

“I think it’s fair to say that the case has advanced the concerns of people regarding industrial wind turbines quite a considerable distance,” says Gillespie. “While it hasn’t achieved the ultimate outcome, it appears to be a very large step forward.”

Gillespie says new information has come to light from the Ontario Ministry of the Environment, through a Freedom of Information request.  He says it could provide ammo to appeal the decision.
