Stephana’s Response to above article:
An award winning journalist like Monte Sonnenberg should assure equal space to all sides in reporting an event as well as assure accuracy of information. In “Mayor loses patience…” on Thurs., Feb. 16, Mr. Sonnenberg assassinated the character of the deputant by using inflammatory language meant to imply that her statements are untrue. A councillor is quoted as saying people in Simcoe are exasperated with “repetitive presentations” in spite of the fact each presentation ALWAYS brought new information. Norfolk Victims of Industrial Wind Turbines ARE residents of the community and Norfolk County and as such have a right to 10 minutes of courtesy and justice as is afforded to deputations dealing with culverts week after week.
It also behooves an award winning journalist to present accurate information: There are 38 IWTs in the Norfolk Erie Shores Wind Farm as well as the 18 IWTs of the Clear Creek/Cultus/Frogmore IWT zone which 70 residents in the 140 house community DECLARE are adversely affecting their lives and health. Travale’s explanation “that Norfolk Council has done all it can for her” does NOT address the fact that infrasound from IWTs disturbs sleep night after night and leads to health hazards and increased mortality according to a research paper from professor Alec Salt, Otolaringologist at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Missouri.Stephana Johnston, Clear Creek
