In an effort to keep those concerned up to date on the efforts of Shawn and Trish Drennan on behalf of SWEAR (Safe Wind Energy for All Residents), we are issuing an update.
Click here for the documents on the History of the case.
On Nov 4, 2011, the Master denied our motion to compel the attendance of Dr. Arlene King. The Drennans were seeking to have Dr. King testify as to the public policy ramifications of Gag Clauses in wind company contracts and to answer questions concerning her report dated October 2010 on the potential adverse health effects of wind turbines.
Shawn and Trish Drennan on behalf of SWEAR appealed the decision to the Superior Court in June and received the decision on July 18th. Judge Mary Sanderson decided to overturn the Master’s decision and ordered Dr. Arlene King to appear to answer questions. This is one of the first Court wins regarding this matter.
Dr. Arlene King however, is still refusing to testify and has made a motion for Leave to Appeal at the Court of Appeal for Ontario. This process may take up to 3 months.
In the meantime we need to continue fund raising to continue our challenge of the Ontario Government and to take steps to protect our citizens from the negative impacts of Industrial Wind Turbines in our communities. The Wind Developers and the Ontario Government are watching this action very closely knowing that Industrial Wind Turbines are negatively affecting lease holders and neighbours of Industrial Wind Projects here in Ontario. Recent Scientific Research indicates that there are negative health impacts from the Turbines, however the Ontario Government has not completed scientific research on the health effects of Industrial Wind Turbines here in Ontario.
For those who have supported the efforts in the past, which have been successful, your support has been greatly appreciated. For those who are able to support us going forward, on behalf of our fellow citizens of Ontario, your support will also be greatly appreciated. This action should benefit all citizens that are living with or may have to live near Industrial Wind Turbines. All of Ontario needs to have “GOOD NEIGHBOURS PUTTING OUR NEIGHBORHOODS FIRST”
