MPP resumes call for moratorium on wind energy development

Lisa ThomsonBullet News
QUEEN’S PARK – Four private members’ motions to put a halt on wind energy development across the province were tabled in the Ontario Legislature by Huron-Bruce MPP Lisa Thompson recently.

The move re-introduces motions that were wiped off the slate of business when the Ontario Legislature was prorogued in October after the resignation of then-premier Dalton McGuinty.

The motions call upon the government to suspend all industrial wind turbine development in the province of Ontario until the federal health study is complete and the results are published, an economic viability study, an environmental impact study, and social health study has been completed.

“So much has happened since I tabled my motions last fall,” said Thompson. “We have found out through [Freedom of Information] documents from the Ministry of Environment that this Liberal government has known for years that there are significant health impacts from industrial wind turbines, but turned a blind eye and told the environmental officers who discovered these impacts to stand down,” she said, in a press release issued last week.

  1. “this Liberal government has known for years that there are significant health impacts from industrial wind turbines, but turned a blind eye and told the environmental officers who discovered these impacts to stand down,”
    What is more of a criminal act, that these specific people did this or that the powers to be today do
    not bring them to stand trial in the court of law and put them in jail? .
    I am disillusioned by thinking – the court of law – or – justice –

  2. I’ve said all along that these people involved with the GEA, including our present Premiere,should be criminally charged, and stand trial and convicted for crimes against the people of Ontario, rural Ontario in particular…..McWynnety was in the room when this plan was hatched and she is as much a part of it as the rest..As the fiberals will soon find out, their end is near, as all indications point to that..That gas plant scandal just boggles my mind as well..Time for a change……

    • “..criminally charged, and stand trial and convicted for crimes against the people of Ontario…”

      WARNING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      I have had a brief opportunity to look at the
      University of Waterloo Renewable Energy Technologies and Health
      “Quality of Life and Renewable Energy Technologies Study” survey.

      It is a 32 – page booklet; 8 legal size papers, folded in half, printed front and back. Also included is a cover letter (1 page front and back) signed by

      Phil Bigelow,
      Tanya Christidis,
      Siva Sivoththaman,
      Leila Jalali MedicalDoctor,
      Mahtab Kamali,
      Susan Yates,
      Steve McColl,
      Laurie Hoffman-Goetz,
      Jane Law,
      Shannon Majowicz,
      Veronique Boscart,
      James Lane,

      Also included is a Contact Information Form on which you can select Yes or No about whether you are interested in being contacted for participation in the second part of this study.

      Also included is a self-addressed postage-paid return envelope.

      I ADVISE YOU DO NOT PARTICIPATE IN THE UNIVERSITY OF WATERLOO STUDY

      Pass this message around.
      If you have filled out any part of the study, I advise do not provide it to anybody, and get copies made of it.
      If you have already sent your survey back,,,

      This research is unethical.

  3. Another issue left out of this IWT fiasco is the cronyism involved with OPA contracts. QP should investigate this issue!

  4. They all deserve prison time. Every politician, wind weasel, financial backer, employees of wind….all of them. they know this is a scam, and refuse to stop it. Premeditated abuse, theft, and psychological harm to literally thousands of people, millions worldwide. Time for a day of reckoning.
