ALNWICK/HALDIMAND TOWNSHIP – With a packed council chambers backing The Alliance for the Protection of Northumberland Hills’s presentation against two industrial wind turbine farms near Grafton and Centreton on the Oak Ridges Moraine, Alnwick/Haldimand Township councillors concurred during last week’s meeting.

In addition, councillors agreed to recommendations from the group that would halt further wind developments until health and safety issues are adequately addressed through study and regulation and will forward the resolution about a moratorium to all the municipalities in the Oak Ridges Moraine area, as well as to the government ministries involved in Green Energy Act approvals, plus a few other ministries.

“Council passed the resolution as presented,” said Deputy Mayor Ray Benns who chaired the meeting.

In part, it stated: “To place an immediate moratorium on approvals of industrial wind farms until such time as low frequency noise and infrasound from industrial wind turbines is reviewed and mitigated through the REA approval process and based on conclusive and independent clinical health studies that eliminate the potential of adverse impacts to health, safety and well being of the public.” Read article

  1. ya ya ya…heard this song before.. Hewitt and his cronies spiel this garbage to save face and then turn around and say unless the permits are approved and then these companies better kick into the vibrancy fund!!! So much for taking a stand.. Same old, same old.. not buying into it.

    • Hey Marnie,
      But he purports to be a Christian man.
      Doesn’t he have a Christian Business Ministry
      att: to his regular Financial Business?

      What do the church folk think?
      ……or should I bother asking?

      Ah – huh!
      I still have some communion money.

  2. Christian teachings state that you should “love thy neighbour as thyself”. Doesn’t that mean they should at least consider the effects this fiasco will have on their neighbours? But then again, they will put their own families at risk for money. Doesn’t seem like very Christian behaviour to me, better read what it says in the bible….oh ya, that is what it says, right in the ten commandments, so why is this even an issue?
