  1. Maybe this is a blessing of more to come? Wishful thinking but I ‘am sure the windees will just dish out the money and repair. Maybe there is warranty on the structure? How common is this? Will we ever know?

  2. It seems to have happened overnight, and locals said this morning around 8 AM the area was not cordoned off, no emergency vehicles were there and the wind techs were only just arriving! That lack of response is frightening.

  3. It seems this wind turbine was being held up by David Livingston’s testimony in the gas plant scandal trial.

  4. Kinda resembles the Ontario economic future.
    I fear for my kids future and if they can afford kids theirs also.

  5. ” for a criminal investigation to take place a reasonable expection that a crime has been committed is needed. What crime do you suspect? What evidence do you have that a crime may have been committed?

    Families including children are being harmed, threatened to be harmed, forced to leave their homes, properties stolen, contracts traded internationally on what is known to be false information, collateral damages ignored, Ontario’s and Canada’s licensing authorities with help from their legal counsellors recklessly declare, they don’t care! the Ontario Ministry of the Environment & Climate Change is “asleep at the wheel”, the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms is being dishonoured, and “the honourable” Dalton McGuinty’s emails were allegedly successfully deleted.

  6. Please see the following link from Engineers Journal (Ireland). This is the latest research on infra sound and industrial wind turbines. http://www.engineersjournal.ie/2018/01/23/ilfn-infrasound-low-frequency-noise-turbine-health/

    Please note the following published at the end of the above article. Why are Engineers Ireland pointing to a decision made by a government agency in Australia?

    “The opinions expressed in this article are the authors’ own and do not represent the views of Engineers Ireland. For details of the Australian Administrative Appeals Tribunal Decision into the effects, if any, of ILFN on human health, please read the following document (PDF): waubra-and-acnc-decision. The section of the Australian decision that deals with Prof Alves-Pereira’s testimony is on pages 123-124.”

  7. Ages ago our friend taught us that lawyers shouldn’t mess around in tax court. Because taxes pay judges’ salaries.

    Recently in Oz an administrative tribunal was tasked with judging weather the Waubra Foundation work constitutes Charity activities. Lots of evidence was reviewed.

    For the purposes of the administrators they were satisfied that the adverse effects of living in the environs of industrial wind turbines represent plausible pathways to myriad diseases. Maybe this seems like a no-brainer to you.

    Try going back in time. For example, to the year 2009, to the Ontario Legislative Assembly Committee hearings about the green energy and the green economy Act.

    Ms. Laurel Broten acting for the Crown apologized to some Ontario victims who’d been forced to leave their homes because of the development and operation of some industrial wind turbines. Specifically Ms. Broten observed “the grief” they had been caused.

    Acknowledging that grief hardly scratched the surface …
