Greg Schmalz – S.T.O.P. ( Saugeen Shores Turbine Operation Policy )
Below is our report summarizing week one health and noise complaints that we have been made aware of. These were presented and read at our Council meeting just past. For 3 straight days the CAW/CEP turbine has not been running. Still no communication with the residents who have experienced serious health effects has occurred. It has now begun again.
Apparently the residents have been officially designated a protest group by the CAW/CEP. It appears, according to posts on your website, that the CAW has a new National Policy that they do not communicate with protest groups according to spokesperson Ken Bondy. Is this the treatment Canada’s new, soon to be named, CAW / CEP National Superunion would expect from the organized employers like the big three auto manufacturers, Air Canada and Global to name just a few?
Or are the residents of Saugeen Shores, like all wind turbine impacted citizens across Ontario, being tossed into the vicious circle of entrapment without remedy that is the Ministry of the Environment’s dead end complaint process? File a complaint, CAW cc’s MOE, turbine’s performance deemed to be OK, case closed. Letting the MOE handle complaints without scrutiny, accountability nor policy to deal with health complaints is akin to allowing the NRA sole power to investigate firearm misuse.
Premier Wynne you are failing in your duty to protect our health and peaceful enjoyment of our property which are our Charter rights. We have tried to communicate with you but to no avail. We the citizens of Ontario demand you act to end this social injustice.
