According to the land registry office in Orangeville (documentation available on request), six homes in Dufferin County have been purchased by Canadian Hydro Developers after serious complaints; most recently June 26th, 2009 the Ashbee home.
Before these families could escape the nightmare of their unliveable homes, they had to agree to sign strict nondisclosure contracts (gag-orders) to protect the wind company. This wind company has spent over $1.75 million dollars clandestinely buying out these six families yet they still try to claim there were no complaints.
This list of residents is not yet conclusive.

Why is this happening?
Industrial Wind Turbines were allowed to be sited too close to residences. This caused severe noise and adverse health affects including cardiac arrhythmia, sleep disturbance, fatigue, increased stress levels and loss of cognitive function.
Their homes became unfit for human habitation. The purchases by the wind developer are an admission that wind turbines have created health issues that impact residents.
Unfortunately, the wind industry and the McGuinty government have failed to publicly acknowledge or act on health issues and the pleas for help from the families impacted. This government is pushing this agenda with full knowledge of the existing problems and the potential for many more going forward. Meanwhile the McGuinty government refuses to conduct proper health studies.
