TORONTO, Ont. – Just ahead of the Annual Meeting of The Canadian Wind Energy Association, experts from North American and Britain have visited an international symposium on the adverse health affects of industrial wind turbines.
The Society for Wind Vigilance will host the meeting this weekend in Picton, Ont.
Based on reports of health issues among people living close to industrial wind turbines, the society is calling for a clinical study and wants the Ontario government to ban further projects until a study is done.
The province maintains there are no adverse health affects from the giant turbines, however, it said it will review the latest evidence from around the world.
The Canadian Wind Energy Association begins its annual meeting in Montreal on Monday.
