GREY HIGHLANDS – A Grey Highlands woman wants her council to prod the provincial government into investigating health issues that she and more than a dozen others say are caused from living near industrial wind turbines south of Maxwell.
“I want council to write the Ministry of the Environment on behalf of all of us and say there are people who are suffering, that we have problems with this and I’m hoping their voice will carry some weight. How many people is the MOE going to ignore?” asked Virginia Stewart Love.
Last week’s plea was a follow up to a letter she wrote to council on April 27 signed by 17 people who detail health effects that they say began following production by the 11 wind turbines belonging to the Plateau Wind Project located along south of Maxwell along County Rd. 2.
The project began production in February of this year. Since then Stewart Love has made dozens of complaints to the MOE about pressure in her head and ears, vibration within her body, ringing in the ears particularly at night but sometimes during the day. read article
