POWASSAN – Wind farm opposition says Health Canada’s wind turbine study is a flop, while turbines continue to be erected.
“The only true way for this study to have any impact whatsoever is for a full moratorium on all industrial wind developments in Ontario until the study is complete and the results are released,” said S.T.O.M.P. (Stop Turbines on Maple Hill Powassan) co-founder Anne Smith. “What we see as a reality is that the Liberals will force through thousands (as many as 6,000 more) of these industrial wind turbines between now and when the health study is completed. They seem not to care what the health and financial costs for Ontario taxpayers will be because they know that they will be out of power before the federal study is published.”
On July 10, 2012, Health Canada announced its intention to conduct research to evaluate the relationship between wind turbine noise and potential affects on human health, which is being carried out in collaboration with Statistics Canada.
Within Almaguin, there are wind projects in the works on Crown land in Laurier Township, just outside of Trout Creek, and on private property on Maple Hill Road in Powassan. Read article
