    • Love your idea anonymous!
      I’ve been thinking / dreaming of a similar plan, to acquire one of those sound cannons, used by police, to park in front of my offending neighbours’ home, in the wee hours of the am, at times when I’ve been unable to sleep due to their Turbine noise.
      It’s only fair, if we can’t sleep, the turbine hosts don’t deserve to sleep.

      • Douglas….Thinking about having a train whistle installed in my car and going for late night “drives”! Since WE can’t sleep anyway….. might as well make SOME use of the time! Sound like a plan?? Maybe we can go for a “drive” together. At least we’d have some company!

  1. I read about a “burp” button on those jacked up car boom box systems. If someone has a kid with such a car, that could be parked at edge of protest, facing the authorities. Play back a little turbine noise at 100 dBA with the burp button depressed, stand behind the amps/speakers and aim emissions toward the authorities. See if they mind.

    Then if they write a ticket or arrest anyone for that “offense”, when ILFN is supposedly so harmless, any claimed assault could be used to show that turbine noise IS an assault…and the law confirms it by charging an offense when it is aimed at them.

    Should be safe from any actual charges I assume. Because so far I don’t think anyone in Ontario has been charged with the offense of assault with ILFN with intent to cause nausea or vertigo ~

    Purely hypothetical exercise. But……….

  2. Can people bring regular vehicles to this? Put a sign or something on the side. Or even no sign and drive with everyone to increase the numbers.

    • I’m definitely bringing my ‘regular vehicle’. People are coming from diverse areas across the province. If this protest were limited to farm vehicles only, they would have had to leave yesterday!

    “Chambers of Commerce Falsely promote Windpower (might be repeated in your local)”
    What position on IWTs does your local Chamber take?

    this information needs to be known for all areas in Ontario.

      • And some stuff just happens – it sets your soul free.
        Let’s hope they don’t have ‘dry mouth’……….yuck!

        ‘[excerpt] Hewitt is now dispersing the money around the county. Eight organizations in all are in line for $10,000 donations.

        “The intent is to provide the community an evening beyond the norm,” Hewitt said last week. “It’s been very well received and very well supported by the corporate community. They obviously see the benefit of it.”’

        If we’re talking about money:
        Individuals with corporate connections – it’s an obligation.

    OMG! I p’d my pants!!!!
    hahahahahahahaha…….

    ‘[excerpt] You guys did a lousy job,” Don McCabe, vice president at the Ontario Federation of Agriculture, told attendees as a panelist during the recently concluded Canadian Wind Energy Association Annual Conference and Exhibition.

    McCabe said some rogue developers…often underestimated the intelligence of locals…wind developers often pitted neighbors against each other.

    McCabe told a story involving a local resident that learned at a restaurant that he was not receiving the same dollar amount as his neighbors.

    …what do you think the reaction is going to be?” McCabe asked rhetorically.

    Everyone involved should have a piece of the action, he explained, adding that such inequality only fuels the antipathy toward wind energy that is being felt in Ontario.

    McCabe suggested the time is right for wind developers to re-evaluate how they do things. “Some of your easements are nuts,” he deadpanned.

    Surprisingly, McCabe said the best way for wind developers to enter a community has less to do with money and more to do with simply being a good neighbor.

    He explained some developers erroneously believe that making improvements to the town’s infrastructure or donating playground equipment is all that is needed to be accepted or welcomed into a community.

    “No one needs playground equipment,” he said. “What they need is respect.”

    Additionally, he urged wind developers to simplify contracts to make them easier for landowners to understand. In fact, McCabe offered some free advice to wind developers in the audience:

    “If you can’t [explain the lease offer] on the wall of the church basement, you might be in the wrong business.”

    While most wind developers have come into communities the right way, the few bad ones have ruined it for everyone. “That’s reality,” he said.

    McCabe says the Ontario Federation of Agriculture – whose mission “enables prosperous and sustainable farms” – will work alongside wind energy stakeholders toward policy that benefits landowners and developers in Ontario.

    “Farmers are used to dealing with the risk of Mother Nature,” he stated. “But we will not tolerate the risk of poor policy.”‘

    As if truth is to be found on the walls of a church basement! Laugh Out Loud!
