CAVAN MONAGHAN TOWNSHIP — Dr. Rosana Pellizzari says there is no reason for her to resign despite a request by Cavan Monaghan Councillor Tim Belch at a meeting on Tuesday (Jan. 14). Dr. Pellizzari, local medical officer of health, spoke to township council regarding renewable energy and the impacts wind turbines have on health. The request for Dr. Pellizzari’s resignation came following her presentation where she stated there were no “causal links” to poor health from wind turbines based on current scientific evidence. Those findings were outlined in a 2010 report by Dr. Arlene King, Chief Medical Officer of Health of Ontario, that Dr. Pellizzari helped with.
But Coun. Belch doesn’t agree. He said evidence will undoubtedly be uncovered proving there is a link to health problems as a result of wind turbines. “Would you be willing to resign when they release information there are indirect links?” questioned Coun. Belch.
Dr. Pellizzari backed up her report saying at the time the scientific evidence showed no link between wind turbines and health problems, however she is willing to admit that, with many scientific findings, things change. “I have no reason to resign,” said Dr. Pellizzari after the meeting.
