Last week Dr. Eric Hoskins, provincial Minister of Health for Ontario left the plowing match in Ivy where he and Wynne and other cabinet ministers were heckled about wind turbines, and travelled to Markdale to announce that funding would be provided for a new hospital in Markdale.
I’m very glad to tell you that he had to drive past the nice, big, clear WIND TURBINES-WE ALL LOSE billboard to get to Markdale. We have received donations for about 4 months more time to keep it up on display. Thank you to all who have contributed because the sign is most certainly seen by many who live well beyond the Markdale area. Any more contributions will be gratefully accepted so we can keep it up for another YEAR!
After Dr. Hoskins made his speech and before the photo op under the sign for a new hospital, Ginny Stewart gave him a package of information and asked for his help. Ginny is one of a number of Grey Highlands residents who have suffered health issues since the start up of industrial wind turbines in our municipality. At least one of our residents has simply walked away from a home that became unfit to live in after turbine start-up. One of the documents hand-delivered to Hoskins is attached along with a photo of Ginny and Dr. Hoskins.
Please continue to email and remind the Liberals that we are not going away. If you are able to participate in keeping the billboard up for a longer period of time, please make cheque out to BHCC (Blue Highlands Citizens Coalition) and mail to Lorrie Gillis, RR 4, Flesherton, ON, N0C 1E0
