Tribunal hears appeal of Suncor wind project approval

ERTSarnia Observer, Paul Morden
An Aberarder couple is concerned the health of their children will be impacted by Suncor’s plan to build wind turbines near their home, Ontario’s Environmental Review Tribunal heard Wednesday. Asha James, a lawyer for Kimberley and Richard Bryce, spoke about those concerns during her opening statement on the first day of testimony before the tribunal at the Camlachie Community Centre.

The Bryce family, and Lambton County, appealed the provincial government’s environmental approval for the 46-turbine Cedar Point wind project Suncor Energy plans to build in Plympton-Wyoming, Lambton Shores and Warwick Township. James said two of the Bryce family’s four children have been diagnosed with communication disorders and are sensitive to noise.

“The youngest child, Luke, suffers from ear infections and has difficulty sleeping,” James said. “The Bryce family have a legitimate fear that the eight turbines that will be erected around their home will cause harm to their health.” Read article
