Academic approach to water well problems

Bill Clarke, a retired hydrogeologist who has been working with [Water Wells First], said he is not opposed to alternative green energy sources, including wind generators. “What I am opposed to is a disregard for people's right to have access to clean water and the dismissive attitude towards obvious changes in the water quality of the contact aquifer,” he added. Clarke said it is “statistically unlikely” that this number of families would experience the “extreme change in water quality, specifically turbidity, at the same time without an obvious, recent geological event like an earthquake, or in this case, an anthropological event – the construction and operation of the wind towers.” Complete story »

PC leadership candidate Tanya Granic Allen stops in Chatham

Granic Allen also pulls no punches when it comes to her stance on wind farms. “We're going to rip them turbines right out of the ground, because it's ridiculous,” she said. She added Ontario has within its jurisdiction, “legislative supremacy that gives us permission, as legislators, to cancel that contract with those big companies.” Notice will be sent to wind turbine companies that “the raping and pillaging of Ontario taxpayers will come to an end,” Granic Allen said.
