Eric Gillespie, lawyer for the Ian Hanna legal challenge, speaking at Alvinston, Ontario, June 30, 2010.
The Ian Hanna lawsuit charges that the 550 meter (~1,800 feet) minimum setback from homes established by Ontario violates the precautionary principle. In view of widespread reports of adverse health effects at that distance and more (up to 2 km or 1.25 mi), large-scale epidemiologic studies are required to determine appropriate setbacks.
The main hearing is scheduled for September 30, 2010.
