Expand turbine setbacks: Lynn

Setbacks for wind turbines should be as much as twice the current 550 metres to avoid affecting so many people, Grey Bruce medical office of health Dr. Hazel Lynn said Tuesday.

But Lynn said she did not tell Huron-Kinloss council Monday night that further wind development should be stopped, as some media outlets reported Tuesday.

A news release circulated throughout Ontario Tuesday from The Society for Wind Vigilance said Lynn, on a local radio show, said she “thinks all industrial wind turbine development should be stopped until more is known about their effect on human health.”

“I didn’t say it like that,” Lynn said in a telephone interview clarifying her comments made at the Monday night council session. “What I probably said is we should have longer setbacks, and if you can’t have longer setbacks, well, then maybe we shouldn’t be having them (more wind turbine developments) right now.”
