Until it can be determined whether wind turbines adversely affect the health of its citizens or not, Haldimand will join forces with 67 Ontario municipalities that are asking for a moratorium on wind turbines.
Councillor Buck Sloat asked that a resolution be drafted stating Council members have input into site erection.
“Previously, they made it very clear that you had to be a willing host,” said Sloat.
“But now that has gone out the door and I think we need to get that back on the agenda. I think we want to be concerned more from a planning perspective than a health perspective,” he added.
Councillor Craig Grice agreed.
“I don’t think any of us are doctors. Our residents need to have input and be aware. The main concern I have is that the public seems to have very little input. Our Council has virtually no say through the Green Energy Act and the province is turning a blind eye to it.”
“One of the big concerns is the appearance of the province approving these without the approval of municipalities,” said Councillor Lorne Boyko.
