Wind turbines blow an ill wind say panelists

Wind turbines blow an ill wind was the message delivered by panelists at a town hall meeting in Tara.

The 200 or so people who packed the Tara-Arran community centre last week heard that turbines cause serious harm to health, decrease property values, destroy sensitive habitats and are making hydro unaffordable for some people.

Leader Energy Resources of Kincardine is in the process of developing a 46-wind turbine project in an area that reaches across the boundary between Arran-Elderslie and Saugeen Shores and includes the environmentally sensitive Arran Lake area.

Keith Stelling lives on Arran Lake and relishes in being a proponent of NIMBYism – Not in My Back Yard. And it’s for a good reason, he says.

“My backyard is worth protecting. I feel I have a responsibility to protect the heritage of our children and grandchildren. It’s going to be destroyed if we let this go ahead,” said Stelling, who spent three years studying the flora and fauna of the Arran Lake area.
