Speakers to sound alarm on wind turbines  

Credit:  www.stoneycreeknews.com 4 November 2010 ~~

The West Lincoln Wind Action Group is holding a public information meeting on industrial wind turbines Nov. 10, 6:30 p. m. at the Caistor Community Centre, 9184 Regional Rd. 65 (Silver St.), in Caistor Centre.

The meeting will feature speakers from across the province discussing the serious impacts of industrial turbines as installed and subsidized under the provincial Green Energy Act. West Lincoln has been targeted for five industrial wind turbines to be constructed in May as stage 1 of an application to the Ministry of the Environment by IPC Energy of Mississauga.

The evening’s keynote speaker is Carmen Krogh from the Ottawa area who will speak about the serious health effects experienced by people living close to wind turbines.

Also addressing the meeting will be Stephana Johnston from Port Rowan in nearby Norfolk County. Johnston has firsthand experience of living next to an IPC Energy (formerly AIM) wind farm consisting of 18 industrial wind turbines that were powered up on Nov. 22, 2008 and will speak of the ill health effects she and her neighbors have experienced. Johnston states that more than half the residents living within three kilometers of the IPC wind farm report their health is suffering.

Also speaking will be David Colling from the Ripley area near Kincardine where he was a dairy farmer for 27 years and where there are 38 wind turbines that have been operating since December 2007. Colling initially considered leasing his farm for a wind turbine until he did some research and decided against it. He advises all farmers to wait until further studies are conducted and “the truth be known; good, bad or indifferent.” Colling will give a power point presentation on what farmers need to be aware of when signing contracts with large energy corporations.
