Re Wes Keller’s article on wind farms:
It has always been my perception that reporters are a set of professionals, trained by highly experienced teachers, most of whom have attained a high degree of honesty and moral integrity, to report the events and truth as it really is, and not as they would personally like it to be.
It therefore puzzles me greatly, that Mr. Keller seems to have a knack of preaching correctness and truthfulness as seen only from the point of view of wind farm proponents and their urban followers.
His naïveté could be excused, if it were not for a multitude of evidence, now made readily available to anyone, seeking the truth about Industrial Wind Turbines (IWT’s), that shows thousands of people now suffer greatly from the unreasonable setbacks from these alien monsters. Along with their “supposed safe deployment” and I use those words advisedly, as the Green Energy Act has made all and any public opposition to this industrialization of rural Ontario, a non starter for those that live out here..
His seemingly carefree writing, that it’s a “relatively minor installation” in Whittington, does your readers a distinct disservice, in that a reporter should be fully aware of the true facts of how an initial deployment really works.
Once a few are deployed, it has been shown and proven that “infill with other IWT’s follows rapidly, until the whole rural area has turned into an industrial zone.
The almost sleight-of-hand approach to this rural problem has myself and thousands of others question if he has, in fact, carried out any serious research into this most volatile subject, that promises to turn violent if our provincial government does not start to pay heed to its rural residents.
People have a way of showing that anger when their property values and health are threatened by anyone, much less their own government, who, I might add, is fast becoming almost “foreign” in its approach to going green.
One would hope that you are aware of the double standard, when Duguid and McGuinty, backed off on the Lake Ontario deployment, as it would have seen four Liberal ridings go down to the opposition, when planned deployment of turbines along the Scarborough Bluffs and other ridings where effectively cancelled, showing rural residents that we are the sacrificial lambs in McGuinty’s “unsafe energy plan.”
Instead of quoting from a seven-member panel of unknown sources of experts, who for all we know carried out a study paid for by wind proponents, therefore making it suspicious at best, why not quote from the 15 PhD’s and sound experts that attended the world’s first Wind Symposium, held in Brighton just a few short weeks ago. Studies carried out by these illustrious scientists are completely independent and carry much weight among their peer group, yet people like you and our Ontario chief medical officer, refuse to even consider looking at it.
I have always thought quite highly of honest, independently minded reporters, especially ones that dug up the truth, and had the guts to stand up to corporations that look only at the bottom line, and keep on licking their sticky fingers, while they continue to hurt more of our society.
Do the right thing Wes, and research this, before it’s too late!
