Wind turbines are definitely not ‘parks’  

Credit:  www.thestar.com 1 January 2011 ~~

Message to Councillor Shelley Carroll: rural Ontario, her so-called remote area, has dwellings and families just like her Toronto. And guess what? The Ontario government has been using them as guinea pigs in their grand wind experiment for four years. I can direct her to many guinea pigs who will most assuredly and quite emphatically insist that Toronto not invest in any wind turbines anywhere. These are not “parks.” These are 40-storey industrial scale turbines with a blade span that matches a 747 jet spinning directly behind and in front of homes. Many families have been forced from their homes by loud cyclical noise, pounding inaudible infrasound and dirty electricity. If she wants some first-hand knowledge I would be happy to talk to her. Now, can we please get some help out here?

Barbara Ashbee, Orangeville
