Arran-Elderslie council wants all municipalities in Grey and Bruce counties, along with both county councils, “to show a strong, unified belief ” in supporting Medical Officer of Health Dr. Hazel Lynn in her efforts to have a study completed on the health effects associated with industrial wind turbines.
“Dr. Lynn deserves a lot of credit for stepping out on a limb and taking a stand . . . she wants a medical study done and we should be supporting her in her efforts,” said Deputy-mayor Mark Davis.
At an Arran-Elderslie council meeting Monday in Chesley, Davis said “it is a time for all municipalities to take a stand and support Dr. Lynn. One in eight people are affected in some way by these things . . . it is imperative then that all levels of government function with due diligence, precautionary principle and common sense when dealing with all issues.”
Lynn has stated that after looking into the situation she believes the current setback of industrial wind turbines from people’s homes “certainly appears to have a very negative effect on some of the people’s health and that a third party independent study must be done.”
Davis’s motion, which received unanimous support from council, also stated that Arran-Elderslie impose a freeze on issuing any kind of permits related to wind turbines until Lynn is satisfied sufficient studies have been done.
