7.3 Industrial Wind Turbines in Huron-Kinloss

WHEREAS, It is the primary function of all levels of government to function at all times with the Health, Safety and Well Being of their constituents as a high priority; and

WHEREAS, it is imperative for these reasons along with others, that all levels of government function with due diligence, the precautionary principal, and common sense when dealing with all issues; and

WHEREAS The Medical Officer of Health for Grey Bruce has clearly stated after looking into the situation that 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 3rd party independent study must be done; and

WHEREAS the Provincial Government of Ontario after having implemented the Green Energy Act has not shown concern for the Health, Safety and Well Being of the people we represent; and

WHEREAS, the Township of Huron-Kinloss Council has adopted a Wind Turbine Development Policy in an effort to protect the residents of Huron-Kinloss from health related and land development concerns; and

NOW THEREFORE IT BE RESOLVED THAT the Township of Huron-Kinloss Council will not issue building permits for Industrial Wind Turbines to those developers who do not adhere to the policies contained in the Wind Turbine Development Policy.
