Property value will be depleted

Re: Samsung feels stung by Ontario, Business, June 17

If the ill-conceived wind turbine developments go ahead in Ontario as planned, I will not be able to afford a cup of coffee at Tim Hortons, not because of my hydro bill as Tyler Hamilton states but because my property and personal finances will be devastated by this industrial development. Three wind turbines each 400 feet high will be within 500 metres of my house – not my property line but my house. We will lose the use of most of our farm property and the value of our property will be depleted. The foreign wind company developing in our area has acknowledged the negative impact on property values. They have also acknowledged to my face (and with a smile on their face) that they have no plans to compensate property owners. I am an environmentalist and a fierce proponent of green energy. Responsible green energy development is needed, not massive industrial machines with the potential to negatively impact the health and welfare of people within close proximity. I have no interest in selling out my fellow Ontarians so that I can maintain our reputation with South Korea.

Martha Rutherford Conrad, Orono
