Family takes wind turbine companies to court over gag clauses on health effects of turbines  

Credit:  Canada NewsWire, www.cnw.ca 12 September 2011 ~~

Shawn and Trisha Drennan are landowners facing a pending windfarm project known as Kingsbridge II. Kingsbridge II will consist of upwards of 150 turbines one of which will be as close as approximately 650 meters from their home. Twelve more turbines will be located within the surrounding two kilometers.

After learning that eleven families living amongst two different wind projects (one located in their neighbouring township) had their homes purchased by wind companies, the Drennans sought to gather key information from these former residents about the adverse health and safety effects of the wind turbines. However, they learned that as a part of the buyout agreements, these residents were blocked from discussing any negative experiences with the wind turbines, including adverse health effects.

The Drennans, supported by the community group S.W.E.A.R. (Safe Wind Energy for All Residents) will go to Court, asking the Court to invalidate the non-disclosure clauses which gag their neighbours as fundamentally against the public interest.

Shawn and Trisha Drennan, and their counsel Julian Falconer will be available to speak to the media tomorrow, 12:00pm, noon, Tuesday, September 13, 2011 at the offices of Falconer Charney LLP, 8 Prince Arthur Avenue, Toronto.

Also available for comment will be John Laforet, president of Wind Concerns Ontario, and Sherri Lang, founding director of Toronto Wind Action, and CEO of North American Platform Against Wind.
