Wind Concerns Ontario gets a new leader  

Credit:  The Wellington Advertiser, www.wellingtonadvertiser.com Dated November 25, 2011 ~~

Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario member Jane Wilson of Ottawa has been elected president of Wind Concerns Ontario by the group’s board of directors.

Wind Concerns Ontario is a grass roots affiliation of over 58 community groups whose goal is to educate the public on what they see as potential dangers to health and safety from industrial wind power generation.

Wilson is a graduate of the Toronto General Hospital School of Nursing and the University of Toronto, and was assistant editor at Canadian Nurse before embarking on a career as an independent health care writer and editor.

After holding staff positions as assistant editor at Canadian Nurse, and senior associate editor at Ottawa Magazine and Ottawa Business Life, she has worked as an independent writer and communications consultant since 1990. She is the author of Ottawa: more than a capital city and the editor of the 2011 book, Dirty Business: the reality of Ontario’s rush to wind power.

Outgoing president of Wind Concerns Ontario John Laforet praised the choice of Wilson as new president.

“Jane embodies all that is good about the battle for justice in rural Ontario over the industrial wind issue,” he said. “She is informed, courageous and in touch with grass roots in her area and beyond.”

Wilson said, “I am honoured to accept this position, which means a greater opportunity to inform people about what is happening throughout this province, when industrial wind power projects are being located too close to people’s homes. We’re seeing people experiencing serious health effects due to sleep disturbance and stress as a result of the noise created by these huge industrial machines.”
