What’s in a name?  

Credit:  The Wellington Advertiser, www.wellingtonadvertiser.com ~~

I am tired of WPD Canada and the whole wind industry referring to me and my farm as a “receptor” when they talk about the impact that I will be feeling from the noise and shadow flicker produced by their turbines.

The choice of a dehumanizing label is a deliberate attempt by the industry to hide that fact that their machines directly impact people.

So, in taking a page from their book, I will now be referring to the persons perpetrating this disaster to the neighbourhood as the “inflictor.”

Robert Service, BELWOOD
