Wind turbines rile up LaSalle residents  

Credit:  CBC News, www.cbc.ca 24 May 2012 ~~

A number of LaSalle residents have taken issue with two proposed wind turbines and the man who plans to have them erected on Disputed Road.

Farm owner Larry Pajot wants the pair of turbines built on his rural farmland.

Approximately 35 angry residents who live near the area where the wind turbines are to be erected fired questions Wednesday night at the man who is erecting them.

Tim Parent organized a meeting held at the Knights of Columbus Hall in LaSalle.

The residents have several concerns, including declining property values.

“There are health issues; there’s property devaluation; there’s noise issues. On and on it goes,” Parent said.

Pajot said the residents are over reacting.

“There’s no scientific fact on any health concerns. These are class-three turbines. They are not as big. They don’t make the noise,” Pajot said.

Residents, such as, Gino Longo, aren’t convinced.

Longo and several others signed a petition to send to the province. It calls for a halt to the subsidy program funding turbine projects.

The residents also want the town to fight for the right to ban them.

Residents are also taking matters into their own hands. They say they’ll fight Pajot with a class action lawsuit.

A public open house outlining the turbine project is scheduled for June 12.
