Premier won’t halt wind turbines despite plea  

Credit:  By Staff | The Canadian Press | metronews.ca 19 July 2012 ~~

Nova Scotia Premier Darrell Dexter says he is surprised Amherst’s town council has asked him to delay the development of new wind turbines in the area.

Dexter says when he spoke with the town’s mayor at the end of June at the opening of a wind farm, Robert Small beamed with praise about the project.

The town council has sent him a letter saying residents want him to halt the projects until Health Canada complete a study on the effects of wind turbines on human health.

Dexter says he won’t delay the projects because there’s no evidence linking wind turbines to health problems.

A 2010 study by Ontario’s chief medical officer of health showed no negative effects, but the results of Health Canada’s study aren’t expected until next year.

Dexter says the provincial government will make a decision on more wind turbine projects this week.
