Turbine protest for Premier  

Credit:  Friday, November 2, 2012 by Fadi Didi | www.bayshorebroadcasting.ca ~~

Residents of Huron County against wind-farms made their way to London on Friday where Premier Dalton McGuinty was set to speak at the Nurse Practitioners’ Association of Ontario Annual Conference.

Members of Central Huron Against Turbines, Bluewater Against Turbines, and the Middlesex-Lambton Wind Action Group have all shown up at the London Convention Centre for the demonstration.

The Premier is facing a lot of energy-related scrutiny, including two costly gas plant cancellations and protested wind-farm developments.

Esther Wrightman of the Middlesex-Lambton Wind Action Group says her group already planned to contact Health Minister Deb Matthews and Energy Minister Chris Bentley today, but thought they would also pay a visit to Premier McGuinty.

Wrightman admits the demonstration was quickly strung together, but she is happy that her fellow demonstrators were able to organize as quickly as they did.

Canadians are still awaiting a study from Health Canada into the effects of winds turbines.

Wrightman tells us she has seen the effects first-hand from people who claim their health has suffered because of wind-farm projects.

Although she is bearing the cold weather, the Wind Action Group leader tells us she doesn’t expect McGuinty â€“ or anyone else in his Cabinet â€“ to speak with demonstrators.

President of Bluewater Against Turbines Dave Griffiths tells us the demonstration quickly got the attention of motorists and police alike.

He says four police cruisers were parked outside the Convention Centre to monitor the demonstration.

About 40 people attended Friday’s protest.
