Council supports turbine moratorium

MAPLETON TWP. – Council here is supporting a call for a moratorium on industrial wind turbines.

At its Nov. 13 meeting, Mapleton council agreed to support resolutions from West Lincoln Township calling on the province to impose a moratorium until the results of a federal health study are known and acted upon.

West Lincoln is also calling for the expansion of the federal health study to include a review of potential health impacts including stray voltage, flicker, dizziness, vertigo and other issues alleged to result from the installation of industrial wind turbines.

Another resolution from the township, calls on the province to conduct a study on the effects of the wind turbines on livestock and the agricultural industry.

Niagara Region Wind Corporation has applied to install 77 wind turbines between West Lincoln and Wainfleet, while IPC Energy is seeking to install five turbines in West Lincoln.

Councillor Jim Curry cited two recent “scientific reports” released in the US that indicate that residents living within one kilometre of turbines suffer health effects and advocated a moratorium on turbines until the results of the federal health study are available.

“Until the study is concluded I think that it’s prudent that wind turbines be put on hold across Ontario,” Curry stated.
