MPP Thompson: Liberals knew about adverse health effects of turbines 

Credit:  January 3, 2013 | www.1017theone.ca ~~

The Progressive Conservative Party has obtained documents that show the Liberal Government has been aware of adverse health effect of wind turbines since 2009.

Huron-Bruce MPP Lisa Thompson says the documents were obtained through a Freedom of Information request.

Thompson explains a lot of names were omitted and content blacked-out.

The documents show officials were working on an abatement plan to help residents affected by turbine noise, however the report from 2009 was never made public.

Thompson also explains the documents show that one power company encouraged the Ministry of Environment to take a “consistent position” with their company to support the Green Energy.

She says, “The Liberal government has systematically silenced rural voices to advance a misguided green energy agenda.”

The documents also show the Ministry of Environment received many noise regulation complaints.

Families were then told projects were in line with noise and distance regulations, but the documents show some projects were not in compliance.

Thompson says it’s difficult to combat this while legislature is prorogued.

Thompson is stepping up for families and says those affected by turbines deserve to be heard.

She promises to continue to fight for a moratorium on wind turbines when legislature returns.
