“There is no flicker study, do you want one?” That was Jack Breen’s question to Leland Road-resident Dan Alves at last night’s Board of Health (BOH) meeting in the Town House.
Alves wasn’t shy about his thoughts. “No, I don’t want [a flicker study] now because I think it’s illegally sited,” Alves said to Breen as he became visibly emotional. “It never should have been zoned.”
Breen rolled his eyes as Alves clarified.
“I don’t want a flicker study now…[the turbine] is illegal,” Alves proclaimed last night.
Last month, in a Feburary 7 KingstonJournal.com report, the Journal first reported that the KWI Turbine had never been the subject of a site-specific flicker study…that was enough for Dan Alves.
“Here’s your flicker study,” Alves said to the BOH. “I had two 9-year olds in my kitchen on Saturday. After 10 minutes of flicker, they had to go down to the basement because they both felt nauseous and had headaches.”
Alves said that shadow flicker from the Kingston Wind Independence (KWI) Turbine lasted for 70 minutes at his home on Saturday. “That’s not a study, that’s reality,” Alves said.
