Activists say turbines could impact swan migration

Anti-wind turbine activists plan to take their message to urban swan watchers Sunday in Lambton Shores.

Muriel Allingham, with the Middlesex-Lambton Wind Action Group, said some of its members will out along Greenway Road from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. to pass along information to the public.

The road, near the Lambton Heritage Museum, is a popular spot to view tundra swans stopping over in the Thedford bog during their annual migration.

The wind action group is fighting plans to build wind farms in the area, and says turbines could impede the swan’s migration.

Nextera Energy Canada is seeking provincial approval to build as many as 154 wind turbines in the area with its Jericho and Goshen wind projects.

“A lot of people believe wind power is green,” Allingham said.

“They don’t understand how it affects the environment, the wildlife and people’s health.”

She said the demonstration is a way to get the group’s message into the hands of urban residents travelling to Lambton Shores to see the swans.

“This a way to let them know that it’s not as green as they think it is.”

A Return of the Swans website maintained by staff at the heritage museum reported Friday that thousands of tundra swans were still in the nearby fields.
