Turbine foe’s vehicle targeted; Windshield of car parked near Erieau smashed

A Blenheim-area resident who enjoyed a successful afternoon fishing on Lake Erie near Erieau returned to his SUV Sunday evening to find its windshield broken.

“It was cracked right where I placed an anti-wind turbine sign,” David Libby told The Chatham Daily News.

Libby, of Guilds, said he often placed the sign on the dashboard of his vehicle when it’s parked, but has never experienced anything like this before.

“I was shocked,” he said.

The sign was on the dash and the passenger window was left slightly open.

“I don’t know how they removed the sign,” Libby said.

Libby recently sold a property located near two wind turbines in the Ridgetown area after suffering months of sleep deprivation from noise he claims is caused by the turbines.

He has been vocal about not supporting turbines near people’s homes and posts signs on his property to indicate his opposition.

Libby said he reported the mischief to Chatham-Kent police in Blenheim on Monday.

Const. Renee Cowell confirmed Tuesday a police report showed the vehicle was parked on Kerr Avenue in Erieau Sunday afternoon when unknown suspects smashed the windshield causing about $500 damage and stole an anti-wind turbine sign valued at $2.

Libby said despite the mischief, he will not stop posting a sign in his vehicle in future.
