Prominent lawyer slams Ontario wind power  

Credit:  By Lee Michaels on May 6, 2014 | blackburnnews.com ~~

Over 600 people tried to cram into the Camlachie Community Centre last night with the overflow standing outside.

We’re Against Industrial Turbines hosted a town-hall meeting to ramp up opposition to Suncor’s 46-turbine Cedar Point Wind Power Project.

WAIT is now trying to raise $300,000 to hire prominent Canadian lawyer Julian Falconer to help challenge the Ontario government’s policy on industrial turbines under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

Falconer was a guest speaker at last night’s meeting.

He tells Blackburn News that any suggestion there’s no impact on peoples’ health is “Alice in Wonderland fantasy.”

And he’s skeptical the June 12 Ontario election will change anything.

Falconer says the constitutional challenge that’s been mounted questions the appropriateness of government subjecting its citizens to projects without knowing the health effects currently under study by Health Canada.

He says the cash grab by wind companies has been extreme and the financial genie that’s been let out of the bottle is very difficult to control.
