Residents concerned about Cedar Point wind project

Residents are raising their concerns about possible health effects related to Suncor’s Cedar Point Industrial Wind Power Plant Project.

Lawyers Julian Falconer and Asha James addressed the public’s concerns about at a meeting in Camlachie Tuesday night. They provided information on what happened during the Tribunal hearing and the evidence relating to human health that was presented. Despite their efforts, they were unable to prove the project will cause health effects in this case.

Suncor has been given the green light to proceed with its Cedar Point wind project dismissing the appeal by an Aberarder family who fears their children’s health could be affected by the turbines.

We’re Against Industrial Turbines – Plympton-Wyoming (WAIT-PW) also had a variety of speakers reviewing information related to the case.

WAIT-PW volunteer Santo Giorno says studies have shown that infrasound air waves are responsible for these symptoms.

“Infrasound is so energetic it can travel through buildings it can travel at least 10km,” says Giorno. Some symptoms include “dizziness, nausea, ringing in the ears, general feeling of unease, and also problems with sleep and sleep disturbance.”

Giorno says an example of an infrasound air wave is at the movie theater when a sound like an explosion can be felt on the body.

Lawyer Julian Falconer asked why turbines should be located close to homes in such a vast land like Canada. His answer? Money.

“These companies save money by having the turbines where they are versus having to put them in remote areas where of course they would have to pay the transmission costs” says Falconer.

Residents were advised to acquire baseline health status reports from their doctors and keep track of their health in journal entries. Information of this type could help serve as evidence in future court cases.

WAIT-PW also raised concerns about Suncor encroaching into wetlands and destroying 10,000 sq. ft. of trees that were supposed to be protected.

The Cedar Point wind project has been approved to build 46 turbines in Plympton-Wyoming, Lambton Shores, and Warwick Township.
