We do not consent  

Credit:  Letters to the editor, June 30, 2020 | Cornwall Standard-Freeholder | June 29, 2020 | www.thewhig.com ~~

An open letter to: Ontario Attorney General Doug Downey, Premier Doug Ford, Minister of Environment, Conservation and Parks Jeff Yurek.

In September 2019, residents of North Stormont Township and abutting townships sent Eastern Ontario Health Unit medical officer of health Dr. Paul Roumeliotis, as well as the premier, the attorney general, the ministers of health, environment, and energy a notice of non-consent. It was signed by people of all ages— children and adults.

The people do not consent to any “discharge of contaminant,” e.g., environmental respiratory contaminant(s) in any form; vibration, shadow flicker, infrasound/low-frequency vibration or noise.

This week, the residents are again sending a Notice of Non-Consent to the Government of Ontario’s attorney general, premier, and Minister Yurek, again telling you they do not consent to any “discharge of contaminant.”

They do not consent under the Nuremberg Code, to be made a medical experiment for a turbine size, make and model never tested in Ontario, erected in clusters, with many close to homes – just over the legal 550-metre distance – established when turbines were much smaller.

It is known that infrasound can travel 20 kilometres. Residents in the approximate ringed areas are in danger. The people did not consent.

No one in the project or surrounding areas agreed to be exposed to infrasound, low-frequency noise, vibration or shadow flicker; they never agreed to having individual or clustered turbines in close proximity to their homes.

The health impacts are known in other Ontario industrial wind projects.

The issues are documented in the recently published, peer-reviewed article Déja vu and Wind Turbines: A Review of Lived Experiences after Appeals of Ontario Industrial-Scale Wind Power Facilities. Also, in Wind Turbine Incident/Complaint Reports in Ontario, Canada: A Review—Why Are They Important?

Furthermore, an Ontario peer-reviewed paper has been released titled Confirming Tonality at Residences Influenced by Wind Turbines.

It is now documented that people of Ontario have been forced to walk away from their own homes, no longer safe because of impacts of industrial wind turbines, in this report: Preliminary Results: Exploring Why Some Families Living in Proximity to Wind Turbine Facilities Contemplate Vacating Their Homes—A Community-Based Study.

The Ontario facts are known; Ontario residents do not consent.

I believe it is criminal negligence by the current Ontario government to knowingly expose thousands more residents of all ages to harm by allowing the Nation Rise Wind Farm project to proceed.

Legislation similar to the legislation which stopped the White Pines Wind project must be enacted to permanently cancel the Nation Rise Wind project.

The people do not consent.
