Unintended consequence: Wind turbines are impacting the health of Ontarians

There is a real possibility of a future with hundreds of Industrial Wind Turbines (IWTs) surrounding the greater Ottawa area. Quite a picture. Let me tell you a story. I live in the small community of North Stormont, just south of Ottawa. I have lived and worked in the Ottawa area for 25 years. The call of a rural life was strong when I bought our home in this peaceful community. I had hoped to retire here. I loved it . . . Complete story »

Everyone says N.L. has big potential for wind energy. But when will the industry get going?

Companies in the renewable energy field are excited about the implications of Newfoundland and Labrador’s abolition of a controversial moratorium on onshore wind energy production, although the provincial energy minister is hesitant to say how quickly things will start moving. A provincial moratorium on private wind farms had been in place since 2007, which kept companies from generating and exporting onshore wind energy in the province. Energy Minister Andrew Parsons said several companies had already expressed interest in developing wind . . . Complete story »

“I would like us to amend the official plan so it does not allow wind turbines, and (that we) do it right now,” Deputy Warden and Perth East Mayor Rhonda Ehgoetz said following Howard’s presentation. “I don’t think we want to wait until the (county’s) new official plan comes out because I think something could happen between now and then. Personally, I would like to see staff start working on that … (and) if there’s something simple and easy that we could put in there to stop them, I think that’s where we should go. Complete story »

C.B. wind farm will blight landscape

I am a very concerned citizen of Route 19 on beautiful Cape Breton Island. The Rhodena Wind Farm Project is a proposal by developers from away.

They will become an eyesore between Creignish and Judique. Imagine that! I am all for renewable energy, but not monster industrial turbines within a kilometre of a family dwelling. With all the . . .
