Turbine War of Words
April 4th, 2011
The Leader of the Middlesex Wind Action Group is expressing her frustration with the provincial government, saying concerns over the health impacts of wind turbines are being ignored. Esther Wrightman organized a rally at Lambton-Kent-Middlesex MPP Maria Van Bommel’s Strathroy office last weekend.
She says she was promised by the MPP that the concerns would be raised at Queen’s Park, but it turned out to be an opportunity for Van Bommel to advance the Liberal government’s green agenda instead.
Van Bommel disagrees.
Some 80 protestors said Saturday a moratorium on new wind farms is needed until health impact studies are completed.
