Wind storm still brews
London Free Press letters
Regarding the article Wind storm (July 17).
Dr. David Colby’s cottage is not “in the shadows of wind turbines” — his summer residence is 4.2 kilometres away from the nearest proposed turbine. This is eight times the provincial standard of 550 metres, in which we, the full-time residents of rural Ontario, have to live and work.
I also note that this massive Samsung project near Rondeau is not yet operational. Colby’s comments are harmful insults to those who are truly suffering in neighbouring areas, such as Ridgetown, Thamesville, Morpeth, Harrow, Watford and Clear Creek.
To say that their tinnitus, vertigo, nausea and heart palpitations are fake is not professional.
If Colby could get over his pro- turbine bias, perhaps he could then look at the residents who are suffering as evidence.
