MOE: “…health related matters be addressed to the Local Medical Officer of Health”
In early July, it was proposed that if you are now affected by industrial wind turbines, to please write your local Public Health Unit/Board of Health and demand an investigation.
And if you are at risk of being affected by industrial wind turbines, to also write your local Public Health Unit/Board of Health and demand protection from harm.
Recent correspondence (Sept.10.2012) received on behalf of the Ontario Minister of Environment suggests “…that health related matters be addressed to the Local Medical Officer of Health.”. However, a follow-up meeting (Oct.9.2012) with a local health unit indicates that they have no authority to resolve the issues being reported.
Additional clarification is being requested about the authority of the local units to resolve the issues and to restore the health and well being of affected families.
In the meantime, it is important that the local Medical Officers of Health be advised of pre- and post-wind turbine health related issues to support the need for conducting an inquiry-investigation.
