Premier “Insults and antagonizes” Citizens

Posted in Uncategorized at 10:54 am by sosren

On November 24, 2004, the McGuinty Liberals proudly announced the results of its Request for Proposals for 300 megawatts of renewable energy.  With noise guidelines developed from the advice of the wind energy industry the McGuinty Liberals started their assault on rural Ontario families. 

Soon emerged the first of many reports which described families suffering from adverse health effects related to wind turbine complexes.  

What did the McGuinty Liberals do in response to these reports?  The McGuinty Liberals ignored them and built more wind turbine complexes.  

Next were media reports of Ontario families forced to abandon their homes to save their health. 

Again the McGuinty Liberals ignored them and built more wind turbine complexes. 

Then Ontario families expressed their concerns regarding reported adverse health effects from wind turbine complex exposure.  

In response Premier McGuinty labelled these children, adults and seniors as NIMBYs and built more wind turbine complexes. 

Then 36 Ontario municipalities expressed their concern by passing resolutions requesting that the McGuinty Liberals study issues such as health risks associated with wind turbine complexes. 

The McGuinty Liberals ignored them and built more wind turbine complexes. 

Then a community based health survey was tabled which detailed 53 (now 77) victims reporting adverse health effect. 

The McGuinty Liberals ignored this and built more wind turbines.  

Then Victims of Wind, a community based victims support group was formed.  

The McGuinty Liberals ignored them and built more wind turbines.  

Now suddenly, again with the help of the wind energy industry, the McGuinty Liberals have developed new draft regulations which in the words of the Ministry of the Environment John Gerretsen “… best protect the health and safety of Ontarians”. 

Let it be known here and now that Ontario families will not accept regulations which have been developed based on the self serving opinions of the wind energy industry and the McGuinty Liberals. Ontario families demand that setbacks and noise regulations be based on independent epidemiology studies. 

It is time that the public know the truth about the harm the McGuinty Liberals have knowingly caused Ontario families.  It is time for a public inquiry.
