PRESS RELEASE

Industrial wind development faces gale-force resistance across Ontario.

Innisfil, Ontario October 25, 2008 -

Twenty-two wind action groups representing thousands of concerned Ontario citizens have joined forces to create Wind Concerns Ontario. This province-wide coalition promotes awareness of the true impacts of industrial wind power facilities on our health, environment, economy and quality of life.


Wind Concerns Ontario provides a strong, unified voice of opposition to the unchecked rush to locate over six hundred forty massive industrial wind turbines across the province in the last 5 years without the benefit of full environmental assessment. Plans to locate thousands more at an accelerated schedule, with even less oversight are tearing apart the very fabric of rural Ontario. Along with their transformers, transmission lines, overhead distribution wires and substations these industrial wind turbines threaten people and the environment in serene, historic, rural communities, on prime agricultural land, migratory bird paths, close to sensitive wetlands, designated wildlife areas and pristine shorelines.


Wind Concerns Ontario is in favour of environmentally sound solutions to our energy demands and environmental challenges. However hundreds of published reports from scientists, engineers, physicians and environmentalists refute misleading claims by wind power developers that industrial wind technology will be either effective or harmless.


Wind Concerns Ontariois committed to informing the people of Ontario as to the whole truth about industrial wind power.
