In our mailbox today, words from a North Gower family:

Dear North Gower Wind Action Group,
…We had the pleasure to attend your excellent information meeting at the Alfred Taylor Centre on April 13. We applaud your guest speakers for their thoughtful, well-reasoned presentations.
We were initially encouraged by the fact that our home appeared to be further from the proposed wind turbines than the minimum distance recommended by Dr John Harrison, but were concerned for all of our neighbours who might not be so fortunate. However, now that you have informed us that the proposal is undergoing frequent revision, we have reason to be concerned for ourselves as well.
We would like to make a donation to your organization in the amount of $250 in appreciation for the hard work that you have done and are continuing to do on our behalf. We really can’t thank you enough.
Thank YOU for your support!

The information meeting on industrial wind turbines and the potential for effects on health, safety, the environment and property values is one week today!!

And, very special news: Eric Gillespie, the lawyer heading up the Ian Hanna challenge, is coming, too. An already star-studded speaker line-up just got some more glitter.

As you probably know, Ian Hanna is asking for a judicial review of the Green Energy Act on the grounds it does not meet the requirements of law in Ontario. In specific, there is significant scientific uncertainty about industrial wind turbines and their effects on human health to warrant striking down certain sections of the Act. More information on the Ian Hanna case can be read at http://windconcernsontario.wordpress.com  and clicking on the Ian Hanna challenge on the bar to the right.

This event is a unique opportunity to hear all these informed expert speakers at one time, and to ask questions important to you.  Residents from the Spencerville area (where Prowind has proposed the 10MW Brinston project) are joining us, and we hope people from Beckwith Twp where another industrial wind turbine project is proposed will join us, too.

Meeting date and time: April 13th at 6:30 p.m.

Alfred Taylor Centre, 2300 Community Way, North Gower
