It was standing room only at a public wind turbine meeting in Sebringville last night.
The meeting was organized by concerned citizens of West and East Perth Against Turbines after they learned that at least five turbines are currently in the works for installation on farmland in Perth County.
The thrust of the meeting was to inform Perth County residents of the adverse effects of industrial wind turbines.
Guest speakers outlined personal health problems they believe are connected to living near wind turbines.
Electrical pollution expert Dave Colling presented data that showed headaches and vomiting can be triggered by the electrical currents and low level sound emissions.
A real estate expert from Grey County also spoke about reduced property values and poor resale of country properties near wind farms.
