MPPs Arnott, Pettapiece call for turbine moratorium pending Health Canada study

July 11, 2012

(Perth-Wellington) – In light of a new study announced by Health Canada, critics are blasting the McGuinty government for dismissing concerns about the health effects of wind turbines.

MPPs Ted Arnott (Wellington-Halton Hills) and Randy Pettapiece (Perth-Wellington) today called on the province to impose an immediate moratorium on new wind turbines. Their demand comes after Health Canada announced its new study on the relationship between wind turbine noise and potential health effects, specifically for those living near wind developments.

“For years, we have heard that some people living near wind turbines are getting sick,” noted Mr. Arnott. “Low-frequency noise from the turbines may be causing it.”

He continued: “Before they build any new wind farms, we need to find out what the Health Canada study concludes.”

Mr. Pettapiece agrees. “The McGuinty government is nothing short of negligent for ignoring the people who live near turbines,” he said. “If the government isn’t going to listen to our constituents, they should at least wait for the results from the experts at Health Canada.”
