Letter to PM, Minister of Health has 200 Ontario signatories
June 16, 2016
A letter from Ontario residents has gone to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and federal Health Minister Dr Jane Philpott, asking that there be an investigation into adverse health effects reported by residents of Ontario living near wind turbines.
Signed by Barbara Ashbee of Mulmur Ontario, the letter also carried signatures of 200 Ontario citizens.
Ashbee gives examples of other investigations of an environmental health nature that are being funded by the federal government, and asks that the government consider a project related to wind turbine noise and health effects.
“The purpose of this letter is to formally request a meeting with the Minister of Health and staff to discuss compliance by the wind turbine industry with the Radiation Emitting Devices Act and wind turbine industry compliance obligations, and the need to conduct an investigation of complaints relating thereto,” Ashbee writes.
She also says that the wind turbine noise and health study completed by Health Canada did not ascertain environmental factors affecting “patient outcomes.”
