A recent CBC story has raised serious concerns about noise from industrial wind turbines and resulting lower property values. Many comments on their webpage have been critical of the facts they reported. In response, the CBC has set up a poll:
The question is: “Would you live next to wind turbines?”
Unfortunately, the CBC article does not address the serious environmental damage caused by irresponsibly placed industrial wind turbines, such as the ones proposed for Ostrander Point.
However, we do have an opportunity to comment as well as to vote, and this may provide the CBC with an impetus to cover the environmental aspects of IWTs, including the disappearance of short eared owls from their former breeding grounds on Wolfe Island.
