Independent researcher finds similarities between wind industry and government wind policies

Independent researcher Brett Horner, who regularly performs detailed audits of documents and research papers, has examined documents from both Health Canada and CanWEA and found many similarities, he says.  He has written an open letter to Prime Minister Stephen Harper and the MInister of Health so “informed Canadians” are aware that certain statements are not accurate.

Open letter to The Right Honourable Stephen Harper, Prime Minister of Canada and Minister Aglukkaq regarding “conclusively demonstrated” health effects from exposure to wind turbine noise (9MB .pdf)

Health Canada has been advised of Canadians exposed to wind turbine projects who are experiencing adverse impacts to their physical mental and social well-being. In some cases families have effectively abandoned their homes or negotiated financial agreements with wind energy developers. Some adversely impacted Canadians have requested Health Canada’s assistance.

Health Canada has reached out to the industry trade association, CanWEA.

The question is has Health Canada fulfilled its mandate by reaching out to Canadians who experience negative impacts from wind turbines?  Has Health Canada reached out and helped adversely affected Canadians “maintain and improve their health while respecting individual choices and circumstances”?

The references cited in this open letter are excerpted primarily from Government and wind energy proponent sources. These references support the conclusion the Health Canada Wind Turbine Noise and Health Study team has not fully disclosed existing knowledge about the health impacts from exposure to wind turbine noise.

    CanWEA is euphemistically called “industry trade association” when it is more properly a Lobby Group.
