Parents Demand Protection for their Children from Wind Turbine emissions

Queen’s Park     —   April 16, 2013


“Premier Wynne, 550 meters is too close!”


A group of determined parents will arrive at Queen’s Park on Thursday morning April 18 at 11:30 to

demand a meeting with Premier Kathleen Wynne to discuss the risks to their children from industrial

wind turbines. The group is led by Shellie Correia of West Lincoln whose son Joey has Sensory Processing



“I met with Kathleen Wynne in my hometown just before Christmas when she was campaigning for the

leadership of her party,” says Correia. “I gave her many reports and a letter from Joey’s doctor and I

haven’t heard from her since.” Correia’s concerns and those of parents all across Ontario are for their

children, some with special needs such as autism and other issues who are at risk.


Dr. Chrystella Calvert is a behavioral Pediatrician and treats Joey. She agrees. “Noxious stimuli (or

unexpected, or unnatural stimuli) are a source of environmental stress that affect the human

brain…Wind turbines concern me, given my strong knowledge of neurobiology,” says Dr Calvert. “I as a

“normal brain” (or typical brain) individual would not want this risk to my mental health (or my

children’s’) in my neighbourhood.”


The vast 77-turbine wind project is slated for the area with massive 3 megawatt wind turbines, some at

exactly 550 meters from Joey’s home.


In her letter Dr. Calvert states, “Science has no evidence that this abnormal, incessant stimulus does not

have long lasting effects on the developing fetal child and adolescent brain. In a developed society like

Canada, we must advocate and protect the most vulnerable members.”


Non-consenting neighbours have filed complaints about the wind project in West Lincoln and are aware

that the government sponsored Research Chair from the University of Waterloo wants to use them as

part of a pre- and post- wind turbine study. The group says it is unethical to impose a health risk on a

community and then study it to see what happens.


Shellie Correia and the other parents at Queen’s Park tomorrow need answers.

    Aw shucks…..what’s the matter with one eyed newborns who won’t milk unless their dwarf ears hear the swooshing of a turbine?
