(Queen’s Park)—Today, on the first day of regular business since the Liberals prorogued the Ontario Legislature 127 days ago, Lisa Thompson, MPP (Huron-Bruce) again tabled four separate motions calling for a moratorium on further wind development in Ontario.
Thompson tabled these motions for the second time on September 10th, but they were erased from the record when Dalton McGuinty closed the Legislature doors. The motions call upon the government to suspend all industrial wind turbine development in the province of Ontario until the federal health study is complete and the results are published, an economic viability study, an environmental impact study, and social health study has been completed.
“So much has happened since I tabled my motions last fall,” said Thompson. “We have found out through FOI documents from the Ministry of Environment that this Liberal government has known for years that there are significant health impacts from industrial wind turbines, but turned a blind eye and told the environmental officers who discovered these impacts to stand down.” continued
