After a fatal crash in the U.S., local pilots are again raising concerns about wind turbines near Ontario airports. Scott Miller explains.
Trent Gervais says the proposed turbine -- part of a five-turbine project in the area -- is on one of the airport's landing approaches and, if built as proposed, would prevent the airport's ability to meet its future needs.
The Ontario Ministry of Transportation is investigating how a massive wind turbine fell from a truck Tuesday. Part of a wind turbine's base fell from the transport truck on County Road 42.
The couple's most immediate concerns relate to the installation of distribution lines near a known gas well. “This is where the danger lies,” said Fairfield. “This case has reached a point where the health and safety of a very densely populated rural area of West Lincoln and Hamilton is threatened if no immediate action is taken.”
“Gunshots have been heard on a number of occasions since just prior to the opening of hunting season,” Dallas said in an email. “Recently shots were heard on Friday afternoon and Sunday morning.” While no one has been injured, Dallas said, there have been “several close calls.”
A 365 ton crane, which is being used on the construction of the McLean’s Mountain Wind Farm project, overturned yesterday along Green Bush Road.
David Colling of Ripley Ontario, explains the connection between wind turbines and dirty electricity. Many rural residents who live in Industrial Wind Developments are experiencing many ill effects from these installations because of the electrical pollution.
