OGRA Remarks

Ted Cowan, Senior Researcher at the Ontario Federation of Agriculture made a presentation at the recent conference of Ontario Good Roads Association/Rural Ontario Municipal Association (OGRA/ROMA).  His remarks included some harsh messages on economic considerations which are likely the basis of political decision making.  These discussions are often uncomfortable but definitely need to take place.

Regrettably, Mr. Cowan also made a flippant remark regarding the health concerns of rural Ontarians living near wind turbines.  The comment relating the decreasing frequency of asthma to wind turbine health concerns was insensitive to the problems faced by many rural Ontarians affected by the proximity of wind turbines.

The comments do not reflect the views of the Ontario Federation of Agriculture which sincerely regrets any offense caused to those affected.
