There stands to be a landmark Huron County Board of Health Meeting, Thursday, September 1, 2016, starting at 9:00 a.m. in the Auditorium of the Health and Library Complex, Huron County Health Unit, 77722B London Rd., Clinton, Ontario.
Under section 8.1 of the agenda is a recommended motion that
“the Board of Health agrees to the request made during its August 4, 2016 meeting for the Health Unit’s participation in the proposed investigation into wind turbines and reported associated human health effects, to be conducted in partnership with Wind Concerns Ontario and the University of Waterloo”
It is expected that the Board will pass the above motion. Given the public is typically not allowed to speak, I would hope there will also be additional clarification on next steps, providing residents with an opportunity to make informed choices on how each can best support efforts moving forward.
Many people are suffering and I encourage everyone who is able to please attend. A crowd in the public gallery at these meetings is important and powerful. Don’t leave it to others to show up and please pass the word along to family, friends and neighbours.
It takes great courage for people to share their concerns, especially when it comes to something as personal as health. Tremendous efforts on the part of many have brought us to this point and I want to thank all who have worked so hard to ensure the health concerns of Huron County residents are going to be addressed.
