Lorrie Gillis- Wind Warrior

The fight is not over. On October 2nd, 14 of some of the best of the best wind warriors met at Stevens Restaurant in Markdale. The resounding resolve and heart to continue to fight for the people who have become collateral damage and who continue to struggle with the unrelenting torment from turbine emissions, is strong and remains the top priority for the group that gathered. Steps to move forward are already in the works. Thank you to every single one of you who came and thank you all for your work, expertise, concrete ideas and determination to finish this battle. Finally, after over a decade of documentation and fruitless effort to put the truth of the harm to Queens Park, we have a govt in power that is willing to listen. More to come.

These deaths, they say, are not counted properly.

Part of that could be chalked up to Ontario’s regulations: large turbines can tower more than 150 metres high but the province only requires inspectors, when counting bird and bat deaths, to measure 50 metres from each base.

“A lot of the birds that get hit are flung well beyond that point,” Brian Salt, owner of the Mount Brydges animal rehabilitation clinic Salthaven, said. “They’re not counted in that survey.”……
