Time is a funny thing. It can go by in a blink of an eye or remain hanging frozen in a moment.
Niagara wind was built in 2015. In 2020 it has succeeded in driving yet another family from a cherished home. They were ordered to leave under medical advice of their health care provider, due to the adverse effects of the wind facility’s intrusive emissions manifested in various forms such as noise, strobe effect (shadow flicker), and electrical emissions. The family has fought long and hard with the Ontario Ministry and the project operators without relief and continue to fight even after being forced out against their will from their property.
Not an anniversary to celebrate. The price being paid of great harm to so many without consent.
