After relating to this organization which we are now members after leaving the Ontario Federation of Agriculture, do you think they are starting to the get the message that ruralites are not being treated fairly??? God only knows. Note that Minister of Energy Brad Duguid has been quoted to say “I think it sets to rest the concerns of some moderate people, (about the 5 km setback in the Lake) who were concerned if they go to the beach, they could be looking up at a huge wind turbine” I guess rural folks are not considered moderates and have no concerns over” looking” at turbines located y 300 to 600 metres from their homes, let alone the health implications this may represent. The disconnect by Minister Duguid is unbelievable when this kind of statement is made without regard to those who are trying honestly to bring light to the folly that is wind energy.
