Last Wednesday's Waterloo Region Record carried this story "Liberal wind-energy woes grow stronger". There are numerous lawsuites launched against the province both due to their moving ahead with wind energy farms as well as for cancelling them along lake Erie. SouthPoint Wind is suing for damages after a moratorium was placed on offshore wind farms by the province. Closer to home Mr. Ralph Coneybeare of Listowel has been protesting against the installation of wind farms near his home and business.

In response the provincial Liberal government are trying to give priority to the approval of new projects to communities who are supportive of the idea and location. this just makes good sense and perhaps is a belated good idea. To the best of my knowledge, as of the present, the science is not yet there to back up the claims of health problems arising from wind farms. This is not remotely a denial of the legitimacy of those claims because science by necessity is often asked to study and determine matters only after a problem has arisen.
