RESIDENTS IN ODESSA ARE VOICING THEIR CONCERNS OVER THE POSSIBILITY OF WIND TURBINES.



RESIDENTS IN ODESSA ARE VOICING THEIR CONCERNS OVER THE POSSIBILITY OF WIND TURBINES. RESIDENTS IN ATTENDANCE WERE ALLOWED TO PRESENT THEIR CONCERNS TO MEMBERS OF LOYALIST COUNCIL. SOME WORRY ABOUT THE NOISE OF THE TURBINES, AND THE THREAT TO WILDLIFE. SO FAR 33 TOWNSHIPS IN ONTARIO HAVE PASSED MOTIONS STATING THEY ARE NOT A WILLING "HOST COMMUNITY" FOR WIND ENERGY PROJECTS. A RESIDENT FROM WOLFE ISLAND SHARED HIS EXPERIENCE WITH LOYALIST COUNCIL. HE SAYS HIS HYDRO BILL HAS INCREASED DRAMATICALLY SINCE 86 GIANT WINDMILLS WERE PUT UP ON WOLFE ISLAND."I can appreciate that maybe some of the people over on the main land don't mind them but on the Island it's about 90% against and that other 10% are getting paid out of it."
