Do you agree with the OFA that no more wind turbines should be built until a number of issues are dealt with?

The OFA has made a call to the Ontario government to suspend industrial wind turbines saying there are too many unanswered questions about its value, and that the debate over turbines is polarizing rural communities.

Pedler talked with a number of real estate professionals across the province about the impact of industrial wind turbines on home sales and found studies about the subject from around the world. He says in general, the value of a home within view of the rotating blades takes longer to sell and could sell for 30 percent less than market value"

There are also 4 residents in the Ripley area who sold their house to the wind developer.  The developer has only been able to sell one after 2 yrs.   I agree with Bill and Jake, the sooner this  kind of anti-social behaviour is stopped the better for our rural communities.
