Become an expert on the wind turbine issue in 8 minutes flat
Well .. maybe not an expert. But you’ll get a good snapshot of most of the issues relating to wind turbines and the Green Energy Act by watching the following 8-minute video, produced by the London and St. Thomas Alliance of Realtors (LSTAR).

Industrial wind turbines are springing up all over Ontario and people living close to them are concerned about what impact they might have, both on their personal wellbeing and on the value and enjoyment of their property. So are Ontario’s REALTORS®. Listen to LSTAR’s President-Elect, Doug Pedlar, as he presents the case for a moratorium on wind turbines until all the facts are in.
Here’s the video: http://tinyurl.com/cxd64dy .
Note: The only issue not referenced in the video is the negative impact on the local economy — tourism, new construction / renovations and new business startups — due to industrialization from large-scale uncontrolled wind energy development.
