The setbacks for wind farms and turbines in Ontario are insufficient. The turbines are too close to homes and will create problems for residents. It has already been proved wind farms are too close to homes based on the experience of the wind farm in Ashfield Township. The people I talked to there suffer from both noise and flicker. It is totally unacceptable that the Government of Ontario and Dwight Duncan have so little respect for the people of Ontario. It would appear the setbacks for wind turbines are to maximize profits for the wind industry with no regard for the families that are forced to live near them. Make Kincardine,Ripley,Tiverton,Bruce township,Kincardine township and the County of Bruce a wind farm and wind turbine free Zone. There is no good news about wind farms.
