I am writing to express my concern about the proposed Horizon Wind Inc. wind farm. Our family consists of two professionals and a young child and we chose to move to Thunder Bay two years ago in large part because of the natural beauty, healthy lifestyle and recreation opportunities. The wind park puts all those elements at risk for very little reward. We also feel it is important for
Health Canada to conclude its research on wind turbines and residential areas, and for threatened species like the peregrine falcon to be protected.
Going ahead with this project is short-sighted. The Nor’Wester range is not a good site for the wind park. Horizon’s proposal should be rejected.
