Present at the conference were delegates from several and varied organizations sharing their stories, information and experiences regarding the side effects of commercial wind turbines.
The featured speaker, David Stetzer (IWT Fingerprint, Tuned Filters, IEEE Standards & Regulations, Hydro Regulations, How Stray Voltage Affects Us All.) backed up by Barb Ashbee, (delivered first hand knowledge of personal horror) Carmen Krogh (The Vacated Home Research Study) and Alan Whiteley proffering an illuminating and alarming expose` of wanton Political Mismanagement and Criminal abuse of Ontario Citizens.
As enlightening as the conference was, what was more important was the fact that the various groups came out of their 'Silos' to unite in their common cause.
Throughout the presentations, questions and answers the common theme running through the conference left little doubt that in the end the answers were predicated on pure politics.
The unholy alliance between the Wind industry and ideology driven government painted a picture of a criminal cabal looking after themselves and ignoring their citizens!

Barb Ashbee: Barb and her husband were happy and healthy before a wind turbine project started up around their home causing serious adverse health effects that drove them to leave. Testing in their home showed out of compliance noise, infrasound and electrical pollution. It was a battle to get any meaningful information or assistance from the government. After hiring a lawyer, they settled with the company, were able to relocate and their symptoms subsided after moving. Almost 10 years later, the anger and dismay at what the government is doing to citizens has not lessened as the toll rises. Barb continues to advocate for resolution for victims impacted by wind energy and has communicated with and attended countless government and community meetings over the years.
