TORONTO, Sept. 12, 2011 /CNW/ - Shawn and Trisha Drennan are landowners
facing a pending windfarm project known as Kingsbridge II. Kingsbridge
II will consist of upwards of 150 turbines one of which will be as
close as approximately 650 meters from their home. Twelve more turbines
will be located within the surrounding two kilometers. After learning
that eleven families living amongst two different wind projects (one
located in their neighbouring township) had their homes purchased by
wind companies, the Drennans sought to gather key information from
these former residents about the adverse health and safety effects of
the wind turbines. However, they learned that as a part of the buyout
agreements, these residents were blocked from discussing any negative
experiences with the wind turbines, including adverse health effects.
The Drennans, supported by the community group S.W.E.A.R. (Safe Wind
Energy for All Residents) will go to Court, asking the Court to
invalidate the non-disclosure clauses which gag their neighbours as
fundamentally against the public interest.
Shawn and Trisha Drennan, and their counsel Julian Falconer will be
available to speak to the media tomorrow, 12:00pm, noon, Tuesday,
September 13, 2011 at the offices of Falconer Charney LLP, 8 Prince
Arthur Avenue, Toronto.
Also available for comment will be John Laforet, president of Wind
Concerns Ontario, and Sherri Lang, founding director of Toronto Wind
Action, and CEO of North American Platform Against Wind.
