New Book Takes Alternate View on Ontario's Wind Industry

TORONTO, Sept. 19, 2011 /CNW/ - Electricity bills are rising, rural property values are dropping, communities are being ripped apart, homes are being bought out by wind developers who then force a "gag" order on the previous owners, while Ontario's quiet villages and spectacular vistas are being despoiled by industrial power generation projects: that's the view of the 18 authors whose work was published by Wind Concerns Ontario this week in Dirty Business: the reality behind Ontario's rush to wind power.

Dirty Business is an anthology of articles and papers on the wind business assembled by editor and health care writer Jane Wilson of Ottawa, with contributing editor, Parker Gallant, a retired investment banker.

"The goal was to put the best thoughts and analysis on the wind power business in Ontario all in one place," says Wilson. "What has happened to Ontario is almost unbelievable: democratic rights have been removed, properties have been virtually expropriated without compensation, and quiet communities are being turned into factories. All this for a technology that won't do what is promised. Add the fact that people are getting sick from environmental noise and we have a dirty business indeed."
