Dear Minister Aglukkaq,

Re: Health Canada Wind Turbine Noise and Health Study

This submission being made on behalf of Jack and Anna Hovius, their daughter and family, from Ontario supplements those previously made which have expressed concerns regarding risks to children and families associated with wind energy facilities.  

This submission reports the impact of a family member under the age of majority at risk from exposure to industrial wind turbines. The experiences described should be taken seriously.   

The family requests assistance from Health Canada to take action to protect a family member and other families at risk:

“In all cases, noise should be reduced to the lowest level achievable in a particular situation. Where there is a reasonable possibility that public health will be damaged, action should be taken to protect public health without awaiting full scientific proof.” [Reference: World Health Organization. (1999). Guidelines for community noise. Geneva; OMS, 1999, p 94. Ilus, Berglund, B., Lindvall, T., and Schwela, D. H]

Respectfully submitted on behalf of Jack and Anna Hovius, their daughter and family, from Ontario.
