Dear Minister Aglukkaq, 

Re: Wind Turbines Can Harm Animals

On November 21, 2012, I provided a submission to Health Canada, on request, and on behalf of the Brindley family who left their farm in Ontario and now farm in Saskatchewan. Documentation regarding that submission had been verified by the family. The file name of the submission was: “Brindley_Health Canada Submission Nov 21 2012 FINAL”.

The Brindley submission documented harm to their cattle and included photos of deformities entitled section “3.2 Swollen joints and deformities.

The purpose of this submission is to inform Health Canada that documentation regarding deformities to horses is available.

I declare no conflicts and have received no financial support for the research, authorship, and/or publication of this submission.

Indications are that industrial wind energy facilities may cause harm to cattle and horses. It is possible this risk could extend to other animals.

There is an opportunity for Health Canada to invoke the precautionary principle and to consider the risk to animal life.

Reports of risks to humans including children have been provided in previous submissions and through submission of peer reviewed articles and other information.

Health Canada should ensure that appropriate research determines guidelines that avoid risk of harm to humans and animal life. This research should be conducted before continuing to support industrial wind energy development.
