The first wind turbine in Ontario was built in the Bruce County community of Tiverton in 1994. The government later established a green energy program that pays wind companies huge sums of money to build turbines and gives priority to the use of wind energy. Now, wind turbines blanket rural Ontario.
In Bruce County alone, over the next 2 years, there will be a new wind turbine every day, meaning there will be 4 times as many as there are today.
The number of turbines in rural Ontario is increasing at a phenomenal rate.
So is the suffering of rural Ontario families.
Today, there are wind turbines in rural Ontario communities everywhere.
