The documentary Down Wind exposes how Ontario’s green energy dream turned into a nightmare for rural residents forced to live among towering 50-storey turbines. We hear searing, personal stories of people experiencing mysterious health problems, insomnia, depression, even thoughts of suicide; their lives turned upside down, some forced to evacuate their homes, by the constant noise and vibrations given off by the massive wind turbines. The documentary also reveals the staggering economic costs of these wind farms to taxpayers with huge subsidies going to big wind corporations and a handful of host landowners.

I have already spoken with Lakeland residents who are reeling, knowing that projects slated for this area in 2024 will bring the same consequences to their quiet rural properties. The effects — documented around the world, and not just Ontario — will be felt throughout the region with loss in property values, environmental hazards, division between neighbors and arguably the destruction of one of the most beautiful areas of Alberta outside of the Rocky Mountains.

How could this be happening? Listen to the disturbing experiences of our Eastern neighbors, coming soon to a farm near you…

    Mark, you are spot on! We are currently living the nightmare you describe in west central Iowa. My strongest advice for people of your community is DO NOT SIGN ANY CONTRACTS ! ESPECIALLY FOR EASEMENTS NEAR YOUR HOME! We have 90 fot transmission poles 35 foot from our from porch. We have a gauss meter and our numbers fluctuste to well over 20 milligauss. We’ve been told that less than 1 or 2 is the upper limit of “normal”. Our animals and our health have definitely been affected. We are trying to make a decision to sell our family farm, move our home or looking for other options. There’s nothing we can do about the lines. It’s wrong, they know it. But they’re not about to admit it. It’s all about money, not the planet!
