It’s not just that the wind industry is destroying Ontario’s water supplies that peeves people, it’s that they continue to lie about it.
Those searching for a universally hospitable and polite group of people, need look no further than Canadians, and the industrious rural folk of Ontario, are no exception.
These are the farming communities that leave their front doors unlocked, lend their farm equipment to neighbours in need, without being asked, and otherwise rub along without so much as a grumble. They tend to take people at face value, give them the benefit of the doubt, and don’t expect to be lied to and treated with naked contempt.
With those attributes in mind, you’d be hard pressed to find a more undeserving group of victims of corporate greed and tyranny, than Ontario’s farmers. But, so it is.
Over the last few months, STT has reported several times on how the wind industry has relentlessly destroyed underground water supplies in Chatham-Kent, lying about the cause all the way along.
Adding insult to injury, the public health authorities have sided with the wind industry; treating its victims with equal, if not greater, cynicism and contempt.
Polite they may be, but these people are not fools. Finally, the disaster is being taken seriously by a few of their elected representatives. And, about time, too.
