The purpose of this submission is to inform Health Canada, the study team and others about the health and socio-economic issues in general, which have caused Canadian families to report symptoms, stress, anxiety, depression, frustration, financial burdens, social impacts and other health related issues associated with pre- and post-operations of industrial wind facilities.
Families with children, including those with pre-existing medical conditions, have reported concerns regarding the siting of industrial wind energy facilities in close proximity to residences and schools.
