Ontario family sues wind farm over health effects

An Ontario couple, Lisa and Michel Michaud, of Thamesville, Ontario has filed a statement of claim in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice alleging that the Kent Breeze wind farm operation has caused them to experience nausea, sleep disruptions and vertigo in their home.  Kent Breeze has not yet filed a statement of defence.  The closest of the Kent Breeze wind turbines to the Michaud home is 1,146 metres away.  The defendants in the lawsuit are Kent Breeze Corporation, MacLeod Windmill Project and Suncor Energy Services. 

The Michauds allege that adverse health effects of the wind project began as soon as it started operations earlier this year.  The Michauds purchased their property in 2005. 

A press conference was held in Toronto to announce the lawsuit.
