Ex-RNAO member, WCO pres awarded Jubilee medal
An Ottawa-area nurse has received the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal for service to the community, specifically for acting as an advocate for the health and safety of rural residents facing industrial wind power projects.
As president of Wind Concerns Ontario, she also mentioned on a recent Dale Goldawk show, that she had resigned from the Registered Nurses Association of Ontario, because the association will not admit to the health problems being experienced by people living near the power projects.
She was one of several nurses who put forward a resolution at the RNAO’s annual general meeting earlier this year asking for the association to support more research into this issue. The motion was defeated, with several members abstaining. Several weeks later, Health Canada announced that due to the rising number of reports of ill health among people living near the power projects, it was launching a clinical health study.
