Wind turbine health study starting up
Bruce County residents living near wind turbines can expect to hear soon from a team studying the health effects of the massive wind-powered generators. University students will be fanning out across the area over the next month putting surveys in hundreds of mailboxes. It's one of the first steps in a five-year, $1.5-million study being conducted by the Ontario Research Chair in Renewable Energy Technology and Health, which is based out of the University of Waterloo....[full story]

Walker Urges Liberal Backbenchers to Support Moratorium
Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound MPP Bill Walker wants Liberal backbenchers to put an end to the rural-urban double standard in Ontario politics and pass a moratorium on wind energy this Thursday at Queen’s Park. “The tale of two Ontarios continues today. When it came to the health concerns of people in Scarborough, Oakville and Mississauga, this government responded by instantly bringing in moratoriums on offshore wind and gas plant projects,” Walker said. “Clearly, this is a double standard. Obviously, there are two sets of rules where, one could argue, the voice, concerns and wishes of the vote-rich cities commands this government while concerns raised in rural Ontario are ignored.”...[full story]

Michael Savage: Was Breitbart assassinated?
Noting that the cause of Andrew Breitbart’s unexpected death yesterday was being examined by the Los Angeles County Coroner’s office, talk-radio host Michael Savage raised the question of whether the conservative media powerhouse – who recently announced he had videos that could politically damage President Obama – was murdered. On his top-rated show today, Savage played an audio clip of Breitbart telling an audience at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington last month that he had obtained videos that shed light on Obama’s ties to radicals in the early 1980s who helped propel him to the presidency....[full story]

Top cosmetic companies give in to greed and resume cruel animal testing, blame China
After 20 years of being cruelty-free, companies like Mary Kay, Avon and Estee Lauder are once again testing on animals. Their excuse is that the Chinese government requires animal testing on products sold in China. Doubtful that is comforting to the animals who are tortured with burning chemicals in their eyes and on their skin in the name of greed....[full story]

Ron Paul says America is 'slipping into a fascist system'
You may have grown weary of listening to the candidates vying for our nation's highest office in November, so I completely understand if you have all but tuned out the rhetoric and noise coming from the campaign trail. But sometimes those who seek to lead us say something so profound that it not only bears repeating, but is worth taking the time to pause and consider. GOP presidential contender Rep. Ron Paul of Texas said during a speech in Kansas City, Mo., Feb. 21, that the U.S. is "slipping into a fascist system where it's a combination of government and big business and authoritarian rule and suppression of the individual rights of each and every American citizen." ...[full story]

A Government That Knows No Bounds
The freedom to choose unmolested by government agents has long defined liberty for the American people. This administration has no love of that liberty and regards use of government, for any end deemed by state planners in the public interest, fully justified (even if it comes at the loss of individual liberty)....[full story]

Madness after girl, 4, draws gun pic at school
A father has been arrested, strip-searched and hauled in for questioning – all because his four-year-old daughter drew a picture of a gun at school. “I’m picking up my kids and then, next thing you know, I’m locked up,” Jessie Sansone, 26, told the Waterloo Region Record in Canada. “I was in shock. This is completely insane. My daughter drew a gun on a piece of paper at school.”...[full story]

Agenda 21: The End Of Western Civilization: Part 3
Overview When public policy is made by elected officials who are accountable to the people who are governed, then government is truly empowered by the consent of the governed. Sustainable development has designed a process through which public policy is designed by professionals and bureaucrats, and implemented administratively, with only symbolic, if any, participation by elected officials. The professionals and bureaucrats who actually make the policies are not accountable to the people who are governed by them. Henry Lamb, Sovereignty International...[full story]

Red Tape Cut #1
Dear Prime Minister Harper,   If you are serious about cutting red tape, then we respectfully request that you eliminate the Natural Health Product Regulations.  These regulations (a) are doing what doesn’t need to be done, (b) are causing harm rather than preventing harm, (c) are in violation of the Constitution Act, 1867, and (d) have cost taxpayers an estimated $1 billion to date....[full story]

Pediatrician calls state trooper, child protective services on mother for refusing to vaccinate child
What would you do if your pediatrician called the cops and child protective services on you for refusing to get your child vaccinated? That is exactly what happened recently to Rachel Garmon of Pennsylvania when she told her new pediatrician that her healthy and vibrant two-and-a-half year old son had never been -- and never would be -- vaccinated. InfoWars reports that Garmon, a well-known member of her community and director of a sports and wellness program at a local community organization, had been having a reasonably pleasant interaction with her new pediatrician until the conversation moved on to the topic of vaccines. The pediatrician, Garmon did not name, apparently began to badger Garmon with typical pro-vaccine propaganda in an attempt to convince the mother to vaccinate her son....[full story]

Sec 105 of SOPA threatens freedom of health speech, aligns with FDA Trilateral Cooperation Charter to potentially eliminate access to dietary supplements
Identifying threats to health freedom and freedom of health speech often requires connecting the dots between seemingly unrelated verbiage in one piece of legislation and a trade agreement, for instance, or reading between the lines to identify the full intent or scope of a provision or phrase added to an unrelated bill. And this is the case with the Stop Online Privacy Act (SOPA), which contains language that could one day target websites that sell, promote, or otherwise talk about the benefits of dietary supplements....[full story]

EBR Comments - Ostrander Point Wind Energy Park Proposal
On behalf of National Audubon Society representing 456 active local chapters and 408,536 members, I thank you for the opportunity to comment on the Ostrander Point Wind Energy Park Proposal, a Class 4 Wind Facility with a total expected generation capacity of 22.5 megawatts (MW).  Audubon’s mission is to protect birds, other wildlife and their habitats, and our comments focus on the potential impacts to those. National Audubon strongly supports the development of clean alternative sources of energy, including wind power, when properly sited so as to minimize risks to birds and their essential habitat. The Ostrander Point project fails to meet the standard of being properly sited, imposing unnecessary risks to many species of birds and degrading one of the most important bird areas in the world. As a result, we are strongly opposed to the development of this specific project and ask that the Ministry turn down the application at this site....[full story]

Wind turbines blow down resale value of homes: Pedlar
GRAND BEND - If you can see a wind turbine from your window, chances are your house is going to sell for a lot less money than you want. That's the message Doug Pedlar, a real estate broker with ReMax in Grand Bend, brought to about 300 people in the village recently. Pedler talked with a number of real estate professionals across the province about the impact of industrial wind turbines on home sales and found studies about the subject from around the world. He says in general, the value of a home within view of the rotating blades takes longer to sell and could sell for 30 percent less than market value....[full story]

Wind power versus rural power
Sir: The Ontario Federation of Agriculture (OFA) is calling on the provincial government to suspend the invasion of rural Ontario with industrial wind turbines.  Earlier this week, OFA took a hard look at our own concerns with wind turbines. We have always been concerned with the price paid for wind power and the fact that it is not dispatchable – it is not stored for use during peak demand periods, making it highly inefficient. This was noted by Ontario’s Auditor General in his annual report in December 2011.    ...[full story]

EPA drops jackboot on necks of couple for daring to build on their own land
Stories about overreach from Washington, D.C. abound, but just when you think you've heard them all comes yet another that makes you shake your head in disbelief and wonder just whom is supposed to be working for whom in this grand old Republic of ours. Taking into account that most of us want clean air, fresh water to drink and a sustainable environment - and that government has a role to play in ensuring these resources are preserved - there comes a point where that role grows well beyond its original intent and begins to infringe on the constitutional rights of the citizens. Just ask Mike and Chantell Sackett, who are battling the leviathan Environmental Protection Agency just to be able to build a home on land they bought years ago in Idaho. ...[full story]
