“My Name Is Tracy” (Ontario)

Mar 12, 2012


Editor’s note:  The following is a letter from a Wind Turbine Syndrome sufferer in Ontario, to another, Sue Hobart, in Falmouth, Mass.

Hi Sue,

My name is Tracy.  I know your situation all to well.

My home sits empty in Clear Creek, Ontario.  My life of hell started in the fall of 2008.

Yesterday was a very bad day for us.  Spirits are very low.  My son and I had a discussion just last night.  We talked about people and money; people not caring about others; the humiliation we have felt; the fight that is ahead of us; the scars that will be with us for the rest of our lives.  Like yourself, my government and the wind companies have destroyed my life.  They almost killed me.  I am not out of the woods yet.

I went to my home today—my home where I cannot live.  I still have some of my things there, where I had left them.  I walked the property, looking at the trees I had planted over the years; looking back at a life that no longer exists, or ever will.  It was very sad.  I drove around the township, again surprised at yet another new real estate listing and even more vacated houses.

Approximately one in three houses are empty.  Two of the vacant homes were homes of young families with children.  I was glad they were able to leave.  Others have left; a few have passed on (died).  I consider myself fortunate that my son had the sense to get us out of there.  Today I tolerated half an hour of exposure to low frequencies.  When I left, I had started to become lethargic.  I was dizzy, nauseous.  My head hurt.  I felt such pressure.

Each day is tough.  Last night we also talked about others who had it worse than us; kids who are sick and hungry. When the going gets tough, I remind myself I am warm, I have a place to lay my head and enough food.  I take it one day at a time.  I walk, lots.  I meditate.  It helps.

I attended a meeting with our department of health on Thursday night.  As yourself, my son cannot bring himself to attend any more of these “gong shows.”  I went to support Stephana Johnston and others presenting deputations.  I returned to the place I stay, very upset and angry because of the ignorance displayed by some of the health officials.

A neighbor from home told me last night, I must not give up.  If you give up they win.  Ironically, these are the same words I said to my son just a short time earlier.  I also told him, as others have told you:  he needs to take a time out.  Rest and recharge.  I know, easier said than done

Have faith and comfort knowing there are many who are going to bat for people like us.  Hang in there.  Life may not be the same, but it will get better.

Take care,

Tracy Whitworth

    Hi Tracy,

    You know me from Queens Park (Ontario) and other rallys and protests. I always think of you and pray you and your son are OK. I got to see Stephana (Johnston) at ROMA ( Rural Ontario Mayors Association) at the Royal York Hotel. We helped with handouts and the ‘walk out’. Then I saw her again at Queen’s Park for the 5th time an MPP has put forth a motion for a provincial moratorium. The upper viewing gallery was full. When the Liberals and NDP joined together to vote it down, we stood up quietly, turned around and kept our backs to them for the slow count of 15. . . . They noticed.. The message was clear, “You have turned your backs on us; now we shun you forevermore.”

    I think the Convention Centre, FIT (Feed In Tariff) will be very loud. Thousands of us want to march and face the wind industry, those ‘Trough Mother Suckers,’ head on. CANWEA (Canadian Wind Energy Assoc.) will not be ready for us. Lots of signs. Here are some samples:

    “CANWEA rob you?” No!

    “McGuinty Pissing in the Wind”

    “Non Confidence STEP DOWN NOW!”

    Bought some bumper stickers today. A picture of Premier McGuinty surrounded by IWT’s and big letters saying, “Does this Ass make my truck look bigger?” It stuck me as funny and made me laugh; it has been a long time. Then I thought, “Gee, did the pants I wore to Queen’s Park make my ass look big?” I hope so, because that’s all the Liberals saw from the floor of the Legislative Assembly.

    Take care, Tracy. Miss you. Hope we see you April 3rd. We sure need your “you know what and vinegar”!

    Hi Tracy,

    I’m sorry to hear things are so bad for you and the people in your Town. I and my families have had the same problems here in Australia, in a small town of Waterloo, after they build these Monsters. Thirty-seven 3MW units on a 18 km ridge overlooking our town.

    It took only a few weeks after they turned them on, till things started getting wired. We didn’t put it all together at first, because most of us in the surrounding farms were in favor of this new, clean, cheap energy. LOL!

    My brother had to move after 3 months. If he had not, he would NOT be here with us today. His heart specialist told him at last month’s checkup not to go back to his home, not even to go to keep it clean. He is staying in a caravan (RV) with no power and running water, 25 k m away from his home. If he comes within 10 km of Waterloo, he starts to feel ill.

    I lasted 3 months longer than he did, and it got too much for me. The headaches became unbearable, my blood pressure went through the roof. When my 17-year-old daughter came to stay with me, she began getting headaches from the turbines after being here 3 days, and her blood pressure went so high that I took her to the doctor. When I told him, that I think our problems came from the Turbines, he would not believe us, even with month of records that I showed him. After looking at the records he said, “I don’t believe it’s from the turbines,” adding, “if you’re better when you’re not at your home, then just move!”

    So, I moved my daughter to Adelaide to stay with her sister, and I, too, soon moved to Adelaide. I live in my mother’s shed, and keep on fighting.

    We have been declared a “disaster zone” in and around Waterloo, but all we get (from the government) are the same stories as you good people over there, in Canada.

    I have lost everything that I worked for, nevertheless I will not stop fighting. There are a lot of us victims in this big world, so don’t give up! Every day there is new evidence coming out about how bad these turbines are for health, and how useless they are for producing energy, and NOT Green, and not cheap.

    Stay strong and well!

    P.S. I’m happy that you’re back online Calvin! And the new website looks great! More late nights on the laptop! LOL!

    A few words on “sedition”: defined in the Merriam Webster Dictionary as “the causing of discontent, insurrection, or resistance against a government.” Also a few words on “holocaust”: “a thorough destruction …”

    Well, if we don’t have the seeds for sedition here, as I witness these forcible uprootings of people from their beloved homes, the destruction of their peaceful lives by the sanction of “greengreed” driven Liberal/fascist governments, then perhaps someone wiser than I am could explain why the personal pursuit of happiness has been tossed into the crapper for the “greater good”?

    Did you think the monster wind turbines would reduce the “carbon footprint”? Pure green hot gas. If this planet is to be saved, it is to be saved from the likes of you “green shirts.”

    I guess all we can do is keep on telling the truth… That’s our only defense. I pray for all Sisters and Brothers living this nightmare, to find a heaven in a nice quiet rural turbine free area… Sort of like we had before this big blow job. (Sorry, but what better description?)

    This is another REAL story from REAL people and just underlines the massive crime that is being perpetrated worldwide by criminals in government and scammers in the financial world.

    Once this scam unravels and the politicians and investors who have committed these crimes are brought to justice, the punishment should fit the crime!

    Instead of incarceration inside a nice cushy quiet prison, these convicts should be forced to live under house arrest for years in an abandoned home within one of their Green Wind Farms until they go quite MAD!

    Hi Melodie,

    Yes, I remember you. You are quite a firecracker! Thanks for the continued support. I would like to attend the rally in Toronto. There is a bus going from Haldimand-Norfolk I would like to get on. The contact has not replied to my email.

    I would also like to purchase a couple of stickers. My emails are returned. How do I get these? Is there an email address I can contact you at? (Editor: mmburkett@gmail.com.)



    I am sorry to hear of your misfortune. I am looking for a new “shed” myself. I have the summer months off and am considering living like a vagabond and worrying about accommodations in September.

    I am in this for the long haul; I have no acceptable alternative. It’s going to be one heck of a ride; I guarantee it will play out in our favor. There will be justice.


    Hello Sue,

    I hope you are hanging in there.


    Hello Calvin and Nina!

    It’s been rough going; I have had two intense takotsubo cardiomyothy attacks; the most recent being in February. I really thought it was going to be my time to go. Bp was 170/120. It was a very brutal experience. I was actually very scared at that time. Aaron stayed close with me.

    Don’t be sorry, I am not wanting sympathy. This is reality, my experience and will continue and affect a larger part of the population if the industrial wind turbine movement continues to grow. I know from my experience, the extended medical attention I have required. Health care will become a much bigger issue than it currently is.

    Our governments are nothing but a mafia. Organized crime is their game. Fight fire with fire.

    Take care everyone.

    Every time I read blogs like this one I get extremely angry. I support your fight and will do any and everything I can to help bring an end to this absurdity. It is fraudulent and criminal and all of those perpetuating this crime against humanity must be held responsible. I have started a blog, http://www.tiltingatwind.blogspot.com just as a way to express my frustration. I would love to have you folks comment there and tell your stories. My best wishes for all of you.
