Last summer, Health Minister Leona Aglukaak announced a $1.8-million study on the health effects of wind turbines.
John Andrews of wind developer IPC Energy in Ontario asked if the department was doing a similar study involving the oilsands, he was told the oilsands come under provincial jurisdiction.
