John Harrison recently submitted a report on shadow flicker to the Loyalist Council. It noted that (1) flicker is well recognized as a nuisance, (2) the Council has the power to regulate nuisances, and (3) the Provincial GEA does not address flicker, thus allowing the Council the freedom to do so. A typical regulation would limit the flicker to 30 hours per year at any residence, and eliminate it on public roads, where it can present a hazard to drivers, and John recommended that the Council take action to protect the residents and drivers on Amherst Island.
How much of a problem would flicker be on Amherst Island? The clickable picture below gives an indication of the potential.
