2020-11-27 The Cover-up of Site C

1) Not EMR but BC Hydro. After having the BC Utilities Commission reject applications for 2 programs, the Liberal Government under Campbell decided to ignore democracy and the public by passing the Clean Energy Act in 2010. These 2 projects were/are Site C and smeters. Contrary to public interest and due diligence, there was no oversight by BCUC and still hasn’t been a reckoning of costs. On Thursday there was a webinar hosted by Narwhal, to which I listened, learning a lot about the many and ongoing problems with Site C. It is still far from being completed and some of the destruction of the Peace Valley could be prevented, as could some of the billions of dollars yet to be spent. The cost is now in excess of $12 billion. I hope you will listen to the speakers in the 80 min video and consider writing to your MLA, Energy Minister (new cabinet) and Prem. John Horgan about this dangerous, expensive fiasco. Contacts for these people can be found at www.stopsmartmetersbc.com under “contacts”

‘The coverup continues’: critics slam B.C.’s handling of Site C dam project’
“The coverup continues. Site C should be cancelled.”

That sentiment from former BC Hydro president and CEO Marc Eliesen was the major takeaway from our panel discussion on Thursday about the future of the Site C dam, the most expensive public infrastructure project in B.C.’s history.

We organized the event to address the influx of questions following our B.C. reporter Sarah Cox’s blockbuster investigation (see below) into the troubles facing the dam. Cox obtained freedom of information documents that revealed major problems with the project were kept from the public for more than a year.


B.C. Introduces Clean Energy Act

“Opposition New Democrat energy critic John Horgan said the act weakens the utilities commission and gives the provincial cabinet more power to control mega projects.

“The projects that are exempt are the only significant projects on hydro’s inventory for the next 20 years, and none of them will have the appropriate oversight,” he said.

In 2009, the utilities commission rejected BC Hydro’s plans to buy power and Horgan said the commission is now being punished for thwarting the government’s will.”


Sarah Cox’s investigative report Oct. 21, 2020

“Top B.C. government officials knew Site C dam was in serious trouble over a year ago: FOI docs”

“Even so, the documents paint a picture of a project rife with growing geotechnical issues and risks as well as safety and quality concerns — and facing a rising risk of cost overruns and schedule delays — long before the COVID-19 pandemic shut down much of the province and temporarily scaled back the Site C dam workforce in mid-March….

“It looks like we’re going to lose $10.7 billion on this project. That would take care of the homelessness problem, unequitable incomes, First Nations health and several other things, all at once.” …

Two new expert reports, including one written by McCullough, conclude British Columbians will save money if the Site C dam is immediately cancelled by the new provincial government following the Oct. 24 election. ‘”

2) Cece Doucette and the people of Massachusetts have continued to fight having smeters placed on their homes and the “modernization of the Electric Grid”, which we know entails implementing 5G. She has kindly shared the proceedings which are continuing with the Department of Public Utilities. This includes the testimony re. smeter issues by scientists, doctors, legislators and the members of the public. Cece thought that perhaps some of the testimony might be helpful or could be used as reference since this is part of the public record. Go into this link and enter 20-69 in the “Enter Docket Number” box.

3 Important letters re. 5G

Given that no one can opt out of continuous exposure to wireless radiation, the industry is, in effect, conducting an “experiment” on our children and on all global citizens without informed consent — a breach of the 1947 Nuremberg Code 8, and of the United Nations’ International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.

Three letters that may prove useful for public outreach.

1. Open Letter to the United Nations from Stop 5G International
2. Response Letter to the EU signed by 72 Organizations Dedicated to Protecting Public Health
3. Letter to the United Nations and World Health Organization from Professor Olle Johansso

Radiation Measurements – Maple Ridge 2020-09-18

I was requested to measure the RF Radiation in various parts of Maple Ridge (MR) by a person wanting to move here.  So I decided to drive about and see what RFR levels were evident.

I used a GigaHertz HF59B with the omni antenna and recorded the radiation levels using a GigaHertz NFA1000. (Thanks Hans). The meter and antenna were sitting in the passenger seat.

The readings are in µW/m².  The meter maxed out at 300  µW/m² so the max may be 400, 600, or even 1000  µW/m². I shall have to re-do the drive with meter set to read the higher RFR levels.
1 - Leaving my house walking to my car on Kanaka Way - lots of WiFi from neighbours.
2 - Drive North on 232St - low levels - residential.
3 - Corner of Dewdney Trunk Road (DT) and 230St - HiRFR - WiFi from the Tim Hortons on corner
4 - 2 blocks S on 230St parked - very low levels - Close to Haney Pioneer Village
5 - DT and 228St - v. high RFR (?)
6 - South on 224St passing Lee Building which has many cell transmitters on roof - really bad.
7 - Further south on 224St high RFR levels - still in sight of the Lee building.
8 - Residential areas in North MR - LOW levels - Lots of trees - no sight of cell towers.
9 - DT East from Laity to 224St - v.v.high from tall apartment building at 222St with cell trans.
9+ - Parking at Friends in Need Food Bank - low RFR levels

1 - Very high levels of RFR near cell towers.  I have made several prior surveys in apartments close by.  Not a place I would ever live.
2 - Many places in residential with acceptable low levels of RFR.
