1) From a member in response to VOIP phones replacing hard wired landlines in last night’s update. This raises the issue of a weak internet signal which could mean unreliable phone service even if the power is on.

about your #1, our family in Australia has had this forced on them. [https://stopsmartmetersbc.com/2017-10-05-pressure-to-replace-landlines-with-voip/]
The call goes off-line every 5 minutes (for about 20 seconds), while their computer system gets rebooted. Depends how many users in the area at one time. Makes for interesting conversation, disappearing mid-sentence. Back to the old times like when we shared party lines.
How frustrating. But the biggest threat, as you mentioned, is when the power is out you have no phone.”
2) Article about the increasing number of petitions submitted to the federal Auditor General about wireless devices and RF. I hope you will provide a comment – most so far are pro cell phones, and from very poorly informed people. I’m surprised that there are no petitions from BC with so many concerned and well-informed people in our group.

More Canadians petitioning the government about fear of cellphone radiation
A growing number of Canadians are very concerned about being zapped by radiation from their cellphones, baby monitors and wireless internet routers
3) A quick update on my smeter Fire Report. It has been more than a month now since I hand-delivered a hard copy (all 700 pages in binders) of my report and evidence to Premier Horgan’s office. To date, I’ve received not even a word of acknowledgement. At the same time, I sent via registered mail the same hard copies in binders to Energy Minister Mungall, Infrastructure Minister Trevena (to whom the Fire Commissioner reports) and to Sonia Furstenau (Green Party), and shortly thereafter emailed copies were sent to every MLA. Again, not one response or acknowledgement. I believe this confirms that not one of our elected officials is taking the issue of our safety and the hazard posed by smeters seriously.
One member has written to his MLA, and I would ask that each of you do the same thing. The evidence has been provided so they can’t say they didn’t know. They can only say they don’t care.
4) In Saskatchewan, a pilot project with commercial smeters is planned. The meters have been “safety tested”, according to this article. If that is so, that is far more than the testing done to our residential smeters. I will share any info I can find about the type of tests that were done.
SaskPower launches non-residential smart meter pilot
“SaskPower and a third party have completed safety testing on the non-residential smart meters that are being installed. About 500 will be installed on the sites of two participating industrial customers and a number of SaskPower and SaskEnergy facilities.”
5) In the UK, where the level of knowledge about IoT is quite high, people are concerned about using “smart” devices that will gather data and invade privacy.
Survey: UK consumers wary of smart home products
“Over three-quarters of UK consumers (76 percent) are concerned about the impact of connected devices in the home, according to a new survey. The research, carried out by price comparison website MoneySuperMarket, found that most people are worried about smart home devices collecting data without approval.”

Subject: 700 page Fire report press release
October 6, 2017
Dear Ms Popham – the fires continue and the denials along with it. You had asked us to keep you informed re this. After the first dozen new fires, we have not done this despite the recurring fires as we have been away. Ms Sharon Noble who followed, completed and documented this report did it all at no cost to taxpayers. It is 700 pages of documented evidence of fires and needs to be addressed. The taxpayers need to know they have dangerous fire-causing gadgets attached to their homes. This is apart from the microwave radiation of which the evidence continues to mount in the form of double blind, peer reviewed research done and published by international scientists. It is time Canada stopped being the laughing stock of the scientific world!~ I know you understand the dangers, so please put this issue at the head of your agenda. Please see below for synopsis and pdf files.
Thank you again for all your time in this matter!
(the Press Release itself was sent to Ms. Popham.)

Subject: Petition article concerning cellphone radiation – what does all this electromagnetic hash mean to us? and, how come?
Good morning, Ms. Maura Forrest,
We note your article in the National Post dated October 4, 2017, “More Canadians petitioning the government about fear of cellphone radiation”. http://nationalpost.com/news/politics/more-canadians-petitioning-the-government-about-fear-of-cellphone-radiation
You may be interested to know that what is now known as Safety Code 6 is a transfer from Industry Canada of technical guidelines developed in the 1970s to ensure that telephone and telecommunication microwave transceiver tower installations (Bell, CNCP Telecommunications, and like utilities) would be so positioned as not to interfere with each other in their optical line of sight. We still see some of these links on towers as white drum-like. Before satellite services, these units were the core of Canada’s coast-to-coast-to-cast telecommunications, including Canadian Press, CBC and CTV – as well as for high quality telephone system. The purpose of these guidelines was only for assuring optimal signal conditions, in all weather conditions, over long distances apart the towers; there was no purpose associated with health, other that no structure – including human and flora would hinder the line of sight of these transcontinental beams.
For administrative reasons, these guidelines were taken over by “Health” Canada (then with another nomenclature) as also applying for the growing number of federal workers exposed to microwaves: military personnel, security services, medical services, field operation staff, those exposed to microwave ovens, walkie-talkies, radio and TV station facilities, banking and computer system, etc.. By chance, the field intensities adopted from Industry Canada were associated with thermal effect (basically, cooking, with certain durations). This guideline also presumes healthy, athletic Caucasian male of typical height and weight in Canada (such as soldier, firefighter, athlete) in their prime age – and the time it would take such an individual to increase their whole body temperature by 1 degree Celsius within 6 minutes. As you know, federal employees, at work, do not include infants, children, pregnant women, the sick, and the elderly, who, as you know make up an important proportion of the population. Also note that most Canadians are exposed for more than 6 minutes at a time to microwave emissions. Microwaves, to a lesser degree that radioactivity and X-rays, have cumulative absorption effects, statistically over a lifetime. So, even small density effects accumulate over time, resulting in symptoms after some duration, rather than immediate changes such as blood pressure and temperature gradients.
Also, when both the Industry Canada and Health Canada issued their guidelines, there were only a few hundred transceiver towers in all of Canada, less than a 1,000 Radio and TV transmitters, and several dozen radar sites. Now we are immersed in a maze of electromagnetic hash from multi-directions from thousands of towers, hundred of thousands of devices associated with wireless transmitters using competitive links by private companies, tens of millions of microwave devices used at distances close to our bodies and sensitive organs such as eyes, brains, reproductive organs, hearts, for which the guidelines have not adjusted for the cumulative (both in duration and in emitting and directional sources), multiple frequency bands, and their superimposition (in that modulation on a frequency can augment into pulses of higher power density, by about 10 times in their absorption by living bodies), nor sometimes critical humidity conditions, which in their turn can augment power density beyond the federal guidelines but about 4 to 10 times conditions otherwise monitored in “lab conditions at room temperature”.
The thermal effects are known since the WWII days. They number 8, and include induction of ionic currents, temperature, dipole induction, molecular agitation and friction (which is the effect that carbonises in microwave ovens).
The non-thermal effects are much more numerous and biologically significant. Health Canada has admitted in Court testimony that their Safety Code 6, and their scope does not regard non-thermal effects at all. However, non-thermal effects have been scrupulously examined for more than 10 years by the European Union, through their Council, after parliamentary committee research – as well as observed by tens of thousands of medical practivioners in dozens of countries from their diagnosis of their patients). The European guidelines, since 2011 have resolved into a exposure limit of 0.1 microwatt/cm2, contrary to Safety Code 6 600.0 to 1,000 microwatt/square centimeter.
Note that background exposure levels for the full spectrum in Toronto region’s urban area roads and sidewalks range from about 0.05 minimum to a general 4.0 – 10.0 microwatt/cm2, and, along the Gardiner Expressway, between Spadina and Sherbourne, up to 40,000 microwatt/cm2, which includes emissions from compact lights, transceivers, cellphones in cars and pedestrians and the CN tower transmitters.
Only as recently as 2000, the microwave and radio-frequency emissions in Toronto were 0.001 to 0.003 microwatt/cm2.
The non-thermal effects come in the manner of 3 wave effects and 18 non-wave effects. They include demodulation of tissue, cells, change in the potential of cells, induction of electric currents, tendency for change of temperature (at a slower rate), orientation of living cells, piezo-electric effects and magnetostrictive effects (significant for blood), chemical effects, including rate of reactions, changes in the lymphatic, blood and biosolution flow in vessels, resonance with geomagnetic as well as bio magnetic fields (such as in blood magnetite) and interaction with ferromagnetic materials, including medical implants. This is discussed in detail in the attached National Research Council document (see the last chart at the end of the research study), that was commissioned by Cabinet in the 1970s before the takeover of Safety Code 6 from Industry Canada‘s technical guideline. https://stopsmartmetersbc.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/NRC-EMF-Non-thermal-Effect-Flow-Chart-EnvironmentalPollutionByMicrowaveRadiation-APotentialThreatToHumanHealth-J.-Bigu-del-Blanco-C.-Romero-Sierra-J.A.-Tanner-April-1973.pdf
As you may observe, Canadians, the greatest users of wireless technology worldwide, are being exposed continuously to new emitters and with the 5G (“fifth generation”) Internet-of-Things (rather than humans) slated for 2020, they will be exposed to refrigerator sized emitters every 100 meters or so on sidewalks to accommodate a further ten-fold increase in data (and thus at least analogous higher pulsed density to be absorbed by human bodies) top permit self-driving vehicles, which in turn will also transmit fields. According to experts, the signal density per cubic meter will be so elevated that it may become impossible for all the devices in the Internet-of-Things to operate properly for failure to receive/transmit critical data info. For such conditions there are not enough studies available; in fact the core engineering fundamentals for 5G are not yet fully designed not tested as yet. We will appreciate the full extent of impact on society only after exposure, and sometime in the future. There is considerable pressure from investment circles to speed everything up, while ensuring no responsibility for the general public for individuals’ well being.
It is hoped that you may appreciate this information. We were asked by our founder, Senator Chesley W. Carter, scientist and chair of the Standing Committee on Health as well as another Senate committee of Science to have our interdisciplinary, independent international collaborative network of advanced scientific thinking to continuously monitor and review electromagnetic field issues, which even in the 1970s were considered to be among the most important concerns on earth.
