1)  A member advised that Telus will be hosting an information session on “new emerging technologies benefitting communities” in Maple Ridge on May 28, 5:30-7:30 pm. It will be in the Conference Room at The Act, 11944 Haney Place. Everyone is invited. This is a good chance to ask (and tell) about microcells. The hard sell will be on, trying to convince everyone the transmitters are safe, 5G is wonderful, Wi-Fi is your friend, etc. If you go, I hope you will take some information to hand out in exchange. It is an opportunity to express concern as a well-informed customer.  Please see member’s letter below.

2)   A fire that the Fire Department says was started by the smeter burned 2 homes but, fortunately, no one was injured. I will attempt to find out what type of smeter it was, but it is hard to determine in Ontario. The info I was able to find showed a Sensus meter by Barrie’s utility company [Alectra Utilities Corporation – https://www.powerstream.ca/], but these smeters were removed from much of Ontario after a few fires.  If I can confirm the type, I will let you know. [Since 2007, Alectra Utilities (formerly PowerStream) has installed more than 345,000 Sensus smart meters consisting of three different model types. We do not use the specific model recalled by the ESA. – https://www.powerstream.ca/customers/safety-first/esa-sensus-meter-recall.html]

3)   A new report concludes that all living things are threatened by EMR / EMF.


Electromagnetic radiation from power lines and phone masts poses ‘credible’ threat to wildlife, report finds

“Electromagnetic radiation from power lines, wi-fi, phone masts and broadcast transmitters poses a ‘credible’ threat to wildlife, a new report suggests, as environmentalists warned the 5G roll out could cause greater harm.

An analysis of 97 studies by the EU-funded review body EKLIPSE concluded that radiation is a potential risk to insect and bird orientation and plant health.”

Subject: Telus ‘information session’ on FTTP / Small cells

Maple Ridge City Council https://www.mapleridge.ca/942/Meet-Your-Council

Hello Gordy:

Thanks for this information.

May 28 is the day after tomorrow, hardly time to prepare. My knowledge of FTTP / small cells is limited, Ted is more knowledgeable, and Chris very knowledgeable. Fibre is good news, but I think they run it to the telephone pole then irradiate the neighbourhood with 5G after that point. That is very bad news. Like smart meters, they want this done before anyone knows anything about it.

I question why a ‘non disclosure’ agreement was needed (for whose protection?) and why closed meetings are being held on a topic of vital concern to all. Maybe we have abandoned any pretense of being a democracy.

Why did Telus ‘baulk’ at going to a public ‘consultation’? If their technology is safe, whatever would they be afraid of? And why is this meeting no longer a ‘consultation’ but an ‘information session’? I assume it will be another one-way good news session where no questions on health are permitted.

The city should demand proof of personal liability insurance from Telus regarding their wireless products. My understanding is the largest insurance companies in the world, who employ the best actuarial research teams in the world, will not insure wireless products. They compare wireless to asbestos, with a similar latency period. If you examine the annual reports of many U.S. wireless providers (search the https://ehtrust.org/ website for details), they are warning their shareholders of possible losses from impending lawsuits. The move to co-locate antennas onto City property or right-of-ways may be an industry tactic to share impending legal liability (see Harry Lehmann letters:


Throughout the USA, states are preempting the rights of Cities to right-of-ways so they can deploy their for profit technologies before any health testing can be done.  Industry knows their time window for deployment is limited.

The latest consensus from independent science and the best, most recent and most extensive studies ever done (National Toxicology Program study, French CERENAT study, Italian Ramazzini study) show a definite correlation with cancer and other tumors and effects. Brain tumors in the UK have doubled in the last twenty years. But you have to search for this information. Health Canada and our Public Health Office are ‘captured agencies’ and in the service of the wireless industry, as they were with tobacco and asbestos for 50 years. You have to be willing to see through the deceptions and lies at work here at every level, and think for yourself. I don’t think the City wishes to do that. It’s easier to follow the crowd. But the crowd is going to lead the City to the courtroom, and the City will not be able to prove it ‘didn’t know’. If the city permits this technology to be released on unwilling participants, I suspect the ultimate probability of litigation against the City is in the order of 100%. In the US, the lawyers are already lining up for the action…  https://www.cancercellphonelawsuit.com/

This is really not difficult. It’s intentionally extremely complex, but in essence, it is simple. Wireless is not a safe technology. There is no proof of safety, and undeniable evidence of harm. There is not, and will never be, scientific consensus on this. 100% proof resides only in logic and mathematics, not science. There is no scientific proof that smoking causes lung cancer. But you have to ask… would any reasonable person, who investigates the area of wireless health effects in depth, come to a conclusion of probable harm? And the answer is absolutely yes. There is no other possible outcome any intelligent and unbiased person could come to, unless they actively allow themselves to be deceived. I’m sorry about that. I have nothing against Telus personally and no interest in impeding anyone, but this is an active assault on the health of an entire population. The City wants to be seen as a technology leader. It we produced a safe cellular technology we would be, and the world would beat a path to our door. But first we have to have the courage to look directly at the problem.

If Telus wanted to partner with the City in handing out asbestos on every street corner, would the City say yes to that? Telus needs to go away and produce a safe product. If they ran fibre directly to every home, the problem would be solved. People like me would go away and shut up, and the City could rest assured it has done the right thing. But I suspect Telus can make a lot more money with wireless than with fibre, and they don’t give a damn about public health. It’s easier to flood the airwaves with another propaganda blitz of furry little animals telling us what a nice and kind and caring company they are.

I’m sure some of us will show up Monday and go through the motions once again. I’ll leave it to you if you want to share this email with the other council members, I think they are all pretty tired of me, as I’m tired of the lack of leadership shown on this topic. If we focus on the health effects, the right path will appear. But Telus will try to focus us everywhere else but there, for obvious reasons.

Thank you.


PS: Do you like trees? Here’s another load of bad news that just came in this morning. If it kills the DNA cells in trees, I assume it likely kills DNA cells in kids too.
