1)    Please see below a letter from Dr. Magda Havas warning about the dangers and ramifications of building a BC Hydro substation beneath a school.  I hope you will consider sharing this widely, writing to the various Ministers, School Board, etc. with your concerns. This really is a ridiculously irresponsible thing for BC Hydro to be considering.

Also, Jerry Flynn has written a very important letter to federal officials and the media. It also is below.

2)    A victory in California for 5G resisters. Verizon has withdrawn its application for 5G microcell approval in Sebastopol, California after some pretty stiff resistance by the public. Voices can be heard. If councils listen, we can achieve some results.  From someone in California:

Sebastopol, California Victory against Verizon 5G Microcells : Small Cells – http://emfsafetynetwork.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/Letter-to-Seb-Verizon-5G.pdf


Verizon has withdrawn their application for “small cell” towers in Sebastopol!

They gave no specific reason. The city manager stated they intended to deny the application, but now Verizon has backed out. We sent this letter on Tuesday.



3)    Some excellent videos of presentations that were made to the Panel doing the peer review of the NTP study. A reminder that the Panel found the study to have provided “clear evidence” (the greatest degree) of EMF being a carcinogen.

(video 07:30 minutes) Dr. Paul Heroux explaining many of the mechanisms for EMF to do harm. He states that a major study done in the 1970s had found many of these explanations but it was and still is ignored. Quite technical: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j_JAxX3ObiU

(video 08:39 minutes) Theodora Scarato speaks to the NTP report very clearly and in terms we all can understand:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cUj89OiLEmM

4)    A member suggested we could be sending info about birds, bees, and other flora and fauna to organizations that care about and protect them such as this one:

Use your voice to protect birds & bees

5)    Someone in Manitoba, who receives my updates, emailed me about interference from cell transmitters. I personally have experienced significant interference from Rogers’ FM transmitters but nothing, as far as I know, from cell transmitters. If anyone has, would you please let me know if you resolved the problem and how? Send to:  dsnoble@shaw.ca  with “cell interference” on the subject line.

“My neighbours and I have been trying to have a recent cell tower installation modified or removed. The Bell MTS antenna array, 15.5 metres above ground, is the lowest in a city residential area, situated on the rooftop of a three-storey condo building located in the midst of large old three-storey houses and 25-35 metres distant from a number of these houses. It is the most egregious installation in Winnipeg due to proximity and lateral relationship.

Bell MTS Cell Towers – Winnipeg, Manitoba – https://www.chrisd.ca/2017/11/02/bell-mts-highway-75-cell-phone-wireless-towers-signals/#.WxLao6kh2L4

Fortunately, one of the immediate neighbours is a guitar teacher and music producer who works from his backyard studio, a building which is directly in line with one of the three antenna arrays. His amplifiers were picking up data transmission from the antennas and after two months of attempts, he was able to get the attention of Bell MTS, who sent technicians to his studio. He was aware, through a guitar student who is also a CB operator, that interference with existing equipment is unlawful, and the technicians acknowledged that. They shut down the data stream and 4 of the 5 or 6 frequencies, for now.

The CB operator knew about the legislation but was not aware of how we could locate it. If you happen to know the source, or someone who might know the legislation, we would greatly appreciate your information.”

I sent this information:

Cell phones would come under ISED, formerly Industry Canada, rather than CRTC.  I have never had anyone tell me about interference from cell towers, so I cannot tell you precisely what you should be doing. First, I would read http://laws-lois.justice.gc.ca/eng/acts/R-2/page-1.html .  Under the Radio Communication Act, it gives this definition:

harmful interference means an adverse effect of electromagnetic energy from any emission, radiation or induction that

(a) endangers the use or functioning of a safety-related radiocommunication system, or

(b) significantly degrades or obstructs, or repeatedly interrupts, the use or functioning of radio apparatus or radio-sensitive equipment; (brouillage préjudiciable)

interference-causing equipment means any device, machinery or equipment, other than radio apparatus, that causes or is capable of causing interference to radiocommunication; (matériel brouilleur)

This is a starting point, and I hope you are successful in getting this removed. Odd, isn’t it, that you might be able to move something that is dangerous not because of your health concerns but, rather, because it interferes with electrical devices?

What type of interference did your neighbour have? Was it just static?

And her follow-up:

“The guitar teacher has been in contact with someone at ISED and emailed them again yesterday

Thursday, Bell MTS offered to give him new, more expensive amplifiers of a different type that doesn’t suit his needs, and to take his amplifiers in exchange. He refused. The data stream was back on last night but shut down again this morning?? Perhaps ISED is investigating.

Yes, it is indicative of government policy that existing technology is protected but not living organisms. But luckily something seems to be protected.

His amps sounded like electrometers.”

Subject: Re: Substation beneath a school!

It is my understanding that BC Hydro is revisiting the idea of constructing a substation beneath a school stating that this is safe.

I must disagree!

This is a ludicrous concept that will ultimately lead to illness among the students and staff at this school.  The substation will generate electromagnetic fields and if the levels are above 3 mG in the school environment, the risk of childhood cancers are likely to increase according to IARC (International Agency for Research on Cancer), an arm of the World Health Organization.  I suggest you read their monograph on low frequency electromagnetic fields as a class 2B carcinogen.


Also, there is evidence of impaired sperm at 1.6 mG magnetic flux density.

Furthermore, should the magnetic fields be higher than 3 mG then there is the risk of adult cancers (brain tumours, breast cancer, and leukaemia at 10 mG) and miscarriages (at 16 mG).

Some people have developed a sensitivity to electromagnetic fields and electromagnetic radiation and are electro-hyper-sensitive (EHS).  Should you have Wi-Fi in the school environment or be near cell phone antennas the risk of developing cancers and EHS increases.  Radio frequency radiation is also classified as a class 2B carcinogen.  See IARC monograph below:


You have been warned.  Whoever at the Vancouver School Board and at BC Hydro is responsible for the final decision will be held responsible for the adverse health effects and could ultimately be taken to court for negligence of duty.

Here is the legal definition of negligence:

Negligence Definition: A breach of a duty to take care. … Not only are people responsible for the intentional harm they cause (called intentional torts), but their failure to act as a reasonable person would be expected to act in similar circumstances (i.e. “negligence“) will also give rise to damages.

You have received numerous warnings and cannot continue to simply ignore them without consequences.  Please provide me with the names of those who are going to approve this process as I would like to ensure they have all the information they require to make an informed decision.  And please forward this email to those responsible for this decision with a cc to me.  Failure to do so can also be considered negligence of duty.

I am bcc’ing this email to others so that records will be available should legal proceeding be initiated in the future.

Kindly respond to this email.

Subject: Corruption is causing much of today‘s illnesses, disease epidemics and premature deaths!

Dear Editor,

If the following does not warrant an immediate, thorough national – if not international – criminal investigation, then Putin’s Russia definitely is a safer place to live! The U.S. Centers for Disease Control 2016 survey found that Autism rates jumped to 1 in 36 children, 1 in 28 boys!


Surely the New Yorker knows a competent, fearless investigative science reporter (like the celebrated Paul Brodeur) who understands the hazardous – but historically suppressed – non-thermal effects of electro-magnetic field (EMF) radiation? Distinguished non-industry scientists say that non-thermal EMFs promote and/or cause autism, ADHD, leukemia, brain tumors and virtually every form of cancer, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, ALS, miscarriages, birth deformities, suicides, depression, memory problems, etc. Yet U.S., Canadian and other Western radiation regulatory agencies all say that only thermal effects can be harmful to humans. This dishonesty enables this cabal of corrupt agencies to aggressively exploit obscenely profitable – but highly dangerous – products, such as ‘smart’ meters, cell phones, cordless phones, Wi-Fi routers, Bluetooth, GPS, baby monitors, etc., and industry’s impending, terrifying ‘5G’ technology – all of which emit hazardous  non-thermal EMF radiation!

Notwithstanding Paul Brodeur’s three excellent books: ‘The Zapping of America’; ‘Currents of Death’; and ‘The Great Power-Line Cover-up’, scientists today say that we are all guinea pigs in what amounts to the largest technological experiment – ever – in human history, without either our knowledge or consent!

In the hope that it will benefit whomever elects to fight this unparalleled corruption, I have attached my recent letter to Canada’s prime minister and his key ministers: Justice, Public Safety, Health, and Environment. I am available to help whomever might choose to pick up where Paul Brodeur left off.

Thank you for your time.
