1) Another cell tower — this one 61 meters tall — in Coombs. These things are going viral, and it has to be because of 5G. Why else, all of a sudden? People need to get to the people considering leasing the land to the telecoms (Rogers in this case) and let them know that they will be signing a long-term contract, usually 20 years, and will not be able to break it even if a lawsuit is brought. And as more people become aware of the health risks and people become sick, there will be more lawsuits brought against the property owner who will not have an insurance to protect him.
Controversial cell tower proposal in Coombs clears another hurdle
“A towering issue that angered some Coombs residents may soon be considered by the Regional District of Nanaimo for recommendation to the Minister of Innovation, Science, Economic Development for approval.

Rogers Communications Inc. has a proposal to erect a 61-metre, self-supported telecommunications tower on private land in Coombs, located at 2540 Alberni Highway.
The Electoral Area Services Committee, at its meeting on Tuesday, May 14, said that Rogers had satisfactorily completed all requirements including consultation with the public. Staff also indicated that the regional district concurs with the land use of Rogers’ plan to construct a wireless telecommunications facility. Before all of these developments are relayed to Rogers and the ministry, regional district staff’s recommendations will still have to go through the RDN committee of the whole for discussion, before presenting it to the RDN board for approval.”
2) Devra Davis responds to the ridiculous New York Times front page opinion piece accusing those warning about the dangers of 5G (and RF in general) of being Russian dupes.
5G: The Unreported Global Threat
“Finding such a slanted report in the Times, is especially disconcerting to those who have long believed that that newspaper printed all the news that was fit to print without prejudice, and that the ‘truth is now more important than ever.’ Indeed it is the truth, and our capacity to agree on what that constitutes, that is imperiled by stories such as Broad has filed, and others are now echoing.”
3) A sales pitch for 5G that admits to things people deserve to know!! These “laser-like” signals will be blasted by phased array antennae that make these milliwaves stronger and travel farther — capable of penetrating everything.
These Mysterious “M-Boxes” — Hidden in Your Neighborhood — Are About to Spark a $12 Trillion 5G Cash Rush..
“This is a HUGE upgrade on the single antenna that the old cell towers use.
Instead of a cluttered, maxed-out network that’s pathetically slow with spotty reception because of weak, sporadic signals…
This multiple-antenna tech provides you with your own personal connection by blasting out ultra-fast, uber-accurate mmWaves.
These mmWaves are like an invisible wire going directly to your mobile device, driverless car, or tablet.
And remember, these “M-Boxes” can be placed anywhere…
enabling the innovative tech inside them to deliver these laser-like signals at street-level, directly into stores, offices, commercial buildings, and residences….
They can send powerful laser beam signals PRECISELY where they need to go, in double-quick time….
In Canada, they’re working with TELUS to bring these super-connectors to Vancouver, British Columbia, Ontario, and Montreal.
4) Government officials, whether elected or appointed, whether local, provincial or federal, have a duty to protect the public. Failure to do so is negligence and, in some cases, could be considered a crime. We should repeatedly remind officials of this, perhaps give this quote, whenever we write to them.
Quote from linked article below:
“Perhaps our elected representatives should be reminded that they have a legal obligation to ensure the well-being of all of their citizens. Renowned University of British Columbia ecologist William Rees (of “environmental footprint” fame) argues that government officials who ignore their duties may be guilty of criminal negligence. Rees notes that “the Criminal Code (Section 219) is clear that lack of intent to harm is no defence if the damage results from conscious acts performed in careless disregard for others: ‘Everyone is criminally negligent who (a) in doing anything, or (b) in omitting to do anything that it is his duty to do, shows wanton or reckless disregard for the lives or safety of other persons’.””

5) A member advised me that Thetis Island, like Salt Spring, is governed by the Islands Trust whose governing objective is:
Our Provincial Object
The reasons the province created the Islands Trust in 1974 are still valid today –
‘to preserve and protect the trust area and its unique amenities and environment for the benefit of residents of the trust area and of the province generally, in cooperation with municipalities, regional districts, improvement districts, other persons and organizations and the Government of British Columbia’.
Perhaps the quote from 4) above should be sent to the Trust.

I am writing in response to your invitation for public comment on the proposed 50 m self support cellular tower on Thetis Island. With the rapidly growing body of scientific evidence on the harmful health effects associated with cell tower signals and the cell phones that receive them, why would you continue to build more towers? I am including two articles that support my opinion that more cell towers are not needed or wanted, especially in light of the dwindling number of communities where people with extreme electromagnetic sensitivity can live.
Wireless Wisdom: Unplugging for more than mindfulness
The digital world has taken over our lives. There are millions of apps to explore, snaps to share, friends to “Like,” emojis to text, and emails to follow us wherever we roam. Undoubtedly, this communication stream increases our productivity. But what are the consequences of this wirelessly interconnected world—not just for our social selves, but for our physical bodies, as well?
