1) A new documentary “Thank you for calling” which is about the telecom industry. Here is a trailer:
I have not seen it, but hope to. It can be rented or purchased at:

2) In an attempt to connect with some environmental groups, I am hoping that some of you might know of some beekeepers who might not know about the effect of EMR on bees, and who might be interested enough to share widely among his/her contacts. Here is more info about this, even before 5G.

Disappearing Bees & Birds: Environmental Effects of EMF Radiation
“Climate change, widespread use of pesticides and genetically modified crops, and habitat change/loss all play a role. There is also mounting evidence that the global adoption of EMF (Electromagnetic Field) radiation-emitting wireless technology is partially to blame.
For example, a 2011 study carried out in India observed six honeybee colonies over a period of ten days. Three of the colonies were exposed to EMFs via cell phones placed in the hives for ten minutes a day. The other three colonies received no exposure. Researchers were looking for changes in the bees’ flight behavior, and in the queen’s productivity. The differences between the two groups turned out to be startling.
After 10 days, none of the bees in the EMF-exposed colonies returned to their hives, while no change in return rate was noticed in the control group. And the queen bees experienced a dive in egg laying, dropping down to about 100 per day; those in the latter group continued to lay around 350.”
Impact of mobile phones on the density of honeybees
“Insects and other small animals would naturally be the first to obviously be affected by this increase in ambient radiation since naturally they have smaller bodies and hence less flesh to be penetrated by exposure to microwaves. The behavioral pattern of bees alters when they are in close proximity to mobile phones and towers. The vanished bees are never found, but thought to die singly far from home. Bee keepers were told that several hives have been abruptly abandoned. If towers and mobile phones increase the honey bees might be wiped out in ten years. Radiation of 900 MHz is highly bioactive, causing significant alternation in the physiological function of living organisms (Aday, 1975).”
3) I am not including this article because of Covid or the vaccine debate. Rather, there are statements from an expert that applies to Health Canada and its “statutory” responsibility. This would strengthen, I believe, our argument that Health Canada is being negligent and there should be some legal authority who can hold this agency guilty of not following the law by compromising the public’s health re. EMR.
Potential COVID-19 vaccine has re-energized anti-vaccination groups, health experts warn
“Dr. Natasha Crowcroft, a vaccine expert at the University of Toronto’s Dalla Lana School of Public Health and a senior technical adviser with the World Health Organization….
It’s up to each country’s regulatory agency, such as Health Canada, to determine whether a vaccine can be used and be independent of any industry influence.
“Safety cannot be compromised,” Crowcroft said. “Health Canada will see to that. It is their statutory responsibility.”“
4) The FCC siding with the telecom to eliminate the public’s “right to know” about cell phone concerns is like Health Canada participating in a lawsuit to support the wireless industry, providing incorrect information.
“Not Heavy Handed” FCC Sides With Wireless Industry in Historic Berkeley “Cell Phone Right to Know” Case
“The US FCC has filed a brief siding with the CTIA wireless industry against the historic Berkeley Cell Phone Right To Know Law.
The FCC contends that Berkeley is pre-empted from enacting a law requiring consumers being provided information at point of sale. In addition the FCC argues that ensuring consumers have the information is not necessary.
The FCC Brief states, “The FCC has also determined that the information on its website and in cell phone user manuals about RF exposure is adequate to inform consumers of this issue without overwarning or creating the false impression that RF emissions from FCC-certified cell phones are unsafe. ””
