1) According to information from Germany via some German members, the telecom lobby in Germany is extremely powerful and could possibly be responsible for this funding. Of course, the telecoms want to maintain the ICNIRP guidelines which benefit the telecoms — they don’t have to redesign their products to reduce RF exposure.
ICNIRP’s Principal Patron: Germany
Provided 70-80% of Its Support in Each of Last Three Years
“ICNIRP develops exposure guidelines which are the basis for many national standards, including Germany’s.”
2) An application has been made to erect a CREST emergency communications cellular tower in Metchosin, and this notice was in a local newspaper.

Info about the CREST system can be found at:
This shows that the plans are to expand the CREST system widely throughout the Victoria area and the islands.
There are many considerations, and hopefully some of the members from Salt Spring who investigated the CREST P25 system thoroughly last year, when a tower was planned for downtown Ganges, will share some of the things they learned.
One major consideration for any new tower is that ISED policy is to allow telecom companies to install transmitters without any notification or consultation. This CREST tower could soon be loaded with transmitters and Metchosin has taken a keen interest in keeping their community as safe as possible.
There have been problems with this P25 system for years. Here is a recent article (2018) about difficulties in Indiana.
Failure to communicate: P25 radio breakdowns worry first responders
“Kokomo firefighters had to battle more than just flames Monday at a serious house fire when a malfunction made portable radio communication impossible.
Radio communication problems have plagued first responders since switching over to the P25 radio system, according to authorities from various departments.”
And there has been some indication that plans are to connect it with a US system, FirstNet, which could result in data being shared.

3) This information was provided by a member of a group in Quebec:
“There are so far 4 city councils (small cities) in Quebec that have passed a resolution demanding solely a moratorium on 5G and another one that used part of the resolution template I’ve prepared in support of some key demands in our Appeal – without naming it.”
The resolution that was passed by the 4 councils. The author generously offered it to help for presentations in BC.
