1) A podcast with Dr. Paul Heroux and Frank Clegg about cell towers in Pittsfield, Mass. According to Dr. Heroux, the evidence is clear that living within 500 meters of a cell tower will exacerbate cancers.

2) An excellent article as part of a series by Patricia Burke, “5G Earth Day”. We’ve all heard how 5G is needed to allow people to work and attend school from home, how it will improve the lives of those currently without reliable internet, etc. But the problems caused by the proliferation of EMF are being hidden — profit at any price, even the health of our planet. There is an excellent summary presented in a poster format. I will ask for permission to use.

5G And EARTH DAY Countdown: Is Tech Cooking The Planet?
“5G infrastructure investment is being promoted as a solution to global warming and/or climate change. It is being forcefully imposed on communities, with increasing abuses of power, and violations of community rights.
As part of this ongoing series counting down to Earth Day we have looked at misleading myths surrounding “progress” in “smart” wireless 5G and sensor-driven transportation.
Steep investment in 5G infrastructure and operating systems is being promoted to address “urgent” health and environmental challenges. The urgency is being used to justify a demand for expediency that overrides local control and human rights, and prohibits the consideration of adverse health effects.
5G must logically be scrutinized for health and environmental impacts.”
3) Below is a message from people on Salt Spring Island, requesting help in preventing a Rogers/Crest tower which will hold many RF transmitters, some of which will be for 5G, in addition to CREST. Having first responder transmitters partner with Rogers or some other telecom is deceptive. People want and need to have good first responder communications devices, but shouldn’t have to agree to having dozens of commercial transmitters to get it.
This message is from the 5G Free Salt Spring Collective.

SHORT TEMPLATE LETTER TO SEND by Friday, APRIL 16, Noon to:
and cc your message to:
Subject: Rogers-CREST Channel Ridge Tower
I strongly oppose the Roger’s CREST tower proposed for Channel Ridge, Salt Spring.
. OUR HEALTH – Peer reviewed science shows wireless radiation harms people, plants and wildlife
. OUR ENVIRONMENT – Wireless technology & infrastructure uses a massive amount of energy and is not “Green”
. OUR DATA PRIVACY & SECURITY – Wireless systems are easily hacked
. PROXIMITY TO HOMES – The nearest residence is just 50 metres away
. THE SCOPE – This is a significant commercial Roger’s tower, with CREST planning on adding equipment to a very small portion of it
. Limiting the electrosmog on our island, especially 5G
. CREST in building its own tower, with no commercial antennas allowed
