1) Many of us will be asked why we think 5G isn’t safe. This short video will give lots of clear, simple bits of information that should raise concerns with everyone, especially those running in the upcoming election.
Is 5G Safe?
2) In case some of us need refreshers about the dangers/problems associated with smeters. This was written in 2018 by someone in New York, and didn’t give much attention to fires. There are many reasons we should continue our battle to have smeters removed and to have our analogs returned. Smeters are a critical entry port for 5G grid data-gathering. This, alone, should make Premier Horgan rethink the Clean Energy Act which mandates that we have these dangerous, invasive devices on our homes.
The Hazards of Digital Utility Meters: Why We Must Take Immediate Action to Protect
the Health, Safety and Privacy of Utility Consumers
“The New York State Public Service Commission (NYSPSC) approved digital utility meters for use in the early 2000s without testing the meters for health and electrical fire safety, or considering how the meters violate utility consumers’ privacy rights. The approval was based on ignorance and misleading information provided by the utility industry and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). This decision is now adversely affecting millions of people.”
3) Wireless emissions from one device can interfere with other devices. Recently, there have been warnings about “smart” phones interfering with medical devices like pacemakers. There are warnings about 5G interfering with navigational devices in airplanes. Now there is a warning about medical devices and car safety equipment being hacked or attacked, with no “work around”. Is convenience worth this?
BlackBerry QNX Cybersecurity Vulnerabilities May Affect Certain Medical Devices
“The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is notifying patients, health care providers, and manufacturers about cybersecurity vulnerabilities with a “real-time operating system (RTOS)” designed by QNX and owned by BlackBerry. These vulnerabilities may introduce risks for certain medical devices. The FDA is not aware of any confirmed adverse events related to these vulnerabilities. Manufacturers are assessing which devices may be affected by the BlackBerry QNX cybersecurity vulnerabilities and are evaluating the risk and developing mitigations, including deploying patches from BlackBerry.”

Cars, Medical Devices With BlackBerry QNX Were Vulnerable To Nasty BadAlloc Bug
“BlackBerry has listed 14 different QNX products as being affected. In some cases multiple versions of the same product are vulnerable, which brings the total disclosed by BlackBerry to 31.
These include QNX RTOS for Medical Devices, the developer platform for the QNX CAR infotainment system and QNX OS for Automotive Safety.”
The BlackBerry product details are quite disturbing. This “vulnerability” could allow a hacker or attacker to stop the device from working or cause it to seriously malfunction.
“A successful attacker could exploit the integer overflow in the calloc() function for denial of service or arbitrary code execution.”
“All workarounds should be considered temporary measures. BlackBerry recommends that customers install the latest update(s) to protect their systems. There are no known workarounds for this vulnerability.”
