1) In the open docket on the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) website, due to the action by Americans For Responsible Technology and others, there are many Canadian submissions and Canadian content. Here are three of the recent submissions:

This submission highlights that “[s]olutions abound for transitioning to safe, hard-wired fiber optics to and through the premises.” And it features both of these:
– the Building & Environment journal article co-authored by several of our authoritative Canadian technology, science, environment, and medical expert. If you haven’t read or downloaded this journal article yet, you can read the full text here or download it as a pdf. https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0360132319305347

2) One of our members noticed that ISED has changed the wording in its News Release template that announces each funded upcoming network expansion/upgrade in specific community/municipal regions in Canada. I suppose ISED has chosen to use the word “benefit” in order to be most warmly welcomed and celebrated? I haven’t read all of those recent announcements, but I think it seems like they’ve also stopped mentioning whether or not the installation includes wireless; I think the word “fibre” is mentioned more often but not always specifying fibre-to-the-home. Please keep in mind that fibre optic cable is great when it will be instead of wireless; fibre optic cable is also the feed for cell tower and many other wireless emissions. Here’s one recent example — notice where I’ve bolded the text, that’s the new wording:
“The COVID-19 pandemic has transformed how we live, work, learn and do business, and now more than ever, Canadians across the country need reliable high-speed Internet to access services, supports and opportunities. Through the Universal Broadbank Fund’s (UBF) Rapid Response Stream, the Government of Canada is taking immediate action to get people living in rural and remote communities connected to high-speed Internet.
Today, Adam van Koeverden, Member of Parliament for Milton, Ontario, on behalf of the Honourable Gudie Hutchings, Minister of Rural Economic Development, announced $123,400 in funding for two projects that will bring high-speed Internet to 310 households in rural areas near Flamborough and Limehouse, Ontario. Funding will be allocated to Bell Canada as follows:
$39,400 for a project benefiting the community of Flamborough
$84,000 for a project benefiting the community of Limehouse
Today’s announcement builds on the Government of Canada’s progress toward making sure that 98% of Canadians have access to high-speed Internet by 2026. As we work to rebuild from the pandemic, the Government of Canada will continue to make investments in infrastructure to build strong communities and a more competitive and resilient Canada for everyone.”

EMF Points of Confusion vs. Fact
“Many are surprised to learn the electromagnetic fields (EMFs) emitted by wireless technology are biologically hazardous, and one often gets push-back when they open the conversation. This fact sheet provides information to help sort fact from misinformation and identifies solutions for safer technology use. For those reading this in print format, please see:
