1) Information about a current court case in Belgium and, if won, could set a major precedent for us and others around the world. Our friend in Quebec, Jean Hudon, has posted this on his excellent facebook page, and at the bottom has listed many other court cases from around the world.
“I want to informing (sic) you all about our Belgian court cases and their European and world-wide relevance.
(click on photos to enlarge)
Basing ourselves primarily on the fundamental rights of the European Union and the European Convention on Human Rights —a unique approach— we recently submitted our evidence of close to 8000 pages to the Belgian courts.
We not only invoke EU fundamental rights but we ask the national judge to ask the European Court of Justice 3 prejudicial questions.
You can read more here: https://savebelgium.be/radiation-court-case-against-belgium-and-the-eu-state-of-play/
Because of the pronounced European dimension in our cases, we believe that what we are doing is of direct relevance to scientists and anti-radiation groups everywhere in Europe, and beyond.
Feel free to contact me if you would like to know more.

RADIATION COURT CASE AGAINST BELGIUM AND THE EU
2) ART Honors Dr. Joel Moskowitz with Leadership Award for Outstanding Contributions to Public Health
“Americans For Responsible Technology is pleased to recognize Dr. Joel Moskowitz as the recipient of the organization’s Leadership Award for his outstanding service and contributions to public health.
In making the announcement, ART National Director Doug Wood cited Dr. Moskowitz’s dedication to ensuring that the supporters of safe technology were armed with the best science available. “Joel has been unparalleled in his work keeping us informed about the latest research from the scientific community,” said Wood. “He has helped us immensely in our efforts to bring awareness to the issue of RF radiation and its impact on human health.””

Hello Mr. Lawrence,
Re: Cell Tower Proposal, at 6246 Gordon Road, off Valentine Road, East Sooke
Thank you for providing us with this information.
May I ask, who in East Sooke will benefit from this Global Network Transport’s industrial communication tower, when their business is transportation?
If East Sooke is reduced to serve international transport as a communication hub, in what way will residents benefit?
Is the CRD willing to sacrifice people’s health for a few measly dollars, as ALL levels of microwave radiation pollution, results in biological effects?
Will this blight in the landscape be conducive to the fragile biodiversity of insects, pollinators, birds and wildlife in East Sooke?
I communicate with EMF scientists around the world, including a Canadian Government Entomologist, who is well informed of the devastating biological effects E-Smog pollution has on insects.
I am quite certain that I could arrange a Zoom meeting between CRD decision makers, and with scientists, epidemiologists, including the before mentioned Entomologist, and other EMF experts. I might also be able to have former Microsoft President Canada, Frank Clegg, join this event as well.
Before any decision is reached at the CRD, it is vital that whoever is involved in this decision making process is fully informed of the inherent risk to biodiversity and humanity. Without this prior knowledge, there can be no informed consent.
I hope the CRD is aware that Core One is a lobby firm, who is not independent, as their income depends on the success of selling communication technology to uninformed councils and communities.
When Core One hosts an information event, they will not reveal to the concerned public that we are dealing with microwave transmitters emitting harmful, unnatural pulsed microwave radiation, a.k.a. E-Smog pollution.
They will certainly omit informing the public, and yourself, of the recent US Government funded, 10 year NTP cell phone study, and the 10 year Ramazzini Studies on cell tower radiation, which created a shock wave among scientists, which include members of IARC/WHO, who are calling for an immediate reclassification from the current 2B cancer causing classification to a known 1A, human cancer causing agent.
Anthony B. Miller MD, a longtime advisor to the World Health Organization and senior advisor to Environmental Health Trust (EHT), has issued a statement that the recently released findings from the $25 million NIH/NIEHS National Toxicology Program (NTP) cell phone radiofrequency radiation carcinogenicity studies combined with human epidemiology studies “conclusively confirms that radiofrequency radiation is a category 1 human carcinogen.”
The telecom industry is following in the footsteps of Big Tobacco who, for decades, ruthlessly suppressed and attacked all science, which did not speak in their favour.
For you, and members of the CRD, to become acquainted with the serious radiation health issues, far below allowable standards, including Canada’s scientifically obsolete “Safety Code 6” (based on thermal heating only) , please pass this Compilation of Research Studies on Cell Tower Radiation and Health on to all members of the CRD, involved in the decision making process.

Industry attempts to steer attention away from biological radiation effects, but in my work as a certified EMF Consultant, I am contacted by people from all walks of life, of all ages, who are unwell, suffering from a variety of health issues to which the medical community has no answers as they are not trained in this field.
I have a friend who fled to East Sooke and also know other sensitive people who moved to remote regions, as their health was seriously impacted by the ever expanding E-Smog pollution we are inundated with, 24/7. This is also reported by Dr. Reena Bray, director at the Women’ s College Hospital in Toronto.
The recent 2021 EMF – Medical Conference underlines the urgency of medical education in this field.
This conference was convened online in January 2021 and was attended by over 800 people from 30+ nations. The information and resources provided at this conference is still very relevant today. Presentations made by internationally recognized scientists who have published in the field of bioelectromagnetics; by knowledgeable health practitioners who treat people for EMF associated illness and injuries; and, by healthy building engineers who test EMF exposures and mitigate hazards provide a high quality education and training experience.
Please Watch this short EMF Medical Conference and Pre-Conference Video Recordings 2021:
Prevention, Diagnosis and Treatment of EMF Associated Illness Online | Vimeo On Demand on Vimeo
In this short video, you can see for yourself that cell/communication towers are deemed a bio-hazard by informed doctors and scientists.
You might not be aware that, despite assurances, the BC Government has no experts in this field, NONE!
Please consider the long term health implications of yet another microwave radiation emitting tower, impacting our already E-Smog polluted environment.

Hi Marcus ,
The company that would own the infrastructure is 1291956 BC Ltd. The drawings submitted as part of the application indicate that the name of the company is Global Network Transport. The agent is Core One Consulting.
The proponent has disclosed that the purpose of the tower is for research and testing data transmission using “mature technologies”.
I have attached an elevation drawing of the tower that shows one micro-wave antenna and two flat antennas: one at the mid-point and one at the top. This arrangement may prevent co-locating on a commercial carrier’s tower, although I’m not an expert so this is entirely speculative. The decision to require co-location would be made by Industry Canada.
From the information provided to Regional Parks in response to their questions I can tell you that the existing Rogers tower is 36 m tall, the surrounding tree canopy is 38 m tall and the proposed tower is 45 m tall.
The closest dwelling is on the same property and appears to be around 360 m from the tower. The next closet is on Copper Mine Road, approximately 390 m away.
The health and safety aspects of radio emissions are the jurisdiction of Health Canada. The role of CRD staff in this process is to advise neighbouring residents of the proposal, to receive comments from the public and forward them the proponent for a response, and to present this information to the JdF Land Use Committee for a recommendation as to whether a letter of concurrence should be sent to Industry Canada and the proponent. The Land Use Committee will not be considering this item until sometime after the local election, likely in the New Year.
If you have any questions that you would like us to forward to the proponent, please let us know.
