The presentation in English on March 28, 2023 by Dr. Marc Arazi and Sharon Noble, our Canadian board member, of the Phonegate health and industry scandal and its implications in Canada received a lot of attention from the participants in this videoconference. Thanks to Canadians for Safe Technology (C4ST) for the invitation!
Dr. Marc Arazi gave update on Phonegate Scandal in France:
The action had been initiated in September 2019 by Attorney Charles O Brien, following the revelations in August 2019 of American journalist (and 2008 Pulitzer Prize winner) Sam Roe in the Chicago Tribune.
Just recently (end of August 2022), in the U.S. Phonegate case, a ruling did not hold the giant Apple accountable for the overexposure of users of its iPhones.
Phonegate could cost Apple and Samsung dearly
The Canadian decision also authorizes a claim for damages against Apple Canada, Apple Inc., Samsung Electronics Canada and Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. As a result, the seven plaintiffs will have the status of representatives of the class defined by the following wording:
« Any physical person residing or domiciled in Quebec, who has,since September 11, 2016, purchased or leased and used an Apple or Samsung cellphone. »
It is therefore nearly 8.5 million people who are concerned, knowing that according to a recent study, 81% of Quebec adults have a smartphone – iPhones and Android smartphones share the Quebec market. Now, millions of consumers are potentially and directly concerned by this judgment and by obtaining damages.
Questions that need answering
Judge Immer identified several primary issues of fact and law that will need to be addressed collectively: ….
Our new revelations show that 9 out of 10 cell phones in Canada are dangerous for user’s health. And Canadian authorities are doing everything they can to hide it for as long as possible…Read and share our new press release,
It took two years before Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED) sent our local contact, Sharon Noble, the list of Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) levels of unsafe cell phones tested between 2016 and 2021 in Canada.
This is a new victory for Phonegate Alert, our international NGO, as well as for Dr. Marc Arazi who revealed the scandal in 2016. Our deepest thanks go to Sharon Noble, whose tenacity finally made it possible to communicate this important data.
Transmission of the list of 90 smartphones controlled by the Canadian authorities
Sharon’swork was made possible through the « Access to Information Act (The Act) ». In an email dated March 25, 2022, the ISED finally sent her a list of ninety tested smartphones. This number of 90 represents an annual average of about 20 tests – by comparison, France tests an average of 70 per year (i.e., barely 15% of the cell phones put on the French market!).
A large part of the cell phones tested in Canada came from manufacturers, the others were taken from the shelves of stores. Although many of the best-known brands were tested, only two smartphones from Apple were included, which, given the brand’s leading position in the North American market, seems to us to be insufficient.
Expected since 2016, the Mobi-kids study has just been published – in all discretion – on December 30, 2021, in the scientific journal Environment International. We reveal in exclusivity the serious conflicts of interest among the experts and the major role of the operator Orange in distorting the science.
SUBJECT: New Video Release – Clegg Challenges Rogers on Safety of Cell Towers and 5G
Thank you for signing and sharing the Suspend 5G Canada Appeal for safe, fast, resilient Internet using fibre and wired connections instead of wireless 5G whenever possible. We now have over 20,000 signatures.
We plan to send you soon a more detailed update about what we have been doing in the last 9 months and the other projects we are working on. But right now we have a new 6-minute video we think you will enjoy watching and sharing. It was prepared under the C4ST umbrella, but the whole Appeal team thinks it is worth your attention right away.
On March 19, 2021, Dean Prevost, President of Connected Homes and Rogers for Business, Rogers Communications, stated that radiation from 5G systems, cell towers and antennas is safe.
Not once, but FOUR times.
In a short video, Frank Clegg, Former President of Microsoft Canada, challenges Mr. Prevost to show us the proof—actual scientific evidence in the peer-reviewed literature—that the radiation emitted by 5G and cell tower antennas is safe. In the news release announcing the video, Frank also asks for Rogers to return the $150m subsidy of taxpayer money if the evidence is not provided.
Prevost was addressing a virtual media conference on March 19, announcing that Rogers is the successful winning bidder in the Eastern Ontario Regional Network project. The plan calls for antennas to be added to the current 300 towers and installations of 350 new cell towers. Mr. Prevost also discussed “the hundreds and hundreds of thousands of more Canadians” who can be impacted if this type of project is expanded to other parts of Canada.
