- Report of a lithium battery exploding in a dumb water meter. I don’t know where this happened. Lithium batteries can explode when overheated, and are in ITRON meters that are on homes across BC. One of the stupid, dangerous design flaws.
- In Taiwan it is illegal to allow children under 2 to play with a wireless gadget. A pretty low bar but one that beats Canada.
- France has banned wifi in school for younger children and limited exposure for others.
In primary schools, which also welcome older pupils and where computers are used in lessons, Wifi points in classrooms must be disabled when not in use, national frequencies regulator, L’Agence Nationale des Fréquences (ANFR) has said. – See more at: http://www.connexionfrance.com/france-wifi-schools-ban-children-six-nurseries-daycare-kindergartens-homes-electromagnetic-waves-16637-view-article.html#sthash.tpAVjG2U.dpuf
- Health Canada refused to establish a way track people who were suffering health effects from exposure to RF or EMR, which was recommended in 2010 by the Parliamentary Committee to which Health Canada reports. C4ST has started a petition to have this process in place. Please consider printing the petition, signing and sharing with friends and family.
Join the Federal Petition asking Health Canada to ensure that it has a process in place to receive and respond to reports of adverse reactions to electromagnetic radiation emitting devices.
- An online symposium with several great speakers on sensitivity is being offer in March. Registration is free.
- In Maryland bills are being presented to allow permanent opt out with no fees. People are becoming more aware of the problems of the smeter and demand not to be extorted.
- Cybersecurity. Hydro tells us their encryption will protect our data. Is their system better than the banks’??
Please consider asking your MP to support Mr. Young’s bill C-648.
Dear Mr. Garrison,
I have received no response to my email of January 19, and in checking the list of MPs who have agreed to support this bill, I see that as of today your name is not listed at http://c4st.org/PMB May I ask why it isn’t?
This is a non-partisan issue, with support from every party, including the NDP. If you feel you need more information before taking this important step, please let me know. I can provide you with 1000s of reports from independent world renowned scientists and letters from researchers who have devoted their lives to this area. No one can tell you that RF radiation from wireless devices is safe.
Shouldn’t the public have a right to know that a device they are using 24/7, wearing, and allowing their children to play with has the potential to harm them? That is all this bill is proposing.
I look forward to receiving a response.
Dear Mr. Garrison,
I am sure you are aware of the bill that Mr. Young presented to Parliament last month which asks for a label to be put on all cell phones with the warning that is in the manual that accompanies the phone. Here is a video of the press conference held today. http://winnipeg.ctvnews.ca/video?playlistId=1.2195081.
I am asking you to join with your caucus members, Libby Davies and Djaouida Sellah, who are supporting this initiative.
For the last 10 years I have been devoting my life to educating people about the scientific evidence that confirms that prolonged exposure to wireless radiation can cause biological effects, many of which are irreversible. Children are especially vulnerable.
Because industry is so powerful, contributes so much money to the government coffers, the public has been keep uninformed about the dangers their gadgets pose. Few read the manual than come with them and fewer read any scientific reports. Well-meaning parents give children cell phones as toys, even to babies to entertain themselves. They deserve to know that their children may suffer greatly as a consequence.
Mr. Garrison, for the sake of the British Columbians you represent, I ask you to speak in support of this important bill and to encourage the other NDP MPs to do the same. It’s time the public was allowed to know the truth about the toys they are using and giving to their families.

Dear Ms. X
Thank you for your email regarding Bill C-648, Warning Labels Radio Apparatus Act. I want to assure you that I am working with Terence Young, who brought forward this bill. I completely support it.
The bill would require cellphone manufacturers to place warnings on the packaging of their products about the potential health risks from radio frequency radiation. The World Health Organization lists electromagnetic frequencies as a possible carcinogen. Wireless technology poses a potential risk to health and the environment, and further independent research is needed. Canada should adopt stronger controls on wireless technologies, like those in place in Europe.
I respect Terence Young greatly for his advocacy surrounding health issues. He was the driving force behind Bill C-17, Vanessa’s Law, which strengthened oversight of medication and received unanimous support in the House of Commons.
I am proud to support Bill C-648, which will empower consumers to make informed decisions about their wireless devices and their health.
Thank you again for writing.
