- Article in Huffington Post supporting the effort by MP Terence Young to put labels on wireless devices. Some good info, some misleading statements – the major “industry speak” that all supporters of the status quo, such as Perry Kendall use: “RF classification as 2B carcinogen, just like coffee and pickled veggies.” When you see this, you know this is industry talking, demeaning the importance of the 2B carcinogen classification.
- On Sunday, May 31, a $$meter in Collingwood, Ont. exploded. It was not a Sensus, the type that caused problems in Oregon, Ontario, and Saskatchewan. At this point I don’t know what type it was, but I will find out and let you know.
- Several years ago someone sent me a video he had taken (surreptitiously) at an insurance meeting, where agents were being told how their clients might be at risk for having transmitters hidden on and in their buildings. One of our members made the video into 3 youtubes, each around 10 min. long. These show how workers like painters, roofers, even kids working at McDonald’s could be and probably are being exposed to RF from transmitters they can’t see because they are hidden or disguised. These should be provided to every union, building trades, etc. where members could come into close contact with these dangerous things. There could well be people who have already suffered health effects and have no idea about the cause. Please share.
- CBC is carrying info about the RDOS moratorium request re. Fortis. Fortis people need to get to the BCUC with their concerns. BCUC is not prevented by the Clean Energy Act from getting involved as they are re. Hydro. Why isn’t the BCUC looking at the fire issue? It’s mandate, according to the BC Utilities Act, is to protect the citizens of BC. Do it!!
- Bill passed in Ontario to allow Hydro One to be sold off in pieces, and to refuse any oversight, including Freedom of Information requests. Another rogue government.

Some interesting comments for this article. http://www.castanet.net/news/Penticton/141230/Fortis-defends-smart-meters BTW ignore anything Derek Ward says. He supports the industry every chance he gets, and attacks to get attention, not to further the debate.

Subject: Cell Towers
Dear Mayor & Council,
I implore you to find someone on staff to read the letter below. The writer, a retired military officer whose specialties for 22 years were Electronic Warfare (EW) and Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) is spending his retirement days trying to educate those in the position of policy making of the health implications to their citizens of the recondite electromagnetic spectrum which includes radio and microwave frequencies, pulsed non-thermal and non-ionizing radiation. This is wireless technology!
I think it may influence your decision making with regards to siting policies of cell towers and other transmitters. We need to realize that this radiation is cumulative and measurements don’t account for the myriad number of transmitters surrounding us. We need to be cognizant of siting them at safer distances from hospitals, care homes & residential areas.
I truly believe that it is at your level of government that a difference can be made. You have the ability to create a wedge in the system by passing ordinances or by-laws at the local level which declare your citizens have the right to a clean & safe environment. If you agree that this is a right then our laws must uphold it by demanding stricter guidelines for cell tower and transmitter placements.
You may also want to peruse this power point presented by a building biologist to the health advisory committee of a municipality. They are now planning to put a motion forward to council to update their antenna siting policies. http://www.katharinaconsulting.com/cell-towers
Thanks for your attention to this issue.

Subject: World-class scientists condemn Health Canada and Safety Code 6! Why won’t Dr. Perry Kendall do his job and protect us?

World-Class Scientists Condemn Both Health Canada and Safety Code 6 Why Won’t Dr. Perry Kendall Act to Protect British Columbians?
Wake up municipal governments, moms and dads, grandma’s and grandpa’s, and decent, trusting people everywhere! Remember tobacco, asbestos, Thalidomide etc.? Well, now it’s “low-level, pulsed, non-thermal radio frequency (RF) radiation that is harming us, which no one can escape – not even those earnest but misguided people who say wireless is harmless! Microwave frequencies penetrate walls and most building materials with impunity, and frequencies in the 700 MHz band easily penetrate down into underground concrete parking lots and elevator shafts! For clarification: RF or radio frequencies include microwave frequencies.
Health Canada, the BC Government, CWTA, BCUC and BC’s Provincial Health Officer are not telling the truth about the very real dangers of the ‘low-level, pulsed, non-thermal RF radiation’ Smart Meters, baby monitors, Wi-Fi, cell phones, cordless phones, tablet and laptop computers etc. all emit. Not one credible peer-reviewed study exists – done by non-industry scientists – that shows cell phones do not harm people – especially children and pregnant women! Not one scientist – anywhere – knows what constitutes a SAFE level of low-level, pulsed, non-thermal RF radiation for an embryo, a child, a teenager, a pregnant woman, a sick elderly person, etc. to be constantly exposed to on a 24/7/365 basis! Tragically for all British Columbians, our own Provincial Health Officer, Dr. Perry Kendall, has shown for these past 16 years that he is still unable or unwilling to believe this! Surely he can accept the following?
* The German government has recommended that the use of Wi-Fi in the workplace or home should be avoided where possible!
* Los Angeles has reduced student exposure to Wi-Fi radiation to 10,000 times below the US government’s recommended standard (which is virtually the same as Health Canada’s egregiously high Safety Code 6)!
* France has banned Wi-Fi from all kindergarten schools in the country! In other schools, Wi-Fi routers must be turned off when not actually in use!
* Literally hundreds of scientists world-wide condemn Health Canada’s Safety Code 6 and urge Health Canada to start protecting Canadians!
* Dr. Perry Kendall, like Health Canada and the other Regulatory Agencies tasked with protecting the public, refuses to acknowledge that NON-THERMAL radiation can harm people, flora and fauna!
* Dr. Perry Kendall and B.C.’s Minister of Health don’t seem to realize that Safety Code 6 provides no protection whatsoever against NON-THERMAL radiation. It recognizes only THERMAL radiation!
* Over 200 world-class scientists recently issued a Press Release calling on the United Nations and the WHO to stop this insane irradiation of the entire population with excessive amounts (levels) of low-level, pulsed non-thermal RF radiation!
* The Canadian Medical Association Journal, in May 2015, slammed both Health Canada and its globally-vilified Safety Code 6!
* Berkeley, California’s City Council, in May 2015, voted 9-0 approving an ordinance making it the first city in the USA in which merchants must now provide customers buying cell phones with written documentation showing how much radiation specific cell phones emit and the distance users are cautioned to keep cell phones away from any part of their body! San Francisco had attempted to do the same in 2010 but CTIA, the powerful trade and lobbying organization for the cell phone industry, sued San Francisco on grounds that informing citizens of possible health risks from cell phones violates manufacturers’ 1st Amendment Constitutional rights. They claim that disclosing manufacturers’ own safe use precautions (which are currently hidden in the fine print of user manuals) and offering consumers facts regarding possible health risks from their products is illegal. Three years later, in 2013, the City caved in rather than incur further legal costs and scrapped the ordinance.
* In Canada, opposition to Wi-Fi in schools includes, in part:
* English Teachers Federation of Ontario (76,000 members) want radiation from Wi-Fi and cell phones to be recognized as a hazard!
* Canadian Teachers Federation (200,000 members) calls for public education on ways to avoid Wi-Fi exposures and how to avoid using it.
* Ontario’s English Catholic Teachers Association (45,000 members) calls for ban on Wi-Fi in schools.
* B.C’s Confederation of Parent Advisory Councils (BCCPAC) representing over 500,000 parents calls on Board of Education to have one public school at each educational level that is free of Wi-Fi and stop installing Wi-Fi when hard-wired technologies are an option. 
For those unable/unwilling to accept the above, please note that the Soviet/Russian and American militaries, in particular, have known for decades that frequencies within the 900 MHz to 5 GHz band penetrate all organ systems of the body and thus put all human organs at risk. It is known that these frequencies are especially harmful to the human brain, central nervous system and immune system. Yet it is in this very band of frequencies that Industry Canada has seen fit to authorize all of today’s wireless radio products, including baby monitors, Smart Meters etc. to operate! It was and is Industry Canada’s responsibility to know that major militaries of the world have since the 1950s been developing Electronic Warfare weapons that utilize these very same frequencies because of their known potential to confuse, immobilize, disable, harm and even kill people!
Because non-thermal, non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation (EMR) is such an incredibly complex and obscure subject matter, and because RF radiation is invisible and virtually undetectable to all but a miniscule number of people having access to highly-specialized radiation metering equipment, it should be expected that no government knows of the dangers that accompany any wireless radio transmitting system – especially those emitting low-level, pulsed, non-thermal microwave or RF radiation! Which is precisely what all of today’s wireless devices emit! Health authorities, in particular, need to understand that militaries have long considered microwaves to be the ‘perfect weapon’ – because no one can see, smell, taste, hear or touch them – and they leave no trace of evidence! Prof. Olle Johansson of the world-famous Karolinska Institute in Sweden (where Nobel Prizes are awarded) estimates that the amount of man-made EMR now in our environment is at least 10-Billion times more than it was in the 1960s! It has even caused the World Health Organization to coin the term “Electro-smog.” Scientists the world over know there is a direct correlation between the exponential increase in all of today’s major diseases and the corresponding growth in wireless radio devices now flooding our society – all of which, criminally, are permitted to emit their toxic radiation on the most lethal radio frequencies known to man!
Tragically, industry has been – and continues to be – astonishingly successful in influencing, manipulating and controlling technologically ignorant, naive and gullible governments who, one day, will realize that they have allowed themselves to become agents of industry and enemies of the people! Knowledge is power! And, as happened with tobacco, governments and the public will eventually become ‘enlightened,’ and this wireless ‘experiment’ will, mercifully, be terminated – but at what terrible cost to society? Whatever those costs, the real tragedy is that they will be borne by the same hapless, helpless, trusting and defenseless people who were the victims of their own government’s ignorance and malfeasance! Sooner rather than later, this insane crime against humanity must stop! Governments must accept that wireless radio devices that have not been independently tested for safety belong only in the realm of the militaries of the world, while allowing medical health researchers to continue their pure research – provided it is solely for the betterment of man. Wherever and whenever practicable, only wired technologies should be permitted in communities of any size in which people live, work, play, are educated and cared for. I am available to answer questions and will share my own 500-plus Power Point slide presentation, free of charge, to anyone wanting it. The evidence is there for all to see; one has only to look!
