1) Under legal terminology, an attached enclosed garage, storage area, utility room, etc. is part of the premises of the home. One of our members is doing some research on legal options and has asked me to find out how many people might have smeters either inside their homes or the attached areas considered as premises.
If you do, did BC Hydro threaten you with loss of power or actually cut your power in order to gain access ?
Were you aware of the info in #6 at: http://wpmedia.vancouversun.com/2012/03/quickfacts-on-smartmeters_feb2012.pdf ?
Please email me at email@example.com with “premises” on the subject line if your smeter is inside your premises, and please answer the questions I’ve asked above.
2) As more wireless devices in our homes are connected to the internet, especially with IoT “advances”, our privacy becomes more and more vulnerable to hackers. And this will increase when BC Hydro and FortisBC activate the ZigBee chips in the smeters and begin to download info from our “smart” appliances and devices. Unfortunately, we must learn to take precautions now.

3) A member discovered that an app can be downloaded to an iPhone making it into an RF meter.
He downloaded it to his phone but found that its readings were 10 times higher than his RF meter’s, even when the phone was in airplane mode. Maybe this is good – some users might become concerned enough to take some precautionary measures. Odd, though, to have an RF emitter/gadget used as a detector of RF.
4) From another member for those who are sensitive. This could also be a time of interference with wireless devices and the electrical grid.

Subject: Marketplace reveals Health Canada is Injuring Canadians’ Health & Endangering the Lives of Children
I was SHOCKED at the statement by Health Canada that “EVEN IF A SMALL CHLD WERE EXPOSED TO A CELL PHONE…24 HOURS A DAY, 365 DAYS A YEAR…THERE WOULD BE NO ADVERSE HEALTH EFFECT.’
There is no scientific evidence to substantiate that statement. Indeed there is increasing scientific evidence it is blatantly false.
Is this the same government that promised evidence-based policies?
Where, Ms. Philpott, is your evidence?
If you have no evidence and you do not, because there is no evidence that would justify that statement, I respectfully request that you order Health Canada to retract their statement and issue a correction. I further request that the Health Canada statement, AS A MINIMUM, urge cell phone users to review the data on how cell phones should be used and carried.
Please respond. I do not want a form letter. I want to know someone in your office actually is reading taxpayers’ communications to your office.

Subject: Health Canada, out of touch with science
Dear Hon. Health Minister Philpott,
The recent CBC – Marketplace program on cellphones, informed the viewers of your unfortunate decision not to speak to Ms. Mesley, the investigative reporter of this program. This left a rather poor impression on the Liberal government, as your party campaigned on “science-based decision making”.
The most disturbing information of this program was Health Canada’s outrageous, unscientific claim: “Even if a small child were exposed to a cell phone . . . 24 hours a day, 365 days a year . . . there would be no adverse Health effect.“
I have written to you before regarding this outlandish safety claim that, to this day, is present on Health Canada’s website. Unfortunately, your staff decided to pass my previous email to Health Canada, and I am quite certain that you did not have a chance to glance at the medical science information I provided.
Instead, I received the usual form letter from Health Canada, stunningly denouncing peer reviewed research by hundreds of respected scientists and specialists of electromagnetic, ‘non-ionizing’ radiation research, and all fields of medicine!
Such unprecedented, grotesque level of arrogance, and unbridled hubris, has no place in a caring and educated modern society!
Every parent wishes the best health information for their children, but what value does it hold when the information they receive from Health Canada is outdated, and not based on current scientific literature?
Ms. Philpott, are you aware of the warning posters the Austrian Medical Association has prominently displayed in medical clinics, regarding cell phones and wireless devices?
Medical Rules For Cell Phone use:
No. 1 – Use a cell phone as little and as short as possible, children and teenagers under the age of 16 should not use a cell phone at all!
Why does Health Canada irresponsibly encourage 24/7 microwave radiation exposure for children, while other countries around the world warn of negative biological consequences?
“A disservice has been done in inaccurately depicting the body of science, which actually indicates that there are biological effects from the radiation emitted by wireless devices, including damage to DNA, and evidence for increased risk of cancer and other substantial health consequences…The public the world over has been misled by this reporting.”
– Dr. Ronald B. Herberman, – Founding Director of the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute, Vice Chancellor of Cancer Research at University of Pittsburgh and the first head of an NCI funded cancer center to speak out on the risks from cell phones.
“Because the World Health Organization considers wireless radiation a possible human carcinogen, wireless radiation does not belong in schools with young children”
– Anthony B. Miller MD PHD – expert advisor to the WHO, Professor Emeritus University of Toronto – in the C4ST Women’s College Hospital Symposium 9/12/14.
“As a research scientist and physician who studies how microwave radiation affects the outcomes of pregnancy, I am deeply concerned about growing exposures to cell phone and other wireless radiation.”
– Prof.Hugh Taylor, MD, PhD, – Chief of Obstetrics/Gynecology – at Yale University Medical School, 2013.
“Radiation at extremely low levels (0.0001, the level, much lower than emitted by the average digital cellular telephone) caused heart attacks and the deaths of some chicken embryos…independent, third-party peer reviewed studies need to be conducted in the U.S. to begin examining the effects from radiation on migratory birds and other trust species.”
– Willie Taylor – US Department of the Interior – in his February 2014 letter to Mr. Eli Veenendaal of the National Telecommunications and Information Administration, U.S. Dept. of Commerce.
“Scientific data on the biological effects of radiofrequency (RF) indicate the need to pursue a precautionary approach to protect the exposed population. It is clear that RF radiation can cause single and double strand DNA breaks at exposure levels that are currently considered safe under FCC guidelines.”
– Dr. Martin Blank – of Columbia University in his letter to the LAUSD.
“Where there are threats of serious or irreversible damage, lack of full scientific certainty shall not be used as a reason for postponing cost-effective measures to prevent environmental degradation.”
– The United Nation’s Rio Declaration on the Environment and Development, 1992 –
Canada is a signee of this document.
“The IARC 2B classification implies an assurance of safety that cannot be offered—a particular concern, given the prospect that most of the world’s population will have lifelong exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields.”
– Dr. Jonathan Samet – physician and epidemiologist, Chair of the World Health Organization’s EMF Working Group who made the Class 2 B classification, in a 2014 Commentary.
“All reasonable measures to be taken to reduce exposures to electromagnetic fields, especially radiofrequencies from mobile phones and particularly the exposures to children and young adults. Current exposure limits to be reconsidered.”
– European Environment Agency -
Here you will find these quotes, plus so much more information on this subject:
Health Canada is clearly is not acting in the interest of Canadians! Therefore, as grandparents, we are deeply concerned about the future health of our two little grandchildren, as their environment has become saturated with unnatural, man-made electrosmog pollution, with no end in sight!
Health Canada has become a liability for all Canadians, as staff refuses to accept the mountains of scientific evidence of harm that was made available to them from many associations and groups, including myself.
Health Canada refuses to adopt the ‘Precautionary Principle‘ of science; instead, they irresponsibly encourage the use of wireless devices for children on their website!
This deliberate negligence of duty leaves the distinct impression that they have become a lobby group for the wireless industry! Either they lack the medical credentials, or they simply succumbed to what is now termed as: ‘wireless dementia‘!
Ms. Philpott, we and thousands of others urge you to bring this travesty by Health Canada to light!
Please think of the children and their future, and let current ‘independent‘ science be your guide.

P.S. Your response would be appreciated, but please be so kind and spare us the indignity of Health Canada’s rhetoric.

Subject: Irresponsible Cell Phone Safety Statement
Hon. Minister Philpott,
I am contacting you after viewing the excellent CBC Marketplace segment “The Secret Inside Your Phone” by Wendy Mesley.
This is a subject that I have been following for many years now, unfortunately, due to my son’s symptoms resulting from electro-hypersensitivity. He is now almost 24, and about the only person in that age group that I know who does not (cannot) use a cell phone. He tries to maintain and balance a normal life and social connections, while at the same time attempting to surreptitiously avoid all sources of RF radiation from cell phones, cordless phones, wifi routers, cell transmitters, etc. As you can imagine, this is very challenging in our current wireless-everything environment, but he’s learned to adapt the best he can.
Aside from finding the Oncologist in the story very irresponsible with his statements, I was most deeply dismayed to see the one Health Canada slide that said: EVEN IF A SMALL CHILD WERE EXPOSED TO A CELL PHONE… “24 HOURS A DAY, 365 DAYS A YEAR … THERE WOULD BE NO ADVERSE HEALTH EFFECTS.”
Given the vast amount of studies and data that I’ve seen firsthand that contradict this, I feel this misleading statement borders on being criminal.
There is more than enough evidence to dispute this ridiculous statement, and I respectfully request that Health Canada retract this outrageous and irresponsible claim immediately.
