1)   Pender Islanders are just learning that a cell tower is being planned for their area. This from someone who wants to organize resistance. Please share with anyone you know on Pender.

“The MacKinnon Road residents just received notice from Freedom Mobile that a 140 ft cell phone tower with an initial four sector anntennae is planned for installation at 1348 MacKinnon Road. The purpose of the tower is not for the benefit of Pender Island, but for Greater Victoria, Southern Gulf Islands, and BC Ferries customers en route.

The Islands Trust has no policy regarding cell phone towers and defers to the provincial government ministry. Parks Canada has banned new cell phone towers so now the cell phone companies are looking to private property owners to lease their land.

We are resident at 1358 MacKinnon and the tower would be right above us, adjacent to other residences, and affect the whole of this part of the island. 

This affects all of Pender Island now and in the future and we need to mount an aggressive opposition.”

I have advised the person that there is no provincial ministry that has authority over cell towers, and if Islands Trust is governed by the government, there must be an effort to ensure that the MLA for the area realizes that there is no insurance to protect the owner from lawsuits. It is vital that people considering leasing to telecoms realize that the dangers are real, and there will be lawsuits.




What the Telecom Industry Doesn’t Tell You…But Does Tell Its Investors – Environmental Health Trust has assembled a series of slides by Telecom Companies that warn investors of the potential for economic loss due to litigation about health effects from wireless.  For eg. VERIZON states:  “Our wireless business also faces personal injury and consumer class action lawsuits related to alleged health effects of wireless phones or radio frequency transmitters, and class action lawsuits that challenge marketing practices and disclosures relating to alleged adverse health effects of handheld wireless phones.  We may incur significant expenses in defending these lawsuits.  In addition, we may be required to pay significant awards or settlements.”


2)   A report, that has been translated by a member, regarding effects of exposure to RF on blood.  This could happen with exposure to RF from cell phones, smeters, Wi-Fi in schools or on ferries.

Blood clumping, Money-roll effect

There are visual and reproducible experiments, that show the effect of mobile-telephone calls.  One example is the money-roll formation, illustrated proof by students.

Blood was taken from several persons between 17 and 20, who were not allowed to use their cell phone for 24 hours.  Immediately after, the young researchers let their test subject use a mobile telephone (Siemens ME 35), to take blood from the earlobe and finger.  Ten minutes later, the procedure was repeated.

The result of this field study was explosive:  After every phone call, a definite cluster formation from the ear, as well as the finger, and even in photographs, that were taken ten minutes later, showed blood clusters clearly.

Through clumping, the blood becomes thick and can more easily plug up capillaries and narrow passages.  Further, through this surface reduction of the red blood cells, less oxygen is transported.

This, for example, can lead to heart/circulatory problems (Hutter et.al. 2002), tiredness, concentration difficulties, etc.

Currently, and for some time, educational materials were created and developed by the Department of Physics of The College of Education Heidelberg.

When you click on:  der Pädagogischen Hochschule Heidelberg. you find the educational materials.

This material can even be ordered!

From the small text:

Since the persons 2 meters away from test subject are also affected, this would exclude any thermal effects.

Possible consequences: Strokes because of reduced viscosity of the blood

This confirms/replicates Dr. Magda Havas’s results that she found several years ago when studying her own blood before and after exposure to RF.


3)   Scientists have found a way to photograph people through walls using Wi-Fi

“But not all of that microwave radiation makes it to (or from) our phones, tablets, and laptops. Routers scatter and bounce their signal off objects, illuminating our homes and offices like invisible light bulbs.

Now, German scientists have found a way to exploit this property to take holograms, or 3D photographs, of objects inside a room — from outside it.”


4)   A letter by Dr. Olle Johansson, in Vitality Magazine, warning about some of the effects of wireless devices.


5)   It seems that a bill to end landlines got pushed through in Illinois, tagged on to another bill. AARP and other organizations are speaking out about the hardships that many will suffer if reliable landline phones are no longer available.  Shaw, and perhaps Telus, already are eliminating standard landlines in BC. Were we told?

“AT&T’s alternative, computer-based VoIP, does not provide the same level of reliability. U-verse is NOT a viable alternative.

Professionals and businesses that require secure phone service count on landlines. Law firms, real estate offices, medical facilities, government offices, and financial institutions use landlines because they are cyber secure and not connected to the Internet. During a power outage, these businesses have to continue providing consumers with vital services. For cyber secure, uninterrupted phone service, landlines are the only viable option.

Warnings from AARP:

  • Forcing people onto alternatives, such as wireless or computer-based phone service, could subject them to higher bills, lack of service in extended power outages, spotty reception and dropped calls.
  • Landline telephone service allows residents to have reliable access to emergency services; it helps low-income families to connect with job opportunities; it helps small businesses to stay in business and connect with new opportunities and customers; and it allows older residents and residents in rural areas to stay connected to family, friends, and neighbors, as well as vital services. Furthermore, [landline telephone service] saves callers millions of dollars by having access to affordable calling plans.”



Subject: Health Damage Caused by Travel on BC Ferries

Dear Ms. Hartnell:

Please be advised that I am a person who is medically diagnosed with electrohypersensitivity due to over exposure from years of using microwave radiation emitting devices in the course of my employment.

Due to this condition, I must take action to avoid further exposure which can cause some life threatening heart irregularities. I have thrice been taken to emergency with heart attack symptoms directly attributable to Wi-Fi router exposure. The heart’s own “electrical” function being disrupted by exterior pulsed microwave radiofrequency radiation interference.

I am sorry to report that travel upon BC Ferries since Wi-Fi routers have been placed throughout has been a very risky and upsetting experience, given the lack of any safe zone for me to retreat into whereby I can be assured safe passage. I have spent various ferry rides in demeaning and uncomfortable circumstances, such as perched on a window ledge in a corridor which has the least exposure, sitting on my suitcase in another corner of a corridor, or even, when inquiring as to a possible “safe zone” being directed to spend the trip inside the dog exercise room. A stinky, and disgusting experience for a passenger paying full fare, as you can well imagine.

A growing number of your passengers are similarly afflicted with electrohypersensitivity, and would appreciate a safer zone (note I did not say safe), in which to spend the travel time. What numbers or types of requests would prompt BC Ferries to take this situation seriously and designate a small area as a Cell Quiet Zone where Wi-Fi routers do not penetrate easily and cell phone off sign as seen at gas stations are clearly displayed? There are many examples of this type of accommodation for different reasons, and as the public ages and more sensitive electronic medical devices are implanted, such as deep brain implants or heart stabilization devices, the numbers of people who would like this care and consideration are increasing not only for reasons of electrohypersensitivity.

I have no hesitation in stating that my health has indeed been damaged during travel upon your Wi-Fi equipped vessels, and I may experience ill health effects for two or three days after dis-embarking due to the unavoidable close encounters with Wi-Fi base emitters as I roam the ship looking for a safer corner to ride out the journey.

This is a serious issue affecting the care and well being of passengers. I would like to know what it would take for BC Ferries to understand their responsibility to provide consideration to passengers by way of offering a quiet zone area as described above. I feel sure that if you, or others in the BC Ferry Corporation administration, could experience the extreme discomfort of a person with this health condition in desperation as they seek safe/safer passage on your vessels, the solution would present itself with alacrity.

I do look forward to a meaningful reply, hoping that conscious empathy is considered valuable within your organization when dealing with significant, and possibly extremely serious, passenger concerns.

Una St.Clair
