School Board Violates Conflict of Interest Guidelines in Wi Fi Hearings
By appointing a WiFi industry insider to chair their Wi Fi hearings the process was a sham. Staff and trustees arranged to bury evidence that WiFi radiation is dangerous. They collaborated to ram through their corporate backed agenda to force students and staff to be exposed to a Class 2 carcinogen. Those involved in the scam and the cover-up must be fired and forced to resign.
In 2010, parents and teachers living in Victoria British Columbia raised concerns about the planned installation of wireless internet technology in their schools. In response the Board of Education created a WiFi Committee and scheduled hearings with submissions from the public. In late 2010, George Ambeault, long-time secretary/ treasurer of SD 61 was named as the chairman of the WiFi hearings committee by the school board.

At the same time, this auction could represent a significant financial windfall for the federal government, which is desperately trying to slay the deficit.

The 700 MHz frequency is highly prized by carriers because of its ability to travel long distances and penetrate buildings (and more people).
Findings are 'first evidence of changes in thyroid cells in response to electromagnetic radiation' says researcher, 'but drawing sweeping conclusions ... is still far off.'
1. Regarding the protection of the general public from potential effects of EMF, the EU Treaties give the primary responsibility to the Member States and do not confer the Commission competence to legislate. The Council Recommendation on EMF exposure limits (1999/519/EC) was adopted to propose a common protective framework to guide the action of Member States in the hope to bring coherence among the various national approaches. Following the subsidiarity principle (apart from workers' protection), the role of the EU institutions is limited to provision of independent scientific advice (SCENIHR's work) and to coordination and harmonization of the Member States policies as well as promotion of the best practices.
2. Regarding the risk communication approaches presented at the Workshop, it is apparent that there is a need for interaction between different jurisdictions. This should increase the clarity and the effectiveness of the message for the general public. Therefore, the participants of the Workshop expressed their interest in continuing the Dialogue in its current configuration (stakeholders and member states representatives) on the same, risk-communication theme.
