The Canadian initiative to stop Wireless Electrical and Electromagnetic Pollution15 February 2014
Electropollution and the Decline in Health of a Nation
Every moment of every day, invisible fields of electrons are striking our bodies like tiny darts, triggering dozens of bio-chemical reactions, which undermine our health and stealthily lay the groundwork for disease.
"[T]here is no rational basis for the implementation of AMI."
(AMI = Advanced Metering Infrastructure = 'smart' meters/infrastructure)
"[T]here is no cost justification that can support the implementation of AMI."
"[Smart m]eters do not reduce the number of outages..."
"[Smart m]etering systems are not necessary to integrate distributed resources..." (wind & solar)
"AMI introduces a brand new portal into [companies'] information systems, significantly increasing the cyber-security risk."
"[M]andated implementation of AMI is not a prerogative within the [Massachusetts Dept. of Public Utilities'] discretion."

Mr. Terence Young (Oakville, CPC): Mr. Speaker, last week our government announced important improvements to the process for improving cellular tower locations. We have given Canadians a far greater say into where cellular towers may be built in their communities.
In Oakville, Bell Canada ignored local residents, placing cellular antennae in residential areas, in one case 13 metres from a house, without giving any notice to the local residents, ignoring homeowners many of whom are its own customers. Our policy would force all cellular companies to conduct a robust process to inform and consult municipalities and local residents where cellular towers are proposed, for the first time including towers under 15 metres.
I am hoping that Bell Canada CEO, George Cope, and his board of directors will now realize that Canadians have a right to participate in decisions affecting their families and their homes, communities and health, and move their invasive antennae in Oakville now.

Another False Report - "New" MTHR report claims no health effects from cell phones, etc.
Fairfax Mayor David Weinsoff said a couple of years ago when the Fairfax Town Council conducted public hearings on SmartMeters the community's opposition was overwhelming.
"When a community speaks so loudly and so wisely, really there was no question that the council should continue to impose this moratorium," Weinsoff said.

Biologic Effects & Health Hazards of Wireless Radiation
Canada lagging behind China and Russia: Safety Code 6 needs to be updated now
By FRANK CLEGG |
The Hill Times
Many parents assume that if a wireless gadget is in the marketplace, it is safe for children. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. During the holiday season, I can only imagine how many children received a cell phone or tablet and how few families read the fine print; safety is not guaranteed and worse, Canada's Safety Code 6 is an antiquated regulation that lags behind Russia and China. We must do better.
Industry Canada Minister James Moore's recent announcement regarding improved notification of cell tower requests for towers less than 15 metres is a very important first step in improving the process to avoid the placement of cell towers where families can be harmed. This demonstrates that our government is listening.
Health Canada's Minister Ambrose now has a tremendous opportunity to join countries such as Belgium, France and Israel and put Canada back on the map for protecting its citizens' health.
Health Canada's Safety Code 6 governs the safety of cell phones, cell towers, Wi-Fi, smart meters and all other devices that now permeate every Canadian home. It impacts all of us, every day, and should protect us. But Safety Code 6 has not been significantly updated since the 1970s, long before Wi-Fi was invented or cell phones were sold.
Smart phone manufacturers Apple, Motorola, and Cisco all publish warnings in their manuals saying their phones, pads and Wi-Fi devices emit radiation shown to cause cancer in lab animals and to avoid over-exposure by holding it away from your body, or to keep a safe distance from "the lower abdomen of a teenage girl." Despite those stern warnings, the same companies are able to put such potentially harmful devices on store shelves in Canada. They are exercising a loophole in Health Canada's archaic safety standards for microwave devices that hasn't been updated in decades, since the first microwave, then the only emitting device in a Canadian home.
Belgium and France have new laws that don't allow manufacturers to market wireless devices to children because they are the most vulnerable. In Canada, we still force children in schools to be exposed to unmeasured levels of microwave radiation from cell phones and Wi-Fi.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has indicated that direct, long-term contact with wireless radiation is biologically harmful and can potentially have damaging health effects. In August 2011, shortly after the WHO classified radiofrequency radiation (the basis for all wireless devices) as possibly carcinogenic, Health Canada posted a warning that "encourages parents to reduce children's radiofrequency radiation (RF) exposure from cell phones since children are typically more sensitive to a variety of environmental agents". There hasn't been any major progress since then. Canadians are left to read the foreign press to learn about the universal dangers of wireless radiation, if they want to protect their families.
Fortunately the sea is beginning to change across Canada with local governments rejecting Health Canada's antiquated approach to this 21st century health crisis. What we've witnessed in the last six months is much like the national movement that began in Quebec in the early 1990s. Municipalities had rejected the federal government's promise that all regulated pesticides are safe, and began banning the use of weed spray in urban environments due to high cancer rates.
Municipalities once again are finding their strength in municipal law and proactively ensuring citizens are better protected.
On Dec. 16, 2013, the City of West Vancouver Council voted against a Rogers' application to install three new cell towers along Upper Levels highway. On the same day, the City of Guelph Council passed a motion asking Industry Canada to place a moratorium on the approval of any new radio communication facilities until such time as the review of Safety Code 6 has been finalized. On Dec. 18, 2013, the City of Toronto Council required new Rogers cell towers to comply with Toronto's Prudent Avoidance Policy which sets radiation levels 100 times safer than Health Canada's Safety Code 6. Toronto also updated its protocol for cell towers less than 15 metres tall stating that "City Council encourage Health Canada to actively review health evidence, including the most recent scientific research and studies, related to human exposure to radiofrequencies and to revise Safety Code 6 to meet international best practices, in consultation with the public and appropriate experts." The towns of Thorold and Oakville, Ont. have already passed similar motions.
What Canada needs is a national approach that acknowledges what independent scientists have conclusively shown: There is no guarantee that children can be exposed to any amount of wireless radiation for any amount of time without a biological impact.
Many of the scientists sounding the alarm bell are the same individuals who warned us about acid rain, second-hand smoke, DDT, asbestos and other widespread public health disasters. As harmful as these banned agents are, none of them were more widespread in our homes than wireless radiation is now. Canada should enter the 21st century of health carethe age of preventionand prevent another disaster by updating Safety Code 6.

Largest MA utility declares 'smart' meters IRRATIONAL
An Enemalta official said that the sealed smart meters are extremely difficult to tamper with without detection, which goes to show that the racket functioned with a high level of sophistication.
Energy giant faces prosecution over noise from new power line
Mr Byford said: "This thing hums creating a tonal noise which everybody in the area, even several miles away, can hear. I live a mile and a half away up on the braes above the substation and I regularly hear the noise, especially when you have a still night and are trying to sleep.
"All last summer we weren't able to sit in our gardens and relax because of the noise. There are about 1500 people here who are affected, but some in the neighbouring Kiltarlity parish are as well."
He said he had a colleague who lived three and a half miles away who could hear it occasionally.

"I live in Laval and since they installed the new meter in my house there is about 5-6 months , I started to feel a range of symptoms : heart palpitations, tinnitus , nervousness, anxiety , headache , severe fatigue and so on. I am 29 years old and I 've never been known for health problems . In another, I 've always been a very active person . The past few months , I no longer have that same energy once because of these multiple symptoms that are very disturbing . "

"They changed our meter a few weeks ago! I am a very person to listen to my body and I am almost never sick . I noticed for about a month - because there it gets worse with more time when I 'm home . I am outside the country every week for a few days and I saw no symptoms for my work. So at home , I often wake up at night and in my body , then it is as if ca vibrates as if I was hyper- stressed ! I do not know how to explain ... it's like a big tension inside me. The core debate me as if I had to jog ! But I notice that it happens at night and when I 'm mostly at rest ! Last week, I had a big headache that lasted until my departure outside the country. I had a face red and hot and as heartbeat in your head! So the next day wake up from my sleep away from home, more symptoms at all! So I started to look for causes and what was my surprise to see that smart meters provide Hydro-Québec health problems . There, I just arrived from my trip last night ! And that night it still has not been . I started having symptoms , stress and headache . Legs picossent me kind of stressed legs move ! And there 's more, I have the heart to debate me and as a pain in the trapezius and behind the neck down in the middle of the back. So I decided this morning ! I have not slept all night and I feel stressed after me ! I called Hydro me this morning to remove the meter . I want to know nothing about it on the home that is final ! It starts here ! ! "

Although the first study linking tobacco with lung cancer was produced in 1939, the influence of the tobacco industry on inept or corrupt politicians and a complicit media meant the public was kept unaware of the risks for decades.
Had the Fourth Estate done what it is supposed to do, i.e. warn and inform the public, many lives would have been saved and untold human misery avoided. Tragically, the media, whether because of advertising revenue or other pressures, chose to give coverage to industry-designed and funded studies and to ignore research showing harmful effects.
History is repeating. Disturbingly, this newspaper ran the article, 'Cellphones Safe for Kids,' and was either ignorant of other research showing contrary results, or deliberately chose to withold this information. The International Agency for Research on Cancer, (IARC), classified cellphone emissions as possibly carcinogenic, the same category tobacco and asbestos were in for years. Cancer, typically takes 30 years to develop. Should the IARC, the Russian National Commission on Non-Ionising Radiation Protection and many other internationally recognised scientists, be correct and the Dominion Post be wrong, the little boy in the photo you publish, may well be one of the victims of your misinformation.
