"The company will be rolling out the spectrum gradually on its high-speed LTE network across the country, in both urban and rural areas. . . .
"The federal government earned $5.27 billion from the auction of 97 licences for the coveted 700-megahertz spectrum, which was previously used for over-the-air analog TV signals . . . .

C4ST - RSC Conflicted Review of Safety Code 6 Released
Two Scientists Break Silence on "Major Flaws" in Royal Society's Recent Report on Safety of Cell Phones and Towers, Smart Meters and Wi-Fi -
C4ST - CNW - April 14, 2014:
OTTAWA, April 14, 2014 /CNW/ - Two peer reviewers involved in this month's Royal Society report on wireless safety say the results cannot be trusted, because the Panel ignored evidence that wireless radiation is harmful to humans.
The scientific reviewers also said key panelists were in conflict of interest as they regularly accept funding from wireless and energy companies.
One of the reviewers, Dr. Martin Blank, holds two PhD's and has published more than 200 papers at Columbia University on the health effects of wireless radiation. The other reviewer, Dr. Anthony Miller MD, is Professor Emeritus at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health at the University of Toronto.
Both say the Royal Society panel ignored scientific evidence published over the past five years. As peer reviewers, they noted some panelists were conflicted and others lacked sufficient expertise.
"The Royal Society panel has failed in its obligation to the public," said Dr. Miller. "It ignored recent evidence that wireless radiation is a probable carcinogen."
Dr. Miller said he is most concerned about involuntary exposure, such as children exposed to Wi-Fi in schools.
Dr. Blank said the Royal Society dismissed definitive studies that prove wireless radiation causes harm to human cells, including sperm cells when men carry phones in their pockets.
"We don't need further study to lower safety limits," said Dr. Blank. "There is already enough evidence to recommend lower limits for wireless radiation in Canada."
The Royal Society's panel has been mired in controversy. Last summer, the original Chair resigned after a conflict of interest was exposed in the media. The Royal Society promised to publish the remaining scientists' conflicts in its final report, but did not.

"Hydro Quebec is getting ready to roll out its new smart meters in the rest of the province after nearly completing the operation in the Montreal area.
"And opponents are none too pleased.
"A group of 20 people demonstrated before heading into this morning's Energy Board hearings on the authorization of the second and third phases of the installation. Another protest is planned for this Saturday.
"The Refuson les Compteurs collective has tabled over 440 briefs before the Energy Board. They describe the smart meter's impact on their health and the grief they get from Hydro workers when they refuse to have them installed. "Rosemont resident Julie Rocque said she put two and two together after doing some research and coming upon studies as well as the Refusons les Compteurs movement.
"For me it was a lot of heart palpitations, real difficulty concentrating, weird fatigue all of a sudden, like fatigue drops, things I've never had in my life," Rocque told CJAD 800 News.
"To me I was able, by chance, to put it together but a lot of people are not able to put it together, because a lot of these symptoms are things that could be caused by other things, insomnia, headaches, etc."
"The collective is calling for a moratorium on the installation until more studies are done.. . .

Citizens For Safe Technology
"Wi-Fi: Is It Safe?"
Citizens for Safe Technology is a not-for-profit educational society made up of parents, grandparents, teachers, business professionals, scientists, politicians and lawyers concerned about the exponential increase in public exposure to harmful wireless technologies.
We believe a profound urgency exists to protect the unsuspecting public, especially children, youth and pregnant mothers from unsafe wireless technologies.
