Our new video shows the results of a NANOS survey that highlight how Canadians perceive the radiation that comes from everyday wireless devices - and its potentially harmful health effects. Canadians are seriously concerned about wireless radiation, and C4ST is working hard to make sure Canadian technology is safe technology.
The purpose of this video is to give a short intro to C4ST, the issue and what needs to be done to change it. We intend to engage and start conversation with the public and politicians alike.
Please share this with your contacts, politicians, and press in your local communities. It can also be found on the front page of the main website www.c4st.org.
Thank you for sharing this important information.

Why are they dangerous for our kids - and what you can do about it!
A new group of concerned West Vancouver residents has formed the Cell Towers Action Group of West Vancouver. Our objective is to get a moratorium on Rogers' proposal for 3 massive cell towers in our area.
Our West Vancouver Council will vote on this in September, so we are working on raising awareness, encouraging residents to take action, and encouraging them to attend the meeting in September. The municipality vote will go a long way in determining if this goes ahead or not. We also understand the jurisdiction complications.
If anyone in the North Shore of Vancouver would like to join our Group, they are welcome. The towers will roll out there, too, if Rogers follows through with its plan.
Please contact CTAG@shaw.ca if interested.
Attached is our latest flyer / handout which summarizes our message and call to action.

" . . . Right now, the way the legislation is drawn up, a tower can be put up any place, without a building permit or site plan agreement. It appears that big business can bully their way into our communities and do whatever they want, unless we object and vehemently oppose.
"We need your help to start making change. This issue won't go away. It may not be in your backyard today, but there's a good possibility that it may be in the works tomorrow.. The request is simple. It is not an objection to cell towers that is needed. It is an objection to the process of their placement that we must change.
"There is no established protocol that determines where towers can and cannot be placed. Presently, the process allows for the public to object, but the response back is that Safety Code 6 will be followed. Research around the world says that Safety Code 6 is inadequate, it is obsolete. I can only hope that the Rogers cell tower proposed on Lynx Lake Road is stopped and that an alternate site is chosen where it will not negatively impact on the residents. A precedent can be set here and now.
"If every person in our municipality alone contacted their municipal, provincial and federal elected representatives expressing concern and objection to the present process of allowing free rein to big business to place towers wherever they deem appropriate, we, the people, can make huge change. We only need to make ourselves heard loud and clear."

To date, 59 Municipal Councils, after being approached by their constituents, have officially asked the Liberal government for a moratorium or opt-out from the Wireless Smart Meter Program.
Local councils need to take steps to defend the health, safety and human rights of their constituents. If they haven't already done so, they need to represent the people in their ridings, and people need to speak up for their rights.
According to Bill 23-2008 of the British Columbia Public Health Act, section 83 (1), Section 83 (1), a municipality must take action when it learns of something that could be harmful to its residents. It must notify the Minister of Health or take immediate action.
We can't say it strongly enough: Approach local councils NOW, and demand safe neighbourhoods!
If you don't, the change we need won't happen.
