". . . Best Siting Practises to Provide a Safe Environment for All

Designate the CSRD as a Sensitive Community Area in its entirety, including Crown Lands, and apply a set of rules for all proponents to follow which requires democratically organized public meeting consultations and limitation of power density exposure for all antennae proposals and installations, regardless of height or size, including but not limited to stealth application, any and all modifications, free standing, building mounted, utility pole mounted, range extenders, collector units and micro and mini cells.

Require notification by regular mail letters, mail drop notices, posted notices, newspaper notices for all of the above within 500 meter radius regardless of height or industry. Crown Land applications to be posted in local newspapers and posted notices in the general area. Automatic notification of all new antennae to local special interest groups.

Federal change Feb 2014 allows for public consultation regardless of height, including cell antennae under 15 meters.

Endorse a Prudent Avoidance Policy for Cell Tower and Antennae Siting

Maintain a distance of 500 meters from living and working areas for new cell towers and antennae. mmmmmIdentify and exclude areas and structures which house or host the most at risk in community, being children, pregnant mothers, elderly and immune compromised:

1. Childcare facilities, schools and colleges

Nova Scotia couple suing Bell Aliant re cell tower damage

Edna & Marshall Pettipas would appreciate your help - She is fighting for us all

" . . . Edna's success could have important favourable repercussions in the public interest. It is an opportunity that should be grasped. The other side with their incomparable financial resources is likely to bring witnesses, from medical and physics perspectives, who will try to negate that harm and loss could befall Edna due to cell tower radiation. To meet this challenge, more witnesses are needed for Edna's side, in the public interest. 

"Edna's lawyer has shown bravery in taking the case on contingency, i.e. he does not get paid unless he wins. That means, however, that fundraising is necessary to enable bringing international experts to testify at the trial. These witnesses' names need to be submitted to the court in a few months time, well in advance of the trial. So there is pressure to meet a deadline.

"This is an appeal for donations to enable such witnesses to attend. All donations will be used strictly towards bringing witnesses for Edna's case. Please donate now directly to Edna's Legal Fund

"On Feb 5, 2014, Industry Minister James Moore announced Changes to Industry Canada's Antenna Tower Siting Policy, CPC-2-0-03. http://news.gc.ca/web/article-en.do?nid=813859

"On Feb. 27, 2014, Industry Canada announced a consultation process for these changes.

"This is every Canadian citizen and politician's opportunity to have their concerns and opinions considered on Industry Canada's update to cell tower and antenna citing protocols.

"The deadline is March 31, 2014

"C4ST supports Industry Minister James Moore in the proposed changes to the IC tower siting policy as a step in the right direction. We do however have concerns.

Send Industry Canada your thoughts on the updates to the cellular tower notification process. . . .

The Truth About Cell Towers - POWERPOINT

information compiled by Una St. Clair October, 2013

Cell tower power point to keep on hand and share with others who want to do a cell tower meeting. 

Aug 6

Good morning,

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.

Cell Towers in West Vanvouver

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.
