Citizens for Safe Technology
Empowering the public to protect children
and nature from unsafe wireless technologies.
Communities and Governments / Cell Towers / Cell Phones / Meters and more.
Information and strategies exist to deal with communication technologies and infrastructure at societal levels, and facilitate awareness and proactive solutions. Hiding behind outdated Federal regulations (in Canada, Safety Code 6) does not remove the elected official's obligation to act in the best interests of the public.

Una St. Clair addresses the Columbia Shuswap Regional District regarding the dangers of electromagnetic exposure
" . . . This is very telling and very frightening, I think this should concern all of us. And here's the meat of the issue - some insurance companies have studied the matter and have refused to cover anyone in the telecom industry because the liability issue is expected to be higher than tobacco and asbestos."
"St. Clair suggested directors designate the entire regional district a sensitive area and, among other requests, asked for CSRD to request removal and re-positioning of cell towers which have been sited within 500 metres of area where people, live, work and go to school."
POWERPOINT - Communication Antennae Policy to Respect Values for Community Sensitive Siting Protocols
POWERPOINT for community cell tower awareness
45 slides for presentation to community organizations, businesses, councils, and citizens.
". . . 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
3. Recreation Centres
4. Elderly care homes
5. Recreational parks and playcentres

Tale Back Your Power - November 17, 2014
" . . . I can't help feeling discouraged by how lost British Columbia has become -- or should I say, how lost those who run BRITISH COLUMBIA, the for-profit corporation masquerading as government, have become.
"It appears the management in my home province has now completed its descent into the slimy waiting hands of mafioso. And BC Hydro is all-in, now autocratically committing crimes against everyone in the province. . .

An Electronic Silent Spring - Facing the Dangers and Creating Safe Limits
"Society has received profound benefits from electronics. We have developed and marketed electronic technologies [that emit electromagnetic radiation (EMR)] without recognition or regulation of its effects on human health or wildlife. Katie Singer's book, An Electronic Silent Spring, and this website are dedicated to encouraging recognition that EMR can harm people and wildlife; to protective solutions for the public health and our ecosystem.
"While they operate, mobile phones, mobile phone chargers, iPads, cellular antennas, Wi-Fi, compact fluorescent lights, transformers and "smart" utility meters emit electromagnetic radiation (EMR) at frequencies and amplitudes that are not found in nature. An Electronic Silent Spring describes how wildlife and peoples' health are affected.

ALERT - Proposed legislation would silence those with whom the government disagrees . . .
"One of our most important civil liberties is the right to discuss and debate issues of concern within our communities. Silencing those with whom the government disagrees, or allowing others to silence this debate for purposes of their own, is tantamount to limiting our free speech.
What is this government so afraid of? In a healthy democracy, debate should be encouraged. Stifling discourse will lead to tyranny, which seems to be the way this government wants to rule. Ruling by fear and through threats does not belong in BC or Canada.
"This is the next logical step in the way the govt. is trying to do business. First, govern by directive so that no opposition can be voiced by the other party. Second, shut down any public opposition by groups exercising their civil rights.
"This is not a government that can withstand scrutiny, and it wants to make sure it has to answer to no one!
"Is the opposition going to speak out about this? This should be strongly debated, with significant public input - not hidden as it has been.
"This White Paper is frightening, and I find this proposal appalling.
