Building Access Handbook 2007 (B.C.)

Illustrated Commentary on Access Requirements in the 2006 British Columbia Building Code


People with ES / EHS are currently prevented/hindered from accessing certain buildings and public areas.

From the Office of Housing and Construction Standards

INTRODUCTION

"It is important for users of the B.C. Building Code to be reminded that the presence and participation of persons with disabilities in our communities is significant. The percentage of persons with disabilities of all ages will increase, especially over the next few decades. This growth will include persons with all types of disabilities, each type having their own specific design needs.

"The roles of persons with disabilities in society are ever expanding and need to be recognized. Not only are persons with disabilities receivers of services, they are also providers. For example, they are students and educators, employees and employers, shoppers and merchants, spectators and athletes, residents of buildings and designers of buildings, to name a few. They participate in all aspects of community life and in doing so, utilize all types of buildings. Users of the code, specifically the sections dealing with building requirements for persons with disabilities, must be aware of the strong impact that proper application of the code has on the day-to-day lives of people with disabilities. Accessibility is paramount. Thoughtful and careful use of this handbook in applying the building requirements for persons with disabilities will benefit all members of the community. . .

Definitions
"1.1.3. . . . Access or accessible means that a person with disabilities is, without assistance, able to approach, enter, pass to and from, and make use of an area and its facilities, or either of them. . . .

EMF Reduction for Autism

Article includes links to references, resources, autism survey and videos

"The question to ask in not can children recover, but what are the most simple and effective protocols for recovery? Families with autistic childrenare already overburdened and overloaded on all levels. They need something simple and effective that they can try for free.

"That protocol now exists and most children who try it improve. After everything I've done over the the last 15 years, this was the most effective, and in retrospect, if I had known about it at the beginning, I would have started with this protocol. The protocol is fairly simple and can be taught to children. The hard part is believing that it will work and changing a long held assumption that electromagnetic fields and wireless radiation are completely safe. This is something that I truly believed as an engineer and designer in Silicon Valley. It took me several years to release this tightly held assumption. . . .

Doctor's Information Package

Addressed to Medical Professionals. Useful to all. Updated July 19, 2014

The following package is for those who wish to approach their doctors with information regarding the possible health risks from non-thermal microwave radiation.  It contains links organized into specific health effect categories.  These links can be printed out according to personal areas of need or concern, and used to start a dialogue with doctors who may not as yet have associated certain health conditions with EMF or RF exposure.  

The introductory letter on pages 1 and 2 contains a link to the entire list, and may be useful to your doctor as a reference tool. 


"Dear Medical Professional:

"Your patient has asked us for support in providing you with information regarding the possible health risks from non-thermal microwave radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation, recently reclassified by the WHO/IARC as a Class 2B, possible human carcinogen.

"This WHO risk category also includes lead, DDT, chloroform, and dioxane, and is relevant to all wireless devices emitting radiofrequency electromagnetic fields, including cordless phones, cell phones, IPads, Wi-Fi routers, wireless games, baby monitors, and smart meters . . .

"Many doctors have already given medical advice to their patients by way of a medical letter or note on a prescription form stating that the patient should avoid, for medical reasons, living in a residence or residential complex at which a wireless meter is operating in order to maintain their health or avoid aggravating a medical condition. This medical advice stating the health condition and advising the patient that they should avoid ongoing exposure to wireless radiofrequency and smart meter emissions will allow your patient to participate in the Human Rights Action currently underway. We are hopeful that the individual's right to protect their health as advised by their medical doctor will be upheld by the Human Rights Tribunal, and this forced exposure within their own home to undesirable microwave radiofrequency emissions will be replaced with reasonable and respectful accommodation by BC Hydro . . . "

Information categories contained in this package: 

  1. Microwave Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Radiation - General 
  2. Smart Meters
  3. Interference with medical devices / Smart Meter Risk
  4. Children
  5. EHS/ES - Electrosensitivity

PETITION: CHARTER OF BRUSSELS

For the creation of European and International Criminal Court of the Environment and Health

Please consider signing and circulating. This is an important petition, long overdue, aimed at holding corporations, such as BC Hydro, accountable for ruining the health of our environment:  

Considering the inalienable human right to a healthy environment and the risk that the current level of biodiversity loss may be irreversible.  

On January 30th 2014, a coalition of organizations has gathered at the European Parliament to launch the "Charter of Brussels" which officially requests the establishment of a European and an International Criminal Court of the Environment and Health. The Charter calls for the recognition of environmental crimes as crimes against Humanity and Peace by the United Nations.

The Charter suggests a progressive approach in 3 steps:  

  • Supporting a moral tribunal to raise public awareness and enable civil society to judge responsibility for crimes against nature
  • The creation of a European Criminal Court of the Environment and Health  
  • The creation of an International Criminal Court of the Environment and Health  

The Charter is now open for signatures by individuals and organizations and will be handed over to Ban Ki-Moon, UN Secretary-General, during the General Assembly of the United Nations in September, as well as to the President of the European Commission, and the President of the European Council.  

Let's join our forces by signing the BRUSSELS CHARTER and show our political leaders that the public demands a Court to ensure environmental justice!

Only together we can make our voices heard.

Join the Alliance for International Justice of the Environment and Health and sign the Charter of Brussels now!

This comes from direct lobbying experience over many years. In order of effectiveness, starting with the strongest:

  1. Direct face-to-face meetings with legislators and government executives in their Provincial or Federal offices 
  2. Direct face-to-face meetings with legislators and government executives in their local offices. 
  3. Phone call to staffers. 
  4. Handwritten letters. 
  5. Printed letters (if on letterhead from powerful persons) 
  6. Printed letters 
  7. Email is not even looked at; there is just too much for staffers to do.

EHS Symptoms can be reduced or eliminated - Dr. Brian Clement ND

Interview transcript by Andre Fauteux, Editor Publisher of La Maison du 21e siecle magazine (Quebec Canada)

A naturopath who holds a doctorate in nutrition, Brian Clement says he has successfully treated more than 4,000 electrohypersensitive people at the Hippocrates Institute which he heads. Founded in Boston in 1956 by nutritionist Ann Wigmore and now based in Florida, the Institute is one of the world's most renowned natural health centers. Tens of thousands of people have seen their health improve after adopting its healthy lifestyle program and discovering the virtues of raw food cures (germinations, sprouts and their juices).

Here is the fascinating telephone interview he granted us in January, 2012:
