Important 6 page FLYER newsletter gives very good general information about
Sean Holman - The Tyee
There's an important new book out that will likely be very useful for this and other related issues: your right to know; how to use the law to access government information; how to access what government hides; how to hold institutions accountable; how to request pertinent info from government using both informal and formal requests. This information is rightfully free because it is a public interest issue.
"In their recently published book "Your Right to Know", journalists Jim Bronskill and David McKie have done yeomans' work explaining how Canadians can use freedom of information requests to get government secrets. But, at the federal level, it's work they shouldn't have needed to do -- pointing to another problem with Canada's broken access to information laws.
"Introduced in 1980 by Pierre Trudeau's Liberals, the Access to Information Act gave Canadians a limited right to request government records. The bureaucracy's filing cabinets could now metaphorically be opened by anyone -- unless the records in them included 75 different kinds of information that would still be considered secret.
"But, even with those limits, the Trudeau administration seemed to have little interest in telling voters about their newfound rights or how to exercise them.
"Just before the act came into force, the Globe and Mail told readers the government would be "placing posters in post offices and public libraries" to advertise the new program. But "it plans nothing else in the way of public information," a deficiency noted by information commissioner Inger Hansen in her first annual report. . . .

This survey is seeking to gain, among other things, insights about the impacts of EHS on those who are affected by it.
To participate, and preview the questions asked, first click the link in the introduction to open the "Online Consent Form" (Survey Consent). The applicable sections are differentiated in a darker font.
"This survey was approved under a broader project. We have grayed out the (many!) portions of the consent that don't pertain to this project. Please review it and indicate your agreement and willingness to participate below. You will only be consenting for the items that have already been marked with an "X".
One step closer towards gaining recognition for the rights of electromagnetic hypersensitivity throughout Europe
' . . . Awareness is growing and the UK Radiation Research Trust congratulate the 110 EESC members who took the first step towards their duty of care voting for the original opinion which supported the human rights of EHS people as presented to the EESC by Dr Isaac Jamieson in the call for support for the right to life, prohibition of torture and prohibition of discrimination as required to be part of all policy making. The Radiation Research Trust call on all members to listen to independent scientists and medical doctors with expertise in this area of concern and remind policy makers of their duty of care to protect those fundamental principles and basic human values.

Commentary to the European Economic and Social Committee on the European Convention on Human Rights
Attached is a commentary by Dr. Isaac Jamieson on Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity and Human Rights. As more of us are forced to live with higher and higher levels of exposure, the number of people who are sensitive is increasing dramatically. Victims suffer in many ways, including discrimination. It is vital that human rights be respected and measures taken to provide a safer environment.
The following is brief commentary on Human Rights, as related to electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS) and other conditions that may be affected as a result of exposure to manmade electromagnetic fields (EMFs). In this present work, relevant sections of the convention are indicated in the text below and their implications discussed.
It is intended that this commentary will be of benefit to policy makers, industry and members of the general public.
Of special note is the chart on page 2 showing exposure limits in various countries. Canada and the US have the same limits as ICNIRP recommends. Please see the statement at the bottom of the page - there are techniques and wireless devices that can cut levels significantly. Why aren't they being used in North America?

This is an excerpt from a short film I'm making about people who suffer from controversial condition Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity (EHS).
A version of this video and my photographs were shown on the Guardian website and the story and my photos were published in the Weekend Magazine on the 30th March 2013.

International Doctors' Appeal updated from 2002
Please forward this to as many medical doctors as soon as possible. Forward as well to family, friends and acquaintances. The doctors' signatures are valuable tools for affirmative action regarding wireless smart meters and other wireless technologies.
Signing the Appeal
Freiburger Appeal 2002
"Ten years ago, physicians of the Freiburg Appeal called on their colleagues, the public, and the politicians and health officials in charge because they were deeply concerned about the health of their fellow citizens. This Doctors' Appeal, in which they strongly warned about the dangers of wireless radiation, was translated into many languages and supported by more than 1000 physicians and more than 36,000 people worldwide.
"Over the past decade, the evidence of serious risks has been increasing and accumulating worldwide. As physicians, we observe a clear increase in health symptoms when radio-frequency exposure levels increase with regard to distance and time--especially in the case of heavy cell phone use, and in the vicinity of DECT cordless phones, Wi-Fi, and cell towers--including problems falling asleep and staying asleep, chronic fatigue, headaches, migraine, vertigo, tinnitus, unhealthy blood pressure levels and arrhythmias, concentration and memory problems, learning and behavioral disorders, a more frequent incidence of ADHD among children. And numerous studies of independent scientists have now confirmed many of these observations made by physicians.
"In the wake of the Freiburg Appeal, twelve other doctors' appeals requested overdue precautionary action in response to this worrisome situation--but so far in vain. The signatories of those appeals could rely on a professional Code of Ethics that requires a physician to participate in maintaining the natural basis of life regarding human health. The authors of this International Doctors' Appeal are guided by the same Code and today ask for your support.
"We encourage you to sign the attached appeal and ask you to forward this appeal as well as our information portal to other colleagues."

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
"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. . .
"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. . . .
