Citizens for Safe Technology
Empowering the public to protect children
and nature from unsafe wireless technologies.
From these communications, leaders and officials with responsibilities in Local, Provincial, State and Federal positions, with a genuine desire to affect healthy, positive change, could build a useful understanding of wireless impacts in their communities.
Governments need to form pro-active plans to act in the best interests of their citizens, not merely for profit, but for the health and welfare of future generations.

Canadian Medical Association Journal says professor on panel had been hired to work for Industry Canada.
"The Royal Society of Canada will reconsider its decision to appoint a University of Ottawa professor to chair a panel that will assess the safety of radiowave-emitting devices such as cellular phones, following a CMAJ investigation that reveals a potential conflict-of-interest.
"The society's decision comes after CMAJ informed it that Daniel Krewski, who is a professor in the Faculty of Medicine, University of Ottawa, Ontario and Director of the R. Samuel McLaughlin Centre, failed to disclose to the society that he had a "$126 000 contract in 2008-2009 from Industry Canada. According to the Merx public tender document, Krewski's contract was to "assist in addressing what the Department believes is opposition often based on misperception and misinformation" with respect to cellphone antennas.
"In an interview with CMAJ, Krewski confirmed that he held this contract and that he had not specifically disclosed it to the society.
"After being informed about the contract and Krewski's admission that he had failed to disclose it, Geoffrey Flynn, who chairs the society's Committee on Expert Panels and its Scientific Advisory Committee, told CMAJ he would "take it back to the panels" to reconsider the choice of Krewski as chair.
"I don't think there's anything nefarious in it that he didn't disclose it," Flynn says. "The most positive view is that [Krewski] is so busy he overlooked it." . . .

Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) and Southern California Edison (SCE)
"Attorneys David Kyle and Paul Overett have filed a mass tort lawsuit against two California utilities: Southern California Edison (SCE) and Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) for health damages from exposure to smart meters, and or smart grid. Also named in the lawsuit are smart meter installer companies, Corix and Wellington and smart meter manufacturers, Itron and Landis and Gyr, with possibly more defendants to be added as the lawsuit progresses.
"Attorney David Kyle has previously won a small claims lawsuit against SCE over smart meter installation, and settled with PG&E in a wrongful death suit involving an alleged smart meter fire. "Sixteen plaintiffs, ten SCE customers and six PG&E customers allege they suffered health effects ranging from headaches, insomnia, chronic fatigue, ringing in the ears, dizziness, heart palpitations, to heart attacks and medical implant interference from exposure to smart meters.
"The suit alleges the defendants withheld important safety information associated with the use of smart meters as well as multiple violations of CA laws, including California Civil Code section 1710 which defines deceit as an untrue assertion or suppression of a fact so as to mislead.
"Plaintiffs allege negligence, intentional infliction of emotional distress, fraud and deceit, and products liability.
"Elizabeth Barris, organizer for the lawsuit invites customers from other California utilities, including municipally run utilities, whose health has been effected by smart meters or smart grid to join the lawsuit. Elizabeth can be contacted at 310-281-9639 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org

Terence Young in the House of Commons, May 30, 2013
"MP Terence Young rose in the House of Commons on May 30, 2013 to share how there must be more caution used in the placement of cellular tower antennaes that emit radio frequency radiation. Click here to see MP Young in action standing up for Canadians.
"In Oakville, Bell Canada has by stealth placed multiple antennae just 11 metres from a child's bedroom. Their business is booming and legally they don't have to care" said MP Young. "But, ethically how can Bell callously ignore the legitimate health concerns of Canadians - many of whom are their own customers? Today, I call on Bell Canada, for the second time in this house: listen to the children, move Bell antennae away from homes and schools!"
"MP Young also congratulated the students of Dearcroft Montessori/Westwind Junior High for their initiative in learning about EMR and implementing their own policies on safe use of technology. Click here to see the press release.
"C4ST would like to thank MP Young for his courage. We call on the MP's across Canada to do the same; call for stricter guidelines and exposure limits to protect Canadians from the dangers of wireless radiation exposure, update Safety Code 6."

Re: Conflict of Interest on the Expert Panel Review of Safety Code 6: Potential Health Risks of Radiofrequency Fields from Wireless Telecommunications Devices.
"Dear Dr. Grise,
"We are a national organization promoting the safe use of wireless technology. Our membership and Board of Directors are comprised of Canadian scientists, internet technology executives, industry analysts, legislative researchers and lawyers, among others.
"We are aware that the Royal Society of Canada has been contracted by Health Canada to provide an independent review of its latest update to Safety Code 6 and to examine whether it protects Canadians from exposure to microwave radiation.
"With great respect to the Royal Society of Canada and its esteemed history in our country, and to your credentialed body of selected panelists, we are extremely concerned that your panel is unfairly balanced and many members hold conflicts of interest that fail the Royal Society's published guidelines for panel selection.
"In general, the reviewers you have selected:
C4ST ANNOUNCEMENT: SC6 is under review by a conflicted panel!
Safety Code 6 is UNDER REVIEW BY A CONFLICTED PANEL!
Health Canada has updated Safety Code 6 and is employing an "independent" panel to review its work. It has hired the Royal Society of Canada, which has strict guidelines to protect against conflicts of interest.
This "independent review panel" is not independent at all, and is conflicted as per the Royal Society's own guidelines. We are concerned its results are pre-determined, will not be objective and will not protect Canadians.
The panel with its predetermined viewpoints and conflicted financial interests will oversee the most important scientific review of our time, a review that will define whether or not safety guidelines for radiation should be tightened and address the concerns of thousands of Canadians already reporting the effects of current exposure.
The selection of a significantly conflicted panel is unlikely to make decisions to protect Canadians. We are concerned that the results are predetermined.
This morning we launch our national campaign calling for this panel to be dissolved and re-assembled following Royal Society's own guidelines.
C4ST has called on the Harper government, Minister of Health, and President of the RSC to dissolve the current panel and create a new truly independent panel using the Royal Society's existing published guidelines for panel selection.
The letters are available on our site to be viewed and shared.
We call on all groups involved across Canada to stand as one behind this motion.
Re: Looming Threat to Canada's National Security - Indiscriminate Use of Wireless Technology for Our Critical Infrastructure
"Dear Ms. Ablonczy,
"I respectfully submit that Steven Harper needs to know that he's not being well served by some of those around him - which is putting Canada in peril.
"The greatest threat to Canada's National Security in its entire history is slowly emerging thanks to the systemic conflict of interest, collusion and corruption that continues unchecked within elements of Industry Canada, Health Canada's Radiation Protection Branch, provincial governments, the wireless and telecommunications industries, the Canadian Wireless and Telecommunications Agency (CWTA) and electric utilities across the country. All of the above are aggressively and stubbornly promoting a national electric power grid utilizing wireless radio technology! As a retired Canadian Armed Forces captain who specialized in Electronic Warfare (EW) and Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) for most of my 26-year career, I can say without fear of contradiction that no communication system on Earth is more defenseless against or more vulnerable to attack than is a wireless radio system. Some recent U.S. pronouncements supporting my contention follow (The reader must note that the U.S. too is experiencing the same challenges of conflicts of interest/collusion/corruption with respect to the inappropriate use of wireless technology in their national electric power grid as is Canada):
