MOMS WHO CARE

We need your help. Frank Clegg CEO - C4ST

"Today, we launch the most significant campaign to date for C4ST, and for all Canadians concerned about wireless radiation. The target audience is "Moms" in Canada. The action is to have concerned Moms send an email to their local MP and to the Minister of Health Jane Philpott through our new campaign website. Although the campaign is directed to Moms primarily, all concerned Canadians, including Children, can send an email.  

"On June 18, 2015 we sent you an email that the 2015 Standing Committee on Health (HESA) presented its report "RADIOFREQUENCY ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION AND THE HEALTH OF CANADIANS" with 12 important recommendations to the House of Commons. Due to the election being called in August 2015, the requirement for the government to respond to the report was cancelled.

"Over the past few months, C4ST has had one on one meetings with well over 30 MP's. As a result of some of those discussions, on Wednesday June 15th, 2016, MP Bill Casey (Cumberland-Colchester) as HESA Chair, presented the same report on Safety Code 6 to the current House of Commons requesting an official government response. We thank MP Casey, MP John Oliver (Oakville) and the other members of the current HESA committee for their decision to present this report to the 42nd Parliament.

"The current government now has 120 days to respond although the Minister of Health, Jane Philpott's office is expected to receive a copy of the report a month before that (mid September). . . .

No Where To Go To School

Mandatory Exposure to Microwave Radiation In Our Schools Has Left 11 Year Old With No Where To Go To School

"Tyler is one of many children who is suffering from the mandatory exposure to the wireless technology that has been installed in our schools. Parents are frustrated with having to deal with School Boards who are willfully turning a blind eye to the thousands of peer reviewed studies confirming the health effects from this unregulated technology that has never been tested for safety. Here is a story that needs to be told! . . .

Doctor's Information Package

Addressed to Medical Professionals. Useful to all. Updated July, 2016

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
  6. Diabetes
  7. Heart
  8. Tinnitus / Microwave Hearing / Dental Effects
  9. Sleep and Insomnia
  10. Infertility / Sperm Damage
  11. Cell Towers - Applicable to constant low-level exposures
  12. Cell Phones
  13. Published Articles
  14. BEES - This section included due to potential impacts on human health from loss of bees and pollination
  15. Lawsuits, Scientific Statements and Letters

Wi-Fi Now Confab Bars Press; FCC Commissioner Told

O'Dwyer's - Inside News of Public Relations and Marketing Communications (New York)

"The Wi-Fi Now 2016 conference April 19-21 in Tysons Corner, Va., after giving O'Dwyer's press credentials, has withdrawn them after being told O'Dwyer's would raise health issues related to Wi-Fi, cellphones and other radiation sources.

"The press boycott poses a problem for Jessica Rosenworcel, Commissioner of the Federal Communications Commission, who is to give a "Fireside Chat" Thursday, April 21 from 11 to 11:30 a.m. at the Sheraton Tysons Corner Hotel. . . .

"Such a boycott should not be allowed in America. An O'Dwyer staffer should be able to cover the Rosenworcel talk and ask questions. . . .

"Having been shut out of "the world's first Wi-Fi conference," health advocates have created "Wired Health Now 2016" which will run in cyberspace on the same three days as Wi-Fi Now on the O'Dwyer website.

"Dozens of participants have been lined up who have already submitted texts that have links to scientific studies, YouTubes, testimony to government groups, etc. Technicians who have measured radiation levels in New York City apartments will present their findings.

"Topics will include actions by citizens groups demanding removal of Wi-Fi from classrooms and libraries; actions by government bodies in the U.K., France, Canada, Russia, Israel and other countries limiting use of Wi-Fi and warning about the dangers they present; lawsuits asking for monetary damages because of Wi-Fi; citizens groups protesting plans by Google and others to blanket the earth with Wi-Fi emitting radiation; use of wireless "smart" utility meters, and coverage of the failure of mainstream media to pay much attention to health issues and Wi-Fi, cellphones, cell towers, and other sources of radiation. . . .


Here are some of the presenters at the the Wi-Fi conference.  Notice the Federal Communications Commissioner.  A cozy relationship between the companies and the regulator, it appears.  The FCC in the US is comparable to Industry Canada.

Canadian Teacher, Forced out by Wi-Fi, Goes on Warpath

O'Dwyers - Inside News of Public Relations and Marketing Communications (New York)

"Maria Plant, British Columbia teacher afflicted with electromagnetic hypersensitivity, has gone on the media warpath after years of rebuffs from government and school officials, scant media attention.

"She is publicizing the validation of her illness by a Canadian Parliamentary committee in any way she can. Among those resisting her message is the BC Teachers Federation which will not publish her letter.  

"After years of a "media blackout" on the subject, articles have run in the Vancouver Sun and The Province, she notes, expressing the hope for more such articles. Plant's letter in its entirety is below. . .

Canadians Leading Battle vs. Wi-Fi Pollution

Jack O'Dwyer - Inside News of Public Relations and Marketing Communications (New York)

Wi-Fi pollution is "worst crime ever against humanity" but scientists, doctors and the "sinfully silent news media" are failing to warn the public, says WF health advocate Jerry Flynn (retired Canadian Armed Forces captain who spent 22 years in its "Electronic Warfare" unit)

WI-FRIED! "Teachers At Risk from Wi-Fi"

Letter from a teacher to BCTF Magazine, March 22, 2016

" . . . The committee also agreed that children in schools should be protected from unnecessary exposure to wireless technology, particularly when alternative technologies exist, and that the potential risks of exposure to RF fields are a serious public health issue that needs to be brought to the attention of Canadians so that they have the knowledge to use wireless devices responsibly, and are able to make decisions about the use of wireless devices in a manner that protects their health and the health of their families.

"Wouldn't it be prudent at this point in time that Canada's school boards who are entrusted with the care of young children implement the precautionary principle, heeding Dr. Magda Havas' advice from page 16 of this report:

"Safety Code 6 should follow example by protecting the most sensitive people within our population."

An excellent opinion piece written by someone who is very new to the debate about the safety of microwave radiation.

 "I have been vaguely aware of and vaguely concerned about the growing controversy regarding the safety of radio frequency (RF) microwave technology that supports the current wireless industry. I happened to discover a newly released TED talk on the subject, and the supporting research offered, during the same time period that Verizon is attempting to build a cell tower in the heart of a densely populated residential neighborhood -- Lake Forest Estates. The talk, the research, and the efforts of a small but passionate group of Pagosa residents to oppose this tower in particular, and towers in residential neighborhoods more generally, have gotten me off the fence, and off the couch. . . .

"This proposed Lake Forest tower is only the beginning of Verizon's 4G service rollout in our area. Proliferating microwave wireless technology requires more and more towers to carry more and more bandwidth, for voice and data services. I suspect this wireless proliferation will continue throughout the land until there is finally public awareness and outcry sufficient to change government policy to adopt better and safer technologies. In the meantime, I think opposing the placement of cell towers in residential neighborhoods, even if they look like poor imitations of pine trees, is a worthwhile cause. . . .

"I appreciate fast and dependable internet service as much as the next guy and would love to have access to a fiber optics system. I think, however, that the government-protected rollout of wireless broadband across the country will eventually prove to be the wrong road taken toward 21st Century communications."
