"The following guest editorial about smart meters was written by John Ranns, the longtime Mayor of the District of Metchosin on southern Vancouver Island in British Columbia. Mayor Ranns wrote this guest editorial in November 2013 and submitted it for publication to theVictoria Times-Colonist and subsequently to other major newspapers in British Columbia. When his secretary followed up with the Victoria Times-Colonist about the status of his submission, the newspaper said it would not be publishing the piece because the piece was not topical. Mayor Ranns received no other replies from major media, and ultimately no major media outlets published his piece.

Canadian Teacher Foundation - October, 2013
Oct 2013, in a letter from Canadian Teacher Foundation to Royal Society of Canada, the CTF says that of 3800 teachers surveyed. 31.5% agreed that precautions to limit exposure from WI-FI in schools should be taken.
"We propose a prudent approach to the use of Wi-Fi, especially where children are present. Our poll of teachers clearly indicated that pedagogical needs could be met in schools with an approach that limits exposure to Wi-Fi."

"A short clip that uses the simple delivery of a pizza to show how the current pricing structure of Hydro One is affecting RURAL RESIDENTS, and the burden it is placing on retirees and pensioners in rural areas. It is a tongue-in-cheek clip but is also very serious, as many of our seniors are afraid to turn on their lights. They wear three sweaters to stay warm and still get a $500.00 monthly bill or more.
"For those who live in the city, do you know what the government has done to the Rurals?"

C4ST Update March 17, 2014
We apologize for the delay in updating you on the progress over the past few months. The team has all been extremely busy with their respective roles and actions. We anticipate the next few to be just as busy as the Royal Society review of Safety Code 6 is due to be released. Below are 3 key updates.
As of this AM, we are pleased to inform you that C4ST is now officially bilingual, representing both English and French speaking Canadians working to update Safety Code 6 at the federal level. Our intro French page can be found HERE. This morning we sent out a press release introducing our two new French speaking board members Ms Veronique Riopel, and Ms Francine Riopel, who are joining the C4ST board from Laval Refuse, a smart meter opposition group in Laval Quebec who just last week achieved great success when Laval council adopted precedent setting resolutions regarding smart meters. See the resolutions HERE. Ms Riopel and Ms Lajoie will immediately assume the roles of both smart meter and French representations for C4ST. The press release from this morning can be found HERE.
Today we also launch our campaign for public consultation on Industry Canada's proposed updates to their antenna citing procedures CPC-2-0-03. This is the mandated guideline that all telecommunication carriers must adhere to when installing new cellular towers/antennae. It is this procedure that has been at the heart of thousands Canadians' and municipalities' nightmares as towers go up with little to no notification to neighbouring residents, and no recourse. Industry Canada has opened a consultation process to hear Canadian citizens' and politician's opinions and suggestions to the updates taking place. It closes on March 31st, 2014. There has never been a better chance to have your and your local council's voice heard. Your comments have a major effect as we witnessed with the recent Toronto decisions. Please take 5 minutes and send your comments in HERE. Please share this page widely.
The much anticipated and conflicted RSC (Royal Society of Canada)'s review of Safety Code 6 is scheduled to be released at the end of this month. Despite some success in having the panel chair and two other conflicted panelists removed, we believe the pending release will not reflect the current independent research, and will serve the status quo. See details HERE. We have opened dialogue with Health Canada re our concerns. They have assured us that they will consult further with Canadians prior to finalizing the revised Safety Code 6. This is a step forward as we now believe the RSC review is not necessarily going to solely dictate the update to Safety Code 6.
We will be in touch more frequently over the weeks to come with updates and requests for your comments. Stay tuned.. As always thank you for your continued interest and support as we work to change Safety Code 6.
