An overview of the Wi-Fi issue, and some simple common sense strategies to safeguard children in school
The Canadian Teachers' Federation represents 200 000 teachers across Canada and they have put out a new Brief on the Safety of Wi-Fi in Schools that we need to be aware of.
Comprehensive and Informative Powerpoint by James G. (Jerry) Flynn
"If only the news media would allow you to know the truth about wireless radiation!"
James G. ("Jerry") Flynn's BIO
Retired Canadian Armed Forces Captain. Spent 22 of 26+ years' service in Signals Intelligence (SIGINT), Electronic Warfare (EW) and Radio Warfare (RW):
POWERPOINT for community cell tower awareness
45 slides for presentation to community organizations, businesses, councils, and citizens.
". . . Best Siting Practises to Provide a Safe Environment for All
Designate the CSRD as a Sensitive Community Area in its entirety, including Crown Lands, and apply a set of rules for all proponents to follow which requires democratically organized public meeting consultations and limitation of power density exposure for all antennae proposals and installations, regardless of height or size, including but not limited to stealth application, any and all modifications, free standing, building mounted, utility pole mounted, range extenders, collector units and micro and mini cells.
Require notification by regular mail letters, mail drop notices, posted notices, newspaper notices for all of the above within 500 meter radius regardless of height or industry. Crown Land applications to be posted in local newspapers and posted notices in the general area. Automatic notification of all new antennae to local special interest groups.
Federal change Feb 2014 allows for public consultation regardless of height, including cell antennae under 15 meters.
Endorse a Prudent Avoidance Policy for Cell Tower and Antennae Siting
Maintain a distance of 500 meters from living and working areas for new cell towers and antennae. mmmmmIdentify and exclude areas and structures which house or host the most at risk in community, being children, pregnant mothers, elderly and immune compromised:
1. Childcare facilities, schools and colleges
3. Recreation Centres
4. Elderly care homes
5. Recreational parks and playcentres
Olle Johansson at the Open Mind Conference 2014, Copenhagen.
"Health effects of electromagnetic fields" Olle Johansson is associate professor at the Experimental Dermatology Unit, Department of Neuroscience, Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden.
"He is a leading authority in the field of EMF radiation and health effects. He has also been a professor in basic and clinical neuroscience at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm.
"He has published more than 650 original articles, reviews, book chapters and conference reports within the field of basic and applied neuroscience, dermatoscience and health effects of electromagnetic fields.
"His studies have been widely recognised in the media, including newspapers, radio and TV, as well as on the Internet, both nationally and internationally. He has on-going international scientific collaborations with e.g. Japan, Brazil, South Africa, Serbia, Germany, the UK and the USA.
"Olle Johansson's presentation covers the historic background of electricity and electromagnetic fields, how suspicions arose early on concerning fields and signals producing negative health effects and how this led to today's global public discussion about the subject. It will also touch upon the functional impairment electro hypersensitivity.
"The lecture will go into depth about the scientific research results regarding the health effects of electromagnetic fields and the urgent need for independent research projects that need to be initiated to ensure our public health.
"These projects should be entirely independent of all types of commercial interests as public health cannot have a price-tag. This is the responsibility of the democratically elected body of every country.
"The body of evidence on EMF requires a new approach to protection of public health; the growth and development of the fetus, and of children; and argues for strong preventative actions. These conclusions are built upon prior scientific and public health reports documenting the following:
1) Low-intensity (non-thermal) bioeffects and adverse health effects are demonstrated at levels significantly below existing exposure standards.
2) ICNIRP and IEEE/FCC public safety limits are inadequate and obsolete with respect to prolonged, low-intensity exposures.
3) New, biologically-based public exposure standards are urgently needed to protect public health world-wide.
4) It is not in the public interest to wait.

Worst Threat to Health, Personal Privacy, Democracy and National Security in Canada's History
The Worst Threat to our Health, Personal Privacy, Democracy and National Security in Canada's Entire History (updated May, 2014)
Jerry Flynn is a retired Canadian Military Officer. He has 22 years' experience in Canada's and NATO's army electronic warfare units, and he presents overwhelming evidence that supports his belief that the proliferation of devices such as smart meters, Wi-Fi, cell towers and cell phones, baby monitors . . . is both negligent and highly dangerous, especially to our new and future generations.
Health Canada and Industry Canada DO NOT protect you against non-thermal radio frequency radiation emitted by all of today's wireless devices.

Citizens For Safe Technology
"Wi-Fi: Is It Safe?"
Citizens for Safe Technology is a not-for-profit educational society made up of parents, grandparents, teachers, business professionals, scientists, politicians and lawyers concerned about the exponential increase in public exposure to harmful wireless technologies.
We believe a profound urgency exists to protect the unsuspecting public, especially children, youth and pregnant mothers from unsafe wireless technologies.
