No Safe Place

A letter to Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson from Olga Sheean

Olga Sheean has been able to get Orca Air to agree to have cell phones turned off when those who suffer from EHS travel on their airline. This "letter" is actually a comprehensive document that outlines the effect of wireless devices and infrastructure being launched and promoted by Vancouver City Council. The letter/presentation is extremely thorough, and worth reading.

Main themes in this document:

  • Ignored, excluded and incapacitated--citizens forced to flee 
  • Evidence of harmful effects: quick facts 
  • Scientific fact versus political spin and misinformation 
  • Physical effects of EMR 
  • The key symptoms of EHS 
  • Important landmarks on the EMF lifeline 
  • Human rights and human wrongdoings 
  • Questions for you and the government to answer 
  • A taste of what's to come: the real cost of electromagnetic radiation 
  • Scientists call for more protective measures, given increasing evidence of risk from EMFs

Royal Canadian Police Summoned on Wi-Fi Threat

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

A comprehensive talk by Jerry Flynn on the effects of EMF radiation from smart phones, wireless computers, routers and antennas, smart meters, etc. Jerry Flynn is a retired Captain in the Communications Electronics Engineering Branch of the Canadian Armed Forces.  

"RCMP, also known as "the Force" and the "Mounties," is a federal national police force that works on a contract basis with three territories, eight provinces, 190 municipalities, 184 aboriginal communities and three international airports.

"Flynn this week called on the Public Health Agency of Canada to direct RCMP "to conduct a criminal investigation into Canada's radio frequency and extremely low frequency scientific community beginning with Health Canada's radiation protection bureau."

Tech Safety Poster

Langley Student Wins Tech Safety Poster Contest

"We are extremely pleased with Charrisa Leung's painting and how she covered all the points we were looking for. This poster will create awareness for Langley Fine Art students, teachers and parents and hopefully encourage other schools to create Tech Safety poster contests of their own. Soon schools will be moving in the direction of best practices for mobile devices just as Ashland public schools have created to follow manufacturer distance recommendations." stated Susan McFee, President of Parent Advisory Council for Langley Fine Arts School. . . .

"RF may actually be a misnomer because the average person thinks of AM/FM radios when they hear the words "radio frequency" or RF energy. Cell phones, tablets and laptops sit in the microwave wireless radiation segment of the electromagnetic spectrum and it may be more accurate to call them microwave wireless radiation devices."

C4ST Response to Health Canada's Safety Code 6 Myth Buster

Canadians for Safe Technology - "Health Canada's 'myth buster' vs the Truth

"On Feb 20th, 2014 Health Canada quietly released a document entitled "Busting Myths on Safety Code 6". This attempt to instill public confidence in safety exposure levels to wireless radiation is using false and unsubstantiated claims. This was again repeated on the newly released 60 day public consultation web page posted May 16th, 2014.

"Gone are the days where the public will accept you are safe just because Health Canada says you are....Canadians and scientists want and deserve proof with an open and transparent review inclusive of the current evidence showing biological harm from wireless radiation.

"C4ST and experts from around the world have come together to provide the real facts around the specific points Health Canada addresses in their Myth Buster document. Here it is . . .
