Citizens for Safe Technology
Empowering the public to protect children
and nature from unsafe wireless technologies.
Wi-Fi / Wireless Devices
Wi-Fi (Wireless Fidelity) includes any device that transmits and receives information wirelessly. This includes cell phones, portable phones, iPhones, Bluetooth, baby monitors, iPads and tablets, Wii games and countless other innovations that produce RF and EMF radiation.

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:
Public Health Consequences of Cell Phone and Wireless Technologies are Begging for Society's Attention
"Drunk on Wireless: Public Health Consequences of Cell Phone and Wireless Technologies are Begging for Society's Attention"
Presented at the Left Forum 2016 in New York City, featuring:
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."
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."

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 . . .
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.

"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.
