$225 million gov't funds allocated to subsidize companies expanding high speed accessibility in Canada. In the beginning of the report it mentions concerns about health effects as being environmental effects, but later in the report mentions equipment disposal as the environmental effect.
This is a link to the microwave hearings that were held on Tuesday in Ottawa. The music at the intro has been removed, you can fast forward and rewind it - and you can download it to listen in an ipod.
This is an excellent video on the dangers and health risks of installing Wi-Fi in schools. Kids (YES KIDS) describing many of the same symptoms I and others who are sensitive experience when exposed to Wi-Fi, cell towers, cordless phones and other sources of electromagnetic radiation.
Let's not mince words - with the unmitigated roll-out of Wi-Fi in schools this is a monumental problem and we need to act swiftly and strongly to protect our children. We don't need peer reviewed/published studies to act on this.
We cannot wait until many our children start showing symptoms. I firmly believe that we need to raise awareness on a massive scale and do whatever it takes to have Wi-Fi removed from schools. If we need to start picketing or peacefully demonstrating on a regular basis, so be it. We the people elect our governments - unfortunately it looks like "we the people" have to do their job of protecting our children.
Citizens for Safe Technology will be hosting several public meetings in Surrey and Vancouver over the coming months to discuss the dangers and risks of cell phone use by children and also Wi-Fi in schools. We will be showing a new, award winning documentary called "Full Signal".
Please distribute this message widely and help us continue raise awareness. Judging by the tone of the hearings on microwave radiation in Ottawa this past week, our government isn't doing anything to protect us and does not want to stop the gravy train of industry revenue from these technologies. Their longer they deny the problem the greater their liability grows.
I'll leave you with one more link. There you will find several short videos of retired scientist Barry Trower talking about Wi-Fi in schools. Barry worked for the British military intelligence in microwave and stealth warfare. Barry reported a week ago in a radio interview that France is spending 174 million euros pulling Wi-Fi out of all its schools. I have been in touch with Barry's assistant and she is sending me some info to confirm this.

Subject: Email From Former Kerrisdale Constituent Carl Katz
Dear Ms. Murray,
You may remember me from a meeting we had at your office in June 2008. My friend and colleague Milt Bowling also attended that meeting.
I brought to your attention the fact that I had become ill while living just a few blocks away from your office in Kerrisdale, specifically that I had become Electrohypersensitive living in close proximity to three buildings that have cell phone transmitters on them.
At the time I was experiencing a myriad of neurological symptoms, including disturbed sleep, constant tinnitus, headaches, warmth and tingling in my extremities, problems with memory and fatigue just to name a few. I may have even related how my family doctor told me that he had another patient who was experiencing the same symptoms when in close proximity to cell towers and other wireless technologies. I would assert that there are many more people, estimated at between 5% and 20% of the population, experiencing these symptoms. They likely have no idea what is causing their distress.
Last November (2009) after a lengthy housing search, I moved to a home on acreage in South Surrey. Having distance from cell phone transmitters, Wi-Fi and cordless phones and also taking part in a health intervention program that treats Electrohypersensitivity has had a significant positive impact on my health.
I also may have mentioned that in January 2008, I was diagnosed with what appeared to be a benign brain tumor. Thankfully, subsequent MRI's have shown no growth or change.
Fast forward to May 2010: We now find that children in schools with Wi-Fi are experiencing and self reporting symptoms of Electrohypersensitivity as witnessed in this video:
I understand that you are part of a committee taking part in hearings this past week on the effects of microwave radiation. I remember you mentioning in June 2008 that from your perspective, my reporting of this information was anecdotal and that in your words it would take large numbers of people - 40,000 - as many as those in a typical riding such as Vancouver Quadra, to have enough weight to have the government sit up and take this issue seriously.
At this point in time, I am almost two years farther along in my work and research on this issue. From my perspective, it is clear that there is no mass hysteria or collective psychosomatic phenomenon going on here - there are simply too many of us who have, independently of each other, reported the same constellation of health problems and symptoms. People are getting sick - from cell towers, cell phones, Wi-Fi, cordless phones and still we have no demonstration of action from government showing that they are truly taking this monumental problem seriously.
If government was taking this issue seriously:
- We would see independent health studies in neighborhoods such as Kerrisdale or the West End of downtown comparatively measuring the health of residents living close to towers with those not living around the technology.
- We would see independent health studies on the effects of wireless technologies on brainwaves (EEG), heart rate and other biological processes rather than technical studies that confirm what we already know - that radiation levels from cell towers and Wi-Fi don't exceed Safety Code Six guidelines.
- We would see family doctors engaging in learning how to diagnose and treat Electrohypersensitivity and speaking up about this issue rather than remaining silent.
My ability to earn a living has been severely impacted since being diagnosed as Electrohypersensitive and I am only now starting to figure out how get my income levels back up to where they were a few years ago. I work as an I.T. Support Consultant to medium and small business - not the ideal profession if you are sensitive to wireless technologies.
My ability to parent my two children (who are now 8 and 10 years old) has also been severely impacted by exposure to wireless technologies. In September 2007, at a time when I had 50% time with Zach and Nicole, I had to give up all my time with them for a six week period ? I simply could not manage the day to day stress.
It has taken almost 2. 5 years to get back to the point where I can care for them and have close to the 50% time I had. I am truly blessed to have an empathetic co-parent (their mother). The pain my children and I experienced while we had limited time with each other was very hard on all of us. I must also mention how challenging this has been for their mother, a single parent who is also running her own business who stepped up and singlehandedly took on additional time with Zach and Nicole to allow me time to get my health in order.
I have spent tens of thousands of dollars on my health, moving, and other interventions to reduce my exposure. Like others who are Electrohypersensitive, I have had no choice but to "run for cover" to get as far as I can from the city and the dense array of microwave transmitters found there. After 18 months on an Electromagnetic Intervention Program I can now ?tolerate? time spent in the city, but often have to spend a day recovering in South Surrey after spending a day the downtown core.
Make no mistake - those of us whose health has been impacted by wireless technologies are the ?canaries in the coal mine?. There are individuals I know of across the country who simply can no longer have a career or function in society.
This knowledge and awareness has had me working tirelessly with other parents to have Wi-Fi removed from schools and I will not stop until this has been accomplished. I have serious concerns for the health of my children who are currently attending a Wi-Fi'd school in White Rock ? the stress and concern are unavoidable considering what I feel like when I am around strong Wi-Fi signals and what I know as a senior I.T. support technician who has installed at least 100 Wi-Fi networks.
I regularly hear reports on the news of "conflicting evidence" regarding the studies around wireless technologies. When one takes a discerning look at these studies, we find that those that are truly independent and not funded by industry are 80% more likely to find a correlation between ill health and exposure (Dr. Henry Lai). The only way to truly evaluate the value and quality of a study is to take a critical look at the study design. Looking at the quality and design of industry funded studies versus independently funded studies will confirm that the current independent science is conclusive and that this has been the case for several years.
The Bioinitiative report ( http://www.bioinitiative.org/ ), which has unfortunately been marginalized by the wireless industry, is a "review" of over 2000 peer reviewed, published scientific papers on the health effects and biological effects of microwave radiation from wireless technologies. The authors of the report reached their conclusions based on a review of all these papers. I would assert that the Bioinitiative report is one of the most important documents currently available on this crucial subject. The authors of the report who are public health doctors, Phd's and other scientists, volunteered their time and worked tirelessly in service to humanity.
We in dire need of leaders who will stand up and start taking action to protect us, which is one of the most important roles government plays. I respectfully realize how challenging this is - no one MP or MLA can do this alone. Dr. Keith Martin, MP for Esquimalt-Juan de Fuca has been representing the citizens of Collingwood BC on this issue for a few years. Perhaps his experience as a medical doctor has afforded him a ?birds eye? perspective on this huge problem.
I welcome the opportunity to discuss this further with you.
Please help us protect our children and ourselves.

In 1995 I bought a home in Harrison Hot Springs BC, a lake side holiday resort Village aprox 90 KM east of Vancouver. Soon after moving into that home both my wife, at the time, and I started hearing a strange buzzing sound. I would wake up at 3:20 every morning to the buzz and it would get louder over the next hour and I would feel pressure build up in my head. At time it was so hash that I had to get out of bed and hold my hands on my ears to try an stop the pain.
After about a month I traced the cause to a CBC TV broadcast tower which was 375 feet from my back door. We were taking all kinds of medication to try and get a nights sleep and nothing seemed to help. I was prescribed 4 different drugs, saw 3 different specialists, given 2 hearing exams and non could establish the cause of my illness. My hearing became affected to the point I could not use my telephone. I sent letters to Health Canada and always received the same answer stating that my illness could not be caused by the tower. I have the letters in my files.
Things got so bad that we started renting motel rooms in order to sleep and after living in that home for a year I became hyper sensitive to electro magnetic fields and we had to move. I had just started my retirement with plans of enjoying the lake and the area but I ended up having to move out into the woods away from cell towers. I found some neighbors and many other people that are living near towers and suffering what I suffered and some thing must be done make our atmosphere livable. For more information please contact .

Internationaler Appell von Würzburg
Auf Einladung der ?European Academy for Environmental Medicine EUROPAEM? trafen sich vom 23.04. ? 25.04.2010 in Würzburg namhafte nationale und internationale Wissenschaftler der Gebiete Umweltmedizin, Toxikologie, Immunologie, Neurologie und Humangenetik, praktizierende Ärzte und Zahnärzte, Angehörige anderer Heilberufe sowie Vertreter von Patienteninitiativen unter dem Motto ?Wissenschaft trifft Praxis? zu einem internationalen Ärztekongress. Dieser beschäftigte sich speziell mit dem Thema der Neuro-Endokrino-Immunologie und ihrer Bedeutung für die Umweltmedizin. Die Teilnehmer stellten mit großer Sorge die Zunahme chronischer Multisystemerkrankungen (CMI) fest, zu denen neben den Krankheitsbildern Multiple Chemikalien Sensitivität (MCS), Chronisches Erschöpfungssyndrom (CFS) und Fibromyalgiesyndrom (FMS) auch Herz-Kreislauf-Erkrankungen, metabolisches Syndrom, neurodegenerative Krankheiten, die Gruppe der Autoimmunopathien und Krebs, zählen.
Auf dem Kongress konnte in eindrucksvoller Weise unter Beweis gestellt werden, dass diesen chronischen Krankheiten ähnliche Pathomechanismen zu Grunde liegen. Ihnen gemeinsam sind chronische Entzündungsprozesse, die von Umwelteinflüssen chemischer (Schadstoffe), biologischer (z.B. Infektionserreger) und physikalischer (z.B. elektromagnetische Felder EMF) Art ausgelöst werden. Chronische Erkrankungen bedingen Langzeitpatienten, deren medizinische Betreuung immer höhere Kosten verursacht. Dies führt häufig dazu, dass Betroffene sozial ausgegrenzt werden. Vor dem erschreckenden Hintergrund der aus allen Ländern Europas gemeldeten wachsenden finanziellen Engpässe, insbesondere im öffentlichen Gesundheitswesen, muss eine weitere Zunahme der chronischen Erkrankungen den bereits im Gang befindlichen Kollaps der nationalen Gesundheitsdienste und der Krankenversicherungen in Europa beschleunigen. Abhilfe verspricht hier nur ein Wechsel der Prioritäten von einer heute zu einseitig symptomatisch ausgerichteten Medizin hin zur kausal ausgerichteten kostensparenden Primärprävention.
Die Kongressteilnehmer richten einen dringlichen Appell an die Europäischen Umwelt- und Gesundheitsminister, an die europäische Kommission, an die Europäischen Parlamentarier, an die nationalen Regierungen sowie an die Vorstände der Sozial- und Privatversicherungen, diesen Erkenntnissen und Entwicklungen die unverzichtbare Beachtung zu schenken. Dies bedeutet mehr Gewichtung und finanzielle Investitionen in Primärprävention, Vorsorge und möglichst frühzeitige Erkennung und Diagnostik dieser chronischen, letztlich Umwelt assoziierten Krankheiten zu tätigen. Dies bedeutet generell auch auf europäischer Ebene eine uneingeschränkte Wahrnehmung der Forschungsergebnisse der praktizierenden Umweltmedizin und ihre Integration in die universitäre Forschung und Lehre. Die Europäischen Regierungen werden aufgefordert, die ratifizierten Beschlüsse der 4. Ministeriellen Konferenz der Umwelt- und Gesundheitsminister in Budapest, 2004, endlich in die Tat umzusetzen. Dieser Appell wurde einstimmig vom Plenum des Kongresses angenommen.

"The BRAG" Antenna Ranking of Schools' GradesSchool Children's Exposure to Cell Antennas in U.S. State Capitols & Washington, D.C. - Report recommends a setback of 1,500 feet for wireless infrastructure near schools
April 21, 2010, Washington, D.C. A new report, "The BRAG" Antenna Ranking of Schools' ("BRAG? Ranking"), will be unveiled next Wednesday by Professor Magda Havas, PhD of Trent University, Canada, along with Jim Turner, Esq., Chairman of Citizens for Health, Camilla Rees, Founder of ElectromagneticHealth.org, Janet Newton, President of the EMR Policy Institute, The Electro Sensitive Society, and Christine Hoch, Executive Director of Moms for Safe Wireless. The BRAG Antenna Ranking of Schools report will be introduced in a Media Teleconference on Wednesday, April 28th at 2:30 p.m. Eastern. RSVP to Emily@electromagnetichealth.org for dial-in instructions.
The BRAG Ranking is the result of a multi-year study of school children's potential exposure to cell phone antennas and base stations in U.S. state capitols prepared by Dr. Havas and students at Trent University, Canada. Exposure metrics for approximately 6,000 public and private schools were assessed. A composite grade was generated for each school based on 1) how close the nearest antenna was to the school, 2) how many antennas were located within 0.25 miles or approximately 400 meters (the distance within which scientific research documents mental, emotional and physical symptoms in adults), and 3) within 0.6 miles, or approximately 1 kilometer, from the school.
Grades, and rankings, for individual schools, as well as a comparative ranking of state capitols, and the full 173-page BRAG Antenna Ranking of Schools report, are available on an embargoed basis at http://files.me.com/magda.havas/jz62ck .
Theembargo will lift on Wednesday, April 28th at 10:00 a.m. Eastern. E-mail Emily@ElectromagneticHealth.org for a password to view the BRAG report.
Health Canada is bought and paid for by the industries they "monitor". If you want to follow the money, check out the petition my husband and I wrote and submitted to the auditor general of Canada. It can be found at: http://www.oag-bvg.gc.ca/internet/English/pet_255_e_31626.html . In response no one from Health Canada challenged our charges and, in fact, we were told that funding source does not affect results! I followed up with several ethics commissions in the government charging bias and collusion, and was told that so long as the people reported their associations with industry there was no conflict in interest, even though they were employed by Health Canada. So now you know who funds Health Canada. Unfortunately this most likely is true of all aspects and sections of the department -- I suggest you read Shiv Chopra's book, "Corrupt to the Core."
Looking into Deltout who did the study, not only is she affiliated with the Danish Cancer Society (which may be just as corrupt as the US and Canadian arm of that Society) but she works closely with Daniel Krewski, McBride, and that bunch of rascals. Perhaps this explains her results!

New Report Recommends FCC Require Minimum 1,500 Feet Setbacks for Wireless Infrastructure near Schools
Urgent - please submit written testimony so that the committee have a lot of letters from people suffering from the effects of EMR. I expect if letters were sent by this Thursday April 22 (tomorrow) they might still accept them.
The person to send the email letters to is Christine Holke David and her email address is: HolkeC@parl.gc.ca . They need to translate all testimony into French (or from French into English) hence the time factor.
Background Info: The House of Commons Standing Committee on Health (HESA) is having two days of meetings on the health effects of radio frequency radiation in Ottawa (April 27 and 29). They are accepting testimony from people who are sensitive, doctors, scientists, etc. Both sides are going to be represented . . . those who think this is a non-issue (Wireless industry, Health Canada, Industry Canada and their experts) and those who believe this is a serious health issue.
We have a chance to educate this committee and they might do something about it as they are an overseer of Health Canada.
Those who do decide to submit something could they also send me a copy in either language as we can have it translated by google.
Hier eine Zusammenfassung eines ausführlichen Artikels zu WLAN an Schulen.
Ein Fachartikel von Dr. Klaus Scheler, Physikdozent an der PH Heidelberg
-Immer mehr Schulen und Schulträger setzen WLAN-Netze ein: So haben rund 120 bundesdeutsche Schulen die WLAN- Lösungen von 3Com bereits im Einsatz, Tendenz steigend.
In der Stadt Unna sind seit 2005 alle Schulen mit WLAN- Netzen ausgerüstet, von der Grundschule ¸über Sonderschulen bis zu Gymnasien.
Die immer wieder genannten Vorteile sind:
WLAN - Komponenten ermöglichen digital gestütztes Lernen jederzeit und an jedem Ort. über WLAN - Komponenten sind alle Endgeräte in einem Raum mit dem Schulnetzwerk verbunden, wodurch eine aufwendige Verkabelung der einzelnen Endgeräte¸ überflüssig wird.
Nach einer gründlichen Diskussion der Studienlage, grafisch gut aufgearbeitet, kommt Dr. Scheler zu dem Schluss: -Damit werden für den Schüler erhebliche Gesundheitsrisiken relevant!
Wie bereits mehrere Studien gezeigt haben, kann sich diese Belastung in vielerlei Symptomen zeigen wie Kopfschmerzen, Tagesmüdigkeit, verringerte Konzentrations- und Problem- lesefähigkeit, geringere Gedächtnisfunktion u. a. (Hug u.a., 2006).
Aber auch Lehrerinnen und Lehrer beobachten heutzutage zunehmend, dass viele Schüler sich überhaupt nicht mehr konzentrieren können, wenn eine Funkbelastung vorhanden ist. Ihre verminderte Leistungsfähigkeit kann erhebliche Auswirkungen auf ihre Noten, ihre Berufswahl und ihre weitere Laufbahn haben.
Dazu kommt, dass bei dauerhafter Bestrahlung diese Symptome chronisch werden und die Gesundheit der Schüler erheblich beeinträchtigen können. Bei der Nutzung von WLAN-Netzen müssen also ggf. auftretende Beschwerden der Schüler sehr ernst genommen werden.
Als Ursache darf die WLAN-Strahlung nicht ausgeschlossen werden.
Fazit: Schulen sollten im Sinne eines vorsorgenden Gesundheitsschutzes bei der Einrichtung von Internet-Zugängen unbedingt auf WLAN-Netze verzichten und kabelgebundene Lösungen nutzen.

Schulen: WLAN-Netze oder Alternativen einrichten?
Sollen Schulen WLAN-Netze einrichten oder Alternativen bevorzugen?
Schulen stehen zunehmend vor der Entscheidung: Sollen sie WLAN-Netze einrichten oder kabelgebundene Alternativen bevorzugen? Können sie die Zunahme der Mobilfunkstrahlung durch WLAN-Netze vernachlässigen oder gibt es Anlass zur Sorge wegen möglicher Gesundheitsrisiken?
Der folgende Artikel gibt hierzu klare Anhaltspunkte und wesentliches Hintergrundwissen, so dass diese Frage nach derzeitigem wissenschaftlichen Kenntnisstand eindeutig beantwortet werden kann: Schülern werden durch WLAN-Netze erhebliche gesundheitliche Risiken zugemutet, die oft schon nach kurzer Zeit ihre Konzentration- und Leistungsfähigkeit deutlich herabsetzen, was erhebliche Auswirkungen auf ihre Noten, ihre Berufswahl und letztlich ihre weitere Laufbahn haben kann. Bei dauerhafter Bestrahlung können im Laufe der Zeit weitere Symptome auftreten und die Gesundheit der Schüler nachhaltig beeinträchtigen.
Schulen sollten daher im Sinne eines vorsorgenden Gesundheitsschutzes bei der Einrichtung von Internet-Zugängen unbedingt auf WLAN-Netze verzichten und kabelgebundene Lösungen nutzen.

Besides destruction of a cell tower, the article says that France is spending 172 million euros pulling Wi-Fi out of schools and that in 8 countries around the world, cell phones sales to youth under 16 has been banned.
Worry not about the looks,but be very worried of the health effects!! Read the science and see what the the RF, radio fields are doing to our health.There are cancer clutters around cell towers in Europe, so maybe,just maybe this is where all our cancer is coming from??

Cancer patient, 13, searches for root cause of his leukaemia
A 13-year-old from Krugersdorp is doing a school science project on whether electromagnetic radiation (EMR) caused his leukaemia.
Dominique Charlebois decided on the topic of his entry into the Eskom Expo for Young Scientists after reading research that included the work of Barrie Trower, a former British military scientist currently visiting South Africa to spread awareness about the dangers of EMR.
"I wanted to know what caused my cancer. The doctors said it was a mystery," said Dominique.
In the 1970s, Trower was responsible for questioning spies captured during the Cold War.
"Before microwaves were used for cellphones, they were used as stealth weapons. The Soviet Union would beam microwaves into the US embassy to make people ill. You become confused, tired, depressed and suicidal," he said.
Seven years ago, a survey of childhood cancers was done in England, France and Spain.
"They found 130 clusters of roughly 11 children with cancer around each transmitter. By 2006 we had in excess of 200 childhood cancer clusters around transmitters, which is more than 2 000 children. Nearly all the children died," Trower said.
Dominique was diagnosed in December. Two months earlier, a friend and classmate who lived in the adjacent housing complex lost a four-year cancer battle. There are four transmitters in the neighbourhood.
Three are within a 2km radius of Dominique's house, and one is next to his school, 3km away from the house.
Measurements taken inside the house and at the school on Saturday revealed radiation levels to be much lower than the guidelines used by industry.
The problem, according to Trower, is that these ICNIRP (International Commission on Non-Ionising Radiation Protection) guidelines, which are advocated by the World Health Organisation, are being abused by industry.
The guidelines set a maximum which is a short-term dose that humans shouldn't be exposed to for longer than six minutes. But when wireless technology operators are challenged on health risks, they defend themselves by saying they emit radiation levels lower than the maximum.
Radiation levels were found to be particularly high in Dominique's bedroom. Trower says the most harmful time to be exposed to radiation is while sleeping. Children are particularly vulnerable because their immune systems are not yet fully developed.
Trower advised Dominique to get rid of his cellphone and to stop playing with technology that uses WiFi.
Dominique is about to undergo the last phase of chemotherapy.
"They push as much chemo into your body as you can handle. I'm scared," he said.
On days when he feels well enough, he researches for his project.
"PG&E Smart Meter Invasion of Privacy " PG&E has installed 5 million meters. They plan to install 3million more. Customers are complaining about sky rocketing bills. There is a budding rebellion among customers. Mark Dieteman put his old meter under lock and key, trying to lock out the meters. He said it is an invasion of his privacy. They allow the meters to remotely read a customer's usage every hour. In the future that will allow homeowners to monitor their usage. Dieteman says it allows PG&E to come into your home any time and know what appliances you are using them, when, how. It is corporate intrusion on your life. Attorney Lee Tien with the EFF: The privacy of the home is the most important value. It could tell the govt, the police what's going on in your home. Inside your home is where the govt is not supposed to intrude w/o a warrant. When this data is flowing freely, this data gets outside this protected boundary and you start to have a problem.
"Vacaville Smart Meter Bill Stumps PG&E, Reporting, Anna Werner" What's going on with PG&E's new Smart Meters? A CBS 5 investigation prompted more than a hundred viewers to write in with horror stories about huge bills and excessive energy usage. Pacific Gas & Electric has insisted there are reasons that explain the complaints away. But CBS 5 has now found a case they can't explain. After CBS 5's investigation, PG&E admitted that at least one new Smart Gas Meter may have been improperly installed. But we were told not a single electric meter had a problem, until now. ... SNIP
December 03, 2009 - New Labour want to force consumers to have smart meters for their electricity. So that's a few thousand meter readers on the employment scrap heap, instead claiming the dole. Meanwhile this wheeze will allow the government to say "You've used too much electric today, we're cutting you off."
"They want to put them in all 26 million homes in Britain, estimate to help most households save 28 pounds / year and cost 8 billion pounds. The role of smart meters will start accelerating in 2-3 years time. One way or another, they will start impacting on all of us."
