Port Franks Grandmother Starts 800 Km Walk to Ottawa to Protest Cell Phone Towers

Port Franks. Frustrated that Bell Canada has more power than her local government, Wendy Hoy will set off for Ottawa on foot today, to raise awareness about electro-sensitivity, something that a large number of Canadians suffer from every day.

''Cell Tower emissions are a source of involuntary exposure to a type of electro-magnetic radiation referred to as microwave radiation. And not one single Canadian has a say in whether or not you live next to a tower,'' said Hoy, a founding member of the Lakeshore Coalition opposing cell towers in an environmentally sensitive area of Lake Huron.

''An airline pilot who is now electrosensitive and cannot fly anymore has just moved here,'' says Hoy. ''Right after she got here, up go the cell towers. Where are these people supposed to live?'' In Hoy s home of Port Franks, the local Council voted to investigate the feasibility of establishing a ''white zone'' which is an area with lower radiation levels. Residents who had a face to face meeting with Industry Canada last week were advised any attempts to have areas of lower radiation would be blocked by them.

Last year the World Health Organization re-classified the type of radiation emitted by sources such as cell towers, cell phones, and wireless internet as a possible carcinogen. Globally, medical organizations are urging precaution.

''We had a majority of Council Members vote against a cell tower in our neighbourhood. We even had half the town sign a petition against it. Despite overwhelming objection, Industry Canada has the final word in whether or not Bell Mobility can go ahead with plans to blanket Lambton Shores with cell towers. Bell has more control over our lives than we do,'' said Hoy as she laced up for her 800 km walk to Ottawa.

Start: Thursday September 20, 2012 at 9 am
From: Port Franks Conservation Area, 7574 Biddulph St, Port Franks Ontario.

Can you help Wendy?

There has been very limited time for planning Wendy s walk as two large cellphone towers are being planned for the area near her home and one has just been built. This area includes the famous Pinery Provincial Park http://www.pinerypark.on.ca/ (Pinery Provincial Park contains much of the remaining Oak Savanna woodland to be found in North America. Explore this unique ecosystem, along park roads, trails, beaches or quiet reaches of the Old Ausable Channel).

Radiation from the Cell Towers risks significant environmental damage to the park ecosystem and will expose a large part of the beautiful South Coast of Lake Huron and its famous sandy beaches with powerful and harmful microwave radiation.

Wendy, who has taken a month off work for the epic walk, could do with lots of assistance over the next four weeks. Her route is not set in stone, but in general it is likely to include London, Brantford, Hamilton, Oakville, Mississauga, Toronto, Oshawa, Peterborough, Kingston, Smiths Falls and Ottawa. Other side trips may be included to meet people and groups in other locations.

Wendy has not sought help, but here are some ways that you may wish to offer assistance:
* Accommodation
* Food and refreshments
* Donation towards costs or charity
* Encouragement
* Assistance with driving in your area
* Company while walking
* Press and public notification etc
* Arrange a public information meeting
* Banners and flyers
* Use of a recreational vehicle during the walk

Update on Port Franks, Ontario Cell Tower and call to action

Last week Lambton Shores Council voted to ask MP Bev Shipley to put forward a cease and desist order for the cell tower planned at the Marina. Investigation into looking into a moratorium on any further towers in the Port was voted on as well. Both passed unanimously.

Yesterday a resident witnessed an excavator being dropped off at the planned tower site; flags were placed on the site as well last week.

We need everyone who can help to call MP Shipley to ask him to follow through on Council s request. There are no other white/beige (low radiation) zones in Canada for people who are ill to go to escape. This is an already protected area with regards to the environment; and because of the sand dunes and trees, Port Franks is already shielded from the cell towers on the land surrounding it. It s the perfect place for a ERA (electromagnetic reduced area).
