Fire at Quinte West fire hall

“As the two men were preparing to investigate, smoke started coming out of the fuse panel, causing the smoke detector to go off.

Once outside, they discovered the hydro meter on the building had caught fire.”

2)    And, coincidentally, another potential smeter fire in Saskatoon. [https://globalnews.ca/news/1485323/saskatoon-light-power-continues-with-smart-meter-installation/]

Smart meter possibly behind Eighth Street fire

“The owner of the home tells CTV News the meter was just installed and says a neighbour saw sparks coming from the area where the meter is located just before the fire.”

3)    A very clever radio ad aimed at California Gov. Jerry Brown who now can either sign or veto the bill allowing microcells and 5G, which was approved by both bodies in the State Legislature.

4)    A non-profit group working to make our environment safer (The Environmental Working Group or EWG) has been pushing for the FCC to review its outdated, inadequate cellphone and radiation guidelines. The FCC, like Health Canada, does not have guidelines for non-ionizing radiation, the type used by all wireless devices. This from 2013 – and nothing has changed.  This shows that change must be forced to come from the top – the World Health Organization.

 

EWG’s Guide to Safer Cell Phone Use

“The FCC’s safety standards for cell phone radiation were based on studies conducted in the 1980s, These studies have long since been rendered obsolete by newer research. Yet for years the FCC refused to update or even review its standards. Instead, the federal agency simply sat on its hands while cell phones became ever more powerful and ubiquitous…

Consumers need — now more than ever — real-world, relevant data on how much radiation their phones emit under various circumstances. The FCC does not require the cell phone industry to disclose these data. One important study showing that certain networks could expose consumers to 30 to 300 times more radiation than other networks was hidden from the public until the information was dated to the point of irrelevancy.”

5)     The need for security, the potential of smart

“The possibilities afforded by intelligent systems was a recurring theme at the Digital Cities series hosted by FutureScot in association with The Sunday Times Scotland. Similarly, there was discussion around the need to ensure that devices connected to the Internet of Things (IoT), and critical national infrastructure, was secure from attack

One of the benefits of intelligent systems embedded in our homes and communities was outlined by John MacNeil, Scotland head of policy and communications at Smart Energy GB. “There is undoubtedly a significant appetite for smarter, more intuitive technology in our everyday lives. Smart meters will enable much of this to happen. For example, in the future consumers will be able to share their energy data with innovators offering them new lifestyle services.

“This could be especially true for our health and social care sectors where customer energy data is shared sensitively and responsibly to allow a relative, close friend or care service to monitor someone who is elderly or vulnerable in their home via their smart meter data, to make sure they are safe, well and warm…

“They will herald the dawn of a much more dynamic, flexible smart grid system, where energy generation is better matched to demand. Because smart meters send regular meter readings automatically, a two-way flow of information comes to life. A big part of Scotland’s energy ambition is to create economic opportunities, jobs and greater scope for innovation. The smart meter rollout opens up huge potential in areas such as smart homes and energy data.””

6)    $100 million in New York City spent on towers, probably transmitters of some sort, about which no information has been provided.

7)    Some countries, unlike Canada, are tracking brain tumors. In Denmark, the number of brain tumors and central nervous system tumors has doubled since the use of cellphones became common in the early 1990s.  Yet, the public is not being warned about usage, even with regard to children.

What’s Doubling Brain Tumors In Denmark?

The number of patients is on a steady increase since 2004-2005. Is that coincidental with the increase of smart technology, which uses microwaves to implement instant access and networks? In 1990 the rate was 827 patients, whereas in 2015 it more than doubles to 1807 patients or 2.185 times!

The rise in malignant and non-cancerous tumors is happening in younger patients, those who are more likely to be using smart technology gadgets, e.g., iPhones and Wi-Fi at school or work.”

Subject: emf & wi-fi effects

Dear Sirs & Madams:

I came across this article, which I sincerely hope you will read and take a broad perspective on this issue of the promulgation of emf technology, particularly as there is a strong lobby for 5 Gigahertz technology now.

http://www.weness.org/emfs/effects-electromagnetic-fields.html

I recently heard a Senate program, where a company is looking to install 5 G tech, which I understand to be even more intense than wi-fi, on toll bridges for automated cars, and in forests for the forest industry. No doubt there is a whole range of uses for which 5 G will be lobbied to governments.

I recall the days when cigarette smoking was prevalent in public places. Being extra sensitive, I had to endure a lot of smoke that made me ill. Whenever I travelled long distances by bus, I would get a sore throat, and catch a cold. Later, no-smoking areas were located in restaurants, but incongruously, a portion would be right next to a smoking area. It took years for laws to be enacted that provided smoke free areas in most of our society. Relief was enormous for me, when I did not have to walk out of public places and spoil our plans for outings, because of how it affected my health.

Now, I am facing the same problem, with wi-fi in particular. I have to leave restaurants after a few minutes if I feel uncomfortable in my head, and my thinking becomes distracted. This is very awkward when when we have gone out with friends and family. It’s come to the point that I choose to stay at home, rather than have to endure looking for a safe place to eat or sleep, which is close to impossible to find. How many years will it take to get “non wi-fi areas” established, as if that were possible? Or, will the well-being of people be sacrificed for the economy?

Truthfully, please let me know if there is any point in sending you these letters? If not, I can spare your time, as well as mine. I do rather hope that you will take this issue as seriously as the smoking issue needed to be taken, and not ignore negative wi-fi/emf effects, disregarded over recent years. Because I feel the electric energies, I am not convinced of statements sent to me by Government that reference Health Canada Safety Code 6, which says that cell phones and wi-fi are safe.

I am particularly worried about the world my grandchildren are growing up in.  Please tell me what you can do to create safe places (perhaps starting with schools) and what you will do to ensure that new technology does not go ahead without long-term studies that prove safety.
