1) A very sad letter from a mother to the FCC asking for vigilance so that other mothers don’t have to go through the tragedy she has. This is a letter that everyone in a position with influence regarding RF, EMF, microwaves, 5G should read.

2) As we write to various agencies, such as Health Canada, it is likely that we will be told that one of the most important studies ever done – the NTP $25 million, 10-year study that showed increases in brain and heart tumors – is flawed. A well-known, long-time industry-paid “researcher”, Maria Feychting has begun a rumor that the study was improperly done. Dr. Louis Slesin investigated the rumor and has found that it is yet another attempt to undermine a study that was considered by many as crucial. Even the American Cancer Society, which has long refused to acknowledge harm from microwave radiation, said that this was a “game changer”. Feychting has neglected/refused to report her funding by the telecoms in many studies and agencies in which she has participated. Funding by telecoms?? No conflict of interest according to her.
The Anatomy of a Rumor – Karolinska’s Maria Feychting Cites Pathology Bias To Discredit NTP RF Cancer Study
“A possible explanation for the omission is the mention on the COSMOS Web site of a “firewall” between the telecoms and the Karolinska Institute. What this means is hard to decipher since it is no secret that the telecoms are helping to pay for Feychting’s work. She knows it. Telia knows it. The Karolinska knows it. They all know the money tap is turned on and could be easily turned off. Yet, no one suggests that there may be a funding bias —or a rumor bias.
On its Web pages, ICNIRP states that it is free of “vested interests,” and that ICNIRP members “cannot be employed by industry.””
3) Below, in Letters, is what I consider a shameful response from the Minister of Social Development and Poverty Reduction. Janis Hoffmann wrote him, as Minster of Poverty Reduction, re. the 50 pages of complaints about the increase in power bills after the smeter was forced on people, and he responds that natural gas (e.g. fracking???) is the way to go. Heartless, IMHO.
His email, should you wish to respond, is:
4) CTV had a segment on smartphones the other night about a Korean study that showed changes in brains in teens who were considered addicted.
Smartphone addiction creates chemical imbalances in brain
“New research finds that young people who become addicted to smartphones and the internet actually develop chemistry imbalances in their brains.
Researchers from Korea University in Seoul, South Korea, conducted a small study on 10 teen girls and 9 boys who had all been diagnosed with internet or smartphone addiction. Their average age was 15.5 years old.”

British Columbia’s government is in the process of creating a roadmap for the future of the province’s energy that will drive innovation, expand energy-efficiency and conservation programs, generate new energy responsibly and sustainably, and create lasting good jobs across the province. The natural gas sector has an important role to play in this future.
We know the growth and diversification of the natural gas sector strengthens economic prospects for local businesses and creates partnership opportunities for First Nations communities. As part of our commitment to reconciliation, First Nations will continue to partner with our government and industry as we work together to achieve common goals, keeping operations safe and responsible.
Our government looks forward to supporting the natural gas sector moving forward, and the opportunities it offers people across British Columbia. The industry is a major economic contributor and are evaluating how government best supports the industry’s growth while concurrently respecting our commitment to indigenous partnerships and the environment.
Thank you for taking the time to write.

Subject: I cry every day as I have my hands tied, with this dilemma
Premier John Horgan,
As an NDP supporter I believe this government “the peoples party” can, “make life better and help families get ahead—guided by the values of help and hope, respect and dignity, justice, equality, and fairness.”
Starting back in 2012, I have been volunteering my time to the Coalition to Stop Smart Meters BC, providing information and support to the public about the mandatory installation of Smart Meters on our homes. I received 100’s of letters pleading for someone, anyone, to listen to their stories about the outrageous bills that BC Hydro was forcing hard working citizens to pay since the installation of the Smart Meter Program. These complaints were about the defective Smart Meters running fast and causing huge increases when compared to the previous years using the analog meter.
I submitted 50 pages of just some of the letters that I had collected in a short period of time back in 2012/13 only to have them fall on the deaf ears of the Liberal Government who threatened these people with disconnections if they refused to pay. These people gave up any hope of anyone listening to their pleas for help.
Stories of the mother on a disability pension with a young daughter and having to choose between food and paying her Hydro Bill. About the single mom with a new-born baby shivering because she was not able to heat her house because she was unable to pay her Hydro Bill.
How about the old age pensioner who worked hard all their life and is now in their ‘Golden Retirement Years’ huddled under a blanket in the corner of the living room with a lit candle just trying to survive?
Have you ever had to choose between heating your home and feeding your children? Please take time to read these stories http://www.stopsmartmetersbc.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/My-hydro-bills-are-shocking.pdf and hope that none of them are from friends or family that you know, or perhaps these will be the stories that will be told by your friends and family in the future.
The taxpayers should not be expected to bear the burden of the Smart Meter Program that was set up by the previous government to line the pockets of their corporate friends.
We need an independent investigation into this program and the public is counting on the NDP’s promise to make the citizens of BC’s life more affordable while improving the services we count on as essential.
Director, Coalition to Stop Smart Meters
