1) Phonegate, which exposed the fact that 250 makes of cell phones were emitting levels of microwave radiation that exceeded by many times the French allowable limit, resulted in the EU government protecting the telecoms. Testing information can now be kept completely secret. The public no longer will be allowed to know how dangerous their cell phones are.

Opinion “The Phonegate scandal prey to business secrecy” published by Mediapart
« Marc Arazi and Jérôme Karsenti denounce the entry into force of the confidentiality clause of the European directive which allows « the manufacturers of mobile devices to benefit from total confidentiality for products they will place on the European market that may be a risk to human health ».
12 JUNE 2018 will remain a sad date for all citizens who for a number of weeks have been protesting against the control of the business world over public health and environmental violations denounced by many media representatives and whistleblowers.
Telephony manufacturers in particular will soon be completely protected to produce and sell phones whose harmfulness can no longer be denounced. »
2) In response to the secrecy law in France, Dr. Arazi is starting a campaign for action, including establishment of an independent committee of experts, plus lawyers and jurists to fight, asking for people to sign a petition and donating if you can. This is an international effort and could have results that could help us here in Canada. I hope you will consider signing (and donation, if you can).
Support PhoneGate Alert by signing our petition and making a donation
« After years of intensive lobbying in the European institutions, the biggest multinational mobile telecommunications companies have achieved their ultimate goal: to prevent NGOs like ours from investigating the toxicity of their products and revealing their disastrous effects on the human health of citizens who are the primary victims…
The aim of the telephony industry lobby is clear: to ensure by all means at their disposal that the Phonegate scandal will never be known to the general public. And for that, the industrialists have an unstoppable weapon: the direct ownership or control of most of the major media.
But thanks to you, and the committed citizens of many countries who stand by our side, we will resist!…
We are assembling a team of specialized lawyers and jurists to identify the judicial means to launch legal actions on a large scale in France, Europe and internationally, in order to force the public authorities to act. We are also launching group actions to enable each affected consumer to be heard and have his or her damages remedied.
We are one of the rare associations to fight, in a free and independent way, with no financial or corporate interests, to ensure the defense of citizens and not to cede to the power of big multinationals which decide that they can make the rules and favor the dominance of their devices over our health and that of our children – and this without being accountable to anyone, protected by regulations made to measure. »
3) There is a real push across North America, and in other areas around the world, for 5G, just as it has been for smeters. Combined, they will blanket us with EMR smog, making it virtually impossible to escape. Industry is fighting to have any and all regulations removed to make installation of microcells easier and faster. Our health, security, and privacy are being threatened as never before. I believe that until the World Health Organization takes action based on the most recent science, health problems will be denied by Health Canada and provincial health authorities, using Safety Code 6 as their justification. But lawsuits will happen.

“Every day more warnings about cell phone and wireless WiFi radiation exposure are being reported – for kids and everyone else by a variety of sources. In fact, cell phone manufacturers have also issued warnings to shareholders – not customers – that they may eventually be held liable for the harm they have caused.”
4) Despite warnings by intelligence agencies for many years, many telecom companies in theUSA have been using Huawei equipment because it is good and it is cheap. The fear is that China is willing to play a long-term game, waiting patiently until it has all the pieces in place, before doing something drastic.
Huawei is in deep with Telus, as partners in the 5G infrastructure The transmitters outside our homes were built in China, by Huawei and were installed here in BC with the support of Huawei.
Editor’s Corner—Here are the U.S. wireless carriers currently using Huawei equipment
“As a group of lawmakers reportedly prepares to voice concerns about how the proposed merger of Sprint and T-Mobile might be affected by China’s Huawei, there’s something they should know: Huawei already commands a substantial business among a range of smaller U.S. wireless carriers….
The fact that more than half a dozen smaller wireless operators across the United States are currently using Huawei equipment is important because a group of lawmakers in the U.S. House is reportedly preparing a letter related to the proposed merger of Sprint and T-Mobile. As noted by Bloomberg, the lawmakers are worried that Sprint’s parent, SoftBank, has ties to China’s Huawei.
“The Sprint, T-Mobile merger would increase telecommunications risks associated with third-party foreign entities, including Huawei, being utilized in the development of U.S. 5G infrastructure,” the letter read.”
5) Our Minister of Health, Adrian Dix, and our Public Health Officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry (who replaced Perry Kendall in every way) continue to ignore evidence and hide behind Safety Code 6. Please see Letters below.

Subject: Re: Ministry of Health Response – 1116055
I am not interested in reading about industry-sponsored proof of its safety. Do you remember when the tobacco industry told us their products were safe and government agencies who were intended to protect us also told us their product was safe?
You may not be old enough to remember how tobacco science worked: the tobacco industry hired ‘scientists’ to reach the safety conclusions the industry was interested in quoting. It was the INDEPENDENT scientists who were able to prove the health risks we were taking when we smoked. (And yes, I did for a few years!)
If our governmental agencies, mandated to protect us, are going to do their jobs, they need to rely on INDEPENDENT scientists, not ‘scientists’ hired by the industry; if our government is more interested in promoting and protecting the industry, using industry ‘scientists’ is quite acceptable. Rather than relying on “weight of evidence”, “accuracy of evidence” should be relied on.
Industries from many sectors of our economy get approval for their products just because our agencies believe industry science. How many drugs have been withdrawn after approval? How many pesticides and chemicals have been withdrawn? How many paint products have been withdrawn? How many, how many, how many…
I’m sorry that you are not able to provide any reassurance. I’m not sure who needs to awaken you, other bureaucrats and our politicians; they all seem to be completely under the control of Big Industry. It is a very sad state of affairs that we find ourselves in!

Thank you for your email of June 9, 2018, to the Honourable Adrian Dix, Minister of Health regarding Heath Canada’s Safety Code 6. Your email has been forwarded to me and I am pleased to respond on his behalf.
Information developed by the Ministry of Health, BC Center for Disease Control and the Office of the Provincial Health Officer related to electromagnetic fields can be found at https://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/health/keeping-bc-healthy-safe/radiation/electromagnetic-fields.
As outlined in Health Canada’s Fact Sheet on Safety Code 6, the limits provided in this guideline take into account all peer-reviewed scientific studies and consider many different potential health effects including thermal, non-thermal and biological effects. As well, the limits provided in Safety Code 6 incorporate a large safety margin to provide protection to all Canadians including children and people with electro hypersensitivity disorder. Scientists within Health Canada and the Ministry of Health continue to monitor scientific information on an ongoing basis and regularly review the guidelines of Safety Code 6 so that it reflects the most current understanding of this topic.
The safety limits provided in Safety Code 6 are based on current science-based knowledge of safe exposure levels for the protection of all Canadians. These limits are consistent with other jurisdictions around the world, including the European Union, New Zealand, Japan, Australia and the United States.
Again, I would like to thank you for taking time to write to us about your concerns.

Dear Minister Dix and Dr. Henry,
Yet again, I have read the misinformation provided by the Ministry of Health, and other information by someone who considers himself an informed member of the public.
When will those intended to protect us learn to recognize the difference between real, independent, science and ‘tobacco’ science? Shouldn’t you, at least, begin to ask the questions posed in the second paragraph below? When will you look beyond the thermal effects of Safety Code 6 or establish a new code that addresses the non-thermal effects of electromagnetic radiation?
If it is true that ISED does not set exposure limits, why are you implying that it does?
If you are aware of the NTP report, can you not find independent scientists or scientists who are NOT related to or funded by the industry, to verify the NTP results? Do you not owe it, not only to the health of the citizens you serve, but to the cost of the health care system that the province provides? Glioblastomas, schwannomas, other cancers and chronic health conditions reputed to be caused or affected by this technology are all very costly to treat! (And isn’t it curious that Lloyd’s of London will not cover issues related to this technology!
