1) “PHONEGATE ALERT” INVITED TO A CONFERENCE IN ENGLAND BY DR. MALLERY-BLYTHE
“On June 8, 2019, a commemorative conference in honour of Jenny Fry will be held in England at the initiative of “EMF aware Sussex”. On this occasion, the experts present will review scientific and medical knowledge concerning electrosensitivity, the development of new 5G technologies, communicating meters and mobile phones. We would like to thank Dr. Mallery-Blythe for her invitation, which will allow us, for the first time on English soil, to discuss the issues related to the Phonegate scandal.”

2) An amazing discovery of data gathering by and from an iPhone. Many (all??) wireless devices gather data and as more “smart” devices are entering our lives and homes, more data will be gathered and sold. With 5G and the Internet of Things, privacy could be a thing of the past. What are all of these companies doing with private data? Why are they allowed to collect it without the owners’ knowledge and permission?
It’s the middle of the night. Do you know who your iPhone is talking to?
Apple says, “What happens on your iPhone stays on your iPhone.” Our privacy experiment showed 5,400 hidden app trackers guzzled our data — in a single week.
Part of Jackson’s objection to trackers is that many feed the personal data economy, used to target us for marketing and political messaging. Facebook’s fiascos have made us all more aware of how our data can be passed along, stolen and misused — but Cambridge Analytica was just the beginning.”
3) Please see below in Letters an update from Oona McOuat re. the Salt Spring CREST meeting.
4) More good news that shows that people do have power to fight towers. This from a person who raised the issue in Coombs.
“Yesterday’s RDN Board meeting dealing with Rogers proposed C tower in Coombs resulted in Rogers’ plan being voted down by the directors (tho only a few of them participated ) meaning Rogers will have to find another site for their digital demon. One of the interveners who spoke against the tower was a Dr F [I removed the name] from the Comox Valley.”
5) Finally, an agency that will be attempting to gather data on brain tumours. I have searched for a central agency where tumours are recorded because I’ve been told that oncologists report each case, but haven’t been able to find anything that is specific. The Cancer Society lumps cancer cases, making it impossible for a layperson to see trends over time by year, by age, by type of tumour. This registry found “barriers” at the cancer registries. What is the Cancer Society’s purpose if not to accumulate data that would help researchers? Hopefully, this new registry will fill this need. But will it have any history or will data begin as of 2019? I will ask.
First Brain Tumour Registry for Canada Captures Real-World Patient Evidence
“The registry was conceived by a committee chaired by Dr. Joseph Megyesi then Chairman of the Board of Directors at Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada.3 Advocacy efforts led by Jennifer Gouchie-Terris – whose son Brandon was diagnosed with a brain tumour – focused on obtaining complete data to create evidence to support brain tumour policy and research which resulted in the passing of a Canadian House of Commons Bill M235 in February 2007.4 The Bill called for national guidelines for the surveillance of all malignant and benign (non-malignant) brain tumours, but funds were not aligned to accomplish this task. The Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) subsequently explored the gap in the collection and reporting of non-malignant brain tumour data and identified barriers to data collection within the provincial and territorial cancer registries. At the time, only three of thirteen regional registries formally collected information on non-malignant brain and CNS tumours.”
For those who are curious about what happened at yesterday‘s Trust meeting. Please also help with the action item below if possible~ Thank you!
- The Islands Trust [SSI LTC] is continuing to delay making a decision as they wait for the survey info from CREST on other possible sites.
- Gary Holman told me one of the sites CREST is/was considering is the Lion’s Hall right by Phoenix School.
- He also said the Trust had no choice but to postpone due to the “massive objection expressed on April 30 without 1 emergency service provider showing up to speak in favor of the project.” (There was disappointment in his voice.)
- We had a good turnout at yesterday‘s meeting, and several of us spoke to CREST and Antennas at the Town Hall.
MODEL ANTENNA SITING POLICY:
- The Trust referred the Trust-wide antenna siting template they are being asked to adopt (it is the policy that determines how and where antennas are placed on SSI) to our Advisory Planning Commission (APC).
- It is essential we attend the next APC meeting and help them understand this document is a cut and paste of existing ISED policy and provide suggestions for how we can create/maintain a more protective policy.
- If contact info is provided – see below – I am willing to do the latter by email as I & Chris Anderson have this work prepared.
- We need lots of us at this APC meeting.
