Dr Dariusz Leszczynski gives a great presentation of what 5G communications is and why we should be afraid.
Direct fiber optic connections, G-Fast technology which connects fiber optic cables to existing copper wires, strategically placed low-EMF emitting public transmitters like those piloted in Paris, France – why are telecoms choosing to put the well-being of all of us, including wildlife and plants at risk, when safe options are available?

Give me a Minute & I’ll Give you News
SALT SPRING, September 25 – The big story out of the UBCM so far this week is the BC government’s announcement that they are seeking public and municipal input on the legalization of marijuana. But there is another burning issue on the conference agenda that deserves your attention – Resolution B100 on the lack of public and local government input on the placement of microcells within 100 meters of homes, schools, and hospitals.
Please take a minute to watch this easy to digest animated short on the vote: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DzUBK2AFyLI&feature=youtu.be
Follow the lead of California’s major media who recently made a similar statewide vote on small cell placement on their streets a major news story (http://www.mercurynews.com/2017/08/31/california-bill-to-ease-permits-for-cellular-antennas-could-impact-health/).
Grand Forks councillor Beverley Tripp will be giving a presentation on Resolution B100 and microcells at 9:30am on Tuesday at the UBCM’s Small Talk Forum.
Recognize that connectivity does not have to be primarily EMF-based and does not have to continue to escalate the amount of this scientifically deemed hazardous substance to which we are all exposed.

Getting Buzzed in the Bedroom?
Municipalities Vote on Small Cells & the Right to Choose
SALT SPRING, September 16 – At the September 25-29 Union of BC Municipalities Convention in Vancouver, local governments will be voting on a resolution aimed at giving them a say in microcell placement in their communities.
Despite a substantial body of evidence (http://www.stopsmartmetersbc.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/Over-60-Studies-from-2015-Apr.2016-Reporting-Bioeffects-below-Safety-Code-6-by-C4ST-Apr.18-2016.pdf) showing wireless technology is harmful to humans and the environment, Innovation Canada is allowing microcells to be placed on neighbourhood lampposts and utility poles, and yes – even by our bedrooms – without our consent or often knowledge.
Aesthetics, property value, industry control-for-profit over the public right of way, cyber-security, safety, health, and well-being – there are many reasons for local governments and all of us to be concerned about microcells.
MOTION of Grand Forks City Council:
WHEREAS public consultation on the placement of cell towers is mandated; and
WHEREAS new technology is moving away from these large towers to microtransmitters which do not require local government or public consultation;
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the AKBLG request the UBCM petition relevant provincial and federal governments to mandate consultation with the land use authorities and the public regarding microcell transmitter siting within 100 meters of residences, schools and hospitals.
What’s all the Fuss About? (And what’s a microcell?)
Microcells are small cellular transmitters that broadcast wireless radiation 24 -7. Anywhere from 3 to 10 of them are being placed on one residential street. Wireless radiation is linked to an increased risk of cancer, as well reproductive and neurological problems – like disturbed sleep. It is conservatively defined as a 2b carcinogen, which means it is in the same category as DDT.
Out of Sight, Out of Mind?
Industry is coming up with some sneaky ways of designing (http://www.fiercewireless.com/tech/american-tower-philips-lighting-team-up-to-hide-small-cells-inside-street-lights) – or is that hiding – small cell transmitters. But that doesn’t mean their effects will not be felt.
The wireless industry would like us to believe the jury’s still out on whether wireless radiation has harmful health impacts. But thousands of peer-reviewed studies show evidence of harm. Over 180 scientists and physicians just sent out a plea for a halt to the rollout of 5G transmitters in Europe (http://www.odwyerpr.com/story/public/9390/2017-09-13/scientists-35-countries-rap-proposed-calif-5g-radiation-rollout.html). To protect their health, California firefighters won an exemption from having small cells placed on their fire halls. It seems then, that the “smart” choice would be to adopt the precautionary principal for all, and not allow microcells to become permanent fixtures in our communities and our lives.
What’s the Game Plan?
The end game is no landlines and “smart” everything for all of us, and big bucks through data mining for the telecoms. Don’t be fooled into thinking these technologies are green. The “Cloud” is a huge energy guzzler, while tech production and waste is anything but eco-friendly.
There are safe ways of sharing high-speed data, like using wired fiber optic connections. New paradigms in non-harm inducing connectivity are waiting to be discovered, but industry must be urged by consumers and regulators to develop and promote them.
In the News
While concerns about the effects of wireless technologies and the need for more protective EMF exposure guidelines have made recent headlines in Brussels (http://www.odwyerpr.com/story/public/9390/2017-09-13/scientists-35-countries-rap-proposed-calif-5g-radiation-rollout.html), Massachusetts (https://malegislature.gov/Bills/190/SD1462.Html), Paris, France (https://www.goodplanet.info/actualite/2017/03/02/paris-va-reduire-de-30-lexposition-aux-ondes-electromagnetiques/), Romania (https://ehtrust.org/recommendations-consumers-protection-association-romania-cell-phones-wireless/) and more, government and media here at home remain eerily silent on what may very well be the most pressing health issue of our time.
This summer, 300 California cities have voiced strong opposition to a California microcell placement bill, SB 649. This bill would essentially create the same situation there that we have here – telecoms being given free rein to use the public right of way for profit, disturbing the sanctity of our streets, and maybe even preventing us from getting that proverbial good night’s sleep.

All cell phone companies are planning to change to a new communications system that will allow SmartPhones to download streaming videos 100 times faster than the current 4G smartphones.
This new system is called 5G (5th Generation) and uses much higher radio frequencies than the current 4G. This will be a fantastic upgrade if it were not for some very serious problems:
All this means that there will be a HUGE increase in the level of RF Radiation that will impact everyone at home, at school, shopping and even driving.
If you have any concerns about the current 4G cellphone smartphone system then you should learn more about 5G which has the potential to be really, really bad for your health.

The Goddard Report Video Archives of Interviews with Sharon Noble, Director, Coalition to Stop Smart Meters re Smart Meters and Health Issues from Wireless Technologies:
Boeing – EA-18G Growler Airborne Electronic Attack Aircraft [720p]:
An article in a recent Saanich News article about the noise from the US aircraft stationed on a nearby US island. No mention of the wargames and the increase in the aircraft and the number of flights that will result, not to mention the increase in EMR. After all the letters and calls to various levels of government, why is this not known?
Please write to Councillor Haynes ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) and Mayor Jensen ( email@example.com ) and comment to this article, etc. about what you know. I provided an update in a recent post: http://www.stopsmartmetersbc.com/olympic-peninsula-us-navy-war-games-authorized-to-go-ahead-july-31-2017/ . The Navy said that there will be hundreds of flights each week, often at low altitudes, for the next several years. Now that people are hearing the Growlers is the time to tell them that they have more to endure unless the Federal government gets involved to stop this intrusion.
Frustrated residents can also voice their noise concerns with Growlers via the NAS Whidbey Island automated comment line (1-360-257-6665).
Cell phones were great. We could make and receive calls anywhere and any time.
Smart phones are very different. This are basically portable desktop computers that can do EVERYTHING your desire. Things like view every Cat or Dog video, Video chat with your 10 friends all day, text to your friends about everything that you are doing like going shopping, or walking in the park, or watching TV. They really care what you are doing with your life.
The heavy use of Smart Phones is thought to require 50 to 100 times the cell tower capacity than the old cell phones required and this means that the cell phone companies MUST install more and more towers to keep up with the demand. And this is the reason why the push is on for micro cell towers to be installed on every street in every residential area in every city in Canada and the US. The advent of the new 5G technology supports this roll out. And 5G radiation may be similar to the airport X-Ray machines that are now thought to cause cancer.
So, dear people, research and understand what is going on and if you believe that this might not be a good evolution of technology then DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. Please.
CELL Phones and SMART Phones are very important tools that are used by almost everyone. The BENEFITS are enormous.
However, there are many studies that show that there are some health issues with these amazing devices and you should be aware of what these might be.
Here is an example of How to use your Smart Phone responsibly and safely. Your life may depend on knowing what is good and what is BAD.
