WIRED TO DELIVER – New Site Promotes Community Fiber not Industry-Driven 5G – Press Release by Connected Communities – March 20, 2019

http://www.stopsmartmetersbc.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/WIRED-TO-DELIVER-New-Site-Promotes-Community-Fiber-not-Industry-Driven-5G-Press-Release-by-Connected-Communities-March-20-2019.pdf

WIRED TO DELIVER:

New Site Promotes Community Fiber not Industry-Driven 5G

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – March 20, 2019

Contact:   connected.communities.ca@gmail.com

While last week’s launch of the federal spectrum auction gave the green light to 5G in Canada, many communities across North America are choosing to build and operate their own fiber-to-the-premises networks. An innovative new Canadian website

Connected Communities

explains the many benefits of community-owned fiber, and provides a blueprint for how towns and cities can make it happen.

Why Community-owned Wired Fiber?

  • Wired fiber is faster, safer, cheaper, greener, more reliable, and more data secure than wireless 5G – the 5th generation of cellular technology. This in-depth report explains why.
  • Community owned fiber keeps telecommunications infrastructure in local hands and keeps it responsive to local needs. From improved emergency services and economic opportunities to resource monitoring and distributing locally generated renewable energy – the manifold benefits of community-owned fiber make it the truly smart choice.

A Smarter Choice than Wireless 5G

As Senator Blumenthal uncovered in this Senate hearing, 5G is being unleashed with no pre-market safety testing. Wired fiber can essentially fill the same functions as wireless 5G, without the risks.

  • The Globe and Mail’s European Bureau Chief Eric Reguly discusses the health risks of 5G here
  • In the wake of the Huawei scandal, this article reveals the sinister cyber and national security risks of 5G.

Beneath the marketing hype, it is unlikely wireless 5G will fulfill its promises. (Learn more here.) Rather than heralding the future, 5G is shaping it to telecom’s advantage.

Success Stories

Cities like Chattanooga Tennessee, Portland Oregon, Olds Alberta, San Francisco and Seattle – cities that value data privacy, autonomy, local prosperity and wellbeing – have chosen or are choosing community-owned fiber. The telecommunications highway today fulfills the same function that roads and railways once filled for trade and commerce. It is essential that this infrastructure be not for meeting corporate interests, but for the public good.

To learn more, visit Connected Communities and spread the word – wired networks offer safe, net neutral, fast and reliable connectivity for years to come.

A Bad Bargain? Why Today’s Spectrum Auction makes Dollars but not Sense by Citizens for Safe Technology – March 12, 2019

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

http://www.stopsmartmetersbc.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/A-Bad-Bargain-Why-Today’s-Spectrum-Auction-makes-Dollars-but-not-Sense-by-Citizens-for-Safe-Technology-March-12-2019.pdf

Contact:  CST.CitizensforSafeTechnology@gmail.com

A Bad Bargain? Why Today’s Spectrum
 Auction makes Dollars but not Sense

 

Today the Canadian government is making billions auctioning off new bands of our public airwaves to an industry that has done NO pre-market safety testing of the 5G technology they are unleashing. 

 

As admitted by US telecommunication industry leaders last month to US Senator Richard Blumenthal in this video “we are flying by the seat of our pants”.

 

Don’t be fooled by 5G’s promises of ultrafast video download speeds, smart cities, the internet of things, and autonomous cars.

 

  • This recent Boston Globe article shows that the “non-standalone” 5G model telecoms are introducing in North America will not provide the backbone needed to fulfill these promises.

 

 

  • And in the wake of Canada’s Huawei scandal, this recent article focuses on the sinister cyber-security and national security issues associated with a wireless 5G grid.

Why go wireless when wired fiber to the premises networks are faster, safer, greener and more data secure than 5G will ever be?  

 

This website shows communities how and why the time is ripe to build their own wired fiber networks, keeping the telecommunications infrastructure in local hands.  

The best way to predict the future is to create it.

UBCM Votes Yes to Having a Say in Microcell Placement

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
 
Contact Oona McOuat
oonasong@yahoo.com
250-537-2088
 
SALT SPRING, September 28 – At the UBCM this morning, the province’s local governments voted to support a resolution on giving them a say when microcells are placed within 100 meters of homes, schools and hospitals in their communities.

Enjoy this 1-minute animation on the Resolution:

Why This Resolution Matters
 
Despite a substantial body of evidence showing wireless technology is harmful to humans and the environment, Innovation Canada allows microcells to be placed on lampposts and utility poles by our homes without our consent or often knowledge.
 
Aesthetics, property value, liability, industry control-for-profit over the public right of way, cyber-security, public safety, health, and well-being – there are many reasons why local governments are concerned about microcells.

The Resolution That Was Passed:

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 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 – 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. However, 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. To protect their health, California firefighters won an exemption from having small cells placed on their fire halls. The question is, don’t the rest of us deserve this same protection? 
 
Safe Connectivity is an Option
 
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. 
 

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. (To see why over 180 European scientists and physicians have just announced they are opposed to mass microcell placement in preparation for 5G deployment click here (https://tinyurl.com/ycx5ngnx)

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 (http://www.lexnet.fr/fileadmin/user/communication/LEXNET-Press_Release_1.pdf) – why are we permitting telecoms to choose to put the well being of all of us, including wildlife and plants at risk, when safe options are available?

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.

The Resolution:

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.

Complaints in Victoria re US Navy Aircraft Noise

Boeing – EA-18G Growler Airborne Electronic Attack Aircraft [720p]:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JSK-JcK1MTc

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 ( fred.haynes@saanich.ca ) and Mayor Jensen ( obcouncil@oakbay.ca ) 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.

https://www.saanichnews.com/news/growlers-continue-to-growl-at-oak-bay-victoria-residents-2/

Frustrated residents can also voice their noise concerns with Growlers via the NAS Whidbey Island automated comment line (1-360-257-6665).
