Many of us believe that radio frequency Radiation (RFRad) is causing many people, perhaps all people, harm. We are currently seeing an increase in sensitivity of RFRad in the form of EHS (Electro Hyper sensitivity) and various cancers. Many people feel no harm and are not sensitive but that does not necessarily mean there is no harm being done on a long term basis.
If we lived in a democracy and a large segment of the population expressed concerns about this problem then there would be major investigations and studies performed to determine the validity of the concerns and the extent of the problem. The understanding would be that “surely so many people cannot be crazy. surely there must be something going on that we do not understand”
If we lived in a democracy then our governments would proceed with the Precautionary Principle and would halt the ever increase in the levels of RFRad from Cell towers, Cell phones, wi-fi routers and Smart meters until it was clear that harm from RFRad was real and not just psychosomatic.
But we do not live in a democracy. It looks like a democracy from the outside and everyone calls it a democracy but it is not really a democracy.
Our Canadian governments and those of the USA are owned by the large corporations who have the money and intelligence to make the governments dance to corporation’s music.
The Corporation’s primary objective is to make money for their share holders and so, for a corporation to make money they have to do everything possible to do so. See the movie available on the internet – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Corporation_%28film%29
The Corporation is psychopathic. See the definition.
Federal governments are influenced in many ways to make life easier for the Corporations to make their profits, Lobbying is the term used and good old money is the currency. I have just found a very recent article published by the Guardian newspaper concerning how major US Corporations have given millions of dollars to various US Senators in order to fast track the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). Fast track is the term used to get the bill signed without due process of discussion and argument and understanding. It goes something like this: “Senator Rob XXXXX of the state of XXXX, vote to Fast Track this TPP bill and we will give your election campaign office $120,000. Agreed? Good?”. See the full article at this link.
You should be aware of the TPP because Canada and 11 other countries are entering into this trade agreement that seems to be primarily to the benefit of the major corporations and NOT to the various governments and certainly not to the average citizen. And it seems that the details of the agreement are still secret. What? Our government is not letting us know what they are getting us into! What? We just might not agree with our government.
The reason I bring up the TPP and Corporations and the lack of Democracy is that this process is exactly the same as the Wireless business in Canada and the US. We, the citizens that are aware and are concerned, are not being listened to by the Corporations or by our elected Government departments – Health Canada being the major one. Why? It is because the Corporations have paid so much money to the governments that the Governments cannot change the rules now. I am not saying that in Canada that the Corporations are paying Senators or the political parties directly similar to what is happening in the US. The Canadian Government itself is receiving lots of money from all aspects of the wireless business: taxes on all sales, rent of wireless spectrum to the wireless companies (example – Canada wireless spectrum 2500 MHz Auction 2015 January netted about $750 million).
If the Canadian government were suddenly to change its policy and start listening to the concerned citizens and start to remove or limit the RFRAD devices then they would be forfeiting a huge portion of their income, which they have used to balance the federal budgets. We would all feel the pinch: hospitals, schools, the military.
So in my view, the current fight of the citizens concerned about the huge growth in the RFRAD and wireless business and electro pollution from Smart Meters, cell phones and the ubiquitous WiFi will continue until we have enough scientific evidence to prove in court that RFRad is actually damaging our health and that the federal government then must act to prevent further harm. This will cause major economic stress on the government but for the continued health of it citizens, it must be done. My guess is within 4 years from now we will see some major changes.
