  • On June 10, CELA (Canadian Environmental Law Association) is holding a webinar (a web seminar). It is free but you must register. CELA is a major association and has participated in many of the precedent-setting environmental legal actions.

 

(CAREX (CARcinogen EXposure) Canada is a national surveillance project that estimates which known and suspected carcinogens Canadians are exposed to, where in Canada such exposures may occur, and which substances pose the greatest hazard to the public.
The ultimate goal of the project is to inform efforts to reduce these exposures and thereby help to prevent cancer.This webinar, presented in partnership with CELA by CAREX Canada’s Occupational Exposures Team Lead Cheryl Peters, will provide a broad overview about CAREX, how the exposure estimates were generated, and how users can conduct custom queries of these estimates. CELA Counsel Ramani Nadarajah will be part of a follow-up panel to discuss potential use of the CAREX data in litigation.
The webinar takes place on Wednesday, June 10, 2015 at 12:00 PM PST, 3:00 PM EST.
Registration is required. [- http://www.carexcanada.ca/en/CAREX_CELA_webinar/

Subject: LETTERS: RDOS (Regional District Okanagan South BC) moratorium on smart meters – Penticton Western News

 Esteemed Leaders:

Several times now I have warned you that insurance companies are excluding exposure to EMR from their policies.  Here’s one from AVIVA:

 “Risk is so fundamental to who we are that there are some risks that we simply will not insure against. These include activities such as nuclear risks (Nuclear Act 1965); manufacture of tobacco; manufacture/sale or supply of arms; animal testing; war and toxic waste. Our exclusions also apply to liability cover for electromagnetic fields and electromagnetic radiation;  asbestos products; and genetically modified organisms – among other examples.”

 http://www.aviva.com/reports/2012cr/strategy-governance/risk

 

Lloyd’s of London led the way in 2001, excluding liability for third party injury from EMR exposure by Big Telecom; now they exclude illness from EMR exposure, period.

 

Will you pay attention now that the insurance industry has vowed to sue every politician and bureaucrat who voted in favour of cell antennas, wifi routers, etc. despite knowing better?  

 

Or will we see you at Wreck Beach next, since you won’t have anything left for shelter or clothing?
