- Hydro’s incompetence in planning projects and managing them is notorious. And now the SAP program or “sucks at projects” as one commenter calls it, is over budget and without oversight.

- Below, in the letter section, is a response a member gave to the survey by Camosun College asking for input about their planned Health and Wellness Education Centre. I hope you will consider offering your ideas. fluidsurveys.com/surveys/cam-admin/online-questionnaire-chw-consultation/
- Perry Kendall is the head of the provincial health authorities which are split by area. The Island Health Authority section is holding public meetings. There is an upcoming one in Campbell River June 25. Details are at and rules re. questions are at http://www.viha.ca/about_viha/board_of_directors/meetings/ Future meetings are planned for Port Alberni on Oct 1, and in Sidney on Nov. 26. Questions must be submitted in advance, and, unfortunately, the deadline for questions in Campbell River has passed. These meeting provide an opportunity to address issues of concern like wifi in school and $$meters.
- In Alberta Fortis is making another exception for customers – they can read their meters and send it in. Why, when the smeters are wired, would this be necessary? Why won’t they allow customers with analogs do the same in BC? Because Hydro won’t allow it?
Wired smeters and use of the powerlines create problems, serious problems, for those who are sensitive and health problems for everyone else through high levels of dirty electricity.

- An excellent interview in Los Angeles with someone fighting the proliferation of cell towers in LA. It starts at the 42 minute mark of the interview for June 15, the top one listed. Telus and Rogers are erecting cell towers all over the province to support the $$mart meter program. As well they are installing collectors and microcells with a few yards of homes, often at the level of the second story bedroom. People have a right to know the risk this poses to all of us, without our knowledge or our permission. It is key that every community have a strong antenna siting consultation policy. Demand that your rights be respected.
A Vision for the Centre for Health and Wellness at Camosun College
What challenges do you see for health and wellness on South Vancouver Island in the next ten years?
⑴ food quality (organic freshly grown is best)
⑵ decreased confidence in face-to-face live interactions (due to extended screen time)
⑶ health risks from increased exposure to non-ionizing RF radiation (installing fibre optics is safer)
⑷ sedentary life style (due to preoccupation with screen time)
⑸ ageing population requiring more services
When you think about the challenges, what do you see as the education-related needs within them?
⑴ Students growing organic food on the property; Offer canning and food prep from scratch classes.
⑵ Offer Nonviolent Communication classes where students gain a better understanding of themselves and others and get to experience the fulfilment of connecting.
⑶ Install fibre optics; offer wired docking for laptops; lobby technology companies for wired tablet options; offer “safer wireless” classes (airplane mode; distance is your friend); have a no wireless policy at the centre.
⑷ Incorporate exercise breaks and face-to-face live interactions within lesson plans.
⑸ Since the best way to remember something is to teach it, provide free services and active educational experiences for the elderly involving poetry/song/dance/athletics/gardening/food prep; advertise, inviting elderly who wish to share their skills/talents/stories with the students.
If Camosun were to create a Centre for Health and Wellness and it was wildly successful, what would it look like?
It would have an organic garden, a kitchen, exercise gadgets & facilities, and an abundance of natural light in rooms. It would be a wireless free zone. One would see all ages with friendly smiles.

Re: WiFi radiation in schools
Dear Mr. Lambert,
A recent letter, penned by you was brought to my attention in regards to WiFi in schools. The inaccuracy of your reply left me speechless and highly alarmed.
“I understand that although RF fields vary depending on the technology used, radio frequency exposure from Wi-Fi devices is very low. In fact, the components of a Wi-Fi Internet router will emit radio signals similar to commonplace appliances, such as AM or FM radios and baby monitors.” – Tim Lambert, PhD – Executive Director, Health Protection Branch, Ministry of Health
I have conducted many microwave radiation tests of numerous wireless devices, including WiFi. Have you conducted such tests, personally?
If you had done any RF testing, especially WiFi in schools, you would quickly realize that your statements comparing WiFi to AM/FM radio, are monumentally false!
Unlike WiFi, which emits unnatural pulsed radiation, AM/FM radios emit nothing, even when the meter is held right in front of the radio receiver! My RF meter is able to measure as low as 0.0005 mW/cm2 and AM/FM radios do not activate the meter, while with WiFi, it indicates very high readings at a considerable distance. AM/FM radios do not transmit! Further, WiFi radiation e-smog pollution penetrates walls and is measurable in adjacent rooms.
Man made radiation has increased million times above the natural ambient radiation of Earth. It differs not only in intensity, but also in the fact that it is not pulsed.
“As long as exposure is below these established limits, there is no convincing scientific evidence that this equipment is dangerous to schoolchildren or to the public in general.” – Tim Lambert, PhD – Executive Director, Health Protection Branch, Ministry of Health
Does it not bother you, that in Feb. 2013, in front of the Superior Court of Quebec, Health Canada’s scientists, James McNamee admitted that the Safety Code 6 guideline for microwave radiation, which includes WiFi, cell towers, mobile phones, smart meters and baby monitors etc. is based ONLY on preventing heating effects, while biological effects are not considered?
Health Canada admits that Safety Code 6 for frequencies between 100 kHz and 300 GHz are based ONLY on heating!
For years Health Canada has falsely stated that Safety Code 6 takes into consideration and protects the public from both thermal and non-thermal effects!
Why is the public not allowed to know, that this safety guideline was designed only to protect military staff from heating of tissue, averaged over a six minute period. It was never intended for 27/7 radiation exposure for children, teachers, the unborn, the sick and the elderly.
In 2002, the Freiburger Appeal, signed initially by over 1000 physicians, morphed into the International Doctors Appeal signed by thousands.
“Despite all warnings, more and more new wireless technologies are introduced into our daily lives: cell phone networks, TETRA, LTE, cordless phones, Wi-Fi, baby monitors, wireless meters, digital radio and TV, and many others. All of these wireless technologies interfere with the biophysical organization of life with increasing layers and densities of electromagnetic fields.”
In May of this year, 200 EMF scientists announced to the UNITED NATIONS and the WHO:
“The various agencies setting safety standards have failed to impose sufficient guidelines to protect the general public, particularly children who are more vulnerable to the effects of EMF.”
Will the Ministry of Health continue to shamefully misinform the public, and be one of those government agencies, unwilling to correct serious mistakes?
To err is human, but for the Ministry of Health to continue to give inaccurate information to the public, is irresponsible and immoral!
