2016-06-19 The Tyee — Govt. manipulating BC Hydro and us.

Sorry that there was no update last night. Let me explain my trials over the last couple of days, just in case you might be considering Telus’s fiber optic cable system. As you know, I switched to Telus, and am now back at Shaw, and this is why:

TELUS Fibre FAQ list

Weeks ago, we were visited by a Telus rep telling us that fiber optic cable could be brought to our home and our entire system (TV and internet, even phone if we wanted) could be connected. Of course we emphasized that we would not accept any wireless portion at all, and confirmed this several times with the techies as well as confirming in writing prior to installation.

On Tues. last week, the system was installed – took 6 hours to lay wire, etc. We asked how people who want wireless get access and the installer said a different modem is used. He was fully aware we demanded wired. When he finished but had not left, we brought our meters out and they went crazy. The installer went pale, saying he didn’t understand and basically ran from our home. We unplugged everything and the “Gateway” was still emitting. We couldn’t turn the thing off. Out of 5 black boxes for our TVs, 2 were emitting very strong signals. We called that night to complain and got the same old “it is safe, it was disabled,. etc.” depending on the person at the end of the line.

We called the next morning and cancelled (there were other problems but this was the main one.). Imagine if we had not had RF meters – we would not have known. The next day, the Shaw installer came and found that a wifi modem had been installed  – it served no purpose but to connect wirelessly to something.

We feel as if we were deceived and I intend to lay a formal complaint with Consumer Affairs as well as every level of Telus. (This is in addition to consistent incompetence. I could write a book.)

BTW, our Shaw installer said that more and more people are having their wireless internet wired, and when he asks why, health is usually the reason.

1)    A general summary of the NTP [National Toxicology Program] study with info for those who are new to the topic.  Momentum is building for the precautionary principle to be implemented, and we must demand that our provincial health authority, “Dr.” Perry Kendall, stop hiding behind Safety Code 6 and do his job – which is to protect the public from possible harm.

2)    A partial summary of studies by Michael Bevington in the UK who, for many years, has gathered and shared information on EHS. His website is a valuable resource for those suffering sensitivity to RF. Lots of references for letters, etc.

3)    BC Hydro in its business case used the time-of-use billing concept to justify the $$mart program, saying it would reduce usage. Hydro didn’t include the fact that usage has not reduced in any place where this method of charging has been implemented, and neither did Hydro say that this cruel structure affects those who can least afford to pay – those who are at home during the day: the young families, the disabled and the elderly. In the US, AARP has noted that time-of-use billing has resulted in serious harm to many. This from someone in Illinois.

“AARP was quite helpful in Illinois along with the Attorney General (Lisa Madigan) in opposition to smart meters in 2012.  But in the end, they failed.

There is one submittal I have frequently quoted that was filed with the Illinois Commerce Commission (ICC) by the AARP and the People of Illinois (Attorney General):

“The ComEd AMI HIA [Health Impact Assessment] found that changes to pricing programs that charge much higher prices during certain times of day can cause some customers to reduce usage to avoid higher or unaffordable bills, resulting in under-usage of electricity resulting in extremes in temperatures indoors.  Exposure to temperatures outside of a moderate range increases the likelihood of hospital emergency department visits, hospitalizations, and premature death.”

The AARP white paper in 2010 shows that long before BC Hydro and FortisBC signed their contracts, problems had been identified that should have caused this government to heed the BCUC’s approach in 2008 when it declined the initial $$mart meter application.

4)    Another very informative article by The Tyee showing how the government is using and misusing BC Hydro for its own purposes, which seems to be to deceive us. How is it legal for the authority responsible for the oversight of BC Hydro, the BC Utilities Commission, to have been emasculated? Recent major projects that, by law, should have BCUC overlooking the need and the implementation, are running rogue, with no control and no one responsible. The $$meter program is a prime example. The financial reports are laughable, missing major costs and future expenditures. The BCUC has been told it cannot do its job even with regard to safety.

“It is time to re-establish the commission’s credibility in representing the public interest, and to provide a voice for future generations,” he told the panel, saying there have been no public hearings on BC Hydro’s finances and related policy questions for eight years.

“The fundamental question boils down to who represents the public interest?” he said. “From my research, this government has manipulated the financial details of our public power utility to meet its balanced budget objectives, and to set lower than necessary rates during election years… for political advantage.”

5)    Warning re Microsoft 10. I do not have this awful program, so I cannot confirm this.

“I had a problem when Windows 10 was automatically downloaded on my PC. Unbeknownst to me, it turned the wi-fi search feature back on that I had previously disabled. It was sending out a powerful EMF spike every minute or so. I became quite ill and didn’t connect it to an EMF issue until I discovered the spike when I was scanning the house with my Acousticom 2 for another issue. Due to the infrequency of the spike it is easy to miss even with a meter. Once it was again disabled I began to recover. One must be continuously diligent and it is so important to have some type of a quality detector or meter.”

Autism – The Crime of the Century!

Fifty years ago, few people had heard of autism or ADHD. Today, it threatens every technology-driven country, yet mainstream news media seldom mention it – on TV, on radio, or in daily newspapers. Why? Non-industry scientists around the world point the finger at today’s extremely profitable but hazardous consumer wireless radio products –  not one of which has been independently tested to prove it is safe to be used by, on and around people of all ages, of all sizes, of all levels of wellness on a continuous basis 24/7/365 in perpetuity – such as baby monitors, cell phones, cell phone towers, cordless phones, Wi-Fi routers, Bluetooth, GPS, laptop and tablet computers, Wi-Fi and Wi-MAX zones, etc., plus ‘Smart’ meters and ‘Smart’ appliances. See www.bioinitiative.org

Frightening Rates of Autism:

USA – 2015, 1 in 45 children ages 3-17! [1]
In populated cities – 1 in 27 children! [2]

Canada – 2015, 1 in 68 of ALL children, which is a 100% increase in just the past 10 years! The unemployment rate for people with autism is 80%! [3]

South Korea – 2011, 1 in 38 school children aged 7-12 suffer Autism or ADHD. That’s 2.64% of children in that age group! [4]

Japan – 2015, 1.6% of the entire population! [5]

Sincerely,
James G. (“Jerry”) Flynn, Captain (Retired)
