**Updates may be erratic over the next few days because I will be having guests who have never been to Victoria before. **

1)    Non-smeter re. Site C. Clark is giving a deadline of June 15 for Horgan and Weaver to decide if work on Site C should be stopped. If you have concerns about this project, now is the time to let Horgan and/or Weaver know. There might still be a chance to stop this expensive, unnecessary, and environmentally unsound project.

2)    CTV news: Doctors should warn parents that children’s screen time should be very limited, especially in the younger age groups.  Too bad there was nothing about the RF factor.

Doctors urged to encourage minimal screen use for toddlers and preschoolers

The group representing Canada’s pediatricians is urging health care providers to advise parents that they should minimize the amount of time young kids spend on screens, and instead encourage more active play and time spent together as a family.

In a new statement issued Thursday, the Canadian Paediatric Society called on doctors to recommend that parents and caregivers minimize the amount of time their kids spend in front of screens, such as tablets, TVs, phones and computers

3)    A pretty good YouTube which is general in nature but speaks about smeters and shows some international guidelines compared to Canada (around 9 minute point) and takes measurements (at 13 minute point).  The measurements are given as microwatts per “cubic” centimeter, which really is “square” centimeter.
