**Correction and amendment to last night’s update

about cell towers and the rash of applications. I said there was one before Saanich Council. It is Central Saanich Council.  And in Sooke, I learned today that Shaw has multiple applications for cell towers in Sooke city centre and the residential areas near to Sooke.**

1)    A member is warning that BC Hydro is taking analogs, installing smeters without warning or turning power off, on Protection Island in Nanaimo Harbour. This is counter to everything BC Hydro has said it would do – write to people in advance, allow everyone a chance to turn power off, etc. And to have a smeter with the transmitter turned off.

I suggest people complain to BC Hydro greg.reimer@bchydro.com and BCUC Patrick.wruck@bcuc.com about this. If BC Hydro is bullying and barging in – this should be reported.

Also, many of the analogs were replaced 2-3 years ago with “new” analogs that should have varied lengths of time until expiry date. It sounds as if they are going wholesale – no exceptions.

2)    In Colorado, a group is attempting to make it illegal to sell a cell phone that will be used by anyone under 13.

DENVER – If an advocacy group in Colorado has it’s (sic) way, voters in the state will decide whether selling cell phones to kids under the age of 13 would be illegal.

Parents Against Underage Smartphones is currently collecting signatures in an effort to get a measure on the 2018 ballot.

The proposal would forbid the sale of smartphones to anyone under the age of 13

3)    An appeal by scientists for the FCC in the USA for a moratorium to transmitters emitting 5G milliwaves.

“The advisors to the International EMF Scientist Appeal submitted a letter to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in opposition to a proposed change in FCC rules that would allow rapid deployment of 5th generation (5G) wireless infrastructure throughout the nation. A copy of the Appeal was appended to the letter. 

5G involves transmission of millimeter waves which operate at much higher frequencies than currently used for cellular transmission (30 to 300 gigahertz). Because the range of these signals is limited (i.e., less than a football field), hundreds of thousands of new “small cell” antennas will be required in the U.S. The wireless industry wants to install these not-so-small cellular antennas on existing public utility poles…

Safety testing for 5G is the same as other wireless devices. It is based on heat. This is an obsolete standard and not considering current science showing cellular and organism harm from non-thermal effects. There is a large gap in safety data for 5G biological effects that has been demonstrated in older studies including military.”

4)    I strongly encourage you to read this – it’s 24 pages that show how negligent Canada and the USA are re. children and cell phones, and how obsolete our guidelines are. On page 8/24 (or page 322 of the book) is a chart showing guidelines for other countries. Until recently, Canada’s Safety Code 6 was similar to ICNIRP’s. The new SC 6 (which was revised after protests and complaints by many of us and without explanation) allows exposure at 900 MHz frequency of 274 microwatts per centimeter squared (uW/cm2) and 439 uW/cm2.  We are higher than the vast majority of countries even after these reductions.  Dr. Grigoriev is pleading that precautionary measures be taken especially for children – they are being exposed like never before in human history. We all are guinea pigs in this involuntary experiment.

The Radiation Research Trust are pleased to provide a chapter written by Professor Yury Grigoriev, Deputy chairman of the Scientific Council of Radiobiology RAS President of Russian National Committee on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection, Member of Int. Advisory Committee of WHO “EMF and Health”: The chapter is taken from the book “Dosimetry in Bioelectromagnetics” published and edited by M. Markov. Titled “Methodology of Standards Development for EMF RF in Russia and by International Commissions: Distinctions in Approaches.”

The greatest enemy of truth is very often not the lie – deliberate, contrived and dishonest
but the myth, persistent, persuasive and unrelenting.
Belief in myths allows the comfort of opinion
without the discomfort of thought.
