1) In France, a scientist is found guilty by Court of not revealing conflicts of interest in testimony re. air pollution. This sends a message to bent scientists that they will face consequences – and hopefully, the rest of the world will follow.

French scientist fined for failure to disclose industry ties
“In an unprecedented court case in Paris, an eminent French lung specialist has been fined €50,000 (US$57,000) and given a six-month suspended prison sentence because he did not disclose his ties to the oil industry during a Senate air-pollution inquiry.”
2) Pender Island residents are organizing to protest a new cell tower which is to be sited very close to homes, for the primary use of BC Ferries. And the fellow who wants to lease his land for big bucks believes what he has been told – it’s completely safe, Canada has among the highest standards in the world – so safe he will build a home next to it. Someone needs to get info to this fellow about the risks he faces – health as well as financial.

3) Except for saying that 5G will benefit everyone, this article describes well why the concern about microcells is increasing in many places. Why should we have to give our public property to the telecoms, like Telus, for their profit?
“Local government officials are crying foul, calling it an audacious power grab and the equivalent of a gift of public funds to billion-dollar telecommunications companies that don’t need the help.”
4) Comments from a member about going off grid and the problems with inverters.
Just want to share that having lived off the grid for 5 years, solar power is not a good solution in terms of EMF protection if you have an inverter (which most people have in order to convert solar power from 12/24v to 110-125v to be used by common household appliances).
The inverter is a huge source of high magnetic field and it can also cause dirty electricity in the wiring (maybe even more so than smart meter). This was my experience and this is also mentioned repeatedly in Jeromy Johnson’s book:
I just moved and am now in a home with the smart meter installed about 25m from the house. Since we don’t use any wireless device, our RF level is low to undetectable level on the Acoustimeter and the DE (EMI) level is also very low.
I’m not saying Smart meter is a good thing (still think it’s a dumb waster of money and it’s intrusive), but for the EHS population, going off-grid may not be a be-all, end-all solution. People need to be aware of that.
5) We all know that the major justification the Governments and the utilities give for the smeters is that they will save energy. This does not happen, as we know. But we are being pushed to conserve energy and why? It seems it’s so the data centres that are gathering, storing, using our personal data can have energy. Could this need for energy for the data centres be why the Liberals pushed so hard for Site C?

Subject: BC ferries – not Wi-Fi free for long
I’d like to mention that the statement below from Josee Magas of BC Ferries is almost misleading.
Yes, they do not have Wi-Fi on a couple of the older vessels at the moment, but we were present on the Queen of Alberni when a passenger asked the Second Steward about Wi-Fi. His answer was: ” . . . they are working on it!”
The Steward’s statement makes it obvious, that BC Ferries is not revealing the truth.
It is an outrage, that in order to avoid Wi-Fi, people from the Southern Island have to travel 2 hours up the island and 2 hours on their return trip. 4 extra hours of travel?

Thank you for your email.
I have confirmed that the Wi-Fi free travel option between Vancouver Island and the Mainland can be found on our Duke Point, Nanaimo to Tsawwassen route as the Queen of Alberni and Coastal Inspiration vessels do not offer Wi-Fi onboard.
Thank you for pointing that out.
