As the UBCM conference approaches, the update tonight is all about microcells (except for one letter) that hold several transmitters and will, eventually, be used to hold 5G transmitters. Tomorrow night’s update will be devoted to my Smart Meter Fire Report.

From a Councillor who has worked to have a resolution regarding microcells presented to the Union of BC Municipalities conference Sept 27-29, she has received word that she will have 5 minutes to present the issue of microcell transmitter placement in a meeting with Councillors from smaller communities.  This is such an important opportunity to raise awareness about this and to educate people about the health implications as well as the lack of federal restrictions. If you haven’t done so already, please take a minute to write to your Council members and mayors, and to your local newspapers about this topic. An information flyer is available at:

There is a lot of useful info at this site as well that you could give your Councillors. They should be told, for instance, that more than 200 cities in California are rejecting microcells and are asking for a moratorium on installations.

Letters:

A letter re microcells, written by one of our members, was published in the local newspaper. I hope you will consider adding your comments.

To:          Ms. Sharon Noble

Dear Ms. Noble:

On behalf of the Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development (ISED), thank you for your email regarding the ISED document, Consultation on Releasing Millimetre Wave Spectrum to Support 5G.

As this is a formal consultation process, all comments received, including yours, will be published on ISED’s Spectrum Management and Telecommunications website after the initial comment period has ended. Please note that the initial comment deadline has been extended to September 15, 2017. Also, the deadline to submit replies to published comments has been extended to October 20, 2017.

Rest assured that the Department will carefully consider every comment received prior to the published deadlines through this process before making a decision on releasing millimetre wave spectrum to support 5G.

Please accept my best wishes.

Sincerely,

Adam Scott
A/Director General
Spectrum Licensing and Policy Branch

Subject: Consultation on Releasing Millimetre Wave Spectrum to Support 5G.

Dear Sir or Madam:

Re: Consultation on Releasing Millimetre Wave Spectrum to Support 5G 

There are more than 23,000 studies showing that prolonged exposure to even low levels of microwave radiation is deleterious to the health of all living things. These studies were done using manmade frequencies that are pervasive in our environment today, emitted by wireless devices such as cell towers and phones, smart meters, and wifi, and do not include any in the milliwave range. The technology using this extremely high frequency range is so new that only a few studies have been done, but evidence is clear that harm will be caused especially to the outer surfaces of the human body, such as skin and eyes.

1)    Human Skin as Arrays of Helical Antennas in the Millimeter and Submillimeter Wave Range

In summary it is claimed that individual sweat ducts are low-Qhelical antennas and that their presence in the skin means that the skin can be regarded as a 2D antenna array in the sub-terahertz region. The spectral response is sensitive to the activity of the sweat system. These claims were substantiated experimentally where it was shown that the spectral response of the EM reflectance of the skin is indeed correlated with the activity level of the perspiration system and follows the same temporal behavior as other physiological parameters, such as the pulse rate and the systolic blood pressure.

Abstract: https://ehtrust.org/wp-content/uploads/Yuri-Feldman-and-Paul-Ben-Ishai-Abstract.pdf

Additional information regarding the effects of exposure to milliwave radiation can be found at:

https://ehtrust.org/science/key-scientific-lectures/2017-expert-forum-wireless-radiation-human-health/

Industry has been allowed to produce, sell and install devices that emit microwave radiation despite all of the scientific evidence showing that serious biological and health effects can result, and even after the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classified such radiation as a 2B carcinogen. Not only is this unconscionable, but it is counter to the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.

http://www.ohchr.org/Documents/Publications/GuidingPrinciplesBusinessHR_EN.pdf

I ask that the Innovation, Science and Economic Development consider the human cost for emphasizing “economic development: and call for a moratorium on installation of microcells emitting 5G radiation throughout our homes, schools and businesses.

Respectfully,
Sharon Noble

Keshni Nand,

YOUR REQUESTED QUESTIONS::
Service Address: xxxxxx
Account number: xxxxxx
Yes, you have my consent to my information to be shared.

Every second month I pay my hydro bill, last bill was for months Apr 21-June 19th  60 days with the note that the next meter reading on or about Aug 18.  Aug 18 I met the woman that read the meter and this woman didn’t have the electrical notepad that the usual meter reader had, this woman had a regular note book with a whole bunch of scribbling on the page and she put down my meter amount.  Which was 52134 and it was duly recorded as I always do……… August 18th 9:55 am read…….

August 28 went to get my mail and NO BC HYDRO Bill. At 1:26pm Aug 28 phoned Hydro and asked where my bill was …….”Oh you have been locked out for your own protection” was the answer. “WHY”, was my rebuttal….. the girl answered  stated “that we were in evac order and everyone had their accounts locked”. I told the girl the ORDER WAS LIFTED ON JULY 27 and even the alert was lifted and we were free….. I told her that the woman came on the 18th of August and read the meter & it was 52134 and that I was to get a bill at the end of the month to be paid in September and asked for the bill. The statement was that the supervisor would phone me.  NO PHONE CALL FROM A SUPER.

September 5/7 11:22 am, phoned BC Hydro again, the guy said he would put me through to the supervisor.  Annie came on the line @ 11:35am she stated the bill doesn’t start till September 8th so I don’t get a bill. I asked for a bill to be sent to me. The bills come out in October was the answer. This would put me out of sync with the way I have been paying every year.  I wanted her to give me the amount I owed off the reading on August 18th and she said it couldn’t be done.  I told her that she better accept a payment from me, that I would be sending the legacy meter mafia money that BC Hydro extorts from us analog meter persons and that it better go into my account and be duly recorded as I have proof of it through my telephone banking account. She stated “”sure you can pay anytime you want to””. YES BUT HYDRO DIDN’T GIVE ME A BILL.  Here’s the kicker – my neighbour who has a smart meter got her bill and she couldn’t figure out what the $7.87 was on the bill then she looked at it again and LOW & BEHOLD IT WAS THE CREDIT THAT BC HYDRO HAD BEEN SAYING ON THE NEWS THAT, we in the fire zones would get a CREDIT Yeh!!! right  You really care don’t you BC HYDRO. I got my month of July fully paid by both Telus & Shaw Direct NOW THAT IS CARING. I couldn’t care about your potty CREDIT wow that sure will help $7.00.

THE CONTRACT IS:  Every second month I pay for the last 60-65 days. Plus I’m to pay the blood money of $32.40 a month for the privilege of having a home that isn’t every minute bombarded with dirty electricity. ON HYDRO’S PART THEY ARE TO PROVIDE ME WITH A WRITTEN STATEMENT EVERY TWO MONTHS  Now I’m thinking that this is a ploy to get the analogue people so in arrears that they will go for a smart meter……SIMPLE THEY COULD SEND ME A BILL ON TIME.  If I ran my household books like BC Hydro is corruptly running their business then I would be in jail WHY AREN’T THEY.

NOW! BC HYDRO SEND ME A BILL WITH THE READING FOR AUGUST 18th AMOUNT  FOR MY BOOK KEEPING  as I do an excellent job of keeping track of the $64.80 every 2 months that you call a CREDIT at the top of your invoice .The amount you have extorted  is paid on the 5/6 of the month I have to pay my bill and the amount of actual meter usage on the 13/14 of the month. NOW BCUC START DOING YOUR JOB WHICH WAS TO PROTECT THE PUBLIC FROM THE GREED OF CORPORATIONS LIKE BC HYDRO.

From X age 71 on FIXED INCOME.
