2)    From someone who lives too far away to participate at the UBCM next week. We are still in need of volunteers, but if you can’t help hand out flyers at the Convention Center, please write to Councils – and they don’t have to be yours.  One member has written to several and offer these ideas.

I would love to be there, but have to drive 3 hours, just to get to the Nanaimo ferry terminal. 

However, for those of us who are not able to be there, we could launch an email campaign, sending informational letters to individual council members and mayors of the towns around us, and even those who are further away.   

We have great scribes in our group, who could compose a well written letter, which could be passed to everyone.  Then all that has to be done, is send it out to various cities and even small communities.  No matter how small the community, they still count as one vote.

In my recent letter to several towns, I included:

* The 180 Scientist, Doctor Declaration for a 5G Moratorium. [http://www.saferemr.com/2017/09/5G-moratorium12.html]

* Oonas excellent microcell brochure. [http://www.stopsmartmetersbc.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/Microcell-Flyer-for-UBCM-revised.pdf]

* The short piece of Prof. Lennart Hardell, who is a key scientist in this, sent by Sharon in yesterday‘s update. [https://lennarthardellenglish.wordpress.com/category/glioma/]

* I also included the whopping 105.1000 mW/m2 reading, we got from a microcell in front of a home, on Vancouver Island (Campbell River) and added  The Austrian Medical Association, EMF Guideline [http://www.magdahavas.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/Austrian-EMF-Guidelines-2012.pdf] for comparison.
Page 9, EMF Guideline:
1.000 mW/m2 – very far above normal
0.001 mW/m² – within normal limits

This way, we can at least inform a portion of the many municipalities in B.C.  

3)    If you’ve written to Dr. Perry Kendall (our ill-informed Provincial Health Officer), the Cancer Society or Health Canada about RF and have mentioned cancer as a risk, chances are you have been told that the incidence of cancer is decreasing, that there is no increase in brain tumors in Canada.  Really? That seems odd when there are so many obituaries and articles about young people, even children, suffering from cancers, including brain cancer. I never heard of such things until within the last 15 years or so. I’ve sent articles from the USA and European Brain Tumor associations in which they say the incidence of brain cancers is increasing dramatically, so I decided to check to see what the BC Brain Tumour Association said – and I was flabbergasted.

Currently, the Canadian medical system does not track statistics on primary brain tumours. Complete and accurate data is needed to facilitate the research that will lead to a better understanding of this disease and improved diagnosis and treatment.

http://www.braintumour.ca/2494/brain-tumour-facts

Why not?  This certainly is something any Oncologist would have in his files. The Foundation is asking for donations to gather this info. It should be available as part of the medical files.

This allows the Cancer Society and the telecoms to say that incidence of cancers is decreasing, with no specifics to refute them.

What do Oncologists think about this?

Another shocking admission. I don’t know what data could be used, since none is gathered, but….

Update – January 2017

International data suggests that Canada has one of the highest incidence rates for brain cancer in the world. Canada has not systematically recorded incidence rates for all primary brain tumours, traditionally omitting non-malignant brain tumours. An estimated two-thirds of all non-malignant brain tumours are not reported in cancer registries and yet they can be just as devastating as malignant ones. This must change in Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada’s 35th anniversary milestone year. Learn more about this updated statistic in our press release [http://www.braintumour.ca/Userfiles/documents/MediaReleases/2017-MediaReleases/2017%20BTFC%20MediaRelease%2035thAnniversary%20Jan%2030%202017.pdf & http://www.braintumour.ca/87/press-releases]dated January 30, 2017, to mark Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada’s 35th Anniversary.

Subject: Warnings re the 5G protocol …

Dear Sir or Madam,

In light of all the recent dialogue concerning the impending implementation of 5G, again without invoking the Precautionary Principle, perhaps some caution ought to be taken by the authorities here in Canada as is happening in Europe and elsewhere around the globe.

It is no secret that Health Canada’s Safety Code 6 is an international joke and falls far short of acceptable levels of non-thermal radiation that are enjoyed by most members of the EU and other nations. It has been accepted worldwide that there are adverse biological effects produced by the invisible smog of wireless radiation with which North Americans are bombarded on a daily basis. Even the WHO has acknowledged that EMF is a Class 2B carcinogen but a growing number of medical and scientific researchers are advocating the risk be elevated to a Class 1A hazard! The deleterious activity allowed by those who insist that wireless radiation is safe, like BC’s Public Health Officer Perry Kendall, has a grossly negative impact on young, developing children and on the elderly which is why many nations are removing and banning Wi-Fi from public schools and medical facilities and other public venues such as libraries and parks where older folk and children congregate.

One wonders what the well-kept “secret” is that the rest of the world understands but the US and Canadian authorities and government officials seem to be unaware? I$ it really po$$ible that corporate lobbying and influence might have a nefariou$ part to play in this lack of dynamics?

Please do the right thing for your constituents and do your part to STOP this madness.

Respectfully,
Edgar Murdoch

Ed Miliband smart meter energy scheme blows a fuse

A new study warns of ‘risk of descending into chaos’

Jonathan Leake, Environment Editor

Many homeowners say they have no idea what smart meters are for

Ed Miliband’s greatest — and perhaps only — legacy is going horribly wrong, say researchers investigating Britain’s £12.5bn smart meter programme.

In 2009 the former climate change secretary ordered Britain’s energy giants to rip out the existing meters in people’s homes and replace them with “smart meters”. These allow homeowners to see how much energy they are using — for example, when they boil a kettle — with the aim of encouraging them to use less.

However, research to be published this week shows that, with the meters already fitted in about 7.7m homes, the reality is turning out to be very different.

“The costs are high at £200-£300 per home and the energy savings are tiny,” said Benjamin Sovacool, professor of energy policy at Sussex University.

Smart meters measure gas and power use and transmit the data to home digital display units, so consumers can monitor consumption. They also send the data to energy suppliers so there is no need to send somebody to read the meter.

Sovacool found, however, that the programme risks descending into chaos. “This is the largest government information technology project in history. It means installing 104m pieces of new equipment when counting separate electricity and gas meters, display monitors and wireless networks. It is so behind schedule that to hit the target of national coverage by 2020, suppliers would need to install 40,000 smart meters per day.”

Sovacool and his colleagues also found that the £100m now set aside to promote the programme has made it into one of the world’s biggest advertising campaigns — but many people still have no idea what the meters are for. “The technology has generated ‘confusion and resistance’ in many households. There is little awareness of the benefits or of how the technology works,” he said.

That problem could go right to the top. When asked to name ministers who had had a smart meter installed, the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy was unable to name one.

Some consumers warn that they do not work at all. Stewart Amos, 70, a retired chartered surveyor who lives near Chelmsford, Essex, had smart meters installed by Ovo Energy. When he later switched to EOn, the meters stopped sending data on his energy use. By the time the meters were checked by a meter reader, he had accumulated bills of £470. “It’s been a nightmare and I’d advise everyone to reject these meters,” he said.

The energy department said: “Smart meters will end estimated billing, provide real-time information about energy use and help cut bills. There are 7.7m meters installed and 80% of people recommend them. They are a vital upgrade to our energy system and will cut bills by £300m in 2020 alone.”

Subject: Fw: UBCM Convention – 5G Microcell Moratorium

Re:  UBCM Convention, 5G Microcell Moratorium

Dear Mayor Westbroek and Members of Council,

Recently, the telecom industry introduced biologically untested, 5G microcell towers to British Columbia, which are mounted on power poles, directly in front of people’s homes, often only a few feet away from bedrooms.
What are they? Are they safe? Please read on.

California is leading the resistance against 5G microcell transmitters, outside of homes and businesses.
So far, nearly 300 cities joined in opposition of biologically untested, 5G microcell tower technology.  

Sept. 13, 2017: Scientists and Doctors Demand Moratorium on 5G
Increased radiation from cell towers poses potential risks, say scientists from around the world

“(Örebro, Sweden) Over 180 scientists and doctors from 35 countries sent a decleration to officials of the European Commission today, demanding a moratorium on the increase of cell antennas for planned 5G expansion. Concerns over health effects from higher radiation exposure include potential neurological impacts, infertility, and cancer.

“The wireless industry is trying to deploy technology that may have some very real unintended harmful consequences,” explains one of the organizers of the letter, Lennart Hardell, MD, PhD, Associate Professor, Department of Oncology, Faculty of Medicine and Health, Örebro University, Örebro, Sweden. “Scientific studies from years ago along with many new studies are consistently identifying harmful human health impacts when wireless products are tested properly using conditions that reflect actual exposures. With hazards at those exposures, we are very concerned that the added exposure to 5G radiation could result in tragic, irreversible harm.”

3 pages of excellent information!  Learn of the scientists’ impressive credentials, page 4-10, (click embedded links for more info)

Excerpt:
“We the undersigned, more than 180 scientists from 36 countries, recommend a moratorium on the rollout of the fifth generation, 5G, for telecommunication until potential hazards for human health and the environment have been fully investigated by scientists independent from industry.

5G will substantially increase exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMF) on top of the 2G, 3G, 4G, Wi-Fi, etc. for telecommunications already in place.  RF-EMF has been proven to be harmful for humans and the environment.”

Excerpt:
Human, animal, and plant life is controlled by naturally occurring electromagnetic fields and signals.  With their extremely low to very high frequencies, technical electromagnetic fields can interfere strongly with cell communication and metabolism.  Initially, the body’s natural healing capacity, in its attempt to maintain homeostasis, will correct imbalances through finely tuned control mechanisms.  Prolonged electromagnetic stress, however, may lead to a chronic impairment of this important homeostatic response and result in disease.

BC has become industries’ 5G microcell testing ground, city councils are bypassed, and no one consented to this uncontrolled biological experiment!

Placements of 5G microwave transmitters in front of people’s homes, without informed consent, is a grotesque violation of human and civil rights!

5G microwave frequencies are also employed in weaponry, by Russia, China and the U.S. military, causing instant debilitation of it’s victims.

Do not be fooled by the apparent smaller size of microcells!
We monitored numerous microcells in one of Vancouver Islands smaller cities, over several days, using a digital RF meter.  All microcells we monitored, registered very high microwave radiation readings, considerably higher than conventional cell towers, some recorded as high as: 105.1000 mW/m2 – only a few feet away from bedrooms!
This is 105 times higher than ‘very far above normal’ of the Austrian Medical Association EMF Guideline!

Page 9, EMF Guideline: 1.000 mW/m² – very far above normal . . . 0.001 mW/m² – within normal limits

Every microcell we metered, exceeded the recommendations of the Austrian Medical Association, EMF Guideline, by a considerable margin.

The Precautionary Principle (UNESCO) adopted 2005: ”When human activities may lead to morally unacceptable harm that is scientifically plausible, but uncertain actions shall be taken to avoid or diminish that harm.”

Please educate yourself on latest science, human rights issues, and scientifically outdated safety codes, which are well documented in this 3 page Scientists and Doctors Appeal – for a 5G Moratorium, before attending the upcoming UBCM convention.

For quick oversight and photographs of 5G microcells, please view the attachment.

Please support a Moratorium on 5G Microcells, at the upcoming UBCM convention.
