Official E-Petition to the Canadian House of Commons to Stop 5G

Please sign this e-petition (E-2141) to the Canadian House of Commons “to enact a moratorium, or temporary halt, on implementation of 5G communication technology across Canada until an independent House of Commons-mandated team of qualified researchers has proven that the dangers of 5G technology to human, animal and environmental health are in fact minimal and have no serious consequences.”

The Push Back against 5G in Canada

There is a Federal Election coming up. This is an important time to raise issues with candidates. The 5G roll-out is one that will affect all of Canada, from our citizens to our ecosystems.

Here is an encouraging article by Paul H. LeMay about the push back against 5G in Vancouver published in Common Ground which is a 100% Canadian owned independent publication. “It is Western Canada’s biggest and best-loved monthly magazine dedicated to health, wellness, ecology and personal growth.”

5G… Coming to a lamp post near you

Article EHS 5G Kingston Sep19-18 illustration_LI (3)As the telecom industry rushes to roll out 5G for smart cities and the “internet of things”, experts are sounding the alarm. 5G infrastructure will require a massive density of cell towers called “small-cell towers”. These will be mounted on lamp posts or utility poles every few houses apart with the goal of covering all neighbourhoods.1

In order to expand the infrastructure for 5G, industry is demanding policy makers loosen current health guidelines for electromagnetic radiation (EMR). Canada’s are already some of the least protective standards in the world. And while one might think there are rigorous safety tests for new technologies, there have been zero pre-market safety tests on 5G technology.

There is cause for concern. Over 180 scientists and doctors are appealing to the EU for a moratorium on 5G until “potential hazards for human health and the environment have been fully investigated by scientists independent from industry”.2

One of the most recent studies on cell phone radiation – the most expensive to date – has changed the conversation around cell safety. In the $25M National Toxicology Program study, scientists were not expecting to find evidence of harm. What they found instead was “clear evidence” of carcinogenicity, verified by a rigorous peer review panel.3

The Bioinitiative Report 2012 summarizes 1000’s of studies showing biological harm from EMR and urges new precautionary measures be taken by policy makers.3 At least 244 experts have appealed to the UN and WHO for more protective standards for EMR and wireless technology in the face of increasing evidence of harm.5

We are electromagnetic beings; the electromagnetic soup in which we are living results in exposures to human-made radiation a quintillion times (1018 X) greater than we experienced just 10 years ago.6

The development of the internet of things and 5G will massively increase this again. Our bodies did not evolve in this kind of environment. These exposures can cause oxidative stress and production of free radicals, hormone disruption, DNA damage and excess calcium flooding our cells – some of the known harmful effects.7 People in our community have already become ill suffering from a condition called electrohypersensitivity (EHS). People with EHS can experience rashes, headaches, sleep disturbances, nausea, tinnitus, heart arrhythmias, anxiety, behaviour problems, and many other symptoms.8

Kingstonians are not helpless as we wait for policy to catch up with science. There are communities which are mobilizing to halt the 5G rollout. Through an “urgency ordinance” the City Council of Mill Valley (near San Francisco) voted unanimously this month to effectively block deployments of 5G wireless towers in the City’s residential areas after receiving letters of concern from 1% of the population.9 Additionally, the US Conference of Mayors has announced they will sue the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) if they eliminate local control over 5G small cell tower and infrastructure installation.10

Safer alternatives are being proposed by “Connected Communities” (connected-communities.ca) that include delivering high speed fibre-optic internet to communities and provide more secure, community-owned services. Let’s get in the driver’s seat, slow down, and proceed only with safe technology.

Will the City of Kingston, who announced their “smart-city” pilot project with zero public consultation, choose to consult residents and engage in a meaningful discourse about 5G? Our health might depend on it.

Andrea Loken is a community activist writing for Kingstonians for Safe Technology (K4ST), a local advocacy group for safe technology.

EMF Health Summit – Online and FREE Sept 18-24

Sign up here: https://emfhealthsummit.com/go-2/

Are you concerned about the ocean of EMFs we’re drowning in (cell phones, Wifi, smart meters, Bluetooth, and even common household appliances)? Scientists are already sounding the alarm about the health dangers posed to you and your family…and 5G is just around the corner!

Cancers, brain tumors, Alzheimer’s, heart problems, asthma, depression, headaches, memory loss, and chronic inflammation along with other health conditions are all associated with common, low-level EMF exposure.

Speak Up for the Kids

We have started this blog to engage with the Kingston and surrounding community about developments regarding the safe use of technology involving electromagnetic radiation (EMR or EMFs).

Today, we have many amazing technologies that bring convenience, connectivity and entertainment to levels we couldn’t imagine 10 years ago. With these technology come downsides, including potential harm to human health.

We will follow developments federally, provincially, with the City of Kingston, and school boards in the area, including private schools. We will provide links to evidence-based resources and a contact page to connect with others in our community with similar concerns.

We hope to raise awareness, open dialogue, and empower each other to take action for the future of our health – especially the kids.

Thank you for visiting our page!
