1)    A physician in Arizona is threatened with jail in front of her patients, many of whom are sensitive, for refusing to allow installation of a bank of smeters. What on earth is happening with justice and empathy for the sake of greed and profit?





“I explained to APS that I personally have experienced serious health problems with a smart meter at my home that had to be removed. For this reason, I was granted a medical exemption for my office when I purchased the building 6 years ago. At that time they placed non-transmitting digital meters, which are currently working fine and they have access to. I explained that my business is taking care of many patients with extreme chemical and electrical sensitivities and the room where I care for these patients is literally 3 feet away from where they would place these 3 “smart meters”. They still refused. This standoff continued outside my building in full view of many of my patients. The police who had threatened me with arrest were on the phone and received approval from their legal department to arrest me under AS 40-431, even though I know now that this statute only applies to blocking the reading of the meters, which I was not, and does not apply to exchanging meters.”




2)    An article written by a good friend, Susan Foster, that I shared before, but is well-worth sharing again. We need to remind ourselves and our politicians that it’s about our/their children and grandchildren.  The telecom industry is guilty, as is the tobacco industry, of knowing their products are dangerous and continuing to sell them, especially aiming them at the kids.


Cell Tower Hypocrisy: Rescuing Firefighters Not Kids


“The executive’s wife told me she would point out a few faux metal palm trees to me, yet cautioned once I started recognizing these tall metal conduits for radiation from one point to another, I would never stop seeing them. Data was carried on the back of microwaves, she explained, and they could penetrate every living thing – plant, animal. and human.

I asked if she had any science to support this. “Yes,” was her one syllable response. How do I get my hands on the studies, I wanted to know. She reassured me it would be taken care of, and then asked me to tell no one we had talked. Her husband’s job was at risk.

“Some of my husband’s colleagues have had brain cancer. It feels beyond coincidence. They all know at some level it’s dangerous, but they’re making so much money.” She paused, “It’s the children I’m most worried about.” I nodded in agreement about the children. More information was shared before I followed my dog out of the shadows. I struggled to assimilate what I had just heard. The industry knew this stuff caused cancer and they were still permitting cell towers for neighborhoods?”



3)    Below in Letters is an email sent from an ally in the US who has gathered and shared many significant reports on the neurological effects of exposure to microwave radiation. This is information that should be shared widely because of the dramatically increasing effects, which include autism, alzheimer’s, brain cancer.

4)    ISED (formerly Industry Canada), like the FCC does not monitor transmitters to ensure they are not exceeding the extremely high levels of microwave radiation allowed by Safety Code 6. They leave the monitoring to the companies (fox- henhouse analogy is appropriate). A few years ago I recall someone measuring RF in several sites in Toronto and found them in violation, but nothing happens. This is bad enough when the cell transmitter is a few hundred feet away (remember studies show elevated cancer rates within 400-500 meters), but now with the microcells the transmitters, and there most likely will be multiple transmitters in each microcell,  will be only a few yards away from when you sleep and live.

In 2014, One In 10 U.S. Cell/Grid Towers Violated RF Radiation Rules; Telecom Companies, Elected Officials Determined To Add Millions More — This Is 5G


“From RFSafe.com in 2014:  “WSJ Reports One in 10 Cell Phone Towers Violate RF Radiation Safety Rules

  1. According to 6 engineers who examined more than 5,000 sites, “one in 10 sites violated the rules”. In 2014, that was 30,000.
  2. Cell tower carriers were not being held accountable for the health risk caused by unsafe cell phone tower installation”

Anxiety and ADHD have been increasing at alarming rates in children:

A 2016 study found altered brain structure in college students who were addicted to mobile phone use.  Decreased brain grey matter volume and abnormal white matter integrity were found via functional magnetic resonance images (fMRI).   https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fpsyg.2016.00597/full


Below are 3 studies showing effect of Wi-Fi and cell phones on anxiety, neurodegeneration, and/or learning.

Study showed that “long-term exposure of 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi may lead to adverse effects such as neurodegenerative diseases originated from the alteration of some miRNA expression. Results were statistically significant.  Long Term exposure [24 hours a day for 1 year] to 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi radiation can alter expression of some of the miRNAs such as miR-106b-5p (adj p * _ 0.010) and miR-107 (adj p * _ 0.005). We observed that mir 107 expression is 3.3 times and miR-106b-5p expression is 3.65 times lower in the exposure group than in the control group. “

Rats (age 30 days, 120 ¡ 5 g) were exposed to 900 MHz radio waves (cell phone) at an average SAR of 0.99 W/kg by means of a mobile hand set for 4 hours per day for 15 days. [Cell phones sold in the US are not to exceed a SAR of 1.6W/kg]  “A significant change in behavior, i.e., more anxiety and poor learning was shown by test animals as compared to controls and sham group. A significant change in level of antioxidant enzymes and nonenzymatic antioxidants, and increase in lipid peroxidation were observed in test rats. Histological examination showed neurodegenerative cells in hippocampal sub regions and cerebral cortex.  Discussion: Thus our findings indicate extensive neurodegeneration on exposure to radio waves. Increased production of reactive oxygen species due to exhaustion of enzymatic and non-enzymatic antioxidants and increased lipid peroxidation are indicating extensive neurodegeneration in selective areas of CA1, CA3, DG, and cerebral cortex. This extensive neuronal damage results in alterations in behavior related to memory and learning.”


“A neuronal damage of the kind described here may not have immediate demonstrable consequences, but in the long run it may result in reduced brain reserve capacity that might be unveiled by other late neuronal diseases. We cannot exclude the possibility that after some decades of daily (often) use, a whole generation of users may suffer from the negative effects, perhaps as early as in middle age.”

The study clearly indicates that exposure of rats to microwave radiation of 2.45 GHz leads to detrimental changes in brain leading to lowering of learning and memory and expression of anxiety behavior in rats along with fall in brain antioxidant enzyme systems.”

1)    Thanks to Kate Kheel for sending in strong, passionate letters from Dr. Kostoff, written to the Maryland legislature regarding bills granting telecoms license to install microcells and 5G transmitters with limited/no  local input or authority.  One is below in which he refers to the one attached.



“By comparison, our existing cell towers and other wireless transmitting devices are essentially assault weapons firing on our schools, our commercial and government buildings, and our residences, 24/7/52.  The ‘bullets’ they fire are not lead, but rather are packets of non-ionizing radiofrequency radiation (RFR).  In the long-term, they are far more deadly than their lead counterparts because they will impact most of the population, as my EMF health effects book chapter and attached letter show.”

2)    BC Hydro’s mess will end up doubling the rates for electricity the way it’s going now. The Liberal created this problem with deceptive accounting and pushing expensive unnecessary projects like Site C and smeters.  And the NDP does not have the nerve to change course.  This debacle will hang around their necks as Hydro is sold off to cover the debts.


What You Need to Know About BC Hydro’s Financial ‘Mess’ and the Site C Dam

DeSmog Canada caught up with Eoin Finn, a former partner at KPMG, one of the world’s largest accounting and consulting firms, to find out. Finn is also a director of the Pacific Electricity Ratepayers Association.

Are you surprised by yesterday’s decision to increase hydro rates, after the NDP promised to freeze them?

Not at all. The financial condition of BC Hydro is dire. The $140 million — that a three per cent rate increase would give them — is the first step in trying to put BC Hydro back together again. For the government to make that promise was extremely rash and I think that they at this stage realize how dire the situation is at BC Hydro.

The BCUC said that even the three per cent rate hike won’t cover its cost. What does that mean for BC Hydro customers?

It means they have to raise the rates. To put hydro back in shape in any decent fiscal condition is going to require that BC Hydro double its rates in the next 15 years.



3)    President Trump, There’s No Love In 5G Small Cell Towers Being Installed Everywhere — Even Dr. Oz Seems Concerned

President Trump is known for making many colorful and sometimes insensitive statements.  Despite this, he still occasionally speaks very freely about creating new policies based on love.

There is no love involved with elected officials passing state and federal laws that allow telecom companies to install 5G small cell towers all over the U.S. including in front of homes, in public rights of ways, in historical districts, and pretty much everywhere else.  Many Americans have been fighting these bills.

Subj: Maryland Legislative Proposals to Mandate Implementation of Small Cell Towers/5G


The Maryland legislature has proposed Senate and House Bills (SB 1188 and HB 1767) that would significantly impair the ability of municipalities to regulate the siting of small cellular antennas and related infrastructure.  They would preempt local authority regarding height of poles, size of equipment, amount of fees, and other critical factors that would affect quality of life issues in municipalities.  These Bills would convert an intrinsically local issue into a state issue.  Most of all, they would be a major contributing factor to the onset of myriad serious diseases.  I have attached a letter I recently sent to the Maryland legislature in opposition to both of these Bills.


The health issue related to these small cell towers is central, and needs to be placed in proper context.  Two weeks ago, a lone gunman opened fire in a school in Parkland, FL, killing 17 and wounding 14.  This horrific event sparked outrage among politicians, the media, and citizens across the USA.  It is the latest in a series of such mass killing events.  From 1982-2018, it is estimated that such mass murders resulted in the deaths of over 800 people, an average of about twenty-five per year over that period.



By comparison, our existing cell towers and other wireless transmitting devices are essentially assault weapons firing on our schools, our commercial and government buildings, and our residences, 24/7/52.  The ‘bullets’ they fire are not lead, but rather are packets of non-ionizing radiofrequency radiation (RFR).  In the long-term, they are far more deadly than their lead counterparts because they will impact most of the population, as my EMF health effects book chapter and attached letter show.


Where is the outrage of the media on these fully automatic and continuous RFR-based assault weapons relentlessly attacking our schools and most of our population, 24/7/52?  Over time, these RFR-based assault weapons will inflict orders of magnitude more suffering and premature deaths than the mass gun-based shootings ever would. Why isn’t the damage inflicted by these RFR-based assault weapons discussed at the top of every media front page?


Where is the outrage of our local, state, and Federal politicians over proposals to greatly enhance the power of these RFR-based assault weapons by mandating rapid implementation of millions of 5G cell towers throughout our population?  I am hearing impassioned pleas by members of Congress to reduce and restrict the numbers of gun-based assault weapons throughout society in order to to reduce the probability of these mass killings.  Where are their similarly impassioned pleas to reduce the far greater danger from RFR-based assault weapons?


Where is the outrage of the general population and the students on having been subjected to these RFR ‘bullets’ in the past from 2G and 3G technology, in the present from the addition of 4G technology, and potentially in the future from the addition of 5G technology?

I applaud the demonstrating of our citizens, especially the students, against the gun-based violence in the schools.  Why are they not doing similar, if not greater, demonstrating against these RFR-based assault weapons we euphemistically call cell towers?  These RFR-based assault weapons have resulted, are resulting, and will certainly result in producing far more suffering and premature deaths than the horrific mass gun-based shootings ever will.


As I point out in the attached letter, 5G has (for all practical purposes) never had anything resembling credible safety testing performed.  Yet, we are deluged with proposals from local, state, and Federal officials to remove any impediments to accelerated implementation of millions of these 5G-transmitting small cell towers throughout the USA.

How would these politicians react if one of the major airlines introduced a fleet of new transport planes that had never been flight tested?  Would they participate in the inaugural flights?  Would they volunteer members of their family to participate in the inaugural flights?  Analogous to what they are proposing for 5G and its infrastructure, would they mandate that their constituents participate in the inaugural flights?  If not, why are they willing to mandate the imposition of 5G and its infrastructure on their constituents?

In fact, the premier biomedical literature tells us in no uncertain terms that these RFR-based assault weapons are extremely dangerous to human health above some relatively low RFR threshold exposures.  These results are obtained despite the conduct of most RFR health impact studies under conditions most favorable to minimizing adverse health impacts of RFR.

Implementation of these 5G/small cell tower proposals at the local, state, or Federal level should be opposed to the maximum extent possible!

Towards 5G communication systems: Are there health implications? posted Feb 28/18

 Written and shared by Sharon Noble, Director, Coalition to Stop Smart Meters www.stopsmartmetersbc.com 

1)    A call for more studies into health effects of milliwave technology after some serious health effects have been found.  And a call for precautionary principle to be implemented.

Towards 5G communication systems: Are there health implications?

“Abstract The spread of radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMF) is rising and health effects are still under investigation. RF-EMF promote oxidative stress, a condition involved in cancer onset, in several acute and chronic diseases and in vascular homeostasis. Although some evidences are still controversial, the WHO IARC classified RF-EMF as “possible carcinogenic to humans”, and more recent studies suggested reproductive, metabolic and neurologic effects of RF-EMF, which are also able to alter bacterial antibiotic resistance. In this evolving scenario, although the biological effects of 5G communication systems are very scarcely investigated, an international action plan for the development of 5G networks has started, with a forthcoming increment in devices and density of small cells, and with the future use of millimeter waves (MMW). Preliminary observations showed that MMW increase skin temperature, alter gene expression, promote cellular proliferation and synthesis of proteins linked with oxidative stress, inflammatory and metabolic processes, could generate ocular damages, affect neuro-muscular dynamics. Further studies are needed to better and independently explore the health effects of RF-EMF in general and of MMW in particular. However, available findings seem sufficient to demonstrate the existence of biomedical effects, to invoke the precautionary principle, to define exposed subjects as potentially vulnerable and to revise existing limits. An adequate knowledge of pathophysiological mechanisms linking RF-EMF exposure to health risk should also be useful in the current clinical practice, in particular in consideration of evidences pointing to extrinsic factors as heavy contributors to cancer risk and to the progressive epidemiological growth of noncommunicable diseases.”



2)    The industry is pushing in many places to be allowed to install their microcells on public property without any restrictions and paying small amounts or none at all for the privilege, just as they are doing in BC. Does anyone know if Telus is paying any municipalities for use of our land to irradiate us?   In Maryland they are trying to get bills passed to eliminate any protest.

3)     Langley farm destroyed due to fire apparently caused by an overheated cell phone. Laptops, cell phones, etc. need to be on hard surfaces (non-combustible is best) when being charged. Being on a softer surface like a chair or bed can cause overheating because air cannot circulate around it.  Devices with lithium batteries, whether ion or metal, explode when overheated. Smeters can overheat when in the hot summer sun or in a garage/storage area where temps are increased.

“A B.C. couple are demanding Apple pay $600,000 in uninsured losses after they were forced to close their farm business following a devastating house fire that they claim was sparked by a faulty iPhone.”




Even e-cigarettes’ lithium batteries are exploding when heated from being in a pocket.

“Exploding e-Cigarettes Are a Growing Danger to Public Health Whatever their physiological effects, the most immediate threat of these nicotine-delivery devices comes from a battery problem called thermal runaway”




4)    Major environmental court decision – an injunction stops pesticide spraying in California.  Many of the excuses given by industry, the problems, etc. as well as the concerns that led to this decision are similar to microwave radiation. This could give momentum to the anti-wireless radiation people down there, which could really help us.


California Court Ruling Ends Decades of State Pesticide Spraying

“The judge has told the state that harmful pesticides simply can’t be sprayed indiscriminately, without robust consideration of impacts on people, animals and water,” said Bill Allayaud, California director of government affairs for the Environmental Working Group. “The ruling also affirms that Californians have the right to know about pesticides being sprayed around them and the ability to challenge spraying that endangers public health and natural resources.”

Video exposing EHS in South Africa posted Feb 27/18

Written and shared by Sharon Noble, Director, Coalition to Stop Smart Meters www.stopsmartmetersbc.com 

1) An excellent video from So. Africa about the increase in number of people suffering EHS due to the proliferation of wireless devices. The doctor interviewed in the film says that EHS is recognized as a medical condition, that there is a code for it in the ICD-10 (International Classification of Diseases).  I was able to find one for “ radio wave sickness and electromagnetic hypersensitivity but it  is unclear if this is a formal recognition of EHS for medical treatment.   https://www.reddit.com/r/Electromagnetics/comments/454vwn/rws_ehs_diagnosis_icd10_diagnosis_codes_for_radio/   I will do some more digging. If anyone has knowledge of these codes or finds more, please share. Send to me at dsnoble@shaw.ca

2) Attached is a copy of an update sent by the NDP to homes in my area. Notice not one word about Site C. Are they afraid to remind people about this horrible continuation of a Liberal position?  We  won’t forget, just as we cannot forget about their recanting their opposition to the smeter program and to the opt out fees.  Most likely every home in BC got a similar flyer. Did any mention Site C or is it against NDP policy now to even mention it?

3) Good recuperative sleep is necessary to ward off the harm and the exposures done to our bodies while awake.  Exposure to EMR/EMF has been shown to reduce melatonin which is a hormone needed for this good sound sleep. This article about the need for sleep recommends no technology in the bedroom. Better yet, no electricity in the bedroom. If possible, shut it off at the circuit box.

        “Culpin’s tips for ensuring good sleep include avoiding heavy or spicy food for two to three hours before bedtime, using blackout blinds to make your bedroom darker or an eyemask, avoiding naps after 5pm and establishing a regular wind-down routine, including going to bed at roughly the same time every night, including at weekends, and having no technology in the bedroom.”

4) A review of cancers in the military for those exposed to radar and communications equipment resulted in a call for microwave radiation to be re-classified as a human carcinogen.

Radio frequency radiation-related cancer: assessing causation in the occupational/military setting

        “We reexamine whether radio frequency radiation (RFR) in the occupational and military settings is a human carcinogen.


We extended an analysis of an already-reported case series of patients with cancer previously exposed to whole-body prolonged RFR, mainly from communication equipment and radar. We focused on hematolymphatic (HL) cancers. We used analysis by percentage frequency (PF) of a cancer type, which is the proportion of a specific cancer type relative to the total number of cancer cases. We also examined and analyzed the published data on three other cohort studies from similar military settings from different countries…

Overall, the epidemiological studies on excess risk for HL and other cancers together with brain tumors in cellphone users and experimental studies on RFR and carcinogenicity make a coherent case for a cause-effect relationship and classifying RFR exposure as a human carcinogen (IARC group 1).”



5) Below is an email from someone who reacted to a new Telus modem that was installed along with the “fiber optic system”. Of course my advice is to get hardwired. If internet access is needed in multiple rooms, then getting a wired homeplug will eliminate the need for wifi.

Subject: 5G wifi

I live in Mission BC, we were having problems with our internet connection, so we had Telus hook up the new fiber optic system into the suite. Thought you would be interested in what happened: the contractor installed a 5 gigahertz wifi transmitter to send the signal across the room and so my room mate would be able to access data without running up her phone bill. Within 1/2 an hour, I noticed I was getting an intense headache, so bad I could barely think and realized it must be coming from the new wifi, so I disconnected it and within 1/2 an hour the headache was almost gone. I called the contractor and asked him to bring the old transmitter back, which he did the next day. In discussing the situation with him, he told me that the old transmitter operates at 4.5GHz, which I don’t really notice; also that the 5GHz trans. signal doesn’t travel as far as the 4.5GHz signal and that the 5GHz trans. can handle faster data transmission. The thing that caught my attention was that the signal coming through the new fiber optics is only as fast as the speed rating on the old wifi trans., so installing a faster wifi trans. is of no use or benefit whatsoever!

New Study Links Cellphone Radiation to Heart and Brain Tumors posted Feb 22/18

Written and shared by Sharon Noble, Director, Coalition to Stop Smart Meters www.stopsmartmetersbc.com 

1)    Dr. Mercola continues to share information about the dangers of microwave radiation with his readers.  He also provides many excellent suggestions for reducing exposure.


New Study Links Cellphone Radiation to Heart and Brain Tumors


  • “In 2011, the International Agency for Research on Cancer, the cancer research arm of the World Health Organization, declared cellphones a Group 2B “possible carcinogen”
  • Two government-funded studies bring renewed attention to this link. The studies, in which 3,000 animals were exposed to the type of radiation emitted by 2G and 3G cellphones, are said to be the most extensive to date
  • Male rats were more likely to develop heart tumors, while female rats and newborns exposed to high levels of radiation during pregnancy and lactation were more likely to have low body weight
  • DNA damage and damage to heart tissue was also observed in both male and female rats but not mice. Other types of tumors occurred in both types of animals, including brain, prostate, liver and pancreatic tumors
  • The primary hazard of cellphone radiation is not brain cancer but rather systemic cellular and mitochondrial damage, which threatens health in general and can contribute to any number of health problems and chronic diseases”

Dear Editor,



Doctor raises health impacts of Cell Towers – by Robert Barron


International Cell Tower Radiation Warnings:


It is rare that medical doctors like Dr. Stephen Faulkner, have the courage to speak out against the billion dollar Telecom industry, who keeps hiding behind Canada’s notoriously outdated Safety Code 6.

Our health system is brought to its knees, with half the population on meds, fueling the opioid crisis, and a rapid rise in chronic and neurological diseases among children, despite organic foods and healthy living.

If there were more informed physicians like Dr. Faulkner, our communities would be much healthier places.


I invite anyone who values the health of their children more, than their beguiling wireless devices, to read the repeated warnings of the growing number of international doctors and scientists, from 41 nations, regarding the ubiquitous microwave radiation pollution we face 24/7, inside our homes and work places.  Take the time to read the long list of renown international scientists, listed at the end of this document, who are frantically waiving red flags in our faces.


Sept. 13, 2017- Scientists warn of potential serious health effects of 5G


(Health) Effects include increased cancer risk, cellular stress, increase in harmful free radicals, genetic damages, structural and functional changes of the reproductive system, learning and memory deficits, neurological disorders, and negative impacts on general well-being in humans. Damage goes well beyond the human race, as there is growing evidence of harmful effects to both plants and animals.


Thank you Mr. Barron for bringing this urgent public health issue, to the attention of the public.

Kind regards,

Marcus Schluschen

BCUC has not refuted one charge I made about smart meters posted Feb 15/18

Written and shared by Sharon Noble, Director, Coalition to Stop Smart Meters www.stopsmartmetersbc.com

Finally after 6 months of having “the staff review the information”, I received a response to my fire report in which I provided evidence that the smeters had caused fires, that BC Hydro had broken regulations, that the smeters had not passed certification that included all of the major components, that Len Gari’s paid for report was inaccurate, incomplete and use of it indicated a failure by BCUC to do its job.  The response at the first link and is amazing – BCUC has not refuted one charge I made. From this I can only conclude it is saying that my evidence is correct and that:

          1)    No agency is tracking fires;

2)    Regulations and laws are being broken with impunity, e.g. meters are being removed from the fire scene, electrical inspections are not being done;

3)    Reporting is haphazard at best;

4)    The meter is combustible, poorly designed, with critical components uncertified by any agency to be safe;

5)    BC Hydro did not perform its due diligence by having an independent electrical engineer inspect the meter for safety prior to signing the contract. Rather it accepted ITRON’s assurances;

6)    Smart meters have burned, melted and caused homes to burn. BC Hydro and BCUC both deny this is happening.

Their response indicates that they are willing to turn a blind eye and continue to stone-wall us even though lives and property are being put at risk.  My read of the response is that no one at BCUC even read the report or certainly they would have at least attempted to respond in a meaningful way.

They do manage to say a few things that are not true. For example BC Hydro and Fortis did not provide responses of a technical nature. http://www.stopsmartmetersbc.com/bc-hydro-response-to-bcuc-request-for-comment-on-ms-nobles-correspondence-re-smart-meter-fires-report-october-20-2017/

BC Hydro Response to BCUC Request for Comment on Ms. Noble’s Correspondence re Smart Meter Fires Report – October 20, 2017


BC Hydro does remove smeters from the scene of fires before the fire inspection is done, and often before the fire inspector or BC Safety Authority has arrived. Interesting how they continue to say this when I have provided reports from fire inspectors, BC Safety Authority and even firemen saying that BC Hydro routinely removes the smeter without obtaining the clearance required by law. 

BC Hydro told me that they do not inspect any failed meter, rather it is sent back to ITRON immediately for replacement.

They emphasize that the meters are compliant with Measurement Canada requirements – which pertain to accuracy only. Safety is not any component of MC’s testing.

ANSI 12’s and UL 2735’ s inadequacy are ignored. All smeters meet these weak standards – all of the smeters that have been involved in fires meet these standards.

UL’s protocol 2735 for certification DOES NOT include the remote disconnect switch. And I have asked several times for the results of the tests done by the NEETRAC and BC Hydro has refused to provide. How do we know that the testing was successful? Why won’t they share the results of the tests for the component that has been involved/caused so many fires?

All of these statements by BCUC are contrary to the evidence that I provided in my report. They didn’t care enough to look beyond what Hydro has told them.

Obviously I could go on and on. The response is filled with junk, but basically it does not refute a thing I’ve said. These meters have caused fires and will continue to cause fires. They should be recalled from our homes and it will be only through our loud and continued demand that these be removed, that the Clean Energy Act be changed, that changes will be made.

I hope you will read all of this, and help to spread the word. We need to think beyond writing letters and emails that will be ignored. Our politicians have shown they are interested in us only when they want our money or our vote. We need to be prepared to protest with sit-ins, picketing, rallies outside offices of the premier and MLAs.  Even 15-20 people willing to spend a few hours with signs, walking along the sidewalk outside the offices, letting local media know (have someone call anonymously and just ask if the newspaper knows what is going on – a large crowd outside Horgan’s constituency office, for example.)  If we could get people willing to devote a few hours we could do this.

5G and IoT: a Trojan horse posted Feb 14/18

1)    Dr. Paul Héroux, Ph.D., Professor of Electromagnetic Toxicology, Faculty of Medicine, McGill University warns about the dangers of 5G and reasons for the push.  There are no good reasons for this, and there are options that are so much better in every way.

5G and IoT: a Trojan horse

«The wireless industry dreams of deploying its new 5G (fifth generation) infrastructure in your neighbourhood soon, as it has begun doing in California. Boxes the size of a PC could be placed every 150 meters or so on utility poles, sometimes with small-refrigerator-sized boxes on the ground. 5G technology uses pulsed, millimeter-sized microwaves that are easily blocked by obstacles such as leaves, hence the need to install millions of cell signal boosters near homes.

The telecoms say this is the most efficient way to ease the digital congestion caused by audio-video streaming, whose global traffic, according to American giant Cisco, will be eleven times higher in 2018 than in 2014. Data would move through fibre optic cables, but rather than bringing these cables to your home, the last leg of the data’s journey would generally be wireless… As markets work, personal mobile phone subscriptions are more profitable than the higher speed fibre optic connections linked to desktops through your own router. »


2)    One last article about the huge increases in bills in Michigan since the introduction of ITRON smeters. Lawmakers are being flooded by complaints of bills doubling and more, with no explanation, often even after major changes were made to reduce usage. Just as Hydro told people, “it’s colder than last year”.

High energy bills frustrate public, lawmakers


3)    Tucker Carlson, surprisingly, is going after social media and high tech companies, equating their products with tobacco. Some founders admit they knew product was likely harmful, like an addictive drug.


Google is gathering info constantly on cell phone users even when the phone is in airplane mode. Just one example of the telecom/industry interest in using wireless devices in ways beyond the prime intention.  (Trojan horse, as per Dr. Heroux?)

A batch email I rec’d today re. Site C from the Sierra Club:

Dear Sharon,

Thank you for your ongoing support of the Peace River Valley. For some of you, this will be your first message directly from me and the Sierra Club BC team and I’d like to officially say, “Welcome to the Club!”

We are the oldest environmental organization in BC, and we’ve been part of every major conservation victory since 1969 including Clayoquot Sound, Carmanah Walbran, the Great Bear Rainforest and stopping the Enbridge pipeline.

You helped us lead the charge against Site C, despite the odds we faced. We didn’t do it because it was profitable or convenient, but because it was the right thing to do.  And together, we achieved many important campaign goals:

  • You drew UNESCO’s attention and created international pressure to stop Site C.
  • You made Site C an election issue – our video about how you’d be subsidizing the fracking industry with your hydro bills was viewed over 115,000 times!
  • You ensured Site C was reviewed by the BC Utilities Commission.

If you are like me, you found John Horgan’s announcement to continue construction of Site C heartbreaking. But the story didn’t end there.

Let me tell you about what’s happened since, and what’s happening now:

  • Over 400 of you attended or streamed the Site C Summit in Victoria in January. If you missed it, you can watch many of the recorded talks on YouTube. It was an incredibly inspiring gathering of minds, and it strongly reinforced what we know to be true: our provincial government absolutely made the wrong decision on Site C.
  • West Moberly and Prophet River First Nations are seeking an injunction to stop construction at the dam site based on Treaty Infringement.
  • Our federal government is facing an end of February deadline imposed by UNESCO’s World Heritage Committee to announce an action plan with an assessment of Site C’s impacts on Wood Buffalo National Park.
  • Geotechnical issues such as stabilizing the north bank of the river remain a serious threat to the cost and feasibility of completing the dam.

The strongest message we’ve heard since Horgan’s decision is that we must continue to show up for the people who are facing injustice. As you know, Site C is a glaring violation of Indigenous rights.

Sierra Club BC and I will continue to help raise the profile of court cases regarding Site C from Treaty 8 Nations in the Peace River Valley and downstream in the Peace-Athabasca Delta. I hope you will join us.

We look forward to getting to know you, and I invite you to get to know us better.

In the coming weeks, we’ll keep you updated on what you can do to hold our governments accountable on a terrible Site C decision and what else we’re doing to defend BC’s spectacular natural environment.

Thank you.

Microwave radiation should be classified as a carcinogen posted Feb 8/18

Written and shared by Sharon Noble, Director, Coalition to Stop Smart Meters www.stopsmartmetersbc.com

I realize this is an unusual update, but there is so much in and about this report that I couldn’t figure out how else to present it.

While I was gone, the draft of second portion of the largest cell phone radiation study ever done was released. This 10 year, $25 million study was done by the National Toxicology Program in the US.  The first section was released long before the rest was written because the researchers felt the results were significant enough to warrant immediate action to protect the public. This study is considered to be one of the most significant ever done, providing clear evidence that microwave radiation should be classified as a carcinogen.

Here is a discussion with one of the lead scientists of the study, from Dec. 2016.  At min. 41 Dr. Melnick states that the evidence exists in this study to justify a reclassification of microwave radiation to “probable carcinogen”, up from the current “possible”.


The industry and its bent scientists hit back, attempting to discredit it, as usual.

Dec 1, 2017

Microwave News
reported today that the vice-chair of the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP), Maria Feychting, has been trying to convince the scientific community to dismiss the $25 million cell phone cancer study conducted by the U.S. National Toxicology Program (NTP).

According to Microwave News, Feychting claimed at scientific meetings held in Germany and Sweden last month that the pathology analyses in the NTP study were not properly blinded. This issue was originally raised by an official reviewer of the study and was laid to rest in the NTP interim report [https://www.biorxiv.org/content/early/2016/06/23/055699] released in May, 2016.

Several researchers in the U.S. and Europe expressed their concerns to Microwave News about Feychting’s misguided efforts to undermine the credibility of the NTP cell phone study.

The Microwave News article reports that Feychting’s declaration of personal interests filed with ICNIRP is incomplete as she has not fully disclosed potential conflicts of interest due to her role in the Swedish COSMOS study which has industry funding.

For more information see Microwave News.



Dr. Melnick responded to Dr. Perry Kendall’s criticism of the NTP report, which was based primarily on industry’s misleading statements.


The second portion was expected to be equally significant, and would confirm serious DNA damage due to exposure to microwave radiation. Here is the conclusion as written in the draft report.



“Under the conditions of this 2-year whole-body exposure study, there was some evidence of carcinogenic activity of GSM-modulated cell phone RFR at 900 MHz in male Hsd:Sprague Dawley SD rats based on the incidences of malignant schwannoma in the heart. The incidences of adenoma or carcinoma (combined) in the prostate gland, malignant glioma and benign or malignant granular cell tumors in the brain, adenoma of the pars distalis in the pituitary gland, pheochromocytoma (benign, malignant, or complex combined) in the adrenal medulla, and pancreatic islet cell adenoma or carcinoma (combined) may have been related to cell phone RFR exposure. There was no evidence of carcinogenic activity of GSM-modulated cell phone RFR at 900 MHz in female Hsd:Sprague Dawley SD rats administered 1.5, 3, or 6 W/kg. There was some evidence of carcinogenic activity of CDMA- modulated cell phone RFR at 900 MHz in male Hsd:Sprague Dawley SD rats based on the incidences of malignant schwannoma in the heart.

The incidences of malignant glioma in the brain, adenoma of the pars distalis in the pituitary gland, and adenoma or carcinoma (combined) of the liver may have been related to cell phone RFR exposure. There was equivocal evidence of carcinogenic activity of CDMA-modulated cell phone RFR at 900 MHz in female Hsd:Sprague Dawley SD rats based on the incidences of malignant glioma in the brain and pheochromocytoma (benign, malignant, or complex combined) in the adrenal medulla.

Increases in nonneoplastic lesions in the heart, brain, and prostate gland of male rats, and of the heart, thyroid gland, and adrenal gland in female rats occurred with exposures to GSM cell phone RFR at 900 MHz. Increases in nonneoplastic lesions of the heart, brain, and prostate gland occurred in males, and of the brain in females exposed to CDMA cell phone RFR at 900 MHz.”



Because the first portion was released in May 2016 so dramatically,  showing evidence of increases in brain cancers and schwannomas of the heart,  many are questioning the wording of the current press release. Dr. Louis Slesin offers some possible reasons –


What Changed at NTP?

Same RF Cancer Data, Different Outlook

February 7, 2018

Why was the NTP so ambivalent about its cell phone cancer findings at the press conference last Friday when two years ago the same scientific evidence prompted a public health warning?



Some of the pathology numbers got tweaked since they were first released in 2016, but the changes were minor. It’s the same data set —but with a very different interpretation. The NTP mindset somehow shifted from we need to release this important new health data now to this is “not a high-risk situation.”

Who or what moved the NTP managers to change their outlook? There’s no shortage of suspects and suspicions”



And here are comments gathered by Kate Kheel:

  3. Link to transcript and recording of the 2018 NTP Telephone Press Conference:

and link to 2016 press conference by way of comparison:


  1. A bit disturbing but elucidating nonetheless:


John Bucher, Ph.D. who was the Associate Director of the NTP since 2007, was replaced in January, 2018 (merely a few weeks before the NTP Draft Results were released) by Dr. Brian Berridge. No reason was given.

Could this have something to do with why some of the conclusions seemed to have been diluted in this latest Draft Report?

Statement by John Bucher in 2016 when reporting on the Partial Findings of the NTP Study:

“Overall we feel that the tumors are, in fact, likely to be related to the [RFR] exposures.”

Amazing Article about FCC/ telecom threat posted Jan 14/18

Written and shared by Sharon Noble, Director, Coalition to Stop Smart Meters, www.stopsmartmetersbc.com

1)      An amazing article by Patricia Burke and the FCC’s/telecom’s threat to our safety and the safety of life as we know it.

FCC’s Ajit Pai: The Sacredness of Safety?

“The irony of the Pai family’s circumstances regarding lack of recognition of the “sacred” is that families, wives, and children have not been protected by the FCC in their own neighborhoods and homes since passage of the Telecom Act of 1996 Men and boys, the elderly, the medically vulnerable, honeybee pollinators, or any other aspect of human health and the
environment has not been protected either…

The FCC’s “guidelines” are the moral and ethical equivalent of going to the medicine cabinet and taking out every single medication, all at the same time, and giving an adult dose that has been tested on a military male only for short-term effects to every pregnant woman, infant, and child.”

 2)      From a colleague in Ontario. I hope everyone will consider writing CBC asking for more programs and providing more scientific info about RF and EHS.

Canadians claiming to have ‘electromagnetic hypersensitivity’ feel forced to escape modern life

“You can listen to the interview at the link below or on tomorrow’s CBC radio show, “Out in the Open” with Piya Chattopadhyay.
Please consider writing in to the show to express your opinions, share your own story, etc.  I think it is essential that CBC hears from all of us so they want to do more shows.  It could help us immensely.

I will be letting them know myself that they should have included a paragraph and link to the HESA review resolutions on the website and that an EHS medical expert should have been interviewed if they were going to be so biased towards Health Canada’s statements.  I will also be thanking them for doing the interview at all. ”

Subject: Karen Estrin, re wifi in hospitals

Dear Ms. Estrin,

Please do NOT install wifi in your hospitals.

Radio-frequency microwave electromagnetic radiation (RF MW EMR) from wireless devices is a Class 2B carcinogen according to WHO IARC in 2011; actually a known carcinogen since WWII when the Russians microwaved the US Embassy in Moscow and caused numerous cancers.  The US paid danger pay to their staff, but did not tell them why so many were becoming ill until they figured out how to do it better.

It’s a WorkSafe BC violation to expose employees to Class 2B carcinogens when safer options are available (reg. 5.58) and there is a long-standing WCB claim being fought in Victoria, where a teacher became EHS after the school installed wifi and he’s actually been on a hunger strike in front of the BC Legislature.  Other jurisdictions (Sweden, Italy, France, Alaska,
Australia, Maritimes) have already paid compensation for EHS.

RF MW EMR interferes with normal heart rhythm; I know personally four men who died of cardiac arrhythmia in high-wifi locations, ages 21 – 71.  None had previous heart conditions although all had some kind of chronic problem.

RF MW EMR also interferes with eg. insulin pumps, cardiac monitors, and other such devices supposedly designed to help patients, not kill them.

I myself am electrohypersensitive (EHS) as a result of mercury poisoning from dental amalgams, vaccines, and working in a toxic hospital lab environment for 29 years where open vials of mercury from broken instruments decorated work benches, topped off by an exterminator who used a banned commercial fungicide, CaloClor aka mercuric chloride, to kill carpenter ants in my house in March 1997.  I had chelation therapy (private pay) to remove mercury and other heavy metals; nonetheless, I am still EHS.  Symptoms include:  dizziness, vertigo, blurry vision, tinnitus aka Frey effect aka microwave hearing, itchy skin, dry eyes, extreme thirst, bladder irritation, short term memory loss/lapse.  In diabetics, it causes neuropathy, aggravates restless legs, and makes blood sugar difficult to regulate.

I was the first person (to my knowledge) in Canada to be accepted and paid CPP Disability for mercury poisoning and EHS.

So far I’ve been lucky and have not had arrhythmia related to EMR exposure that I know of, however, with the increasing use of smart meters and neighbourhood wifi, etc., I have been unable to sleep properly for three years, awake from 0200 – 0600, then dozing until 0900 hrs. (awake during the hours Big Telecom transmits most of its data).  In consultation with a Building Biologist, Katharina Gustavs, I recently purchased an RF shield for my bed, approx. $2,000 for a queen-sized bed, with cotton, silver and copper mesh fabric forming a Faraday cage over, under, and around the bed.  I slept a full night for the first time in three years in December and my mood, energy level, etc. has improved dramatically in the last month.

The brain cancer rate (not tracked by Health Canada) has risen so sharply with the increasing use of cell phones that the University of Calgary started its own brain cancer registry a couple of years ago.  I know three women, highly-educated, intelligent women, a close friend, my lover’s wife, and another friend’s wife, who died of metastatic bowel and pancreatic cancer after years of heavy laptop use, literally using laptops until the day they could no longer hold the computer on their laps and died horrible painful deaths in palliative care.

According to a Stats-Can representative, Lake Cowichan area has the highest rate of self-medicating undiagnosed illness in the province:  Teleglobe Canada’s Earth Station (satellite tracking antennas) is located at Youbou and sends EMR across the lake, literally microwaving the entire area.  You cannot get a clear AM radio signal in your car with an old analogue radio due to MW interference.  Ironically, my father helped design, build and install the first such antenna in the 1970’s under contract to NASA.

If you install wifi in your hospital, a publicly-funded institution, where will people such as myself go when we need emergency medical care?  I avoid all public buildings as it is, because I know how much EMR my body can tolerate, but if you also take away my right to medical care–where does that leave me and the other 50% of the population that is affected but doesn’t know what’s wrong?

Please rethink this decision.

We humans are endangering the entire planet, from infrastructure to life itself, in the name of convenience.  I would be pleased to give a presentation for anyone who is interested in learning more.

The Dark Side of Wireless Technology Documentary must watch! posted Jan 11/18

Written and shared by Sharon Noble, Director, Coalition to Stop Smart Meters, www.stopsmartmetersbc.com

1)    The new documentary “Generation Zapped” is a film that could be presented to groups who are uninformed about the dangers posed by microwave radiation.  The media, of course, is not publicizing it, so we need to do it by word of mouth. This applies to many of the excellent films that have been made.

Wireless WEFRY Wifi dangers education wake up people! posted Jan 8/18

Written and shared by Sharon Noble, Director, Coalition to Stop Smart Meters, www.stopsmartmetersbc.com

1)    The battle to have the public made aware of the dangers of wireless radiation and wireless devices is very similar to that faced for decades regarding tobacco. Bent scientists, industry lobbying politicians, false advertisements, government and health officials with conflicts of interests.  It is up to people like us to spread the word, to educate our families and friends, and to demand a safer environment for our children.

Dear Cell Phone Radiation Warning Naysayers, MeThinks Thou Protests Too Much

“Last week Popular Science editor, Sophia Bushwick, took some shots at the CA Department of Health’s announcement and brochure.

This seems bizarre because the CA DOH wasn’t the first to announce research, advisories, or warnings about cell phone and wireless radiation.  There’s been research since the 1970s that has proven harm.  Some of this research was funded by the U.S. Government.  Some was funded by Motorola.  Many media sources have reported this over the years.

Back when new technology was introduced, cell phones and cell phone minutes were really expensive so they were used sparingly.  Since making all of this so affordable, we are constantly exposing ourselves to microwave radiation – like what cooks food.  There is credible research that says this is harmful though not everyone will be harmed exactly the same way or to the same degree.

We went through the same thing with Big Tobacco.”


2)    Sierra Club encourages fighting Horgan and the Site C decision. How is flooding rich agricultural land, killing wildlife and forcing people from their homes “green”?

Sierra Club B.C. January newsletter includes blistering denunciation of Site C decision

Sierra Club B.C. advises newsletter readers to take the fight to the national and international stages and to the courts.

“Prime Minister Trudeau has a Site C deadline: UNESCO’s World Heritage Committee has called on Canada to evaluate Site C’s impacts on downstream Wood Buffalo National Park, a World Heritage Site,” it states. “By this February Canada must demonstrate progress. The only way for the federal government to adequately address impacts both in the valley and downstream is to pull the permits for Site C.”

Sierra Club B.C. also points out that the United Nations’ Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination “has called on Canada to halt Site C and assess its impact on the land rights of Indigenous Peoples”.”

4)    In New York, a state senator has introduced a bill that would allow anyone to opt out of having a smeter with no penalty due to privacy concerns.. Keeping the analog meter is the only way to ensure that data is not being gathered, sold, or shared without our knowledge or permission. We need to fight to have the law changed so that we have the same right to choose if we want a microwave-emitting, privacy-invading fire hazard on our homes.


“A bill introduced in the New York Senate would allow customers to opt out of installing “smart meter” technology on their homes and businesses. Passage of this bill would allow New Yorkers to protect their own privacy, and it would take a step toward blocking a federal program in effect.

Sen. Kevin Parker (D-Brooklyn) introduced Senate Bill 7214 (S7214) on Jan. 3. The legislation would allow New Yorkers to opt out of any utility company smart meter program with no penalty.

Smart meters monitor home energy usage in minute detail in real time. The devices transmit data to the utility company where it gets stored in databases. Anybody with access to the data can download it for analysts. Without specific criteria limiting access to the data, these devices create significant privacy issues. Smart meters can also be used to remotely limit power usage during peak hours.”



To: Chris O’Riley, BC Hydro CEO; Kenneth Peterson, Chair of BC Hydro Board; John Horgan, BC Premier; David Morton, CEO and Chair, BCUC, et al; Elizabeth May, MP; Andrew Weaver, Adrian Dix, Carol James and Lana Popham, MLAs:

Unfortunately, the more things change, the more they stay the same. Many BC citizens had high hopes that the recently elected NDP government would respond to our concerns regarding Site C and would show true grit by halting the project dead in its already very environmentally destructive tracks — not to mention the four billion dollars already haemorrhaged out of BC’s (read: OUR) coffers.

A four billion debt, although unpalatable, is preferable to being faced with a projected 10-12 billion dollar future debt. (If I ran my finances thus, debt collectors would be hounding me long into my afterlife, long throughout my many future incarnations. Fortunately, I will have left no descendants from this lifetime to carry on with this outrageous burden throughout their lives.)

Many of us also had high hopes that under the NDP, BC Hydro would respond to our grave and justified concerns not only about smart meters and the astronomical increases to our hydro rates, but also about the process and tactics employed by BC Hydro during the instalment of said meters — essentially forcing them down our throats (so to speak).

All that bullying; all those threats; all that fear mongering in pretence of upgrading the grid. So, after treating informed citizens with egregious contempt under the BC Liberals, nothing has changed at BC Hydro under the NDP. And what has Hydro to show for it, given the most recent weather event on the mainland that left over 100 000 people without electricity for over a week? (Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, with love, BC Hydro. [LOL])

Just how exactly have individual smart meters on individual houses throughout the province upgraded the grid? They have not. Smart meters have absolutely nothing to do with the grid, period. Millions have been wasted — and extorted for legacy meters — and yet, thousands of BC residents still end up in the cold, in the dark, simply because BC Hydro had some other agenda going on, other than actually upgrading the grid, or burying hydro poles under ground. Now, wouldn’t that have gone a long way to protecting residents from freak ice storms?

In fact — and perhaps even more importantly — burying poles under ground would also go a very long way to protecting us from corporations gearing up to roll out 5G technology. With plans to take over OUR public right of ways in order to install dangerous micro cell transmitters anywhere and everywhere, non-ionizing thermal electromagnetic frequencies may turn out to be the greatest threat to all things organic: humans, animals, insects, plants — basically everything we are dependent on for our survival, as well as every other living thing that depends on a healthy, natural environment for its existence, also.

To those of you now in power and running the show in the province, and at BC Hydro, I advise each and every one of you to become well acquainted with the word integrity and its manifestation in daily life; there is also the word complicit that was chosen by Dictionary.com as the word of the year for 2017.

Practising integrity — fully and intentionally — would go a long way to cleaning up the mess created at BC Hydro by the previous government and it would ensure that all decisions, at all levels, but especially at the highest levels, are made with BC’s citizens’ best interests in mind and not in cahoots (being complicit), with greedy private corporations with nefarious intentions — such as, selling our private information and forcing us to buy products, and appliances, compatible with their built-in spyware. After all, doesn’t the acronym SMART stand for Surveillance Marketed As Revolutionary Technology? It does indeed.

In short, BC Hydro: get out of my house; stop corporations entering my house and from poisoning our environment by enabling them to install 5G technology everywhere; and start by removing dangerous SMART meters off every house in the province. Analogs are cheaper. They last decades. They do not contain lithium batteries and they do not start house fires. (Hasn’t anyone considered the possibility that those massive fires that ravaged BC and California last year might have been fed and spread by exploding smart meters and micro cells, over and above the unusually dry conditions? One thing that smart meters are not, is safe and green technology.)

If any government is going to promise “real change,” let that change be for the greater good: Right Thoughts. Right Words. Right Actions. Karma’s boomerang always comes back. In other words, if you are going to subject me and my household to your short-sighted, bad decisions, you will be subjecting yourself and your household to those same decisions and while you may be able to afford your outrageous hydro bills for now, will your descendants be able to afford them in the future? And while the majority of people haven’t even heard of non-ionizing thermal radiation yet, once it becomes ubiquitous in our environment and it becomes obvious that it is as dangerous as asbestos and smoking, for example, what then?

In conclusion, the NDP government under John Horgan, BC Hydro and BCUC, still has the time to undo the harms created by the BC Liberals; there is still time to get all Houses in order — and Site C stopped — to restore BC to the kind of place it was before Christy Clark. You may call me a dreamer, but I’m not the only one.

New dangerous applications to HaLow WIFI or we fry as the Pleiadians warn us about dangers to our bodies and environment! posted Jan 6/18

By Stacey Higginbotham

January 4, 2016

Soon your new gadgets will come with a new flavor of Wi-Fi, the radio technology that allows your digital devices to connect to the Internet without blowing through your cellular data cap. This new version isn’t designed for these gadgets, however. Instead, it will be made for the network of connected devices in your home ― and even on your body ― that make up the Internet of Things.

The Wi-Fi Alliance calls this new standard Wi-Fi HaLow (pronounced halo), and says it doubles the distance and cuts the power consumption of traditional Wi-Fi. The Alliance would like to see Wi-Fi become a standard in smart cities where proprietary standards and cellular networks currently reign supreme, and in personal area networks for wearable devices where Bluetooth radios are used now.

So far, the Wi-Fi Alliance is being pretty vague on the details about the new standard in terms of how much power it will consume, how far it will travel, and how much data it will be able to transfer (and how quickly). It does say that the new standard will use the 900 megahertz spectrum, which is currently unlicensed and used by microwave ovens, baby monitors and all sorts of other wireless devices. This means Wi-Fi will now work in three bands; the 2.4 GHz band, the 5 GHz band and the 900 MHz band.

SIGN UP:Get Data Sheet, Fortune’s daily newsletter about the business of technology.

However, HaLow only works in the 900 Mhz band and will do so primarily because that band is great for penetrating walls and going further. So that covers the ‘going the distance’ part, but the jury is still out on the power consumption part, which is where Wi-Fi has really suffered when it comes to the Internet of things. Many of these devices are powered only by batteries, and Wi-Fi is a notorious power suck, which means that most manufacturers don’t use it on sensors, wearables and other devices that don’t have room for a large battery, but are expected to last a long time without a recharge.

When HaLow was being developed around last year as 802.11ah (that’s the IEEE version of the standard as opposed to the Wi-Alliance brand), several engineers at chip companies expressed concern over its claims about being low power. “The Alliance is being a bit vague with the details so I’m a bit skeptical that they will hit their power and speed goals. Otherwise they would be touting the accomplishment,” says Patrick Moorhead, an analyst with Moor Insights and Strategy.

WATCH: For more on CES see our Fortune video.

It did, however, provide data rates for HaLow, which are between 150 kilobits per second and 18 megabits per second, which is much less than the traditional Wi-Fi rates (which are hitting up to a gigabit if the underlying broadband speeds are fast enough). Generally, you’ll see faster data rates at higher power consumptions and when there is less interference. Given the average home environment where 900 Mmz is the spectral equivalent of a Starbucks at 7AM those fast rates may prove difficult. Of course, with the Internet of Things, transmitting large amounts of data isn’t necessary, so that may not matter. Power consumption, reliability and distance could be more important.

The standard won’t be official until 2018, but devices will be out later this year. We’ll soon see how robust and useful Wi-Fi HaLow really is.    http://fortune.com

Cell phone, wireless radiation classified ‘group 1 carcinogenic to humans’ posted Dec 24/17

Written and shared by Sharon Noble, Director, Coalition to Stop Smart Meters, www.stopsmartmetersbc.com

1)    I had shared info about this at the time of the conference, but a member suggested that the fact that experts are now calling for EMR to classified as a true carcinogen is worth sharing again.

Cell phone, wireless radiation classified ‘group 1 carcinogenic to humans’

“The evidence indicating wireless is carcinogenic has increased and can no longer be ignored,” stated Dr. Anthony B. Miller at a July 31, 2017 lecture in Jackson Hole, Wyoming sponsored by the Environmental Health Trust where international experts presented the best available science on cell phone and wireless radiation.”


2)    The Cyprus Medical Association, the Vienna/Austrian Medical Chambers, and the Cyprus National Committee on Environment and Children’s Health is calling for stricter guidelines and higher standards, which are by and large outdated and inadequate to protect children..The science is clear – wireless radiation must be reduced to the lowest levels possible. They provide 16 practical rules for reducing the risk of harm.

Nicosia Declaration on Electromagnetic Fields/Radiofrequencies


3)    Arthur Firstenberg has done a lot of work investigating EMR and fighting to make his environment safer. He has written a Q&A about how cell phones work and the radiation they emit. It is attached. Arthur’s group is the Cellular Phone Task Force and the battle it has been waging.

Pelda Levey and I named our organization the Cellular Phone Task Force in 1996 with several purposes in mind, foremost among them being that the threat to our world that we were facing was and is the cell phone. WiFi came among us in 2001, smart phones in 2004, smart meters in 2007, 5G in 2017, each building on a foundation that has become so big and so omnipresent that most people, even most of the injured, take it for granted. Like the proverbial blind men touching the different extremities of the elephant, we have become oblivious of the beast itself. The problem with smart phones isn’t that they are smart, but that they are phones. Even smart meters are only an arm of the wireless torso, the central creature to which it is attached and to which our civilization and culture have become so dependent, in the short span of two decades, that we can no longer imagine that it is not only possible but necessary to live without it. Only then will we stop 5G. Only then will we keep our landlines. Only then will we save our planet.

Happy holidays,


California setting guidelines for Cell phone use! posted Dec 16/17

Written and shared by Sharon Noble, Director, Coalition to Stop Smart Meters, www.stopsmartmetersbc.com

1)    CBS News reported on the California Public Health warnings about cell phone use.  Hopefully people will begin to pay attention.  Unfortunately they did not tell people that the warning is in every phone manual and is not just on Apple’s iphone.

https://www.cbsnews.com/videos/california-to-set-guidelines-limiting-cellphone-radiation-exposure/    a 2 min. video

2)    The evidence is clear that no one should be living near to a cellular antenna. Yet if the telecoms have their way and if the local governments do not stand up for our rights to protect our territory, there will be antennae outside almost every home. Cell antenna, whether 4G or 5G, will be a few yards and pointed straight at our homes, often feet from a bedroom window .  We must all become involved, educating our friends and neighbours, just as we informed them about smeters, telling your local councillors and mayors that they have the authority and responsibility to protect us by taking every action that is allowed. Also we must campaign to have the councils put this important issue on the agenda for the Federation of Canadian Municipalities meeting in 2018.

Firefighters Don’t Want Cell Towers Near Their Stations, But 50+ Federal Bills Allow Cell Towers In Residential Yards and Pretty Much Everywhere Else

“The International Association of Fire Fighters’ position on locating cell towers commercial wireless infrastructure on fire department facilities, as adopted by its membership in August 2004 (1), is that the IAFF oppose the use of fire stations as base stations for towers and/or antennas for the conduction of cell phone transmissions until a study with the highest scientific merit and integrity on health effects of exposure to low-intensity RF/MW radiation is conducted and it is proven that such sitings are not hazardous to the health of our members. http://www.iaff.org/hs/Facts/CellTowerFinal.asp


3)    A recent Japanese study provides evidence of a relationship between excessive cell phone use by mother can result in reduced birth weight of baby.

Association of excessive mobile phone use during pregnancy with birth weight: an adjunct study in Kumamoto of Japan Environment and Children’s Study

“Low birth weight has been shown to be closely associated with neonatal mortality and morbidity, inhibited growth, poor cognitive development, and chronic diseases later in life. Some studies have also shown that excessive mobile phone use in the postnatal period may lead to behavioral complications in the children during their growing years; however, the relationship between mobile phone use during pregnancy and neonatal birth weight is not clear. The aim of the present study was to determine the associations of excessive mobile phone use with neonatal birth weight and infant health status.


Excessive mobile phone use during pregnancy may be a risk factor for lower birth weight and a high rate of infant emergency transport.”


4)    Elizabeth May responds to Horgan’s decision re. Site C. She will be interviewed tomorrow. In case you miss the live broadcast, the interviews are archived at http://www.cbc.ca/radio/thehouse/pastepisodes

 “The NDP government in British Columbia has betrayed its supporters who have worked for years to stop Christy Clark’s boondoggle. The decision is hugely irresponsible from a fiscal, environmental, legal and economic standpoint. Like Muskrat Falls in Newfoundland and Labrador, this $15 billion disaster will continue to sink into red ink to generate power at a price no one can afford. The facts regarding the Site C dam were reinforced by the recently-released B.C. Utilities Commission final report. The report confirmed that the project will be outrageously expensive for ratepayers and taxpayers, is entirely unnecessary, and will put the future prosperity of the province in serious jeopardy.” 

Tune In!

Saturday, December 16 at 9 AM (9:30 NT) and midnight (12:30 NT)

Listen to Chris Hall interview Elizabeth May on CBC The House about the Site C Hydro Dam decision and the end of the Parliamentary session.

5)    Review of BC Ferry Service is being done, with the final report due the end of June, 2018.  It’s vital that we push for safer ferry service for all, including those who are sensitive to wifi or who wish not to be exposed. It is very interesting that they are not soliciting comments from their customers.

Objective of the Review:

To prepare and submit a report to the Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure for government’s consideration that:

  • Reviews the Coastal Ferry Services Contract and the provision of coastal ferry service in British Columbia to ensure that the model is operating in the public interest.  The reviewer will: 
    • examine BC Ferries’ operations, including operating and capital expenditures, business processes, practices and policies to assess whether the services are being provided for in a manner that supports the public interest in affordable fares;
    • consider what changes to the price cap and regulatory model would ensure the ferry system is working as efficiently and effectively as possible for all British Columbians, and in particular, ferry users and communities who depend on this essential service, and, 
    • identify opportunities and recommend actions to enhance ferry service delivery and/or reduce costs without impacting existing service.


A member who is sensitive and who has to use the ferry often made this suggestion.

“I suggest we keep on the same page re wifi suggestions:

Remove it and if they cannot remove it then isolate it to  the business lounge areas where they can charge a premium for the service and reduce their cost  and maintenance by providing it in a small area. Also a reference to the Faraday Cage like atmosphere  in  the interior the ship caused by the metal bulkheads.  If they see a multitude of the same suggestions and not as part of a form letter they may pay attention to the concerns.”

I suggest we also include that their employees are being exposed to a 2b carcinogen as a condition of their employment. The Ferry Service could be held liable for endangerment of their employees.

This is an ideal time for a concentrated campaign sent to Claire Trevena,  the Minister of Transportation.

Subject: Smart meter fires you will thoroughly investigate





I’m X and someone needs to bring you all up to speed on the many hidden BC Hydro smart meter fires that  the last government, BC Hydro, the former BC energy minister, Fortis, BC and the BC Utilities Commission worked so hard to hide from the people in this province. Never forget who you work for and are being paid to serve and protect from publicly owned crown corporation corruption, being over billed and swore to put first. I’m only 1 of the many 1000s members of the coalition to stop smart meters in BC. And you have no right to force or allow these smart meters to remain on our homes and every other building and structure in this province.


“Lyon, France, May 31, 2011 ‐‐ The WHO/International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has classified radiofrequency electromagnetic fields as possibly carcinogenic to humans (Group 2B), based on an increased risk for glioma, a malignant type of brain cancer, associated with wireless phone use.”    World Health Organization

The United Nations has several committees and has passed several protocols that protect the right Shamefully, Canada has not signed on to some of them. One, the Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities in 2008 established the “Optional Protocol to the Convention” which hears complaints by individuals who believe their rights have been violated.

“The Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) is the body of independent experts which monitors implementation of the Convention by the States Parties.
All States parties are obliged to submit regular reports to the Committee on how the rights are being implemented. States must report initially within two years of accepting the Convention and thereafter every four years. The Committee examines each report and shall make such suggestions and general recommendations on the report as it may consider appropriate and shall forward these to the State Party concerned.
The Optional Protocol to the Convention gives the Committee competence to examine individual complaints with regard to alleged violations of the Convention by States parties to the Protocol.”

This past week, 9 years after the Optional Protocol was established, it has been tabled in Parliament. Tabling of a document can be ceremonial ony, but let’s hope that this is passed into a law that it will protect the rights of all disabled persons, including those suffering from environmental exposure, such as EHS.

Statement by Minister Hehr on International Day of Persons with Disabilities – Employment and Social Development Canada

“Today, one in seven Canadians reports having a disability.And that number will only increase as our population ages. Here in Canada, we are planning to introduce new federal accessibility
legislation which will help improve accessibility for individuals with disabilities in areas under federal jurisdiction. The fact remains that people with disabilities are more likely to be unemployed, to live in poverty and to earn less than people without a disability…

A few days ago, the United Nations Optional Protocol to the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities was tabled in the House of Commons. The Convention protects and promotes the rights and dignity of people with disabilities without discrimination and on an equal basis.”


 2)      Please read the very provocative letter below. Why has Hydro been allowed to deceive us?

3)      It seems that the only consideration for Site C’s continuation is financial – how much will it cost to end or continue. Even on that basis, $4 billion is less than the estimated $10 billion. But what about other costs? Hopefully the Greens will convince Prem. Horgan and the cabinet that there are other reasons to cancel this unnecessary project.


 As dam decision looms, Greens urge email flood to premier’s office “As the decision looms on the future of the B.C. Hydro Site C dam, the NDP government faces pressure from both allies and opponents in the legislature and even in their own MLAs’ constituency offices. Green Party MLAs appealed to Site C opponents this week to flood the government with messages just days away from an announcement on the $8.8 billion project.”


                Further re. Site C, from a member:

Re NDP’s Site C decision, probably tomorrow, from a member:
(Not directly sm related, but for sure to do with the NDP, which now holds
the reins on the sm program.)

“Yesterday I was both amazed and discouraged the NDP was even thinking about going ahead with Site C, especially after what so many of us have said and the report recommending no.  But this morning I woke up with the cautiously optimistic speculation that they purposely created the element of doubt to provoke a response from the public . . . as a final step in their decision-making process (what a concept!).  Anyway, whatever’s going on I think it’s important they get lots of No!’s over the weekend, which is why once again I’m encouraging everyone I know to follow the
recommendations in the email below.  A simple No! is all that’s needed . . . all they’re looking for is how many respondents agreed with their decision vs how many didn’t . . . but nothing wrong with echoing what many have said, which is if they ok Site C that’ll be a betrayal of their election promises and/or that they’ll never vote NDP again.”

To: Attorney General, Eby

Ladies and Gentlemen,

There appears to be a disconnect between elected officials and the public, since the NDP moved from opposition into Government.  Even though we supported your party many elections, hoping that the NDP, ‘the party of the people’, would return decency, justice and moral standards back to BC, we find ourselves, just like before with the Liberals, shut out of the ‘Fortress of Government’, with no response from government officials, including our very own MLA.

Have BC Hydro’s smart meters become the ‘Untouchable Holy Grail’? Why are our questions regarding this government sponsored hubris, remain unanswered? Many of you received plenty of information regarding fire safety, violated constitutional rights, deception and countless serious health concerns, but nothing appears to be read by those who are supposed to be our representatives.

“I don’t care about your health”, was the reprehensible remark of the Liberals, Rich Coleman.  A callous comment like this, should have resulted in the immediate termination of the ministers position. Where does the NDP Government stand on this issue?  Do you care?

Thousands of British Columbians were betrayed by the Liberals, giving BC Hydro the right to deceive, harass and even extort the public, who opposed the installation of a biologically UNTESTED, microwave radiation transmitting device, on their homes! If private business owners would conduct business in such a sleazy and corrupt fashion as BC Hydro, they would find themselves standing in front of a judge, in an instant. Why is this Crown Corporation and their employees above the law?  I, as well as thousands of British Columbians who opposed Smart meters on their home,
would like to know, why no-one is held accountable for deliberate public deception by this Government?

When I became a citizen of Canada, the judge informed me during a lengthy interview, that NO ONE, not even Government, has the right to override my
decisions, regarding my life and my home! We, citizens of Canada, have a legal right to refuse a smart meter!

Since our Charter Rights were callously usurped by the previous BC Government, will you return our Constitutional Rights, or will you wait until the BC Hydro smart meter fiasco turns into a financial and public health disaster, before anything is done?

Due to the explosion of public wireless radiation pollution, my wife became so severely electronically hyper sensitive (EHS) in recent years, that we had to move to a remote area of BC, far away from family and friends.  ALL the pleasures of live that we used to take for granted, are no more!

Because of my wife’s severe EHS affliction, which made her sensitive to any form of microwave radiation, no matter how small, we called and sent countless emails to BC Hydro, asking for an analog meter.  All in vain! What we received from BC Hydro were lies, orchestrated deception and meaningless form letters.

I personally experienced this deliberate public deception by BC Hydro’s smart meter agents, lobbyists and contractors, not only once, but many, many times!  Here is a sampling of this appalling deliberate public deception, that I am willing to testify in court to:

1.  Smart meters are only radios and do not emit anything!   – False!  The have 2 microwave transmitters.

2.  Smart meters have no transmitters.   – False!  They contain 2 microwave transmitters.

3.  They only emit 3 to 4 times a day.   – False!   We personally metered thousands of powerful transmission spikes, with the aid of a digital RF meter, which records radiation spikes on a histogram. Itron, the makers of BC’s smart meters, acknowledged that smart meters can emit up to 190.000 (One Hundred Ninety Thousand) radiation spikes a day!

4.  They are as safe as pickles.  – deliberate attempt to mislead, by omission! Deliberate omit ion of the word “toxic”, that the WHO applied to a specific product from China.

6.  Analog meters are not available anymore  – False!  New analog meters are readily available.

7.  This is not a smart meter  – False!  Pure deception!

8.  This meter is a modified, non-emitting smart meter, that does not transmit anything – False! This stunning bold faced lie by senior BC Hydro staff, was captured on video, and witnessed by many bystanders.

There are far more issues than what I listed, which can only be described as,  and extortion tactics, to force the financially insecure population of B.C. to submit to a smart meter installation, against their will.

A.  Why is deliberate public deception, by a public utility, tolerated by your Government?

B.  Why is deliberate public deception by public employees, tolerated by your Government?

This ongoing deliberate deception by BC Hydro, where no one is held accountable for their actions, undermines the integrity of your Government, if no action is taken to correct this highly unethical and repugnant behavior.

Deception is the act of causing one to believe information that is not true, or an untruth, or not the whole truth.  An act or practice of deception is a misrepresentation, omission, or practice that misleads the consumer to his detriment.

Would thousands of British Columbians, who were deliberately deceived by BC Hydro and their agents, would have allowed the installation of biologically untested microwave transmitters on their home, with full knowledge that in 2011, the World Health Organization elevated exposure of wireless radiation, into the Class 2B list of Carcinogens? This change in Cancer classification applied to ALL non-ionizing radiation, no matter the source.  Recent research strengthens the level of evidence regarding carcinogenicity and biotoxic effects to life.  Today, scientiststhe world over are calling for a minimum of a 2A, and even a 1A Cancer Classification, rendering Canada’s Safety Code 6 obsolete, and biologically non-protective.

American Academy of Environmental Medicine
“The AAEM strongly supports the use of wired Internet connections, and encourages avoidance of radiofrequency such as from WiFi, cellular and mobile phones and towers, and “smart meters.” The peer reviewed, scientific literature demonstrates the correlation between RF exposure and neurological, cardiac, and pulmonary disease as well as reproductive and
developmental disorders, immune dysfunction, cancer and other health conditions. The evidence is irrefutable.”

Would British Columbians have allowed smart meter installations on their homes, if they would have learned the true facts, that were deliberately withheld, by BC Hydro? Would they have allowed ‘biologically active’ smart meter radiation to penetrate their home and the bodies of their children, thousands of times, day and night?  I think not!

No matter how many ‘Acts’ are passed by Government, lies and willful deception by BC Hydro and public employees, remains a deplorable,treacherous act of public deception!

According to democratic principals and the Nuremberg Code which is still relevant today, the decision to accept or reject a biologically untested smart meter must lie in the hands of the homeowners.  A forced smart meter installation, constitutes an uncontrolled biological experiment without consent, in violation of the the code, to which Canada is a signee.

1. The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential.This means that the person involved should have legal capacity to give consent; should be so situated as to be able to exercise free power of choice, without the intervention of any element of force, fraud, deceit, duress, overreaching, or other ulterior form of constraint or coercion; and should have sufficient knowledge and comprehension of the elements of the subject matter involved as to enable him to make an understanding and enlightened decision. This latter element requires that before the acceptance of an affirmative decision by the experimental subject there should be made known to him the nature, duration, and purpose of the experiment; the method and means by which it is to be conducted; all inconveniences and hazards reasonably to be expected; and the effects upon his health or person which may possibly come from his participation in the experiment. When Government tolerates unprincipled and unscrupulous behavior by a Crown Corporation, all that remains is the illusion of governmental honour and integrity. Will your Government return integrity and honesty to B.C.?  Will your Government return our irrevocable right to make choices in our lives, including the right of a smart meter refusal? Your meaningful, unscripted reply would be greatly appreciated.

Kind regards,
Marcus Schluschen


Of all the issues we face – clemtrail geoengineering has to be priority #ONE! posted Nov 30/17

 Geo-Engineering – intentionally changing the climate.
This is a MUST RESEARCH – MUST WATCH interview video,

Inge’s Added Comments: This is one issue where “denial” does not solve the problem – nor does denial make it go away.

Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.”Aldous Huxley   Inge  cdsapi@telus.net

I fear the day that technology will surpass our human interaction.
The world will have a generation of idiots.”
Albert Einstein

Fabricating pseudo-explanations for “climate change” does not alter the reality that
the Climate is being INTENTIONALLY Changed – Engineered

The emphasis on Carbon dioxide as the primary problem is a convenient distraction – a convenient repeated detractor to cover-up the pollution from the COVERT “geo-engineering” reality of Chemtrails.
– a process that has been in progress – under the radar – at least since WWII
– the intensity of this geoengineering is expanding exponentially, and now envelopes the entire planet – it is at the center of the generation of most of the realy weird climate/weather manifestations.
Chemtrails went into high gear in 1995 – and so did the appearance of really weird extreme weather.

If we do not deal with “Climate Engineering” (CHEMTRAILS and HARRP technologies), nothing else will matter.
This is an existential survival-of-life threat – not just human life, but all life on the planet.

This mammoth toxic assault on the atmosphere (all of which eventually comes down again as toxic rain and snow) has outstripped biology’s ability to compensate and adapt.
All around us, we see biology collapsing.
(For example, the bees, insects and birds are disappearing,; scientists predict that in 10 years, 1 in 2 children will develop autism – and adults equally develop Alzheimer’s.)

The primary ingredient in Chemtrails is aluminium – a potent nerve and metabolism destroyer.

With millions of tons of Aluminium being sprayed into the atmosphere as chemtrails every year, the build up is tremendous in the air, soil, and water – destroying biological processes.

We may already have passed the point of no return. In the last 40 years, we have already lost 60% of wildlife populations – and the remainder are imploding very rapidly.

For more information, go to www.geoengineeringwatch.org

The volumes of information on this website is huge – designed to WAKE US UP in the hope that we may still have a chance to halt and reverse this biological catastrophe – if we ACT Right Away. MAYBE!
Chemtrails MUST be STOPPED.

This is YOUR Future – ACT to protect your survival and the survival of all life on the only planet we have.

Dane Wigington – Climate Engineering – Biggest Cover-up in Human History


This is the biggest cover-up in human history, … with the largest most extensive operation in human history, with the cooperation of governments around the globe.
If we are not saving the life-support systems of the planet, everything else amounts to arranging deckchairs on the Titanic.

This is the single most destructive endeavour ever launched by the human race, It is the greatest threat we face short of nuclear catastrophe. “

Many of us have struggled to find what and who is behind the push for Genetically modified foods,   Water Fluoridation,   Agenda 21 and now   Agenda 30 (sustainable development),   climate change,   Smart meters etc.   but there has never been a clear answer to these questions until now.

Inge’s Added Comment: “It is difficult, if not impossible, to fight an enemy that one does not see, or understand.”

The How  and   Why  Big Oil Conquered the World  are two superb documentaries that give a detailed factual presentation of the HISTORY that is totally ignored and  buried in our educational system and governance apparatuses – and replaced by the Elites’ attitudinal paradigm and operational agenda that is always kept in the shadows, well camouflaged with “This is good for you”  propaganda..

I implore you to take the time – 3 hours – to listen to them. 
You will never see the unfolding events in today’s world through the same lens, ever again.
Nor will you be again deceived by the programmed rhetoric that masquerades as “news”.

If you want to participate in the “educate the misinformed public” truth-movement, you will pass these links on to every one of your contacts, friends, and family.   I thank you in advance!
I would be interested in your comments – after watching them.

Lower BC recipients – Notice of meeting Nov29 and 30 – Stop the oil projects on the coast! posted Nov 28/17

Save the Salish Sea, together!

Georgia Strait Alliance and Stand invite you to attend a special panel discussion on how we can stop the 12+ oil, coal and LNG projects that could come online along the shores of the Salish Sea and build a fossil fuel free future for our region.

We’ll be talking about how Whatcom County tackled this very issue, and how we can build grassroots resistance in communities on this side of the border. Let’s ensure that fossil fuel companies meet a wall of opposition up and down the West Coast, and let’s put in place a moratorium on new fossil fuel infrastructure in the Salish Sea, which deserves to be protected.

Update 2017-11-18 In Massachusetts a bent tobacco scientist hired to say RF from smeters is fine posted Nov 20/17

  Written and shared by Sharon Noble, Director, Coalition to Stop Smart Meters, www.stopsmartmetersbc.com .

1)   A good article by one of our colleagues fighting smeters and RF emitters in Massachusetts. Just as in BC where FortisBC paid for Exponent,  the utility hired a product defense firm, Gradient, to defend smeters. These hired “experts” defend the indefensible like agent orange, tobacco, pesticides, and smeters. If smeters are so safe, why must firms like these be paid to convince the public utility commissions? 

Massachusetts: Utility Meters Matter 

“The Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities (MA DPU)addressed smart meter health concerns in its order MA DPU 12-76-B in June of 2014. The MA DPU relied on career tobacco scientist Peter Valberg of Gradient (an environmental and risk

sciences consulting firm) to support their argument. Valberg testified for Philip Morris cigarettes the same week he testified for the MA DPU. He was featured in the Center for Public Integrity’s award-winning 2016 series Science for Sale  for discounting the largest ever-reported cluster of occupational brain tumor deaths at a  Texas chemical plant, and for publishing tainted research for the chemical industry. Like Monsanto, it appears that Gradient may have ghostwritten the MA DPU’s health testimony.”

2)   One of the founding members of AC/DC died at age 64, of dementia. He was diagnosed several years ago, mid-50s. Performers are inundated with wifi.  Please see my Nov. 14 update about the increase in Alzheimer’s and dementia and the scientific study that could explain why.  If you didn’t keep the update, you can go on our website, www.stopsmartmetersbc.com and find it under “newsletters”.

Malcolm Young, Whose Guitar Riffs Helped Propel AC/DC to Fame, Dies at 64

Malcolm Young, the guitarist and songwriter who helped found the Australian rock band AC/DC, died on Saturday. He was 64.

His family confirmed the death in a statement, adding that Mr. Young had had dementia for several years. It did not say where he died.

Update 2017-11-19 Shaw plans on blanketing Maple Ridge with wifi hotspots. Comments needed by Nov. 22. posted Nov 20/17

 Written and shared by Sharon Noble, Director, Coalition to Stop Smart Meters, www.stopsmartmetersbc.com .

1)    Urgent response needed to Shaw’s plan to blanket Maple Ridge, including parks and play grounds. with wifi hot spots. There was a public meeting last Wednesday (not announced widely) that a couple of our members attended. The time frame is very contracted, with public comments being accepted until Nov. 22.  Attached is information that was provided by Shaw. 

Here is some of the info provided by those who attended:

“I asked what the Shaw objectives were.
The response was basically to get additional Shaw subscribers.
People with existing Shaw accounts and email addresses would be able to access the internet via the Shaw Hot Spots and the new Hot Spots in the public areas.
People without an existing Shaw account would be allowed on as a “guest”
I do not know what the parameters of “guest” are but I expect they would be such to force or seduce user to get a Shaw account and email.

Some of the locations are already served by WiFi hot spot supported by other agencies – such as City Hall.

The Memorial Peace Park is currently a WiFi free zone but has some Cell tower radiation.  This site would then have Shaw WiFi with possibly multiple routers – maybe 4-6.  Unknown at this time

Currently there are about 350 Shaw Hot Spots in Maple Ridge, most in commercial establishments such as coffee shops and small businesses.
With this proposal, Shaw want to push WiFi into the public areas that currently have no commercial management.
See Shaw Hot Spots on the web.

One of the first statements made by Shaw reps was that the RFR levels were below SC6.
My verbal response was “Safety Code 6 is Crap.  Look at levels in Switzerland, India and China which were about 50-100 times lower.”

Comparing RFR from WiFi routers with items like remote controls and garage door openers is an attempt to equate the levels which is ludicrous.

And Dr Daly (the provincial health officer for the area)  is still being quoted in her support of SC6 and that she has no concerns about RFR and WiFi.  Of course she would say that because it seems that every one in the health business believes that Health Canada and ISED are telling the truth when they say that RFR is harmless if the levels are below SC6.

Shaw is aggressively installing Shaw Hot Spots all across Canada.  (more than 80,000 already)”

Please send your comments, no matter how short.  Please tell them that Shaw is endangering those living and working near these hot spots, children playing in parks, as well as insects like bees without which we could not live. And bcc

What are smartphones doing to young people?

Smartphones making young people more lonely and depressed

“Twenge agrees with recent research linking smartphone use among young people to sleep disruption, loneliness, anxiety, depression and even increased risk of suicide. 

One addiction expert in the U.K. likened giving a child a smartphone to “giving them a gram of cocaine.” (CBC)

She says communicating online has been no substitute for face-to-face interaction with friends.

“Social media companies advertise themselves as a way for us to connect with each other. But when you look at the data, that doesn’t really hold up,” Twenge says.”

Subject: Does Mrs. Trvena care? 

Hello Mary, 

I have sent numerous emails regarding “smart” meters and 5G microtowers to Mrs. Trevena and received no reply to anything I have sent.  Has Mrs. Trevena taken the time to read the science information I sent? 

As a constituent of her riding, as well as long time supporter of the NDP, I must confess that I am deeply disappointed in her, and the NDP’s non-response.

Does the NDP not care?  

Is Mrs. Trevena not concerned about the health of her own family, or the well being of the environment that we share with other life?

I like to know if the NDP will be reviewing the monumental “smart” meter hubris, by the previous government, considering that “smart” meter radiation meets the scientific standards of, ‘The Hills Criteria of Causality’ to do harm.

It is appalling that we have to fight for our health, and the health of generations to come, while government officials stay silent!  Obviously corporate interest and profit overrules environmental health, and any trace of human compassion.   

As you might know from my previous correspondence, my wife suffers from severe sensitivities to electromagnetic radiation (EHS), which was the sole reason for us to move to remote Gold River, far away from work, family and friends.

  Anyone who is unfamiliar, or wishes to remain unfamiliar with this subject, has no idea how much agony EHS sufferers go through on a daily basis.  The word ‘torture’ would describe this man made affliction most accurately. 


“Widespread use of digital media and near constant exposure to wireless devices, has caused increasing concern among scientists, health care professionals, psychologist, educators and the public who are now considering this is not only a public health issue, but a looming health crisis.”  

“It appears that we are at the same point of emerging science similar to early recognition of health impacts associated with tobacco, asbestos, coal dust and lead.  These concerns are amplified by industry proposals for a massive expansion of wireless infrastructure and connectivity.”  .– Physicians for Safe Technology

Will the NDP stay silent and run roughshod over our civil rights, which are enshrined in the Canadian constitution, as the previous government did?

If Mrs. Trevena will not respond, would you please be so kind and respond?

Kind regards

Dear Marcus

Minister Trevena is aware of your concerns. I might suggest that you write to the Minister responsible Michelle Mungall. Her email address is: EMPR.Minister@gov.bc.ca

My reply to Mary Carstairs: 

Hello Mary,

Minister Mungall received my emails several weeks ago, and just like Minister Trevena, choose not to reply. Mr. Scott Fraser who used to be our MLA, replied to my emails in a timely fashion, why the change?

I am surprise that the NDP would resort to ‘stonewalling’ on the “smart” meter issue, which was forced on the public, biologically untested, without informed consent.

Are the Ministers on a “smart” meter gag order?

When Mr. Horgan was in opposition, he was sympathetic to the thousands British Columbians who were well informed of the health issues, he was also aware of the colossal waste of money, this insane Liberal government program recklessly imposed on the citizens of BC.

The NDP’s Fast Ferries were a minor mistake, compared the Liberals “smart” meter fiasco.

Will this government stand idly by and continue in the same stoic fashion, as the morally bankrupt previous government?

To learn that Minister Trevena is aware of my concerns is of little comfort, as I was hoping for an actual reply.  I am not alone, as thousands of British Columbians share the very same concerns.

If health is of such little importance to this government, may I ask, what exactly is important to them?

Will this government stand idly by and allow that the population of British Columbia be used in this unauthorized, uncontrolled, biological experiment, in direct violation of international law?

The only thing that is “green” are the billions of dollars, wasted on this idiotic “smart”meter scam. 

Kind regards,

Marcus Schluschen

Update 2017-11-16 Some in Calif. wonder if smeters contributed to recent major fires? posted Nov 18/17

Written and shared by Sharon Noble, Director, Coalition to Stop Smart Meters, www.stopsmartmetersbc.com .

1)    Going off grid is becoming a realistic goal for many families, according to this article and research from the Univ. of Michigan.

Subsidizing coal and nuclear power could drive customers off the grid

My team studied the potential for grid defection in northern Michigan, one of the most challenging places in the United States to go solar. Winters there are dark and brutally cold, so households can rely entirely on solar power only in warm seasons.

However, solar coupled with so-called cogeneration systems and batteries can provide enough energy on cold, cloudy winter days. These small-scale combined heat and power systems, which are made mainly in Japan, usually run on natural gas and produce heat as they generate electricity. They can function year-round and are most effective in the winter when solar production is low. The costs of these hybrid systems are declining.” (see second link for info on this system.)



2)    In Calif. people are wondering if smeters played any role in starting or spreading the horrendous fires a couple of months ago. Article and letter below in Letters.   Perhaps we should be asking the same questions in BC. Has anyone investigated the possibility that smeters or any part of the “smart” grid contributed to the fires that spread throughout much of BC?

3)    Does anyone who is getting this update live in Colwood?  If so, would you please let me know via email to dsnoble@shaw.ca with “Colwood” on the subject line.

4)    Response to outages in Maine as a result of a storm was slowed due to smeters not working and collectors, etc. going down. This will happen in BC, too. Did no one think that perhaps the lines should be put underground rather than spend money on unnecessary smeters?   

State lawmaker calls for investigation of CMP’s handling of storm

Berry, part of the Energy, Utilities, Techonolgy Committee, says part of the problem was several smart meters failed to report outages to CMP…

“Maine homes and businesses paid for all of the costs of the Smart meter infrastructure,” Berry said. “Very expensive.”

CMP admits there were problems with some Smart Meters not being able to communicate back with the company that the power was out. But CMP spokesperson Gail Rice says it had no bearing on their restoration efforts.

“We get the outage information from a broad range of sources including customer calls, the Smart metering system and also our damage assessments which are a crucial step in our storm recovery,” Rice said. “When the poles go down, the devices come down as well. And they don’t operate as well as they would if they were in their proper spots.”



From someone in a Calif. anti-smeter group.

Hello All,

Attached below is the full article on North California fire damage, 

by David R. Baker in today’s November 15th, 2017, SF Chronicle,  that refers to:

1.  PG&E’s use of 

        “devices that automatically try to restart power lines after they shut down”, 

2.  investigators with the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, or Cal Fire,       have not yet determined a cause for any of the fires,

But First,    here is a question :

Could ‘smart meters’ have had anything to do
with the cause and speed of the No Calif. fires?

—  the same way    that
Hundreds of fires were suddenly caused by exploding smart meters
right after a truck hit and knocked downed a PG&E ‘utility pole’,
in Stockton California on March 30th 2015. ?

Here are just three of many references to that media story:
1.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KLsfHgZIMsc
2.  https://takebackyourpower.net/hundreds-of-smart-meters-simultaneously-explode/
3.  www.stopsmartmeters.org.nz/latest…/hundreds-of-smart-meters-explode-in-california/

In other words,

It is a proven fact,  that it only took only ONE downed power pole,
to cause hundreds of fires from simultaneously exploding smartmeters.

And, after all, the purpose of the smartmeters,
is that they are all connected on the national smart grid ?

Some who lost homes file suits against PG&E  By David R. Baker    

November 14, 2017 Updated: November 14, 2017 4:29pm – SF Chronicle

Former San Francisco Mayor Frank Jordan, his wife and a Sonoma County couple who escaped last month’s wildfires by jumping in their pool filed suit Tuesday against Pacific Gas and Electric Co., joining a growing number of North Bay homeowners accusing the utility of sparking the blazes.

The latest suits were filed Tuesday by a coalition of five law firms alleging that PG&E, through poor maintenance of its equipment and inadequate trimming of nearby trees, had a role in starting the Wine Country wildfires, even though the state’s official investigation has not pinpointed a cause.

The lawyers said Tuesday they would look into many issues that have come to light since the fires erupted on Oct. 8, including PG&E’s use of devices that automatically try to restart power lines after they shut down, even if they are lying on the ground. And the attorneys rejected PG&E’s recent claim that electrical lines owned and installed by someone else may have sparked the most destructive of the fires, the Tubbs Fire, which burned entire neighborhoods of Santa Rosa.

“We can’t rely on their statement that it’s someone else’s wires,” said attorney Frank Pitre, with Cotchett, Pitre & McCarthy, at a Tuesday morning news conference in Burlingame. “We want to see.”

Jordan and his wife owned a weekend home on Mark West Springs Road in Santa Rosa. They fled the night of Oct. 8 after seeing flames in the distance and warning their neighbors. Jordan, who served as mayor from 1992 to 1996, was scheduled to attend Tuesday’s news conference but had a last-minute conflict, Pitre said.

Gregory Wilson, who lost his home just outside Santa Rosa, told reporters that he and his wife took shelter in their pool as the fires overran their area.

“Basically, for the next three hours, we watched everything burn around us,” he told reporters, his voice just above a whisper due to smoke inhalation. “It’s a nightmare you couldn’t even imagine.”

As of last week, more than 120 plaintiffs had filed 15 separate suits against PG&E over the fires, according to an estimate the utility included in a legal filing. Some of the law firms involved have even started running television ads seeking more North Bay residents interested in suing PG&E.

And yet, investigators with the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, or Cal Fire, have not yet determined a cause for any of the fires, which together burned 210,000 acres, destroyed 8,900 structures and killed at least 43 people. The investigation may take months.

Cotchett, Pitre & McCarthy hired its own investigators and filed its suits Tuesday, working with law firms Dreyer Babich Buccola Wood Campora; Panish Shea & Boyle; Walkup, Melodia, Kelly & Schoenberger; and Abbey, Weitzenberg, Warren & Emery.

PG&E spokesman Keith Stephens noted in response that Cal Fire’s official investigation remains under way, and PG&E is cooperating with it.

“Our primary focus has been — and continues to be — the safety and well-being of the customers and communities that have been affected by these wildfires,” he said in an email.

PG&E last week filed a request with the Judicial Council of California to organize the many North Bay wildfire suits into five separate proceedings, based on the location of each fire concerned. So all of the plaintiffs suing over the Atlas Peak Fire, for example, would be part of a single proceeding, while those affected by the Tubbs Fire would be in a separate proceeding. The council, the policy-making body for California’s court system, has the authority to coordinate proceedings in complex cases.
