  Backgrounder on Mirror Laws to Respond to Growing Wi-Fi Threat

  Prepared by David McRobert, Legal Advisor to the WRSC

 

“One of the most important conundrums related to regulating Wi Fi technologies is the lack of a coherent constitutional framework . . .

“Mirror laws provide an opportunity for federal and provincial governments to sit down with other stakeholders and develop a coherent policy framework within current constitutional framework. They can avoid constitutional “buck passing” and arguably could provide a solution on regulating most Wi Fi issues. They have been an under- utilized tool in environmental area since late 1980s.”

  Statement by Kathy McDermid, occupational therapist

  and parent, Peterborough, Ontario

    April 18 – 2011    Wireless Radiation Safety Council

 

“My name is Kathy McDermid, and I am the parent of two children who attend James Strath P. S. in Peterborough. I am here to speak to the fact that our school board is committing grave ethical transgressions in implementing its plan to install wireless internet, or Wi-Fi, in its schools.

“I am not a doctor or a scientist, although I am a health care professional. I believe my professional background enables me to speak with some knowledge about medical ethics. Medical ethics are a set of principles that guide the practice of medicine and medical research. It is a vast field, which rests on three pillars: The Precautionary Principle, Informed Consent, and Transparency.

“The precautionary principle is a core value of the health sciences – we recognize it most readily as part of the doctors’ Hippocratic Oath, which states “First, do no harm.”

“ . . . These are not the school board’s children we are talking about. They are MINE. The school board is quite literally planning to do unauthorized, unethical research – without transparency, without consent, and completely ignoring the precautionary principle – on my children, and on every other child who attends one of its schools. The school board DOES NOT have the right to experiment on my children. It DOES NOT have the right to make decisions that may affect my children’s health, now and in the future. And it DOES NOT have the right to decide whether the level of risk associated with prolonged Wi-Fi exposure is acceptable for my children. Only I have that right. And I say “NO.”
