Another Municipal Election is approaching in, just in time too.  Telus, Shaw, Rogers and Bell all want to install 5G wireless beside your home, school and business.   Residents in BC cities have experienced this sudden installation and been questioning why they were not informed.  City councils are often approached by the wireless industry asking for a waver to freely begin their installations without delay.  5G is an entirely different level of radiation exposure loaded on top of the existing 4G and 3G networks,  it uses millimetre waves that are known to cause health issues, such as heating the skin and eyes, causing cancer.

The BC Municipal Election on October 20, 2018 will be putting some of those candidates running for office in the decision chair.  They need to know what is really going on with wireless,  they need to hear from you that this is a crucial health issue.  If you plan to vote, please take this one last opportunity to reach out and ask each political candidate if they will allow Telus to install 5G gNode antennas right in front of your bedroom window without public consultation.  The grid is being rolled out across the globe, this is BC residents LAST chance to review what is being considered, and for those communities that are already covered, those communities will require heavy discussion to reverse any decisions already agreed to behind closed doors.

Special attention to residents living within a short radius of antennas was required by law, and antennas below a certain height were believed to not require any notifications to the city or residents, however cities do require building permits and that requires discussion with the city.  Some cities such as Mission, Kamloops and Victoria – have bypassed this right to know, allowing industry to install beside whatever home they wish, is that the kind of political candidate we want in office? Please consider contacting your BC Municipal candidates and showing them what you know, and showing them why this topic is important to your family and neighbourhood.  Ask them what they will do if approached by Telus, Rogers, Bell or Shaw in the near future.  Public Consultation is the correct answer, but for many have already had these installed, they were not given that opportunity to be notified or even to voice an opinion prior to any agreement between the city and the wireless company.  This process needs to change, locally, provincially and nationally.

In addition, in districts like Maple Ridge/Pitt Meadows, MLA Lisa Beare and MP Dan Ruimy have shown no interest and are actively dismissive of this entire issue, preferring to avoid it.  Citizens approaching Ruimy regarding 5G concerns are brushed off.  People wanting to be elected to make big decisions on your behalf should know the facts,  please share research on the effects from RF exposure, with MPs and people running for Council.  Studies showing the effects of RF and millimetre waves (5G) can be found at emrabc.ca and other websites.  We encourage you to forward your comments to MPs, such as Ruimy, on their dismissal of this critical health issue (without serious investigation).  Let us educate and help select leaders who actually are concerned about our future.
