Petitioning Mayor of the City of Victoria, Lisa Helps, City Council, and Telus and 4 others remove cell Towers from 1145 Fairfield Road and ban cell towers from low-rise apartment buildings.

Industry Canada’s Safety Code 6, which is designed as a guideline for the “Protection of the General Public,” is based solely on outdated research related to thermal effects and nerve stimulation (NS). There is a mountain of evidence strongly indicating that radio frequency (RF) radiation is linked to a whole host of harmful biological effects ranging from migraines and sleep disorders to infertility, brain-blood barrier impairment and a large range of cancers from serious DNA damage.

In the US, these are comprehensively gathered and summarized in the BioInitiative report which is organized by Cindy Sage, an EMF expert and consultant (http://www.bioinitiative.org/). In the UK, Dr. Erica Mallery-Blythe gives a thorough and powerful summary (http://www.radiationresearch.org/index.php). In Canada, Canadians for Safe Technology are working hard to educate the public and exert pressure on unresponsive politicians and aggressive telecom companies (http://www.c4st.org/).

Due to this mountain of evidence, a great number of municipalities and countries in Europe are rolling back and controlling the spread of wireless technology, especially in schools since children are far more vulnerable (http://www.cellphonetaskforce.org/?page_id=128). Doctors and scientists in Canada have declared to Health Canada that “Canada’s Safety Code 6 Guideline is fundamentally flawed.”

These towers adversely affect the health of everyone nearby and they must be removed.
