The Greatest Health Scandal of Our Time


Please sign and share Petition e-2424

Support Ron McKinnon, MP, chair of the Commons standing committee on health, to present a document to the House of Commons, on behalf of constituents, expressing concern for the harmful effects from radiofrequency (RF) radiation.

An article filled with false information to discredit scientists and medical experts who are warning the public of the health risks from wireless technology.

Dear Mr. Ron McKinnon,  Please share with Cheryl Sanftleben

Re: Petition e-2424 (Health)

Parents for Safe Schools is an organization of parents, teachers and students that would like to support your decision to bring this extremely important issue to the attention of Parliament. 

Our elected Government Officials and Provincial Health Officer have failed to do their due diligence by willfully closing their eyes to our numerous requests for answers regarding the safety of our children in schools.  They have instead deliberately overstepped the fundamental rights of parents by installing unregulated wireless radiation, a 2b carcinogen listed with lead, DDT, methyl mercury, chloroform, and car exhaust, in and around all our schools without consultation or consent, robbing us/parents of our legal right to manage and protect our children's health and continued well-being.

They have refused to provide us with an official response to the 2018, current findings of the two 10 year long studies on 2G and 3G technology by US National Toxicology Program and the supporting Ramazzini Institute Study that confirmed the link to Cancer from all prolonged wireless radiation exposure including cell tower radiation.  To date, there have been no long-term non-industry funded studies on the biological effects of 4G and 5G exposure and it’s our children who will suffer from the irreversible health effects.

Currently it is mandatory that our children will be exposed to Microwave Radiation from wireless technology with no way to shield themselves from this full body radiation, much like the rats used in these studies.

It is a SCIENTIFIC FACT that microwave radiation exposure causes biological effects confirming the growing evidence of neurological effects and developmental delays with irreversible health effects, such as Depression, Suicide, Violence, Anxiety, Autism, Addiction, Behavioral Issues, Heart Episodes, Infertility, ADD/ADHD, Compromised Ability to Learn, Headaches, Nose/Ear Bleeds, Brain Fog, Difficulty Concentrating, and Cancer.  As documented in over 31,000 peer reviewed published studies by scientists and medical experts.

Our Government Officials and Provincial Health Officer have willfully dismissed all credible health information presented to them from qualified experts, nationally and internationally, which emphasize children's heightened vulnerabilities and the need for "precautionary" measures to reduce exposure and the risk of permanent health effects.

Canada agreed the Precautionary Principle would be implemented when an activity raises threats of harm to human health or the environment, even if some cause and effect relationships are not fully established scientifically. The Precautionary Principle shifts the burden of proof, insisting that those responsible for an activity must vouch for its harmlessness and be held responsible if damage occurs.

By refusing to implement the Precautionary Principal and ignoring the growing body of “clear evidence” of cancer, the mandatory exposure in and around our schools will ultimately be responsible for the greatest health scandal of our time.

Sincerely,

Janis Hoffmann

Dr. Bonnie Henry Provincial Health Officer

Dear Dr. Henry,

Could you please take position to the article in the mentioned link below?
         

Will you take measures to address the biological negative effects of WiFi electromagnetic radiation (EMR)?

Now at this time of the covid-19 pandemic, when it is of utmost importance that our immune system is not compromised by the electro-smog?
I refer to BC Health Act:   

BC Public Health Act, section 83 (1): 

A local government must do all of the following:

(a) if the local government becomes aware of a health hazard or health impediment within its jurisdiction, take an action required by a regulation made under section 120 (1) (a) [regulations respecting local governments], or, if no regulation applies, either

(i) report the health hazard or health impediment to a health officer, or

(ii) take an action the local government has authority to take under this or another enactment to respond to the health hazard or health impediment;

With “local government” is also meant the provincial government.

You as our provincial chief medical officer are asked to contact Dr. Tim Singer, Director General, Health Canada / Government of Canada tim.singer@canada.ca and urge his office that any further wireless technology deployment for the 5G rollout (including any antenna installations, present and future) [be] put on hold until HC has reviewed and assessed again (after HESA 2010 and 2015) Safety Code 6.

All the addressed biological negative impacts of WiFi EMR transmissions could easily be avoided by applying  far safer/faster/more secured alternatives like wired communication networks as mentioned in Timothy Schoechle’s paper https://electromagnetichealth.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/ReInventing-Wires-1-25-18.pdf

Looking forward to your position and response.
Hans Karow

Ombudsperson dismisses complaint against Government Officials and Provincial Health Officer.

Our complaint filed with the Ombudsperson was dismissed; she stated that the Ombudsperson can not make our Government Officials or the Provincial Health Officer answer our questions regarding the safety of our children in school.  Her solution was to vote them out in the next election. 

Who is the advocate for the public when officials refuse to respond?  Who is going to be held responsible for willfully ignoring the "clear evidence" of harm to our children in school?

The Complaint - 20-179340
Why do you believe the organization's actions are unfair?
Our elected Government Officials and our Provincial Health Officer have failed to do their due diligence by willfully closing their eyes to our requests for answers regarding the safety of our children in school.  They  have instead deliberately overstepped the fundamental rights of parents by installing unregulated wireless radiation, a 2b carcinogen, in all schools without consultation or consent, robbing us/parents of our legal right to manage and protect our children's health and continued well-being.
Our government officials and health officer have dismissed all credible health information presented to them from qualified experts, nationally and internationally, who emphasize children's heightened vulnerabilities and the need for "precautionary" measures to reduce exposure and the risk of permanent health effects.

Parents, teachers and students want to know why the BC government and the Provincial Health Officer, has refused to “act in good faith,” by fulfilling their moral and legal obligation, to protect our children, while under their care in our schools?

Tell us your complaint. Tell us what you have done to try to solve the problem yourself. (Please give us any file or reference numbers and the dates these things happened.)
We would like to lodged a formal complaint against the Premier of BC, John Horgan, Deputy Minister, Don Wright, Minister of Health, Adrian Dix, Deputy Minister of Health, Stephen Brown, Minister of Education, Rob Fleming, Deputy Minister of Education, Scott MacDonald and our Provincial Health Officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry for willfully ignoring all our emails requesting information on the safety of wireless technology in our schools.
