Excerpts from Perceived Disability Protection

(PDF) Grounds of Protection in BC

Disability- Physical or Mental

“Disability is not defined in the legislation but has evolved to include protection for people who have, or are perceived to have a mental or physical disability whether visible or non visible, permanent (e.g. a visual or mobility impairment), or temporary (e.g. a treatable illness or temporary impairment which is the result of an accident)

“Specific disabilities are not named in the statute allowing for a broad interpretation. All major diseases and illnesses are included...

“The duty to accommodate is well established in case law and requires employers and service providers to accommodate special needs short of undue hardship, including those of people with disabilities.

“Many references sources exist for understanding and addressing issues ...we often refer to... Canadian Human Rights Commission

(PDF) Perceived Disability Protection page 1/2  4th paragraph

"...the court held that the rules regarding construction of statutes support a broad interpretation of the word ‘handicap' which can include anomalies that do not cause functional limitations and can also include ailments related to health.

...the terms handicap and disability include and actual or perceived disability. The emphasis is on the effect of the extinction or exclusion and not on the precise nature of the handicap, nor its cause or origin which are immaterial. In addition, the Charter also prohibits discrimination based on the possibility that an individual may develop a handicap in the future.

“The term ‘handicap’ must not be confined within a narrow definition that leaves no room for flexibility”...

NEW STUDY on Long-Term Use of Mobile and Cordless Phones

Dr. Erica Maller-Blythe – Electomagnetic Radiation, Health and Children 2014 (1:10 mins)
"Dr Erica Mallery-Blythe presented this outstanding talk on electromagnetic fields and their possible effects at a meeting of the Physicians' Health Initiative for Radiation and Environment (PHIRE). In this talk she discussed the difficulty of assessing exposure accurately, the various known mechanistic effects of electromagnetic fields, and the varied susceptibility of human beings to different exposures of various kind. This is one of the best you'll find anywhere at the moment to learn about some of the possible effects of mobile phones, cordless phones, WiFi and tablets, and it's freely available online.”

Teenage Brain Tumour Epidemic – What Parents Don’t Know About Cellphones
The Dean of School of Public Health at the State University of New York, David Carpenter said, “Children are spending significant time on mobile phones. We may be facing a public health crisis in an epidemic of brain cancers as a result of mobile phone use.”

Decreased Survival of Glioma Patients with Astrocytoma Grade IV (Glioblastoma Multiforme) Associated with Long-Term Use of Mobile and Cordless Phones
New report and a call for an increase in IARC classification of RF radiation from a 2a (probable) human carcinogen to a 1—A HUMAN CARCINOGEN!! //
“Highest HR was found for cases with first use before the age of 20 years. These results indicate a survival disadvantage for use of wireless phones in that patient group.”

Group lobbies for wi-fi free school
We are also asking for one school at each level to be free of wireless technology to accommodate children with EHS and give choice to parents with health concerns from microwave radiation exposure. As per parents and teachers resolutions
