Subject: Rescind these unjustly cuts by making the funding the same for all students no matter what venue they decide to use
Date: Mon, 25 May 2020 19:36:54 -0700
From: lori <>

Dear Mr. Rob Fleming,
As a single working mom with two children who relies on my family to support their education with the Independent Distributed Learning (IDL) school, the government’s decision to cut $12 million in funding will severely impact the programming, staffing, and resources available for my children. 

The IDL School, Fawkes Academy, has been there to support my children who were denied accommodation in the public school system by providing them with a full educational program.  As a concerned parent who has researched the thousands of peer reviewed studies from medical experts and scientists proving harm from the mandatory microwave radiation emitting from wireless devices in our public schools, our government has left us no choice but to home-school my children. 
The IDL Schools budgets for the 2020/21 are already set in place, which means the $793.00 deficiency will have to be passed onto the parents by charging tuition fees or increase tuition already in place.  This decision will have a huge impact on low-income families, special needs, and people living in the remote rural areas of BC.
My children have the right to equality, equal opportunity, fair treatment, and consistent access to quality education, no matter their circumstances or where they live.  We are calling on the Education Minister; Rob Fleming to rescind these unjustly cuts by making the funding the same for all students no matter what venue they decide to use, especially when the public school system refuses to provide a healthy, safe environment for learning.

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.
