mps that care

In June 2015 the Conservatives, Liberals, and NDP on the Parliamentary Health Committee unanimously voted to educate and protect Canadians from the growing concern around wireless radiation.

This past October we asked all candidates running for Member of Parliament, if elected, to agree to support efforts to work with Health Canada and other appropriate agencies and organizations to:

• Develop an awareness campaign relating to the safe use of wireless technologies, such as cell phones and Wi-Fi, in key environments such as the school and home.
(see official HESA recommendation)
 Investigate, and potentially adopt, measures taken in other countries to limit the exposure of vulnerable populations, including infants, and young children in the school environment to radiofrequencies.
(see official HESA recommendation)
• Improve the testing, diagnosis, treatment and data collection regarding electromagnetic hypersensitivity and its possible impact on health in the workplace.
(see official HESA recommendation)
 Establish a system to report potential adverse reactions to radiofrequency fields.
(see official HESA recommendation)

DISCLAIMER:
In compliance with section 550 of the Canada Elections Act, your Candidates Who Care commitment to this election issue ends on polling day and places no obligation on you to follow a particular course of action either now or in the future. Nothing in this Candidates Who Care commitment is intended to limit, nor will it limit, your freedom of action in Parliament if elected and Canadians For Safe Technology will not rely on it to attempt to achieve such a result. This is consistent with some other similar federal campaigns such as the FCM Hometown Proud one found at http://hometownproud.fcm.ca/commitment
