MPs Who Care

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

We are asking all Members of Parliament 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)

DISCLAIMER

In compliance with section 550 of the Canada Elections Act, your pre election commitment to this issue ended 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 MPs Who Care commitment is intended to limit, nor will it limit, your freedom of action in Parliament  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

HESA 2015 Recap

Health Canada ignores the scientific research; its review is subject to bias and incorrect conclusions

Health Canada and Industry Canada ignore recommendations from the 2010 Health Committee “offer to provide information, including awareness sessions on exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation.”

In its “fact sheet”, comparing Canada vs. other countries, Health Canada omits countries representing 1.2 billion people with safety levels below Safety Code 6

Health Canada’s statements to the committee conflict with statements made under oath in Quebec Superior Court on Feb 13th, 2013

Health Canada admits there are no studies regarding the cumulative effects of several devices from wireless radiation

Health Canada ignores the 2010 Health Committee recommendation to “ensure that it has a process in place to receive and respond to reports of adverse reactions to electromagnetic radiation emitting devices.”

Health Canada resists the request to have a database that physicians may be asked to look at any kind of possible cause and effect on new cancers among people?

Scientific expert calls for a special category for pregnant women
