Thank you to the leadership and students of Westwind Montessori Junior High – your investigative spirit was recognized by MP Terence Young in the House of Commons yesterday.
“Citizens 4 Safe Technology, C4ST, are calling for caution with cellular tower antennae that emit radiofrequency radiation. The World Health Organization says RF radiation is possibly carcinogenic, and some people suffer physical symptoms from it, including the former Head of the World Health Organization, Dr. Gro Brundtland. The children at Westwind Montessori Junior High in Oakville have researched the issue, they know children are more at risk to RF radiation, and decided to take wi‐fi out of their own school. The Federation of Canadian Municipalities’ Template for Public Consultation is voluntary and leaves a gaping loophole, which is existing structures. In Oakville, Bell Canada has by stealth placed multiple antennae just 11 metres from a child’s bedroom. Their business is booming, and legally they don’t have to care, but, ethically, how can Bell callously ignore the legitimate health concerns of Canadians—many of whom are their own customers. Today, I call on Bell Canada, for the second time in this house, listen to the children, move the Bell antennae away from homes and schools. Thank you, Speaker.” – MP Terence Young
