Telus Censoring Community Television

Can a Corporation support ‘Community’ ?

(Feb. 27, 2015) Above is a ‘Community Television’ program Telus said Canadians could not see because it did not meet the Telus ‘balance’ requirement . Please have a look and see what you think. Perhaps start with segment 2 (at 21:40) – a discussion of the terror attack at the Charlie Hebdo offices in Paris. Segment 3 (40:15) is about climate change; Segment 1 is ‘various’.

We told Telus their refusal to show the program raises issues of ‘freedom of the press’. Telus assured us they support a free press, and asked us to resubmit the program. We will … but Telus policy also has to change. Continue reading

School Boards Left On The Hook For Wi-Fi Injuries. By Janis Hoffman

School officials could be personally liable for exposing children and staff to microwave radiation in our schools.

School districts, school boards and school medical health officers have been notified that Lloyd’s of London has now excluded any liability coverage for injuries, “directly or indirectly arising out of, resulting from or contributed to by electromagnetic fields, electromagnetic radiation, electromagnetism, radio waves or noise.” This would include the microwave radiation emitting from the commercial wi-fi transmitters and wireless devices in our schools.

In response to a request for clarification, this response was received on Feb. 18, 2015 from CFC Underwriting LTD, London, UK agent for Lloyd’s:

“The Electromagnetic Fields Exclusion (Exclusion 32) is a General Insurance Exclusion and is applied across the market as standard. The purpose of the exclusion is to exclude cover for illnesses caused by continuous long-term non-ionizing radiation exposure i.e. through mobile phone usage.”

Lloyd’s of London, one of the world’s largest insurance companies often leads the way in protection by taking on risks that no one else will. At the end of this article there is a copy of a recent renewal policy which, as of Feb. 7, 2015, excludes any coverage associated with exposure to non-ionizing radiation.

In 2011 the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) dropped a bombshell on the wireless industry. They designated exposure to wi-fi radiation to be a possible human carcinogen. As well in the 1990s illnesses resulting from asbestos exposure, covered by Lloyd’s at the time, almost destroyed the insurance company. Due to these issues, it appears Lloyd’s is acting fast to avoid another such financial fiasco by not covering illnesses that result from exposure to wireless radiation. Continue reading
