G M O FOODS: Why would Bell Media say there is NO evidence of danger when there IS evidence of danger?

Aug. 31, 2016:  CFAX Radio in Victoria is owned by Bell Media. On August 29th, one of their hosts said there is Zero Evidence GMO foods are harmful in any way.

That’s fine, except there IS evidence GMOs are harmful.  (see bottom)

The host certainly doesn’t have to believe the evidence GMOs are harmful. He can talk about ‘industry evidence’ saying GMOs are safe. But how can he say there is NO evidence GMOs are harmful – when there IS evidence. Continue reading

Interesting Experience Holding a Vigil out side the Legislature.

By Norm Ryder.

Many examples of the government and Worksafe/WCAT abuse and bullying of the most vulnerable – an injured worker almost by definition is in the category of the most vulnerable, One is left with the impression that it is government policy to bully the disadvantaged and the more they are disadvantaged the more they qualify to be bullied.

One certainly can not accuse the government or its agencies of caring and compassion. The government among other gifts to the least vulnerable in their recent budget have decided the richest 2 % should be given 230 million a year or $690 over 3 years in breaks and advantages. Contrast this to the $170 million over 3 years they are providing the least advantaged of the disabled. Continue reading

Why a Cell Tower Should Be In No One’s Backyard

By Norm Ryder.

From Cell Tower Siting Considerations

During the process of reviewing the scientific papers regarding the harmful effects of Electromagnetic Radiation I have noted that up until approximately the 1990’s the research generally noted there were harmful effects from the radiation. During the period that cell phones and data communication devices started to gain widespread use use a number of professional opinions that the radiation could not possibly cause harm began to appear. In virtually every case the people offering the opinion had ties to the telecom industry.

More recently the weight of scientific papers on the topic has shifted with a greater number of the more recent papers noting a number of reasons for concern regarding exposure to Electromagnetic Radiation even at low levels or power densities. The papers noting a variety of concerns also were more often written by scientists with no ties to the telecom industry.

A comparison between the way the telecom industry is attempting to use all their considerable economic clout to sway the science to the well documented tactics used by large pharmaceutical companies and the tobacco industry to sway the public knowledge and concerns about the health effects of their product quickly comes to mind. An example of industry “buying” favourable positions is Dual chairs when Ystad bought Apple computers to students & Teachers extra work can give Apple benefits to school

Radiation Danger zones around Wifi and other personal communication Devices

By Norm Ryder.

All electrical and electronic equipment emit Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR), fortunately most devices do not emit high levels of EMR. The ones of prime concern are those that emit radio signals. These include but not limited to: Cell Phones, Cordless Phones, Laptop, Tablets, Baby Wireless Monitors, Wireless Routers. The laptop this is being written on emits approximately 25 milivolts per meter (Electric Field) when turned on, 25 more when the charger is plugged in and regularly over 1000 milivolts when on Wifi. To determine the Power Density would would also need to measure the amps per meter (Magnetic Field). Few radiation meters measure the Amps per meter. These regular meters calculate the amp reading based on established physics when the measurements are in the far field or at a distance from the source.

Yes this is a topic that few of us are aware of or understand on first reading. More explanation of the physics of Radio Frequency is in Cell Tower Siting Considerations. An excerpt on Near Field Radiation is in the pdf accompanying this article. The full booklet is available on request by contacting worksafe@sios.ca .

The radiation field around a transmitting device is divided into 3 primary zones: the Near, Far and a zone that is called the Intermediate or Transition zone – a blend of the other 2.

figure A1 - General antenna field regions
Safety Code 6 (SC6) Radio Frequency Exposure Compliance Evaluation Template (Uncontrolled Environment Exposure Limits) Industry Canada Technical Note-261

In the near field Spectacular peaks and Valleys of radiation intensity can occur, the radiation pattern is considered to be difficult to model if it is possible to model it. In the Radio Frequency Tool Kit For Environmental Health Practitioners by the BC Centre for Disease Control (BCCCDC) the near field zone is referred to as chaotic. In his zone both Industry Canada (IC) and the BCCDC specify both the Electric Field and Magnetic Fields must be measured in several locations to obtain the true power density readings.

The extent of the danger zones around an emitting device is determined by a series of calculations based on the frequency (wavelength) and size of the antenna. Additional confusions can be introduced by interference from other sources, reflected energy, stored energy and antenna design and imperfections to name a few of the other sources of complexity that may possibly exist.

The Danger zone around a cell phone can be consider to be in the order of 0.1 m and greater if the phone is using wifi. A cell phone antenna – even ones on roof tops over 12 meters to the extreme danger limit and 50 meters to the high danger zone. Larger antennas or higher frequencies could extend these distances considerably. A home wifi router the minimum distance to the extremely dangerous zone limit 0.1 and to the highly dangerous zone 0.3 meters (1 ft). For a laptop assume distance in excess of 1 meter and 4 meters respectively.

TAKEDOWN


By Anne from Saltspring Island.

I am temporarily nesting in a small, simple cabin over the winter months. It overlooks a green, dreamy lake mirrored in magnificence by a thick array of trees standing tall and proud. Each morning, flocks of vocal feathered friends and I greet our connection to all this splendour. This particular morning, however, would be so profoundly different for me, a personal revelation or am I yet another humble conduit for the earth’s urgent message? It began with a glimpse of a delicate, golden leaf spiralling down in its dance to the ground. This very ordinary sight would yield the deeply unsettling reminder that unlike the leaf who in its “aliveness” gives us breath and in its “death” gives enrichment, sadly humanity is only offering up our dance of destruction.

We are the TAKERS. We take the soil, digging, extracting and contaminating. We take the water resources of lakes, streams and rivers and destroy their precious purpose of sustaining all life. We bulldoze paradise and replace it with arteries of highways, sterile big-box stores, half-empty, paved parking lots and vast swaths of suburbia bursting with larger-than-necessary houses filled with our plastic possessions. We take over the oceans of glorious undersea gardens housing majestic creatures of the deep and fill them with toxic dead zones of our waste while endless cargo ships, floating hotels and large fishing fleets leave depletion and destruction in their wake. We take over the skies with invisible highways choked with airplanes, belching smoke stacks, noxious clouds and faded blue. We take over mountains, disturbing their pure and silent majesty with year-round playgrounds for our noisy, self-indulgent amusement. We take away the magic of the changing seasons with our incessant whining of dissatisfaction. Continue reading

Was Paris a False Flag Attack?

Canada’s Corporate Media spreads fear and lies – but little truth.

(Nov. 29, 2015) We know Paris may be a False Flag attack because it’s been done before. In 1980 a CIA operation called Gladio bombed Italy’s busiest train station killing and injuring nearly 300. It was done to destabilize Italy and keep Corporate Governments in power. The bombing was part of a decades long U.S. backed murder and terror campaign throughout Europe. (Google: Operation Gladio)

The people of Western Europe have built fairly democratic and ‘social-democratic’ countries. They are leaders on Climate Change and stopping GMOs. Europe won’t sign trade deals to give corporations yet more power. Canada and the United States WILL sign them. The Corporations hate this European democracy, and it’s possible they are behind creating fear and anger across Europe in order to bring in more ‘friendly’ governments. So questions must be asked. I don’t SAY Paris was a False Flag attack, but there must be a full and open investigation so we know some truth other than the corporate truth. Continue reading

Justice In Chains. Jessica Ernst And Slick Water.

By Robin Mathews

“Slick Water”, of course, is the feel of good water when changed by Fracking poisons. It is good water invaded by (Corporation-imposed secret) human-and-plant-destroying poisons pumped underground during “Fracking” (hydraulic fracturing of natural underground strata) to “retrieve” oil and/or natural gas. Those poisons then find their way into the agricultural and drinking water of unsuspecting people who reside (usually) not far from the work of those giant, care less, private Corporations which – all too often – have bought-and-paid-for government regulators and politicians in power. The poisons … then make ill, maim, and even kill plants, animals, and human beings.

The enormity of the damage to land and water and creatures, the outrageous invasion of the sanctity of innocent people, and the permanent tragedies created could only be possible in a world where Big Corporations have become, in fact, law-makers and enforcers in a world where corporate crime is accepted as normal behaviour.

The Flaws of Work Safe BC

By Norm Ryder.

During a 5 year battle with Work Safe BC – and their captive appeal division, The Workers Compensation Appeal Tribunal (WCAT), I have met many injured workers experiencing similar levels of frustration and exasperation. For some, depression and other clinical stress diagnosis is an appropriate diagnosis to express their state of mind. Continue reading

Canada Health

By Will Smith.

More people should be moving here to Canada, as we have the most powerful health-magic in the world.

In France, vaccines are dangerous and people are now avoiding them. They are obviously ignorant – the only thing they need to do is move to Canada! Here in BC the government announced that vaccines for children are safe, and they are going to force parents to explain the reason, if their child is going to school without having been vaccinated!

BC Legislature Meets on Petronas Give-Away Bill

No Fracking(July 13, 2015): Citizens interrupted Christy Clark as she spoke in the Legislature on Monday introducing a Bill to sell British Columbia out to Petronas. Ms. Clark, with the assistance of the NDP, plans to have this Bill passed within two weeks, before most people realize what’s being done to us and our province.

Your MLAs DON’T want to hear from you on the Petronas deal,
but you CAN tell them what you think …

THE LIBERAL CAUCUS CAN BE REACHED AT: 250 356-6171
THE NDP CAUCUS CAN BE REACHED AT: 250 387-3655
ANDREW WEAVER OF THE GREENS AT: 250 472-8528

Media won’t say F Word: The Corporate Media pretends it’s all about jobs, as if they cared about jobs. They don’t, the media care about Corporate Profits. The media pretend BC will get a lot of money from this, which is NOT true. And the media refuse to say the word Fracking, which is what the Petronas deal is all about. They intend to POISON this province with fracking.

Thank you Christy Clark, John Horgan, our wonderful MLAs, and the corporate media. This is truly one of the greatest betrayals in BC history.
