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

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

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

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!

We’ll have to Pay Petronas to stop FRACKING us

Legislature Meets July 13 to Sell Us Out

(July 8, 2015): The British Columbia Legislature begins sitting Monday July 13 to ratify a landmark ‘Agreement’ between BC and corporate giant Petronas.

The Christy Clark agreement locks BC into a decades long tax and royalty plan. The taxes and royalties will be low … so BC will get as little money as possible – and the deal cannot be changed without full compensation to the industry. We are being locked into an economic disaster. Continue reading

Christy Clark’s ‘PETRONAS GIVE-AWAY BILL’ goes to B.C. Legislature July 13

(July 2, 2015) British Columbia’s corporate owned media remained silent on Canada Day as one of the most corrupt and undemocratic Bills in B.C. history moves closer to being passed.

The people we elected to represent us – will meet in Victoria beginning July 13 to pass a Bill to ratify a secret agreement between Petronas and BC premier Christy Clark. (Google: Christy Clark Petronas PDA)

The details of the Clark / Petronas Agreement, signed in May, remain secret, although Ms. Clark says we ‘may’ see it on July 13. Continue reading

Christy Clark’s Secret Deal with Petronas to Be Approved in July

Legislature meets July 13 …

(June 27, 2015): The BC Legislature will meet in July to put into law a secret agreement signed last month by Christy Clark and LNG giant PETRONAS. Premier Clark has so far refused to tell us citizens what is in the Petronas PDA (project development agreement). However, we will be committed to the deal by this legislation – which could be passed in one or two weeks.

According to the Victoria Times Colonist: The deal includes a concession that … ‘no BC government has ever granted’. This is believed to be a GUARANTEE of NO future changes to the tax and royalty structures included in the deal. So Christy is committing us to never changing a deal – which we have not been able to see. The TC also says: ‘It is a measure of how radical this is that special legislation is required to put it in place.’ Continue reading

Why is Christy Clark Poisoning British Columbia?

No Fracking

No Fracking

(June 23, 2015) Christy Clark does not work for the people of BC, and nor does she care about us. Christy works for Corporate Canada, and they will make a lot of money by poisoning us. Christy’s job is to help them.

Corporate Canada wants BC’s oil, gas, water, metals, forests, and etc. And they have no intention of reducing their profits by one penny to protect the environment, or the people who live here. Continue reading
