Ontario, Canada: Transmitting 'Smart' Meters Call to Action

 

'Smart' Meters recap and *Call 4 Action*‏

Dear Toronto Dowsers and Friends,
 
     Yesterday afternoon I went to the Ontario Legislature at Queens Park to sit in on the STANDING COMMITTEE ON GENERAL GOVERNMENT meeting for the discussions on  Bill 235, an Act to enact the Energy Consumer Protection Act (ECPA), 2010, and to amend other Acts. This was my first time at such an ... 'event' ...
 
     Here is the agenda of those who spoke, pro and con:

     I still can not figure this out:  NO  ONE  brought up the damage to health. It does not seem to be a part of the discussions.  As if it does not even exist.

We have observed biological proof:

Telecommunications

"Regulations for telecommunications are based upon avoiding heating of tissue as a result of exposure to electromagnetic radiation. However, other biological phenomena are both plausible and observed at much lower exposure levels."

http://www.chrc-ccdp.ca/research_program_recherche/esensitivities_hypersensibilitee/page7-en.asp

and

"Electromagnetic fields and radiation damage DNA and enhance cell death rates and therefore they are a Ubiquitous Universal Genotoxic Carcinogen that enhances the rates of Cancer, Cardiac, Reproductive and Neurological disease and mortality in human populations. Therefore there is no safe threshold level. The only safe exposure level is zero, a position confirmed by dose-response trends in epidemiological studies."

     One of the main purposes of this bill relates to SUITE METERING.  Below is the problem they are trying to solve and the proposed solution.
 
     Problem:  No framework to install suite metering in rental apartment buildings.   
     Solution:  Enable mandatory installation in new residential buildings.
                      Voluntary installation in existing buildings.
 
     What I cannot figure out is --- if this bill is passed, and these 'Smart' Meters installed --- it means that POOF!  there will be a half million more devices (400 just in my apartment building!) emitting RF (Radio Frequency).
 
     Utility companies are installing these meters at homes. Just going out and doing it without written fully informed consent about health risks to humans, pets, wildlife and plant life. Not asking. Sensitive people are reacting. Very unfavourably.
 
     Doesn't anyone there remember what happened to Marie Curie?  Does anyone there even know who she was????  No, of course this is not radioactivity!  But it is a new technology that needs proven research and study on the biological effects to take precedent over convenience.

================================================
 
  ***!!!   ACTION REQUEST:   call or fax or email.  plz.

========================
========================
    
     This is a bill sponsored by Liberals with a Liberal majority. There is a good chance, that at this point, it will be passed. WHAT WE WANT TO SEE --- are:  AMENDMENTS
 
       WOULD YOU PLEASE  --- contact the members on this committee and/or your own MPP --- BY *FRIDAY* afternoon --- via fax, phone or email --- expressing your concern about the probable deleterious health effects of the installation of individual and widespread 'Smart' metering ---- if this legislation is allowed to go through? Unless, of course, you don't mind increasing the density of the EMF soup you and all other living beings exist in.
 
     If each MPP gets *just* 10 comments like this, it could make them listen up!
   
     Perhaps they can be reminded of the cell phone towers in their neighborhoods that were dismantled due to public pressure about their harmful health effects?????  Do they want a repeat?   How about higher OHIP bills?
 
       Sensitive people have reported headaches, dizziness, weakness if even ONE! 'Smart' Meter is installed on their home. I heard of one near-death experience from someone very ill, unable to cope with this extra burden of Radio Frequency.
 
     MPP info listing:

     The key committee people seem to be:
Government:  Dave Levac   LIB / Brant  (in favor)
Opposition:  John Yakabuski   PC / Renfrew--Nipissing--Pembroke
Peter Tabuns, MPP (Toronto--Danforth) , NDP
Vice-Chair:  Helena Jaczek   LIB / Oak Ridges--Markham
 
     Also present March 22, 2010:
Yasir Naqvi, MPP (Ottawa Centre)  - LIB
Bill Mauro, MPP (Thunder Bay--Atikokan)  - LIB
Kuldip Kular, MPP (Bramalea--Gore--Malton)  - LIB
Bob Chiarelli, MPP (Ottawa West--Nepean)  - LIB
 
     On the committee, but not present:
Steve Clark, MPP (Leeds--Grenville) PC
Joyce Savoline, MPP (Burlington) PC
 
     I don't know if this will work. Heck, I don't even know how this process works!  But it seems reasonable. I was the last person out of the committee room because I was having a chat with Trevor Day, the committee clerk, and what I'm doing seems the best way to do something at this time....
 
    Can you imagine what must be happening to the brains of children?  Especially as they are so soft and unformed?!!!
 
     Ask yourself:  WHY are they continuing to push this, especially as a January 7, 2010 article in the Toronto Sun, proves that consumers experienced an increase in fees:

     Related to this is a blurbie I heard on CoasttoCoast at 1:37  this a.m., which could help:

HEALTH EFFECTS: 

Here are just a few:
 
     Pulsed transmissions are the type that are most likely to disrupt brain function.  (NB: when biochemists are speaking of calcium ions "bound" to membranes, we have to remember that this "binding" is electrical in nature. This is why EMF and RF can disrupt it, disrupting calcium metabolism.)

The Biological Effects of Weak Electromagnetic Fields

"Abstract :
 
1. Well-replicated studies have shown that weak electromagnetic fields remove calcium ions bound to the membranes of living cells, making them more likely to tear, develop temporary pores and leak.  
 
2. "DNAase (an enzyme that destroys DNA) leaking through the membranes of lysosomes (small bodies in living cells packed with digestive enzymes) explains the fragmentation of DNA seen in cells exposed to mobile phone signals. When this occurs in the germ line (the cells that give rise to eggs and sperm), it reduces fertility and predicts genetic damage in future generations.

3. Leakage of calcium ions into the cytosol (the main part of the cell) acts as a
metabolic stimulant, which accounts for reported accelerations of growth and
healing, but it also promotes the growth of tumours.

4. Leakage of calcium ions into neurones (brain cells) generates spurious action
potentials (nerve impulses) accounting for pain and other neurological symptoms
in electro‐sensitive individuals. It also degrades the signal to noise ratio of the brain
making it less likely to respond adequately to weak stimuli. This may be partially
responsible the increased accident rate of drivers using mobile phones.

5. A more detailed examination of the molecular mechanisms explains many of the
seemingly weird characteristics of electromagnetic exposure, e.g. why weak fields
are more effective than strong ones, why some frequencies such as 16Hz are
especially potent and why pulsed fields do more damage."

     Plz pass on to your networks what you feel is relevant.  tx.
 
     Okay, that is enough from me for now on this. I have to get back to preparing the submission and other stuff. Whatever I hand to the committee clerk tomorrow, he copies and gives to the committee members.  I'm hand delivering it.

 
"Those who do not wish to make an oral presentation but wish to comment on the Bill may send written submissions to the Committee Clerk at the address below by 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 24, 2010."

     Yes, I am endeavoring to be mindful to not overwhelm you with this info; keep in mind this is wayyy more than 'just' a Toronto issue; if you are not here, just hope this does not happen in your locality; perhaps our efforts here and now can make the difference.
 
Thank you again.
