Cell towers on the agenda
The North Okanagan Shuswap Smart Meter Awareness Group has organized a meeting for tonight, Wednesday, Oct. 23 at 7 p.m. in the North Canoe Hall to discuss the two cell phone towers going up in Canoe near Canoe Forest Products.
Speaking will be Una St. Clair, director and founder of Citizens for Safe Technology Society.
The purpose of the local group, it states, is to educate the public on the dangers of smart meters, smart appliances, dirty electricity, cell towers, Wi-Fi, safer cellphone use, cordless phones, computers, iPads, laptops, electronic toys and everything else that uses remote switching around the home and workplace such as baby monitors and garage door openers.
In a press release, the group asks how it is possible for the microwave radiation cell towers to be erected when the World Health Organization states the radiation is classified as a probable cause of cancer.
“By the precautionary principle, populations around the world are to be protected by avoiding these microwave frequencies until proven safe,” it reads. “This is in the same category as DDT, mercury, tobacco, asbestos etc., which all started out as WHO Class 2B possible carcinogens, and look at them now.”
