City, school board need to protect kids from effects of Wi-Fi

While I applaud Interior Health for supporting parents’ call for a smoke-free environment for children, I cannot understand the lack of concern for children being exposed to carcinogenic radiation right inside their schools and school rooms, and now, as a result of the recent vote by Salmon Arm city council, exposure to radiation every time the family goes for an outing to local parks and recreation areas.

Hiding behind ‘Safety Code 6,’ which is the guideline put out by Health Canada, is a poor excuse for refusing to look into all of the information we have been sending to news outlets and presenting in local meetings in an effort to protect all of our children, as well as teachers and other staff from this very serious threat to their health.

Parents of School District #83: Shuswap, are you keeping informed about this?

Go to www.citizensforsafetechnology.org.

Get informed if you are not yet, and help protect teachers, volunteers and children.

Tell the school board we do not want our children and grandchildren’s brains fried at school. We want wired not wireless.

I am retired a teacher and grandmother of eight, whom I hope and pray will make it to graduation without brain tumors as a result of lack of action on the part of those in positions of responsibility.

Since children cannot speak for themselves, we must.
