Leaders lacking on EMR issue

A study at University Hospital in Sweden called for electromagnetic radiation (EMR/EMF) to be reclassified from a class 2a

A study at University Hospital in Sweden called for electromagnetic radiation (EMR/EMF) to be reclassified from a class 2a (probable) to a class 1 human carcinogen.

This information is based on a 2014 study using information gathered from 1997-2003 and 2007-2009.

I don’t imagine that EMR would be less of a cancer risk in Salmon Arm than it would be in Sweden.

Sweden’s safety level is 0.1 µW/cm² and Canada’s safety level is 1000 µW/cm² or 10,000 times more lenient.

Why do the federal and provincial politicians insist that we live in such a cancerous environment?

Why does city council and city staff insist that we and our children live in such a cancer-causing environment?

City council is supposed to provide its citizens with a safe environment, regardless of what information (true or false) they are given. Does it sound safe to you? The only way to measure the total EMR in Salmon Arm is with a Spectrum Analyzer. Neither the telecommunications companies, Industry Canada, nor the City of Salmon Arm has one.

So who is doing the measuring to ensure that we are safe?
