The New York State United Teachers (NYSUT) union hosted a webinar on Tuesday the 9th of December entitled “Risks of wireless technologies and how to protect children and staff in schools”, featuring an excellent presentation by Dr Magda Havas of Trent University in Canada.

The talk covered the basic background of where radio frequency electromagnetic fields fit in the electromagnetic spectrum and the increase in public exposure over the past 10-15 years. It discussed the number of adverse health effects that are associated with RF exposure, including increased incidence in brain tumours, increased foetal risk, decreased fertility and a wide array of other non-fatal effects such as memory loss, depression and sleeping disorders, with scientific references for each.

We are classroom teachers, college and university faculty and professional staff, school bus drivers, custodians, secretaries, cafeteria workers, teacher assistants and aides, nurses and healthcare technicians.

NYSUT is a federation of more than 1,200 local unions, each representing its own members. We are affiliated with the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) and the National Education Association (NEA). We are also part of organized labor – the AFL-CIO – and of Education International, with more than 20 million members world wide.

Magda Havas is Associate Professor of Environmental & Resource Studies at Trent University where she teaches and does research on the biological effects of environmental contaminants. Dr. Havas received her Ph.D. from the University of Toronto, completed Post-Doctoral research at Cornell University, and taught at the University of Toronto before going to Trent University in Peterborough, Canada.

Magda Havas began research on acid rain and metal pollution in 1975 and worked at the Smoking Hills in the Canadian arctic, in Ontario near the INCO and Falconbridge metal smelters, and at Hubbard Brook in New Hampshire. She was Science Advisor to the Canadian Coalition on Acid Rain and her research (and that of others) helped bring in clean air legislation (Eastern Canadian Acid Rain Program) in 1985 that reduced sulphur dioxide emissions by 30% and lead to improvements in air and water quality and ultimately resulted in the recovery of lakes, which she also studied. Her paper “Red Herrings in Acid Rain Research” confronted the misconceptions that were being perpetrated about acid rain and its effects. Dr. Havas’ research since the 1990s is concerned with the biological effects of electromagnetic pollution including radio frequency radiation, electromagnetic fields, dirty electricity, and ground current. She works with diabetics as well as with individuals who have multiple sclerosis, tinnitus, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia and those who are electrically hypersensitive. She also conducts research on sick building syndrome as it relates to power quality in schools.

The Honorable Christy Clark

Premier of British Columbia

PO BOX 9041



V8W 9E1

Dear Premier Clark,

Health Crisis Looms in British Columbia

Because Province Remains Ignorant of Non-Thermal Radiation!

Preface: British Columbia’s Provincial Health Officer, Dr. Perry Kendall, continues to be ignorant

of non-thermal radiation and is putting all British Columbians at risk because he is also either

not aware of or will not heed that three of the world’s largest insurance companies: Lloyds of

London, Swiss Re and Allianz all refuse to underwrite cell phone devices against damage to

users’ health.;


The evidence is overwhelming, compelling and irrefutable that radio frequency radiation (RFR),

which includes microwaves, and electromagnetic field (EMF) radiation are harmful to humans

and all living things. The evidence is equally compelling and irrefutable that Health Canada’s

Radiation Protection Bureau and their colleagues in Industry Canada are – and have been for

many years – deeply entrenched with the corrupt U.S. military / government / industrial complex

(which President Dwight D. Eisenhower warned the American people about in 1961). [1] [2]

Military-funded scientists have known for more than 60 years that there are two kinds of

non-ionizing radiation: thermal and non-thermal. And Soviet/Russian and U.S.

militaries in particular have spent vast sums of money developing and perfecting

electronic weapons of war capitalizing on the known properties and characteristics of

non-thermal microwave radiation – especially pulsed non-thermal radiation. Years ago

their research found that frequencies within the 1-5 GHz band in particular can affect

the neurological, immune and central nervous systems of humans! [3] They have long

known that the human brain is exquisitely sensitive and can detect man-made radiation

signals that are many millions of times weaker than those emitted by all of today’s

wireless devices! [4] [5] [6] [7] [8]

Yet these are the very same frequencies that ignorant, gullible and greedy governments

permit an equally ignorant, greedy and exploitive wireless and telecom industry to utilize

in baby monitors, Smart Meters, cell phones, Smart phones, cordless phones, Wi-Fi

routers, Wi-Fi and WiMAX networks, laptop and tablet computers, TV games, etc. Every

one of these devices emit pulsed non-thermal microwave radiation! Some of them,

such as Smart Meters, cell phone towers, cordless phones, Wi-Fi routers, Wi-Fi and

Prepared by Jerry FlynnPage 1

WiMAX hotspots etc., never shut off; they emit their harmful radiation constantly

24/7/365 in perpetuity! [9]

Yet Dr. Perry Kendall, like his masters in Health Canada’s corrupt Radiation Protection

Bureau and their equally corrupt colleagues in the WHO (World Health Organization),

ICNIRP (International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection), IEEE/ICES

(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) / (International Committee on

Electromagnetic Safety) and the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) refuses

to recognize that there are adverse biological effects from non-thermal radiation! [10]

Nor will Dr. Kendall nor Health Canada nor any of the previously mentioned ‘authorities’

recognize that there is such a thing as electro-hypersensitivity or “EHS”, even though it was first

reported by Germany in 1932 and has been treated widely throughout Russia and elsewhere

since the 1950s, including in the USA! EHS today is recognized by many countries including

Australia, France, Germany, Israel, the U.K, and even by many scientists within the corrupt

WHO. The first ‘celebrity’ to reveal she suffers from EHS was former Director General of the

WHO: Dr. Gro Harlem Brundtland, MD, MPH, a former two-time Prime Minister of Norway!

Sweden considers EHS a physical impairment and recognizes it as a disability for which

government and private sector employers must make provision for those affected by it in the

workplace. [11] [12]

Numerous world-class scientists from every corner of the globe have said essentially the same

thing: that the public’s increasing exposure to long-term, low-level, pulsed, non-thermal,

radio frequency radiation poses the single biggest threat to human health in our entire history!

Yet Dr. Kendall refuses to divorce himself from Health Canada in order to protect British


Premier Clark, it is imperative that you and your administration grasp the full import of

the above. It means that, because of Dr. Kendall’s gross dereliction of duty, all British

Columbians, including you, your son, and your entire administration, have been – and

are today – needlessly, callously and criminally exposed to levels of radiation that no

decent democratic society would knowingly permit – given the unassailable evidence

that has existed but been suppressed and hidden for decades! [13] [14] By his actions,

Dr. Kendall, at best, is morally guilty of a heinous crime against humanity, for he has

shamefully put at risk the very health and well-being of the entire population of British


Were it not for him, Wi-Fi and cell phones would not be allowed in BC schools; cell

phone towers would not be allowed on public buildings, and he could have – and should

have – spoken out to the Federal Government urging them not to allow cell towers on

daycare centres, hospitals, nursing homes, libraries, apartment buildings etc. Were it

not for him, cell towers would not be allowed near schools or residential buildings as is

the case in Russia. [15]

Premier Clark, why has Dr. Kendall allowed teachers and children to be exposed to Class 2B

carcinogens when the BC Occupational Safety regulations say that no worker should be

exposed to them if a practicable alternative exists? Wired internet access is/was available in

virtually every school, making Wi-Fi superfluous, yet Dr. Kendall made an exception for RF

radiation – this 2b carcinogen is allowed everywhere – schools, libraries, hospitals, restaurants,

city streets and parks. He is guilty of allowing and encouraging this.

Were it not for Dr. Kendall, wireless Smart Meters would not be permitted in British

Columbia because they emit what honest scientists the world over know is harmful

radiation, especially in “meshed-networks,” in which every home is envisaged to have

15-or-so ‘Smart Appliances,’ each having its own pulsing microwave transmitter etc.

Were it not for him, countless innocent, helpless British Columbians would not be

subjected to ongoing extortionist fees from electric utilities simply because they insist on

keeping their harmless analogue meters. Countless others defenseless citizens have

shamefully had their power cut off, simply because they too are determined to protect

themselves and their families from this known harmful radiation.

In his capacity of British Columbia’s Provincial Health Officer, Dr. Perry Kendall was and is duty

bound to make and keep himself current with science-based studies conducted by honest, nonindustry

dependent scientists around the world who have produced mountains of evidence –

over many decades – showing that all wireless devices are harmful to humans and all living

things. Events that Dr. Kendall should have brought to the attention of the incumbent Minister of

Health and senior members of government include, in part:

That President Nixon’s own Electromagnetic Radiation Management Advisory

Committee warned him in 1971 that “power levels in and around American cities,

airports ..… and homes may already be biologically significant.” The population

at risk “may well be the entire population.” The consequences of undervaluing or

misjudging the biological effects of long-term, low-level exposure could become a

critical problem for the public health, especially if genetic effects are

involved.” [16]

That President Clinton wrote a formal Memorandum in 1995 stating that

transmitting towers should not be placed on schools or in residential areas. Yet

here in BC they are permitted virtually anywhere and everywhere – on top of

daycare centres, schools, hospitals, nursing homes, apartment buildings etc. [17]

That the BioInitiative 2007 Report (10 world-class scientists from five countries)

recommended all countries of the world adopt radiation Exposure Limits that, for Health

Canada to comply, would require Safety Code 6 be reduced by 10,000 times! [18]

That, in 2008, the ICEMS (International Commission for Electromagnetic Safety)

called for the global application of the “Precautionary Principle” saying that

more protection is needed for pregnancy, newborns, children, and elderly people.

It said the world’s Exposure Limits are “inadequate” as only thermal effects are

considered. It was signed by 56 world-class scientists from 16 countries. [19]

Smart Meters(Cont’d)

Prepared by Jerry FlynnPage 3

That on May of 2011, the WHO classified electromagnetic radiation (from all

emitters) a 2B or “Possible” carcinogen.” World-respected scientists who

participated in those studies have said that: “had the WHO considered all of the

evidence then available, it would have classified it a 2A or Probable if not a 1A or

Definite carcinogen![20][21]

That BC’s Clean Energy Act, Bill C-2010, which mandated Smart Meters be

installed on all dwellings in the province, needed revision because of the WHO’s

2011 classification that all EMR (“radiation”) is a Class 2B ‘Possible”

carcinogen. This reclassification should have caused the government to prevent

electric utilities from using wireless Smart Meters which – especially in “meshednetworks”

– will emit incalculable amounts of toxic radiation 24/7/365 in

perpetuity. Yet Dr. Kendall once again failed to assert his independence in an

effort to protect British Columbians!

That the world’s 2nd largest democracy (second only to India), the Council of

Europe (47 countries, 800-million people), issued a Press Release on May 27,

2011 urging all its member countries to “reconsider” their reliance on ICNIRP’s

radiation Exposure Limits (which are virtually identical to Health Canada’s, the

WHO’s, IEEE’s, FCC’s) which, the release said: “are now considered obsolete as

they recognize only THERMAL radiation and ignore entirely NON-THERMAL

radiation.” It urged its members to follow the recommendations of the BioInitiative

2007 Report. In its release, the Council of Europe also counselled ICNIRP to

revise its standards in order to protect the public, especially pregnant women and

children. [22]

That, in 2012, Salzburg, Austria’s Health Department recommended Exposure Limits:

a) For Outdoors – that were 1-million times lower/safer than Health Canada’s Safety

Code 6, and b) For Indoors – that were 10-million times lower/safer than Safety Code 6!


That the Seletun Scientific Panel Press Release in 2012 warned that the entire

global population is at risk! It recommended new Exposure Limits for powerline

(60 Hz) electromagnetic field radiation that are 1,000 to 10,000 times lower than

today’s Limits. It also recommended new Exposure Limits for radio frequency

radiation that are 50,000 to 60,000 times lower than today’s standards. [24]

That the subsequent BioInitiative 2012 Report (29 authors, 21 PhDs, 10 MDs

from 10 countries), whose findings, if implemented by Health Canada, would

require the radiation Exposure Limits of Safety Code 6 to be reduced by an

inconceivable 3 to 6-million times! [25]

Smart Meters(Cont’d)

Prepared by Jerry FlynnPage 4

That between 1993 and 2013, a total of 81 governments, U.S. Federal agencies

and other organizations banned or warned against wireless technology (i.e., any

and all wireless devices)!

That on July 9, 2014, 53 world-class scientists globally condemned Safety Code

6 and called on Health Canada to intervene in order to avoid a health crisis! [26]

That on July 9, 2014, 22 Canadian scientists condemned Safety Code 6 and

called on Health Canada to protect Canadians from radio frequency radiation!


Premier Clark, surely you realize the gravity, urgency and moral as well as legal

necessity for your government to immediately abandon Health Canada’s scurrilous if not

criminal Safety Code 6 radiation Guidelines with respect to non-thermal radio frequency

radiation (EMR) and electromagnetic field (EMF) radiation. For the sake of all British

Columbians – and your own family – you must insist that your government now heed

the American Academy of Environmental Medicine and other “honest” scientists who

know that continuous exposure to low-level, pulsed, non-thermal microwave

radiation, the kind emitted by all of today’s wireless devices, is linked to, promotes and/

or causes a host of illnesses and diseases, such as: many cancers, neurological

conditions, ADD, sleep disorders, depression, Autism, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s,

cognitive problems, cardiovascular irregularities, hormone disruption, immune

system disorders, metabolism changes, stress, fertility impairment, increased

blood brain barrier permeability, mineral disruption, DNA damage, etc. [28] [29]

Premier Clark, how many thousands of British Columbians have suffered because of Dr.

Kendall’s negligence? How many illnesses and deaths could have been avoided? What

impact has his negligence had on British Columbia’s staggering health care costs? All

because he stubbornly ignored those of us who tried to warn him; all because of his

steadfast, blind allegiance to his masters in Health Canada’s palpably corrupt Radiation

Protection Bureau. Over these past 2-3 years not one of my many letters to or ‘copied

to’ him has even received an acknowledgement let alone a reply. Similarly, my several

attempts to apprise you personally of this debacle have all been met with silence from

your office.

Premier Clark, I implore you to immediately put an end to this inhumane and absolutely

criminal experiment on an uninformed, unsuspecting and utterly helpless public. Surely

your government has no choice now but to immediately: 1) remove Dr. Perry Kendall

from office and replace him with an honest, caring, morally upright, competent medical

specialist who at least has some understanding of the hazards of low-level, pulsed

non-thermal radio frequency radiation (which non-industry scientists know poses the

biggest single threat to our environment in human history!); 2) halt any further roll-out of

Smart Meters; 3) replace all existing Smart Meters with non-harmful, non-radiating

analogue meters; 4) return all Legacy-related ‘extortionist’ fees extracted from the public

by ignorant and unconscionably callous electric utilities within 60 days; 5) impose the

Precautionary Principle on all wireless technology now in use throughout the province;

6) direct that henceforth industry must prove to independent scientists – those having

absolutely no connection to industry – that their technologies are safe to the public

before they will be permitted for use on, in or by the public; 7) immediately institute a

provincial radiation Exposure Limit that, in the short term, complies with the

recommendations of the BioInitiative 2007 Report, until such time as further

independent studies can be done to determine if additional reductions are required; and,

8) because Dr. Kendall has consistently and stubbornly failed to protect British

Columbians against non-thermal radio frequency radiation and electromagnetic field

radiation for the past 15 years, he should be stripped of his OBC award!

I am a retired Canadian Armed Forces Captain who spent 22 of my 26+ years in the

military in Electronic Warfare (EW) and Signals Intelligence (SIGINT), which included

two years in National Defence Headquarters (NDHQ) Ottawa, in the Directorate of

Electronic Warfare (DEW). In my career I worked extensively with U.S. and NATO army

EW units and participated in one major NATO army EW field exercise is Germany. My

EW experience also included operational tours on two Canadian warships. On the

SIGINT side, I worked extensively with NSA and, to a lesser extent, with Britain’s

GCHQ. For two years I was the Executive Officer at one of Canada’s largest and most

sensitive intelligence-gathering stations, at which I personally directed some 200-odd

specially-trained radio operators and technicians.

Subject: Enemies of the People: Health Canada’s Radiation Protection Bureau

and B.C.’s Provincial Health Officer

Enemies of the People:

1. Health Canada’s Radiation Protection Bureau

2. BC’s Provincial Health Officer

Non-thermal radiation, that which is emitted by cell phones, Smart Meters,

baby monitors, Wi-Fi routers, cell phone towers, cordless phones, etc., is

linked to or known to promote Leukemia, cancers, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s,

Autism, ADD and a host of other diseases. Yet B.C.’s Provincial Health

Officer, Dr. Perry Kendall, like his corrupt masters in Health Canada’s

Radiation Protection Bureau, refuses to tell the BC Government that

non-thermal radiation is harmful to all living things, no matter how weak

the radiation! Honest scientists know that there is no such thing as a SAFE

level of radiation! Instead of protecting us, Dr. Kendall, like Health

Canada, stubbornly hides behind Safety Code 6 – which Health Canada’s own

scientist, Dr. James McNamee, admitted in a Quebec Superior Court in

February, 2013: “protects ONLY against THERMAL radiation” (i.e., that which

heats tissue or organs, such as occurs in a microwave oven)!

Nor will Dr. Kendall or his corrupt Health Canada masters admit that there

is such a thing as electro-hypersensitivity (“EHS”), which German scientists

first reported in 1932, and which Russian and Eastern European countries

have been treating since 1935. He even ignores that Dr. Gro Harlem

Brundtland, MD, MPH, a former Prime Minister of Norway for more than 10

years before becoming the Director General of the WHO, was the first

‘luminary’ to state publicly in 2002 that she suffers from EHS! Even the WHO

issued a Bulletin in December 2005 saying that EHS is a growing world-wide

concern! Many countries recognize it, but not Canada nor the USA!

Nor will Dr. Kendall or his corrupt masters in Health Canada admit that,

because Canada is – and has been for many years – inextricably embedded with

the corrupt U.S. Military / Government / Industrial complex (about which

President Dwight Eisenhower warned the American People in 1961), British

Columbians, like all Canadians – and every person living in the USA – are

unknowingly being forced to endure one of the highest and most dangerous

levels of non-thermal radio frequency radiation in the entire world! Honest

scientists have long suspected that there is a direct correlation between

the staggering increases in many of today’s illnesses and the corresponding

explosion of wireless technology – much of which has never had to undergo

independent pre-market science-based testing to prove it was harmless to

humans and other life forms.

Dr. Perry Kendall also stubbornly ignores that European countries began

banning cell phones from schools in 2003, and that Switzerland, France,

Germany, Belgium and England began pulling Wi-Fi out of schools and

libraries in 2006. He also ignores that the 2nd largest democracy in the

world (2nd only to India), the Council of Europe (47 countries, 800-million

people) – which, until 2011, had followed the recommended radiation Exposure

Limits of ICNIRP (International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation

Protection) – issued a Press Release on May 27th urging all its member

countries to “reconsider” their dependency on ICNIRP and, instead, follow

the recommendations of the BioInitiative 2007 Report! Were Canada to follow

suit, Safety Code 6 radiation Exposure Limits would need to be reduced

10,000 times! Repeat – 10,000 times! The Council of Europe also urged all

countries of the world to observe the Precautionary Principle and urged

ICNIRP to lower its own standards – which are virtually identical to Health

Canada’s Safety Code 6, the WHO’s and IEEE/FCC’s – none of whom recognize

non-thermal radiation or EHS; all of whom sleep in the same bed.

The evidence speaks for itself and it is absolutely overwhelming! For that

reason Dr. Kendall must be removed from office – immediately! No longer

should British Columbians have to suffer because of his inexcusable legacy

of being – and stubbornly remaining – ignorant of the harmful effects that

non-thermal radio frequency radiation has on humans and all living things.

Were it not for him, cell phone towers would not be permitted on daycare

centres, schools, nursing homes, hospitals, churches, libraries, residential

buildings, etc. Or in residential developments. Nor would Wi-Fi be permitted

in these locations. And wireless Smart Meters would be a non-issue – here or

anywhere! Had he done his job, all wireless devices would have been

subjected to the Precautionary Principle, meaning that the onus would have

been put on industry to first prove their technology was safe for humans and

other life forms before it was allowed to be used and/or sold in British


With this notice, should your government fail to replace Dr. Kendall

immediately with a competent, morally upright medical doctor, one who

understands non-ionizing radiation, your government will be exposing itself

to endless, likely crippling law suits that inevitably are coming! A

suitable successor for Dr. Kendall must only be someone who understands

and/or accepts that: a) long-term, low-level, pulsed, non-thermal radio

frequency radiation is harmful to humans and all living things, and b)

powerline (60 Hz) electro-magnetic field (EMF) radiation given off by

household wiring, electrical appliances, high voltage power transmission and

distribution lines, etc. is equally harmful to humans and all living things.

I am available to answer questions or to defend anything I have said.
