Subject: The Nova Scotia Lawsuit: Edna and Marshall Pettipas vs. Bell Aliant

Edna Pettipas of Afton, Nova Scotia sends this update (below) on the Pettipas lawsuit, together with an urgent request for additional pledges of donations.
In 2011, my husband and I launched a lawsuit against telecom giant Bell Aliant for property damage and personal injuries caused by radiation from a cell phone tower. The trial, originally scheduled for April 20, 2015, was postponed after legal maneuvering by Bell Aliant. In December, we retained a new lawyer in Halifax, on contingency, at a very reputable law firm. New court dates have not yet been assigned, as Bell Aliant is seeking to call additional witnesses, and the court dates cannot be set until the number of experts is known. “Contingency” means our lawyer will not bill us for legal fees, but we are still responsible for actual expenses, primarily the costs of flying in our experts from several countries to testify at trial.
My husband and I would like to thank all those who have generously donated to this cause. The money raised thus far has gone to securing experts, paying for their reports, etc. This is classic David and Goliath and we need additional help. To ensure that our case goes to trial we must secure sufficient pledges of funds before June 30, 2016, to pay the costs of bringing our experts to Nova Scotia to testify. At this time, rather than ask for more donations now, we are asking for pledges. We will call in our pledges only if we receive enough promised donations to see us through the trial. At that time, donations will be funneled through the Cellular Phone Task Force, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, for U.S. citizens who need tax deductions. Whether you can pledge $5 or $5,000, your generosity will be greatly appreciated. Our success could have precedent-setting implications that will help every citizen of Canada, and will have implications for other countries as well. The greater public interest will be served as a result of the case heard round the world.
We are up against a telecom company with limitless resources. Some of our experts have offered to reduce their fees, but still the costs are large. Pledges can be sent via email:, or postal mail to: Edna Pettipas, 484 Old Antigonish Road, Antigonish, NS B0H 1A0, Canada.

No one should save for a lifetime to finally build their dream home, move in on Christmas Eve, and lose their health, their home, and their life savings as a result. We were told only that if we built our house at least 300 feet from the base of the tower, there would be no danger from falling ice. We are fighting a fight for all of us so that we and our children can live in a world where the Goliaths are not allowed to lie about safety and rob us of our health and our dreams.

Mysterious chemtrail fibers dropped by C-130 over Arizona covered up by mainstream media

Mysterious chemtrail fibers dropped by C-130 over Arizona covered up by mainstream media

(NaturalNews) In early November, Chino Valley, Arizona, residents Marie Snow and Cori Gunnels made a discovery which they said frightened them. According to published reports — and there were few — they witnessed what appeared to them to be 50- to 60-foot long “raindrops,” which were “solid” in nature, falling in clusters from the sky after seeing a C-130 military transport plane and two escort aircraft fly overhead.

As reported by the news website IntelliHub, the pair were of the mind to gather some samples of the fibrous material, which was found in stringy blotches clinging to fences, plants and other structures throughout the bucolic landscape of the region, to have them examined by experts, with the hope of figuring out what it was that was dropped from the sky. Snow, the website reported, even decided not to touch the strands with her bare hands, and collected them on white pieces of paper.

Not long after, Snow decided to contact her local news station, KPHO, a CBS affiliate, and asked them to investigate her discovery. A few days later, the station sent a reporter, Greg Argos, to look into Snow’s finding and get her story, including the part where the fibrous material appeared to be distributed overhead from a military transport aircraft.

“However, what happened after CBS 5 interviewed Snow may shock you,” IntelliHub reported.

Biodegradable gauze”

The roughly three-minute video piece produced by KPHO reported Snow’s details and included some quotes from her regarding her discovery. The report noted that the fibers gathered by Snow, which were “thicker than a spider web” and “very strong,” were taken by the station to Grand Canyon University’s Forensic Science Lab for testing.

According to the report, Melissa Beddow, director of the university’s forensic science program, tested the substance samples under “40 times magnification.” Though at first the samples stumped her, she eventually concluded that they were likely “biodegradable gauze” from “nearby cattle farms.” She said they were comprised of “a mixture of wheat, gluten, flour and bacitracin, an antibiotic.”

As further reported by IntelliHub, that conclusion did not satisfy the curious:

However, after the local news piece aired, Snow and others were skeptical of Argos’ findings. Snow was soon after urged by Al DiCicco, who appears in the documentary film “Shade the Motion Picture”, a film about covert and sinister bioweapons testing programs, to contact Intellihub News and get independent testing of the samples done by a reputable lab. And that’s just what Marie Snow did.

On Nov. 22, Snow contacted IntelliHub’s Shepard Ambellas for another attempt at finding out what to do next, since the Chino Valley resident remained unconvinced of the local media’s findings. Ambellas said he advised the same thing DiCicco did: Get some independent testing done.

Snow and Gunnels sent several of the fibrous samples to a credible laboratory located in Redding, Calif.

Chemtrail materials confirmed

The work order for the samples numbered “14K0279” was dated Dec. 4, 2014, the order numbered “14K0683” was dated Dec. 2, 2014. They both came with this guarantee: “All analysis were performed under strict adherence to our established Quality Assurance Plan.” Both said that “solid” “fibers” were submitted by “Marie Snow” for “general testing.”

“Astonishingly, both tests concluded that both samples indeed tested positive for three metal analytes, ‘Aluminum,’ ‘barium’ and ‘strontium,’ three substances commonly known by dedicated researchers to be found in persistent contrails, i.e. chemtrails and or geoengineering, terraforming operations as pointed out by investigative researcher, activist, Rosalind Peterson, Agriculture Defense Coalition, in Shade the Motion Picture,” IntelliHub reported.

But the rest of the mainstream media has thus far ignored the story — and, for that matter, most all other “chemtrail” stories, unless they are attempting to discredit the notion or the sources bringing the issue to the public’s attention.

Microwaves, Cell Phone, Smart Meters Emit Waves That Cause Health Problems

A Massachusetts court will hear the case in August 2016. No child in school or at home should be expected to be—or actually be—exposed to EMFs/RFs because there are short- and long-range serious health consequences involved. Furthermore, EHS sensitivity has been documented scientifically with standard medical tests!

Microwaves, Cell Phone, Smart Meters Emit Waves That Cause Health Problems

By Catherine J Frompovich

The more we learn about microwave technology, the more questionable it should become as to why we even should be so enamored with it. The latest thing we have to thank cell phone microwaves for is their ability to accelerate the release of mercury in dental amalgam (silver) fillings! Don’t believe that? Well, here’s  a published paper that says so.

In the Abstract of that paper, this is stated:

It appears that MRI and microwave radiation emitted from mobile phones significantly release mercury from dental amalgam restoration. Further research is needed to clarify whether other common sources of electromagnetic field exposure may cause alterations in dental amalgam and accelerate the release of mercury.

What other common sources of electromagnetic field exposures can they be referring to?
There are Smart Meters for electric, natural gas and water customers. And then there’s
Wi-Fi commonly found in restaurants, public places and classrooms in the USA—although many countries now are taking Wi-Fi out of schools, exercising the “Precautionary Principle.”

Can you imagine your cell phone is affecting your teeth and brain by releasing mercury from the fillings in your teeth! Mercury is a neurotoxin! Here’s an excellent overview about that, which ought to make every cell phone user think twice, I’d say.

However, there is much more health damage, known medically as “Non-thermal” adverse effects, from microwave technologies than consumers realize or know.

Kids, in particular, are affected more adversely than adults not only from their cell phones but the Wi-Fi routers they are exposed to while sitting in their classrooms. One young man in Massachusetts can’t go to school because of the problems he suffers from classroom Wi-Fi, so his parents have initiated a lawsuit to get relief.

Pennsylvania Smart Meter Awareness * PASMA recently issued a Press Release, “Microwave Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity Lawsuit Going to Trial,” which I’d like to share with my readers.

Why? Because your kids may be complaining of headaches, nausea and dizziness while in school—or even at home if you’ve recently had an AMI Smart Meter retrofitted on to your house—and now you can do something about getting help and relief.

Here’s that PASMA Press Release.


Why are parents of a twelve-year-old junior boarding school student filing a lawsuit against the Fay School in Smithboro, Massachusetts, regarding their son’s inability to cope with adverse health effects from Wi-Fi microwaves that cause dizziness, headaches and other adverse health effects in class due to the school’s Wi-Fi?

Any technology that uses microwaves to receive and transmit data or information, such as Smart Meters, cell phones and towers, and Wi-Fi, emit electromagnetic frequencies (EMFs), also known as non-ionizing radiation (NIR) or radiofrequencies (RFs).

The lawsuit cites medical experts who confirm the student’s EHS symptoms, which the medical community and the microwave industry won’t recognize as valid health problems, despite the World Health Organization’s declaring electromagnetic hypersensitivity a real health concern.

Available data suggest that RF radiation should be considered “a carcinogenic risk,” a position taken in an internal 1990 US EPA document…when there was much less evidence of the potential harmfulness of EMF radiation. Env. Health Perspectives 105(s) Dec 1997

There are more than 60 major studies declaring the dangers of EMF.
Dept. Natural Resources Engineering NZ 1997

If miscarriage risk, sleep disruption, children’s performance impairment, and chronic fatigue is to be reduced, the limit should be <0.01μW/cm2 Dept. Natural Resources Engineering NZ 1997

18 studies of childhood cancer conducted. Residential exposures to EMF have been—There is a preponderance of positive results, more than one would expect by chance. Cancer Causes Control 5:299-309, 1994

When all studies are pooled, the average risk for leukemia, lymphoma and nervous system tumors are statistically significant. Cancer Causes Control 5:299-309, 1994

How does one reduce exposure to EMFs/RFs? There are two main ways: 1) Changing one’s personal habits regarding use plus proximity; and 2) the microwave industry must be made to situate their transmitters [and even routers] at greater distances from people.

Regarding Smart Meters for electric, natural gas and water customers, they should be abolished by law due to the inordinate amount of “dirty electricity” Smart Meters send onto the electrical wiring of a house or apartment where people are exposed to hundreds, if not thousands, of Hz rather than the normal 50 to 60 Hz that should come into residences.

Since the Fay School was not able to work out an agreement, the parents decided on further legal action. As a result of a dosimeter’s reading of classroom Wi-Fi emissions, it was confirmed that the boy’s adverse health conditions worsened when the Wi-Fi signals were strongest and lessened when Wi-Fi signals weakened.

A Massachusetts court will hear the case in August 2016. No child in school or at home should be expected to be—or actually be—exposed to EMFs/RFs because there are short- and long-range serious health consequences involved. Furthermore, EHS sensitivity has been documented scientifically with standard medical tests!

Professor Dominique Belpomme, MD, (Paris Descartes University) says, “EHS is not a psychiatric disease.” Furthermore, there’s a battery of medical tests to diagnose hypersensitivity to electromagnetic waves. Belpomme’s study results are being published in the scientific journal Reviews on Environmental Health. The study results show abnormalities in blood and urine testing, plus Doppler ultrasound to the brain show abnormal blood flow in the brain. Additionally, Doctor/Professor Belpomme’s work indicates an inflammatory process within the brain called neuroinflammation induced by electromagnetic fields such as microwaves EMFs/RFs. Dr. Belpomme states that no psychiatric or psychosomatic illnesses are involved in EHS, since high levels of nitrotyrosine (28% of cases) and histamine (40% of cases) present biochemical evidence.

PASMA respectfully suggests and requests that the PA PUC and the PA legislature immediately come up to speed on the detrimental health effects of microwave pollution known as “Non-thermal” adverse health effects which all Pennsylvanians, who have Smart Meters in their homes, are subjected to, along with universal Wi-Fi exposure at all levels of education in the Commonwealth.

Based upon the above medical science, PASMA expects those Massachusetts parents ought to prevail at law and in court, especially if the microwave/Wi-Fi lobbyists are kept at bay and away from seeding 50 to 60 year-old inaccurate information, plus calling in chips from the “old boy network.”

Probe launched into Consumers Energy billing practices

Smart Meter software causing inaccurate over usage…Sandaura


Probe launched into Consumers Energy billing practices

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – After years of complaints from customers surrounding the estimation of power bills, Consumers Energy will now be required to cooperate with their regulatory entity on a probe looking into the practice.

Estimation occurs when Consumers cannot, for a number of reasons, get to a customer’s meter box to take a reading. The company then uses a computer software program to estimate a bill for that month based on that customer’s past usage and recent weather conditions. This, as has been the topic of thousands of complaints over nearly a decade, can lead to over- and under-estimations causing customers to play catch up on subsequent bills.

But now, a probe launched by the Michigan Public Service Commission will investigate the Consumers process for estimating, while requiring the utility company to do some of the grunt work themselves.

“Over the years, really since 2008, the commission has received a number of complaints,” said Judy Palnau with MPSC, “and during those years the commission staff has met with the utility in hopes of improving the situation but the problems persisted.”

Something MPSC will look for is a correlation between the commencement of the complaints and the rollout of a Consumers software program that uses an algorithm to calculate estimated bills. Interestingly enough, that software was implemented in 2008, around the same time the complaints began coming to MPSC en masse.

“This new software system was put in place in 2008, and the mathematical formula used to calculate the estimated bill may be part of the problem here,” said Palnau. “And this is one of the areas we’ve asked for information on. The formula they’re using may not be the best formula to be using. It does seem to coincide with this software.”

Also included in the eight-point probe: staffing issues that could have led to estimations, Consumers’ communication with customers regarding the estimates, newly installed smart meters, and possible solutions to the persisting issue.

“It’s a pretty detailed request,” said Roger Morgenstern, spokesperson for Consumers Energy, “but we’ve been meeting with the commission on this matter and we’re working on getting the number of these estimated bills reduced. At the same time we will give the commission everything that they’re looking for and we’re looking forward to their review and recommendations.”

Consumers will be required to turn in their self-review by Feb. 18. MPSC will then take a month to review that report and craft recommendations and solutions. Their review will be due back to Consumers by May 18.

“It is a problem that is not just isolated to one area – it seems to be footprint wide,” said Palnau. “So we’ll be interested in looking at that report. Everybody wants an accurate bill because you don’t want this to go one for months and then have to catch up and have to deal with that. So it’s best to have an accurate bill – I think everybody would agree with that.”
