Perhaps the most moving testimony at the hearings came from
Rodney Palmer, spokesman for the Simcoe Safe School
Committee. In Ontario's Simcoe County, kids in at least 14
schools have become ill since the schools installed Wi-Fi,
beginning in 2006. Palmer described their symptoms -
speeding heart rate, fatigue, headaches - and said that two
kids have "had cardiac arrests" and are on heart medication.
"Now every school in Simcoe County has its own
defibrillator, as though teenage heart attacks are normal."
The co-editor of The BioInitiative Report recently told
Harper's Magazine (May 2010), "If EMFs function both as a
carcinogen and a neurotoxin, then it's not just brain
tumours and brain cancers" that could result, "it's also
testicular cancer, breast cancer, leukemia, lymphoma,
Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and a range of cognitive and
The UK's Dr. Andrew Goldsworthy told the Parliamentary
Committee that microwave radiation disrupts bird migration
and "probably causes colony collapse disorder in bees."
Recent research from Europe has shown that bees exposed to
EMR from cellular towers made 21% less honeycomb and more
than one-third, taken a half-mile from the hive, couldn't
navigate back home.
The electromagnetic spectrum is actually a part of the
Commons - as much a public resource as the air, water, and
public forests. While our governments have been privatizing
the spectrum by auctioning off chunks of it to the wireless
industries, it remains our resource and should be under the
public's control. Now, there is a growing public movement
worldwide to have a say in the use of that spectrum and the
EMR pollution that is resulting in "the microwave life".
Taking Wi-Fi Out of Schools
As a first step, many parents across Canada are questioning
the need for Wi-Fi in schools, when the same Internet
capabilities are available through hard-wired modem or fibre
optics. As Rodney Palmer told the Parliamentary Committee,
children in schools with Wi-Fi are exposed to microwave
radiation for "six hours a day, five days a week, for
fourteen years," a form of "experiment without consent".
The excellent website of EMR Health Alliance of BC (www.emrabc.ca)
has posted a letter that Kristin Cassie, Principal of Roots
and Wings Montessori Place in Surrey BC, wrote to the
Parliamentary Committee. In it, Cassie explained why she
"removed all wireless technology from our school and banned
the use of cell phones within our building," adding that it
was "not a major change" to hard-wire all computers. "We
have advanced technology without any of the dangers of
In autumn 2010, a public elementary school in Meaford,
Ontario became the first public school in Canada to shut
down wireless internet. Parents at Lucerne School in New
Denver, BC, have also chosen to keep hardwired computer
systems, rather than join the Wi-Fi bandwagon. The New
Denver Parent Children's Association has issued a statement
saying, "We encourage other parents to look into the
increasingly evident side effects of wireless routers and
[wireless] computers, particularly to children whose bodies
and brains are still developing.
School District 61 in Victoria, BC has voted to form a
committee to investigate the potential health threats posed
by Wi-Fi and to report to the Board by spring 2011.
Lakehead University in Peterborough, Ont. has banned Wi-Fi
on its campus and uses fibre optic cable for Internet
Canadian schools take health issues seriously, having taken
steps for asbestos removal and making schools smoke-free and
nut-free. Trent University professor Dr. Magda Havas, an
environmental biologist and expert in microwave radiation
issues, argues that schools should also be "radiation-free"
because "as many as 260,000 students (5%) across Canada may
be adversely affected by this radiation - without even
knowing it" (at least at first). Short term effects of EMR
pollution include headaches, fatigue, dizziness, insomnia,
irritability, depression, and suppressed immune function.
