06/14 Download and print the Petition document below to help gather signatures requesting the local Public and Catholic school boards...
a. WRITE TO HEALTH CANADA TO INFORM THEM of the serious concerns and objections to Safety Code 6 and the use of Wi-Fi in our schools, received from informed parents who have been appealing to this School Board consistently for the past 4 years.
b. ASK HEALTH CANADA to clearly explain the scientific, legal and moral rationale for why it is safe and appropriate to allow students, without express parental consent, and teachers, to be saturated continually with a Class 2B Possible Carcinogen, and particularly in light of new evidence suggesting it may be considered a Class 2A Probable Carcinogen.
c. TAKE INTERIM PRECAUTIONARY MEASURES NOW by ensuring that current hardwired connections remain intact; AND by proactively installing on/off switches on wireless access points such that Wi-Fi is used only when required, thus minimizing students’ and teachers’ cumulative exposure to microwave radiation. These measures would apply until such time as Health Canada justifies the current SC6 standard with convincing and independently verified evidence (i.e. without the involvement of conflicted/vested interests), and/or issues a final decision regarding Safety Code 6 which is more protective of public health. This is also consistent with the recommendation of the Canadian Teachers’ Federation.
