SO JUST HOW
WIFI TO SCHOOL KIDS
An open letter to Darryl Plecas

Parents, teachers and students are frustrated because we have contacted the Provincial Health Officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry, Ministry of Health, Adrian Dix, Deputy Minister of Health, Stephen Brown, Ministry of Education, Rob Fleming, Premier, John Horgan, requesting an official response to the findings of the US National Toxicology Program Expert Panel who concluded that there is “Clear Evidence of Carcinogenic Activity” and the association of cancer in the heart and brain and cell phone radiation, only to be ignored.
Supporting the US NTP study, is the Ramazzini Institute who also completed the world's largest animal study on cell tower radiation and has confirmed the findings of the National Toxicology Program link to Cancer.
It is a scientific fact that microwave radiation exposure causes many health effects, including Cancers, Anxiety, Depression, Autism, Alzheimer’s, Hormone problems, DNA damage, Infertility, etc. As documented in over 27,000 peer reviewed studies by scientists and medical experts.
This information warrants the solicitation of a current letter re Wi-Fi safety from Dr. Bonnie Henry to ensure the latest peer reviewed studies and recommendations are being applied to make a sound decision regarding our children’s health and well being. Currently it is mandatory that our children will be exposed to Microwave Radiation from wireless technology with no way to shield themselves from this full body radiation, much like the rats used in these studies.
The School Boards have willfully dismissed all credible health information presented to them from qualified experts, nationally and internationally, which emphasizes children's heightened vulnerabilities and the need for "precautionary" measures to reduce exposure and risk from the harmful effects now.
Canada agreed the Precautionary Principle would be implemented when an activity raises threats of harm to human health or the environment, even if some cause and effect relationships are not fully established scientifically. The Precautionary Principle shifts the burden of proof, insisting that those responsible for an activity must vouch for its harmlessness and be held responsible if damage occurs.
The most current letter on file is dated July 2011, from our School Health Officer, Dr. Stanwick, who was unable to provide us with any peer-reviewed studies stating the safety of microwave radiation exposure. Dr. Stanwick instead has shifted “the responsibility for professional oversight” to the Provincial Health Officer. Dr. Stanwick, appears to have no educational background on the biological health effects of RF radiation exposure, yet has endorsed the installation of a known 2b carcinogen listed next to lead, DDT, methyl mercury, chloroform, and car exhaust as an acceptable risk in our schools. It's 2019 and we want to know is Cancer an acceptable risk too?
Health is a Provincial Jurisdiction. The BC Government has failed to do their due diligence and take immediate action to mitigate the risk by informing the School Boards throughout the province of the established health risks associated with long term exposure to microwave radiation by recommending the use of hard wired connections to access the Internet in our schools. For as little as a one time cost of $500 US dollars, every classroom would be provided with 40 Ethernet ports plus adapters for their wireless devices, costing about $20 per child, a small price to pay compared to brain surgery, chemotherapy, radiation treatments etc.
By refusing to implement the Precautionary Principal and ignoring the growing body of “clear evidence” of cancer, the mandatory exposure in our schools may ultimately be responsible for the greatest health scandal of our time.
