Government Response Tabled

Petition to the Government of Canada

Whereas:
  • The smart meter is placed in the same category by the World Health Organization as cellular telephones and Wi-Fi, which are classed in Group 2B, the possibly carcinogenic to humans category. Lead and DDT are also in that category; and
  • Health Canada stated that provinces and school boards can and have the authority to establish their own regulations governing exposure to radiofrequencies.
We, the undersigned, citizens of Canada, call upon the Minister of Health to:
1. Send precautionary notice to all power utilities in Canada regarding their reliance on Safety Code 6; and
2. Establish their own safety protocols and encourage power utilities to consider less harmful distribution methods in some regions of Canada, which may include, but are not limited to, the use of analog meters.
