Re: British Columbia Hydro and Power Authority Application for Approval of Charges Related to Meter Choices Program ~ Project No.3698760

Accordingly, BC Hydro is requested to respond to the attached Commission Panel questions.

city refuses endorsement for Hammond Bay project - Nanaimo Daily News (S Anderson)
Company confirms it is cancelling $500,000 Hammond Bay project after city refuses endorsement
"Telus Communications Company has withdrawn its proposal to build a cellphone tower in Hammond Bay following a Nanaimo council vote Monday not to endorse the proposal.
"Telus had applied to Industry Canada for permission to build the 35-metre tower, which Telus says is required to improve poor wireless coverage in the area, which is notorious for dropped calls and poor cellphone reception.
"As part of its application, Telus had entered into consultations with the city and gathered feedback from residents close to the structure. The company had asked council to write a letter to the federal government supporting its application; instead, council voted 8-1 to do the opposite, citing health, environmental and visual impact concerns from residents, who have spoken out in opposition to the proposal.
"On Tuesday, Telus spokesman Shawn Hall confirmed the company was cancelling the $500,000 project: "At this time we are not proceeding with the site in Hammond Bay, unfortunately," he said.
"We came into the community and started exploring sites a few years ago in response to enormous customer demand for service, so there's a significant coverage gap there we wanted to fill. We will have to look at whether we can come back to the community in the future."
"The company was prepared to lease the 2.9-acre site, which is located at 4700 Hammond Bay Rd. Hall said "an exhaustive search" over several years had yielded no alternative sites.
"Coun. Bill McKay, the sole council member to vote against rejecting the application, voiced his frustration. He noted the area is a candidate for a new fire hall, and said poor cellular service would undermine public safety.
"I can't believe that a few citizens over in Hammond Bay are able to dictate public safety," he said.
Response to Questions re Method of BC Hydro Smart Meter Refusal - Updated December 16, 2013
"A question we are asked frequently is whether people can still participate in the civil lawsuit against BC Hydro if they are using other forms and processes of smart meter resistance. The answer is simply, yes, you can participate and use any of our forms and letters, as nothing a person can do individually with regard to such choices could affect the lawsuit one way or another. It is important to note that all civil lawsuit participants registered with CST remain completely anonymous to BC Hydro and the Court, unless specifically identified with a personal Affidavit. . . .

26+ years later and here we are, still questioning whether or not this very technology even exists! Just IMAGINE how far more advanced things are today . . .
Will it soon be too late? Cancer expected to increase by 70% in next 20 years according to WHO (Olle Johansson)
DEBATE. The World Health Organization has released a bleak future forecast. The number of new cancer cases is expected to increase from 14 million to 25 million per year over the next 20 years - an increase of 70 percent.
"Despite encouraging progress, the report shows that we can not treat ourselves out of the cancer problem," said Christopher Wild, co-author of the report. But one question lingers for me: Why does WHO themselves not consider another possible cause of this avalanche, a cause that they themselves have warned about and predicted? Let me explain.
"Today, various wireless devices flood our homes, schools and other workplaces. The issues around all of these sources of radiation are numerous. Adults are not at all certain that all this radiation is harmless, they are not at all sure that wireless technology is without risk. To this one can add numerous studies and investigations, expert reports and commentaries aries which in summary say that "there is a strong suspicion of damage." . . .
"New" MTHR report claims no health effects from cell phones, etc. (Magda Havas - EMF Facts Consultancy))
N.B. "MTHR" = Mobile Telecommunications and Health Research. The "new report" was presented in 2012 . . .
"Whenever I occasionally see a newspaper headline proclaiming new research has found that mobile phones are perfectly safe for everybody my first thought is: is it industry funded and secondly, who is evaluating the research. . . .
"Considering the MTHR reports limited reference base; its reliance on government and industry funding, both who are promoters of RF technology; its avoidance of mentioning contrary findings such as from Hardell's group; an inevitable scientific bias by inclusion of ICNIRP / IEMFP and like minded members; and its use of questionable provocation studies, this report is more spin that science. Rather than being a new "state of the art" scientific review the 2012 MTHR report is but just another industry influenced spin designed by its limitations to give a false sense of public health safety on behalf of the telco industry where none exists."
