O'Dwyer's - Inside News of Public Relations and Marketing Communications (New York)
"The Wi-Fi Now 2016 conference April 19-21 in Tysons Corner, Va., after giving O'Dwyer's press credentials, has withdrawn them after being told O'Dwyer's would raise health issues related to Wi-Fi, cellphones and other radiation sources.
"The press boycott poses a problem for Jessica Rosenworcel, Commissioner of the Federal Communications Commission, who is to give a "Fireside Chat" Thursday, April 21 from 11 to 11:30 a.m. at the Sheraton Tysons Corner Hotel. . . .
"Such a boycott should not be allowed in America. An O'Dwyer staffer should be able to cover the Rosenworcel talk and ask questions. . . .
"Having been shut out of "the world's first Wi-Fi conference," health advocates have created "Wired Health Now 2016" which will run in cyberspace on the same three days as Wi-Fi Now on the O'Dwyer website.
"Dozens of participants have been lined up who have already submitted texts that have links to scientific studies, YouTubes, testimony to government groups, etc. Technicians who have measured radiation levels in New York City apartments will present their findings.
"Topics will include actions by citizens groups demanding removal of Wi-Fi from classrooms and libraries; actions by government bodies in the U.K., France, Canada, Russia, Israel and other countries limiting use of Wi-Fi and warning about the dangers they present; lawsuits asking for monetary damages because of Wi-Fi; citizens groups protesting plans by Google and others to blanket the earth with Wi-Fi emitting radiation; use of wireless "smart" utility meters, and coverage of the failure of mainstream media to pay much attention to health issues and Wi-Fi, cellphones, cell towers, and other sources of radiation. . . .
Here are some of the presenters at the the Wi-Fi conference. Notice the Federal Communications Commissioner. A cozy relationship between the companies and the regulator, it appears. The FCC in the US is comparable to Industry Canada.

O'Dwyers - Inside News of Public Relations and Marketing Communications (New York)
"Maria Plant, British Columbia teacher afflicted with electromagnetic hypersensitivity, has gone on the media warpath after years of rebuffs from government and school officials, scant media attention.
"She is publicizing the validation of her illness by a Canadian Parliamentary committee in any way she can. Among those resisting her message is the BC Teachers Federation which will not publish her letter.
"After years of a "media blackout" on the subject, articles have run in the Vancouver Sun and The Province, she notes, expressing the hope for more such articles. Plant's letter in its entirety is below. . .

Jack O'Dwyer - Inside News of Public Relations and Marketing Communications (New York)
Wi-Fi pollution is "worst crime ever against humanity" but scientists, doctors and the "sinfully silent news media" are failing to warn the public, says WF health advocate Jerry Flynn (retired Canadian Armed Forces captain who spent 22 years in its "Electronic Warfare" unit)
Letter from a teacher to BCTF Magazine, March 22, 2016
" . . . The committee also agreed that children in schools should be protected from
unnecessary exposure to wireless technology, particularly when alternative technologies exist, and that the potential risks of exposure to RF fields are a serious
public health issue that needs to be brought to the attention of Canadians so that they
have the knowledge to use wireless devices responsibly, and are able to make
decisions about the use of wireless devices in a manner that protects their health and
the health of their families.
"Wouldn't it be prudent at this point in time that Canada's school boards who are entrusted with the care of young children implement the precautionary principle, heeding Dr. Magda Havas' advice from page 16 of this report:
"Safety Code 6 should follow example by protecting the most sensitive people within our population."
Limestone School District, Ontario CKWS TV Newswatch report
"The current and future use of Wi-Fi in local schools has the teachers union and parents concerned about possible health risks.
"The Limestone District School Board boardroom was packed Wednesday night as a delegation from the Ontario Secondary School Teachers' Association -- Limestone District 27 made a presentation to trustees regarding concerns surrounding Wi-Fi, or radio frequency electromagnetic fields, in schools.
" . . . the Ontario Secondary School Teachers Federation wants a moratorium on WIFI in the Limestone School Board. The Teacher Union's president says there is a growing mountain of evidence that WIFI can pose health risks. Concerns that Andrea Loken is taking to school trustees. . . .
