Federal Petition - C4ST

Create a Mechanism for Canadians to Report Adverse Reactions to Wireless Radiation

"The Standing Committee of Health (2010) report . . . obtained recommended that:

"Health Canada ensure that it has a process in place to receive and respond to reports of adverse reactions to electromagnetic radiation emitting devices.

"In this document obtained by C4ST under the Access to Information Act, the memo from Health Canada to the Minister of Health states: "HC does not support the recommendation to establish an adverse reaction reporting process specifically for RF exposures."

"Help us encourage Health Minister Ambrose to follow the Parliamentary Committee recommendations by gathering signatures on the below petition to be presented in the House of Commons.

Electrosmog Awareness - 2-sided Handout

Links, FAQ, updates, ElectroSENSITIVITY reported symptoms

This is a generic double-sided card that can be distributed as needed.

They can be handed out as is, but there is a small white space to write shareable personal contact information (e-mail or phone number) if desired/useful.

"From using cell phones and computers to watching movies online, wireless technology has made life easier. But now, some say there is a serious downside. As CBS2's Maurice Dubois explained, there are those who claim that exposure to Wi-Fi is making people sick, and some people don't even know it. . . .

Practice Prevention EMFs - Sage/Evans of the CHE EMF Working Group

Important 6 page FLYER newsletter gives very good general information about

  • Where do EMFs come from? Should I be concerned?
  • Sources of extremely low frequency [ELF-EMF] in the home, workplace and school environments
  • Sources of RF (radiofrequency, wireless) EMF in the home, workplace and school environments
  • Making wise choices
  • What if I am pregnant or have small children?
  • What about cell phone use and driving?

There's an important new book out that will likely be very useful for this and other related issues: your right to know; how to use the law to access government information; how to access what government hides; how to hold institutions accountable; how to request pertinent info from government using both informal and formal requests. This information is rightfully free because it is a public interest issue.   


"In their recently published book "Your Right to Know", journalists Jim Bronskill and David McKie have done yeomans' work explaining how Canadians can use freedom of information requests to get government secrets. But, at the federal level, it's work they shouldn't have needed to do -- pointing to another problem with Canada's broken access to information laws.  

"Introduced in 1980 by Pierre Trudeau's Liberals, the Access to Information Act gave Canadians a limited right to request government records. The bureaucracy's filing cabinets could now metaphorically be opened by anyone -- unless the records in them included 75 different kinds of information that would still be considered secret.  

"But, even with those limits, the Trudeau administration seemed to have little interest in telling voters about their newfound rights or how to exercise them.  

"Just before the act came into force, the Globe and Mail told readers the government would be "placing posters in post offices and public libraries" to advertise the new program. But "it plans nothing else in the way of public information," a deficiency noted by information commissioner Inger Hansen in her first annual report. . . .

EHS SURVEY research participation opportunity

Oxidative Stress and Energetics Study, headed by Dr. B. Golomb, University of California School of Medicine in San Diego

Oxidative Stress and Energetics Study University of California, San Diego Consent to Act as a Research Subject

This survey is seeking to gain, among other things, insights about the impacts of EHS on those who are affected by it.

To participate, and preview the questions asked, first click the link in the introduction to open the "Online Consent Form" (Survey Consent). The applicable sections are differentiated in a darker font.

"This survey was approved under a broader project. We have grayed out the (many!) portions of the consent that don't pertain to this project. Please review it and indicate your agreement and willingness to participate below. You will only be consenting for the items that have already been marked with an "X".

One step closer - Europe

One step closer towards gaining recognition for the rights of electromagnetic hypersensitivity throughout Europe

' . . . Awareness is growing and the UK Radiation Research Trust congratulate the 110 EESC members who took the first step towards their duty of care voting for the original opinion which supported the human rights of EHS people as presented to the EESC by Dr Isaac Jamieson in the call for support for the right to life, prohibition of torture and prohibition of discrimination as required to be part of all policy making. The Radiation Research Trust call on all members to listen to independent scientists and medical doctors with expertise in this area of concern and remind policy makers of their duty of care to protect those fundamental principles and basic human values.

Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity and Human Rights

Commentary to the European Economic and Social Committee on the European Convention on Human Rights

Attached is a commentary by Dr. Isaac Jamieson on Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity and Human Rights. As more of us are forced to live with higher and higher levels of exposure, the number of people who are sensitive is increasing dramatically. Victims suffer in many ways, including discrimination. It is vital that human rights be respected and measures taken to provide a safer environment.

The following is brief commentary on Human Rights, as related to electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS) and other conditions that may be affected as a result of exposure to manmade electromagnetic fields (EMFs).  In this present work, relevant sections of the convention are indicated in the text below and their implications discussed.      

It is intended that this commentary will be of benefit to policy makers, industry and members of the general public.

Of special note is the chart on page 2 showing exposure limits in various countries. Canada and the US have the same limits as ICNIRP recommends. Please see the statement at the bottom of the page - there are techniques and wireless devices that can cut levels significantly. Why aren't they being used in North America?

This is an excerpt from a short film I'm making about people who suffer from controversial condition Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity (EHS).  

A version of this video and my photographs were shown on the Guardian website and the story and my photos were published in the Weekend Magazine on the 30th March 2013.
