Subject: the REPORTING about blue jays player not vaxxed,  2202-08-04 AM

 

TO:  CBC Radio Victoria

 

The ASSUMPTIONS behind the reporting on the Blue Jays player who can’t play at the Jays’ home games are a discredit to Canadian media coverage.  The expressed incredulity and laughter, a failure to engage in journalistic scrutiny by the reporters, are further discredit.

Vaccine mandates are about human rights.  What do you think they’re about?

I don’t know the Blue Jays’ story, so I put “blue jays player not vaxxed” into an internet search.   You may want to do the same.

A random excerpt from what I found:

(July 2022)  Canadian vaccine mandates have kept 36 players from traveling to Toronto for games against the host Blue Jays, and 34 of them – a whopping 94% – hail from the United States  . . .

So to me, it’s not about the player from the U.S. that the Blue Jays signed up.  36 players have been prevented from playing in Canada, plus this recent one.

What’s it about?

  • how is it that players who freely walk out on baseball diamonds in the US, are barred from Canadian baseball diamonds?
  • But more importantly,  WHY are these players not vaxxed?

There’s plenty of available information.  But for me,

I’m big on human rights (I’m from the 1960-70’s:  Martin Luther King, Rosa Parks, Canadian Neil Young’s song “Four Dead in Ohio” (Viet Nam War protests, students shot down by the U.S. National Guard, Daniel Ellsberg’s Pentagon Papers, then comes The Iraq War Syndrome – –  accurately the anthrax vaccine forcibly injected into more than a million American military and related forces, with disastrous and heart-breaking results . . .  on and on we go.)

Can you not see a legacy?

  • American sports, lots of “black” heroes
  • Their family backgrounds include civil rights activists who worked in alignment with Martin Luther King Jr (just ONE prominent example).  Fast forward
  • Today, Black lives matter forms bonds of solidarity, and morphs into “All Lives Matter”.

 

  • BUT BEFORE ALL THAT:   my Dad was a young man during World War 2.  He read a lot and I read some of his books.  The NUREMBERG TRIALS.  Human RightsInternational humanitarian law  . . .  “ never again”.

 

Forced medical treatments are a clear and dangerous violation of human rights with a history that precedes World War 2 (in the U.S., experiments on black and poor kids in orphanages.  You don’t want to know about it.  Nazis were good at sadistic behavior;  so were Americans.  We don’t tell stories on ourselves (I’m Canadian).  

It is well-known that Big Pharma is corrupt and corrupting.  So what are we doing in bed with them?  Providing immunity from prosecution and public funding to create billionaires?

As I type, I am offended.  I feel like swearing.  Through failed journalism you are supporting the trampling of Human Rights.  Won through hard and long fights, continuous since before Emancipation in the USA (since before 1863).  . .

The Federal Court of Canada will hear the constitutional challenges to forced injections and other mandates (not supported by sound science) on October 31st.  I wonder if the CBC will cover the case fairly?

Unanimous ruling by Alberta’s Court of Appeal is a total legal, moral and constitutional victory for Artur Pawlowski and his brother Dawid.

In short, Alberta’s top judges ruled that:

  • the court order that was used to arrest and jail Pawlowski was flawed and therefore illegal;
  • all of the punishments that flowed from that — such as being fined and jailed — were without basis. Pawlowski’s fines will be returned to him;

The additional bizarre, authoritarian penalties — banning him from going on speaking tours; requiring him to read a statement denouncing himself any time he criticized the government — were revoked, and deemed unconstitutional.

IMPORTANT PLAYER,  YOUNG LAWYER SARAH MILLER  

Sarah got her law degree (Calgary) in 2018;  only 4 years ago.

I’ve listened to a couple interviews of her, in relation to her representation of Artur Pawlowski.  I am excited by these young people who are shining warriors.   Sarah is a credit to the legal profession.

A bit about Sarah:   https://jssbarristers.ca/litigators/sarah-miller/#:~:text=Sarah%20is%20a%20fourth%20generation,as%20an%20Associate%20in%202019. 

= = = =  = = = = =  = = =

The Alberta Supreme Court decision, July 22, is important for all Canadians.

Sarah has represented Pawlowski for a  few years, starting before Covid, and culminating with this July 22nd unanimous decision by the Alberta Court of Appeal.   (It’s not the end-of-the-line for Pawlowski, but it is a heavy-weight win.)

At the least, expect your eyebrows to rise at the descriptions of events.   Other people, I’m one!  are left speechless.  Cannot believe that a Judge in this country would be so ignorant of the basic tenets of law, that they would envision getting away with such rulings (the rulings that were under appeal.   They have come to believe that no one can afford to appeal, maybe?

Bless Sarah Miller AND bless Artur Pawlowksi.

RECOMMEND:   if you’re short of time,  

  1. Interview of Sarah, July 22.  Following the announcement of the win in the Alberta Court of Appeal:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rb7stIf_KnY     43 minutes.

(The interviewer is Ezra Levant – – never thought I’d see the day when I’d be recommending something by Ezra!)   The interview brings out events that I have not seen reported in earlier coverage.

      1. A.     The Oct 14, 2021 interview of Sarah Miller following an earlier court date.  14 minutes,   She clearly explains what is, and is not “contempt of court”.    Link below.

==============================

  1. INTRODUCTION

“Talk” says there are too many cancers near some electrical fields.

Don’t know.  And Health Canada cut the funding to the Canadian Childhood Cancer Surveillance and Control Programme, so how will we ever know?

Dr. Magda Havas from Trent University gave a presentation at the Prevent Cancer NOW Conference. …  Ooooh yes – there is a relationship between cancers and EMF’s, as they are called (Electro Magnetic Fields).

============================

  1. GAUSSMETER FOR MEASURING

Anita (Tsawwassen, B.C.) writes:  “You can measure the magnetic field.  The gadget is called a gaussmeter (also known as a magnetometer) and it measures milligauss.  2 – 4 mG is generally considered by world experts to be a safe level.”

Madga had some gaussmeters at the Prevent Cancer NOW organization’s conference.  You can take readings from around a room, for example, at the electrical plug-ins.

A quick google search shows lots of information and suppliers of gaussmeters.

============================

  1. EMF “SENSITIVITY” : CHEMICAL SENSITIVITY

A young woman at the presentation is very sensitive to EMFs.  There is a growing number of people who suffer from health symptoms that are being traced back to EMFs.  EMF sensitivity has parallels with chemical sensitivity.

People with chemical sensitivities are careful in the siting of their homes and what they bring into their homes. They must limit themselves to as little exposure as possible or suffer debilitating health consequences.  The same is true for people with EMF sensitivity.

==============================

  1. EMF DISEASE : CHEMICAL DISEASE

Chemicals are associated with cancers.  EMFs are associated with cancers.

It is now well-established that EMFs are associated with Alzheimer’s disease.  Chemicals are clearly associated with reductions in cognitive functioning in children (interference in cognitive development).

EMFs and chemicals are invisible.  There are other disease or bad health connections for both.

=================================

  1. EMFs, WHAT’S HAPPENING IN OTHER COUNTRIES?

Thanks to the Mothers in Tsawwassen.  Their battle brings us a fast lesson in EMFs.

I am doubly indebted:  knowledge of the Tsawwassen situation (July email) caused my nephew and his wife with their infant twins to back out of a house deal in Red Deer.  They got a gaussmeter;  the reading caused by a nearby transmission line was above safe levels. What a relief they got the information in time. I hope other people, and especially the Mothers in Tsawwassen,  will benefit in a some way from this assembled information.

The knowledge level and actions in Canada about exposure to EMFs is behind other countries.

–  July 2007  Australian authorities will advise the public on how to reduce their exposure to electromagnetic fields

–  This month a UK government inquiry recommended a moratorium on building new homes and schools within 60 metres of existing high-voltage overhead powerlines.

–  2008  High Frequency Voltage Transients Associated With Increased Cancer Incidence in Teachers in a California School (more detail in #10 below.

–  Nov 2008  Living close to a powerline can double your chance of dying from Alzheimer’s Disease A large new study (4.7 million persons) from Switzerland shows a significant dose-related increase in deaths from Alzheimer’s Disease … more information in #17.

A Google news search on “EMFs” turns up:

–  Cancer fear spurs kindy (kindergarten) to fight ‘killer rays’

New Zealand Herald, New Zealand – 29 Oct 2008 Links with EMF levels and child cancers were what was most alarming, Miss Drinnan said. “There was a big case in Massey a few years ago linking EMF with …

–  Saw Creek is fixing for a fight

Pocono Record, Pennsylvania – 12 Nov 2008 Residents are worried that increased electromagnetic fields, or EMFs, could cause cancer clusters, childhood leukemia and other illnesses. …

–  Greens: No Cell Towers Near Schools/preschools Voxy, New Zealand – 3 Nov 2008 “As more and more evidence emerges about the potential adverse health effects of low level exposure to EMF, the Government must take a precautionary …

 

Anita writes:

“We understand that the World Health Organization (WHO) will be issuing international guidelines on the basis that there is a link between the emissions and infant leukemia.  As you are no doubt well aware, other research has found links between other forms of cancers and proximity of residences to high voltage transmission lines.

======================

  1. B.C. TRANSMISSION CORPORATION’S ROLE

(Anita, continuing):   “BC Transmission Corporation has been publishing

misleading information to all of us by stating that exposure of up to 833 mG is the WHO guideline without noting that WHO has not issued guidelines, and that the 833 is a figure quoted for short term occupational exposure.  This truly verges on psychopathic behavior – lying and doing whatever is necessary to achieve the corporation’s goals.  Incidentally, there was an excellent documentary film released several years ago, entitled “THE CORPORATION”.  In this film, the actions of some huge corporations meet the conditions of the checklist developed for psychopathic behavior by Dr. Robert Hare.”

=====================================

 

  1. EASY FOR US ALL TO HELP THE MOTHERS IN TSAWWASSEN

 

Women in the lower mainland of B.C. are fighting a high-voltage line that runs right through their community.  One of the towers has been erected on the school parking lot.  The wires are not yet hung.  The Mothers’ chance of success will be enhanced if some of us will pitch in.  You know people in B.C.  Send information to them.  Phone, write or email Gordon Campbell, the Premier of B.C. (tel. 250-387-1715;  email premier@gov.bc.ca )

Also,  the School Superintendent identifies other parties we should be talking to:

”  The Delta School District relies on professional advice from experts in the field. Advice on public health matters comes from the World Health Organization, Health Canada, the Fraser Health Authority, and the BC Centre for Disease Control.

In a letter dated July 30, 2008, the Chief Medical Health Officer of the Fraser Health Authority stated that “… with respect to the issue of power lines and health, it is safe for students and staff to attend South Delta Secondary School.”  A copy of the full text of the letter from the Chief Medical Health Officer and other information is available on the District’s web-site at www.deltasd.bc.ca. ”

 

Hopefully some of us will look up contact info and send an email with information on EMFs to:

–  Chief Medical Health Officers (they exist at the regional, provincial and national level.  They meet with each other.

–  Fraser Health Authority

–  BC Centre for Disease Control

–  Health Canada (probably a waste of time.  Any of the thousands of people who have worked on pesticide bylaws know that Health Canada is dedicated to the health of industry profits.  The Canadian public is not its clientele.)

–  World Health Organization (WHO).  As with Health Canada and many of the American regulatory agencies, the pharm-chem=biotech transnationals have gotten their people well placed inside Government.  Or, they have the lobbying dollars to buy favours.  You simply cannot rely on them to look after the public interest in removal of cause of disease.

The woman I talked with in Premier Campbell’s office was sympathetic to the information about Furdale (#8 and #24 below), the teachers in California (#10), etc.  She was also honest: she said that the high power transmission line will go ahead in spite of the information.

The Government doesn’t care how many children and adults will have some form of cancer or other disease from the high voltage line – UNLESS.  The line will go through – UNLESS.  Unless enough people know AND make it known to Government.

Remember:  B.C. was going ahead with an Independent (Private) Power Producer

(IPP) on the Pitt River (#22 below).  A thousand people turned up at a public meeting.  The Premier decided maybe it wasn’t such a good idea after all.

When I think of your situation (Tsawwasswen) with the power tower in place I am reminded of the nuclear power plant in Austria.  The whole plant was built.  The citizens forced a referendum and voted against it.  It has never been turned on.  I think it’s a museum now.

High voltage transmission lines are an issue in the Peace River area (nuclear energy for the tar sands).  They are an issue wherever in Canada there is a plan for the export of electricity to the U.S.  The information in this email should be known to the people whose lives will be affected by the lines.

To put children and their families through two years of grueling cancer treatment, and for the child to die in spite of the treatment is a tragedy, especially when the cause is known with a high degree of certainty.

I am thankful to the Mothers from Tsawwassen;  we learn through their work.

====================================

  1. VISUALS HELP: LIST AND MARK THE FURDALE CANCERS ON A MAP

(I deleted the attachment, a map of Furdale with cancers marked.  They make a line parallel to the transmission line.  PLEASE ask me for the map if it would be useful.  It makes too many kilobytes to include in this email.)

Furdale (pop’n approx 200 people) is a compelling example that other communities can use (especially right now – the women in the lower mainland of B.C.).

We went to Furdale on Tuesday.

The attached map shows SOME of the cancers, numbered:

1 Danny survived Hodgkins

2 Tanya deceased rhabdomyosarcoma

3 Amanda survived Hodgkins

4 M.S. deceased stomach cancer

5 M.J. deceased cancer

6 M.L. deceased brain tumour

These 6 cancers are along one street (Strathcona Ave).  Roughly a city block long (not a short block but a longish one).

The first 3 were adolescent children.

The last 3 were adults.

These are SOME of the cancers that ONE PERSON, who left the community more than 7 years ago, knows of.

The “X” on the west side of the South Saskatchewan River is the Queen Elizabeth power-generating station.

6 high-voltage transmission lines run (north-south) parallel to Strathcona Ave.  (See the map)

The north-south voltage alongside Furdale is shown on a SaskPower map as 138 kV.  I presume that is the combined capacity of the 6 transmission lines? I don’t know.

There are 4 high-power transmission lines running along the south side of Furdale (map).  The lines are almost in some people’s backyard.

There is a spur along the north side of the community that takes electricity a short distance into Saskatoon.  I have no idea what voltage it carries.

These 6 cancers may be enough to be helpful.  Without research there is no way of knowing the complete picture on the cancers.  And you know the story on Health Canada’s  Canadian Childhood Cancer Surveillance and Control Programme (CCCSCP) (the funding was cut in the 1990’s). (see #24 below)

Furdale tells me that other reports on the connection between EMFs and cancer (plus other ailments like dementia) are legitimate.  It might help to explain why the funding to the CCCSCP was cut.

(More on the Furdale cancers in #24, FATE OF THE CANADIAN CHILDHOOD CANCER SURVEILLANCE AND CONTROL PROGRAMME (CCCSCP))

=========================

  1. CANCER RESEARCH DAY IN SASKATOON, DEC 5TH

GOOD NEWS:  there is a Cancer Research Day here (Saskatoon) on Dec 5th.

Some have attended these events in the past.  The research money goes where the funding is.  The funding is “find a cure” (the pharmaceutical companies and their influence).

Please let me know if you will attend.  I’m going.  Will take the information on Furdale and EMFs.  Would be good to have a few “alternative”

voices in the room.

I get nauseous every time I hear “research to find a cure”.  They really need to be pressured to “remove the cause”.  Get out of their ivory towers.

=======================================

  1. CONTACT GAYLE COHEN, “HIGH FREQUENCY VOLTAGE ASSOCIATED WITH CANCER INCIDENCE IN TEACHERS IN A CALIFORNIA SCHOOL (2008)”

Page 8.

“CONCLUSION.  The cancer incidence in the teachers at this school is unusually high and is strongly associated with exposure to high frequency voltage transients.  In the 28 years since electromagnetic fields (EMFs) were first associated with cancer, a number of exposure metrics have been suggested.  If our findings are substantiated, high voltage frequency transients are a new and important exposure metric and a possible universal human carcinogen similar to ionizing radiation.”

Sorry I missed your call.  I contacted Dr. Milham, he had been working with the teachers from the beginning of this issue with La Quinta Middle School.

You can see a history of our problem and lack of support we have received from our district if you go to our website.  http://lqms.net/default.aspx (La Quinta Middle School’s Cancer Site! We need to stand together!)

I contacted Dr. Milham and he said I could give you his phone number.

His knowledge will be more helpful to you then I could ever be.  A copy of his research is on our website also.  I am also including his email address below.  Let me know if I can be of any more assistance.  Good luck.

Gayle Cohen”

=======================================

  1. DR. MILHAM DID THE RESEARCH STUDY IN LA QUINTA. HE TELLS US “HOW TO PROCEED” HERE.

Dear Sandra,

The high voltage transmission line  (HVTL) / cancer connection is solid for childhood leukemia, and very recently, a Swiss study has associated Alzheimer’s disease with residence near HVTs.

Someone should measure the magnetic fields at the residences in question. If they are above 4 mG, then with adequate census data and access to provincial tumor registry data, it should be relatively easy to determine if Furdale has an increased cancer incidence.

New HVTLs should not be located close to home or schools.

Best,  Sam Milham

  1. AUSTRALIA ADVISES PUBLIC TO REDUCE EXPOSURE TO ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS

http://www.abc.net.au/science/news/stories/2007/1988802.htm

Call to cut magnetic field exposure in home Anna Salleh ABC Science Online Friday, 27 July 2007

Australian authorities will advise the public on how to reduce their exposure to electromagnetic fields from common household appliances like fridges and clock radios, in line with precautionary moves internationally.

The Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPANSA) says this is part of wide-ranging advice designed to limit exposure to extremely low-frequency (ELF) fields.

But some say Australia should go further, pointing to some countries that have set targets to reduce such exposure.

While there is no absolute proof that such fields cause disease, there have been some puzzling links.

Most important is a link between ELF fields from powerlines and childhood leukaemia, which has persisted for some time. But scientists still don’t know how such fields could cause ill health.

This month a UK government inquiry recommended a moratorium on building new homes and schools within 60 metres of existing high-voltage overhead powerlines.

The inquiry also called on the government to consider ELF field exposure when planning new homes and schools.

ARPANSA says it is taking a precautionary approach with its new recommendations.  …”

4.  Others?

=======================

  1. FACEBOOK GROUP

I can set up a group on facebook – for an information sharing purpose.  The information on EMFs might be helpful to people who are fighting Independent

(Private) Power Producers (IPPs) in B.C., nuclear power reactors (that require transmission lines), etc. There are lots of those groups.  They could add another whole layer of informed and active people to help the Mothers in Tsawwassen.

What would the name of the group be?  Your suggestions are welcome!

(The “EMF” groups on facebook are related to a musical group and to EMF broadcasting.  (I don’t know what that is.))

=======================

  1. WILL THE PREMIER OF B.C. BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CANCERS THAT DEVELOP IN TSAWWASSEN? … OR IS IT US?

I spoke with the Premier’s office, discussed:

– the evidence of Furdale,

– the teachers at La Quinta Middle School (“The cancer incidence in the teachers at this school is unusually high and is strongly associated with exposure to high frequency voltage transients”),

– the withdrawal of funding from the Canadian Childhood Cancer Surveillance and Control Programme (The government didn’t want to know what it was finding)

The Premier’s office was sympathetic but the transmission line is going to proceed anyway.

I said that this is criminal behavior.  The responsibility of the government is to protect the citizens.

I told the Premier’s office that I would send a copy of the information that we will be circulating.

TO:

Honourable Gordon Campbell   (tel. 250-387-1715);  premier@gov.bc.ca

As I understand, the juice is scheduled to start flowing in the new 230 kV line in January.  One tower for the line is in the school parking lot in Tsawwassen.

Subject: Second potential nuclear site announced

Hi All–

Bruce Power announced last night that it is considering a second site for a nuclear facility in the Peace Country.  It is located about 30 km north of Peace River, on the west side of the river but east of Weberville Road (Highway 743).  I think that would put it almost directly east of Chinook Valley.

Duncan Hawthorne stated on the radio this morning that the company has not abandoned the proposed site on Lac Cardinal.  However, he said he has always wanted to look at “other options”.

Drilling for samples at the new site will begin on Monday.

17.   LIVING NEAR A POWERLINE CAN DOUBLE YOUR CHANCE OF DYING FROM ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE, SWISS STUDY, NOV 2008.   FROM POWERWATCH  website:

http://www.powerwatch.org.uk/news/20081112_alzheimers_powerlines.asp

Nov 12/2008 – Living close to a powerline can double your chance of dying from Alzheimer’s Disease

A large new study from Switzerland[Huss 2008] shows a significant dose-related increase in deaths from Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) in people who have lived for a number of years within 50 metres of high-voltage overhead powerlines. The results of this new study considerably raises the stakes in the EMF-health debate by showing up a serious and wide-spread public ill health problem as being closely associated with power-frequency magnetic field exposure. The cost of dementia to the UK economy is estimated to be over £17 billion (GBP) per year.

Researchers at Bern University’s Institute of Social and Preventative Medicine in Switzerland have found that people who have lived for least 5 years within 50 metres had an adjusted hazard ratio for dying of AD of 1.51, increasing to 1.78 after 10 years and to 2.0 (CI 1.21-3.33) after living there for at least 15 years. The pattern was similar for senile dementia.

The relation between where people live in relation to power lines and mortality from neurodegenerative conditions was analyzed within the data for

4.7 million people in the Swiss National (mortality and census) Cohort, covering the period 2000-2005. If anything this will have underestimated the risk as AD is often not entered as the prime or even underlying cause of death – so the actual incidence of the disease will almost certainly be higher.

Team member Professor Matthias Egger also warned that sleeping in power-frequency magnetic fields from any source probably presents a dementia risk. He said: “Anything that is plugged in and that is on all the time and that is near to your body is a source of EMF”.

Magnetic fields from underground electricity cables, especially those that run under the pavements and supply our houses are another most significant source of higher-than-normal magnetic fields in homes, often up to several microtesla. This was highlighted in a report by the NRPB a few years ago [Maslanyj 2005]. Powerwatch has found it to be a common problem, especially in older areas of UK cities. The Department of Health SAGE Process will be investigating this matter during 2009 and hopefully reporting in early 2010.

Previous Research

The findings of this new Swiss study are consistent with the combined analyses of risk of Alzheimer’s with occupational exposure to power-frequency magnetic fields by Ana Garcia[Garcia 2008], published earlier in 2008. Her study combined the results of 14 occupational studies (from 1995 to 2004) of EMF exposure and the later development of Alzheimer’s disease. This resulted in an overall increased odds (risk) ratio of 2.03 (95% CI 1.38–3.00) from the case-control studies and 1.62 (CI 1.16–2.27) rising to 2.05 (95% CI 1.51–2.80) for men. They estimated that the effect occurred when the average magnetic field was over about 0.5 microtesla.

Interestingly, this would agree well with the 50 metres distance from the powerlines in the new Swiss study.

The evidence for risk of Alzheimer’s is now quantitatively comparable with that for childhood leukaemia, which is recognised as an IARC class 2B carcinogen.

PubMed A service of the U.S. National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health

Residence Near Power Lines and Mortality From Neurodegenerative Diseases:

Longitudinal Study of the Swiss Population.

Huss A, Spoerri A, Egger M, Röösli M; for the Swiss National Cohort Study.

 

The relation between residential magnetic field exposure from power lines and mortality from neurodegenerative conditions was analyzed among 4.7 million persons of the Swiss National Cohort (linking mortality and census data), covering the period 2000-2005. Cox proportional hazard models were used to analyze the relation of living in the proximity of 220-380 kV power lines and the risk of death from neurodegenerative diseases, with adjustment for a range of potential confounders. Overall, the adjusted hazard ratio for Alzheimer’s disease in persons living within 50 m of a 220-380 kV power line was 1.24 (95% confidence interval (CI): 0.80, 1.92) compared with persons who lived at a distance of 600 m or more. There was a dose-response relation with respect to years of residence in the immediate vicinity of power lines and Alzheimer’s disease: Persons living at least 5 years within 50 m had an adjusted hazard ratio of 1.51 (95% CI: 0.91, 2.51), increasing to 1.78 (95%

CI: 1.07, 2.96) with at least 10 years and to 2.00 (95% CI: 1.21, 3.33) with at least 15 years. The pattern was similar for senile dementia. There was little evidence for an increased risk of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, or multiple sclerosis.

There is no copyright on this email!  You can block parts out, delete them, and use what’s left.  Whatever you like.

Sometimes the best strategy is KISS!  (Keep It Simple Sweetie)

Something like:

Death by cancer or alzheimer’s disease is worse than death by a bullet.

 

Stop the new high voltage transmission line through Tsawwassen, with a tower right on the school parking lot.

 

The high voltage transmission line  (HVTL) / cancer connection is solid for childhood leukemia, and very recently, a Swiss study has associated Alzheimer’s disease with residence near HVTs.

New HVTLs should not be located close to homes or schools.

Anyone who authorizes a high voltage transmission line that is close to homes and to schools, given the information about EMFs that is known today, should be held accountable and responsible for the disease and deaths that will be associated with these lines.

Sincerely,

=================================

23.  NEW TRANSMISSION LINES: KNOW WHERE THE ELECTRICITY IS GOING.

INDEPENDENT (PRIVATE) POWER PRODUCERS (IPPs) on BC RIVERS.

It’s up to the people in B.C. to answer this.  I only know by rumour which may be false, that the line through Tsawwassen crosses to Vancouver Island; from there a line is to run to Washington state.

The issue of Independent Power Producers (IPPs) is growing rapidly in B.C.

As I understand,

–  the Campbell Govt legislated changes to B.C. Hydro to change its mandate.

It can no longer own the dams for hydro-electric power generation.

–  it has sold and has applications for more licenses which give rights to “Independent (Private) Power Producers” to build dams and generate the electricity.  They have rights to sections of B.C. rivers.

–  “Save Our Rivers” was formed when people learned the implications of the IPPs.  Over a thousand people came to one public meeting to express their outrage.  The Premier backed down on the Pitt River IPP.

 

IN CONTEXT:

–  In our network earlier we circulated the news of the report out of the US southwest:  the two largest man-made water reservoirs in the US, on the Colorado River (Lake Powell and Lake Mead behind the Hoover and Glen Canyon Dams) are drying up.  They have a 50/50 chance of being dry by 2021.

As the water levels go down, they have a 50/50 chance of losing their hydro-electric capability by 2013.  There are millions of people and industries in California, Nevada and Arizona that are dependent upon the water and energy from these reservoirs.  Under NAFTA you can’t have preferential treatment.  So if the IPPs start selling energy to the US (where it will command a high dollar), the people of B.C. will pay the same high dollar.  And once you start shipping south, under the terms negotiated (given away) for Canada by former Prime Minister Brian Mulroney and Company, you have to maintain proportional shipment to the U.S., no matter what the domestic need is.

24.  MOTHERS AGAINST POWER POLES (MAPP), FROM EMAIL SENT SEPT 27

Sent:  Sat 27/09/2008

High voltage transmission lines are the death-knell (from cancer) for many children, not to mention adults.  Long-timers in this network know because of the story of Furdale.  Unfortunately, the cause-and-effect relationship is not well known generally.  Deliberately.

That is changing.  Many thanks to Mothers Against Power Poles (MAPP).  These women inspire me.  I’ve sent a note of support to them.

(Aside: The effects of the transmission lines speak in support of small-scale, localized power production.)

From their web-site:  http://www.mothersagainstpowerpoles.com/

” These are the basic facts that brought MAPP together:

– Mothers in Tsawwassen are united to fight the 230 KVOLT (and higher) power lines being erected right through the middle of our small residential community

– There is no established limit on the power line KVOLT for the future

– Radiation leaking from power lines have been known to cause childhood leukemia, lung cancer, skin cancer and increases in suicide and depression

– We are afraid of the “corona ionization effect”,  whereby carcinogenic particulates are attracted to the power lines like magnets, and people breathe in these carcinogens

– With prevailing winds from Delta Port coming off the ocean, Tsawwassen stands in the direct path of this particulate

– Every child in Tsawwassen will be attending the ONE and ONLY high school, which is targeted for a massive power pole in the main parking lot

– The electricity is being sold to California and Washington

– President Bush announced the agreement on national television, much to the astonishment of the residents of Tsawwassen

– Billions of dollars will be earned by private power companies, including BCTC, and they must spend some of the profit to do the right thing and bury and shield the power lines

– The truth was not revealed and the BC Government promised the power lines would not be erected. Now the BC Government must do the right thing

– BC Government is selling out…….hundreds of licenses have been sold to private power companies outside of BC, and Tsawwassen is paying the price

– Premier Gordon Campbell must do the right thing and spend the money to bury the power lines

– Tsawwassen is being squeezed between lucrative private power contracts and North American clients…we are the gateway to the power

– Tsawwassen has been deemed “unstable” in the event of an earthquake, which would make the very real possibility of the power poles collapsing a catastrophe. The entire high school population would be in grave danger, along with all residents in town

25.  FATE OF THE CANADIAN CHILDHOOD CANCER SURVEILLANCE AND CONTROL PROGRAMME (CCCSCP); MORE ON FURDALE

Hi Lynda (Tswwasswn),

I don’t know if this is of any value to you – – it is the documentation of WHY there is a lack of research in this country for you to use in your fight.  It is a damning story, well documented.

The letter from the CCCSCP is at the bottom – scroll down to “LETTER FROM THE GOVERNMENT:”

———————————

There is another story to go with all this (Furdale).  The Canadian Childhood Cancer Surveillance & Control Programme.

If you look on the Health Canada CCCSCP web-site, it looks as though we have this wonderful programme that is going to lead to answers.  But we have a letter from the people there:  their budgets were slashed back around the year 2000.  All they have is a skeleton staff.  No money for more data collection and none for data analysis.  See appended.

Don’t let those power lines go up.  We’ll do whatever we can to help you.

I’ve had some response from my network of people already.  They’re right behind you.

Sandra

————————

APPENDED:

“In response to the 25% rise in childhood cancers reported by the Canadian Institute of Child Health (CICH) (the information was shown on the screen in Wendy Mesley’s CBC television documentary), the Federal Department of Health established the Canadian Childhood Cancer Surveillance & Control Programme in the early nineties to collect data:

–  where are the cancers occurring?

–  what age are the children?

–  what kinds of cancer?

–  etc.

 

As inconceivable as it might be, funding for the programme was DISCONTINUED by the Liberal Govt.  There is enough money to support CCCSCP in name only.”

 

“Health Research Foundations” were established with a stated priority for “funding research that has the potential for commercialization”.  Biotech pharmacy is, through the Health Research Foundations, a recipient of public money but the trail is covered over because the public has no way of knowing, from the name, that “Health Research Foundations” are funded by Government.  Here we have a clear example:  public money is diverted away from the research that would help address the CAUSES of a 25% increase in childhood cancers; then public money is funnelled to biotech pharmacy research with its “potential for commercialization”.  There will be no progress on REMOVAL OF CAUSE.  “Government fronts” are an obstacle that need to be removed / outlawed.”

 

Following is the record of Donna, along with the response from Health Canada, CCCSCP.

 

Don’t be fooled by the web-site for the CCCSCP.  The letter in 2004 from the CCCSCP, written in response to citizen efforts to track down the Report that was supposed to have  been issued, to track down the researchers, to track down the data that HAD been collected, that WAS no longer being collected (documentation below) tells the lie of the spin-doctors.

Visuals make an impact.

Here is the picture I spoke about – Tanya with several of her friends at a school fun night. (INSERT: there are 8 children in the photograph.) Three out of these children were diagnosed with cancer. Two are now deceased. A 4th friend (not in the picture) was diagnosed this summer. I have concealed the faces of all the children with the exception of my daughter to protect their privacy & that of their families.

==================

The Queen Elizabeth Power Generating Station is on the other side of the

River: there are high voltage transmission lines.

=======================

I will use the example of my own experience. My 15 year old daughter was diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma in 1997. In Aug. of ’98, just after my daughter had completed an extremely gruelling one year treatment protocol for her ‘mystery’ cancer, I received a request asking for my permission to release her medical files for use in a study. I was reluctant to do so without more information. Eventually I received more information from Judy Kosloski (the Provincial Study Co-ordinator located at Epidemiology, Prevention & Screening at 4101 Dewdney Ave in Regina Ph 306-766-2170).

I was told the principle investigator of the study was Marie Desmeules (613-957-0577).

The Canadian Childhood Cancer Surveillance and Control Program (CCCSCP) was announced in July 1992 by the Minister of the Federal Health Dept. The program was part of the government’s Brighter Futures initiative aimed at reducing risks to the health and normal development of children. Its goal was to contribute towards reducing the suffering and burden caused by childhood cancer. To accomplish this a nationwide information system on childhood cancer was established. One of the main objectives was to collect information on stage at diagnosis by age of the patient, geographic region & cancer site. Another was to estimate the economic costs.

From time to time I would make general inquiries into how the study was coming and receive vague replies. I have a newsletter that I received from CCCSCP in July of 2000. At this time the newsletter said ‘the overall goal of the etiology component of the CCCSCP was to establish a national, population-based database of childhood cancer cases and matched controls with detailed information on major putative risk factors. This database would be used to identify individuals or groups at high risk for developing cancer.

In Aug of 2000 I made a call to inquire how the study was coming. I spoke to Catherine Makris, a research analyst. The notes I made during our conversation say I was told that the principle investigator of the study, Marie Desmeules, had moved re job instability and was put on assignment somewhere else in women’s health. I was told that there was now zero funding for childhood cancer investigations because of Allan Rock’s budget. Things were no longer up to date but hey, they were doing their best. (As a side note I made a note that a Howard Morrison was involved with a pesticide risk assessment study.)

My still unanswered questions & concerns are :

Did the collection of this data actually cease in the year 2000 despite cancer being the number one disease killer of children in North America?

Where is the raw data that has been collected?

Is this a case of information being collected and nothing being done with it?

Has any further work been done to estimate economic costs?

(and lets not forget the psychological and emotional costs too – At Mcmaster in Hamilton I observed parents going from the ped department where their child was diagnosed, straight to the shrink department where parents were put on antidepressants and antianxiety drugs.) I myself spent a small fortune on ulcer medication and gavison.

LETTER FROM THE GOVERNMENT:

Most recently in writing to CCSCB this is the reply (Oct. 2004) I (Donna) received.

Dear Donna:

Thank you for your inquiry. The Program you refer to, the Canadian Childhood Cancer Surveillance and Control Program (CCCSCP), is still in operation.

However, due to decreased funding, the CCCSCP now functions at a level of intensity that is significantly lower than initially planned and implemented. Currently, the Program’s viability is directly at risk as only core salary costs have been secured. The newly formed Public Health Agency of Canada (formerly part of Health Canada) will continue efforts to work with provincial partners to secure long term viability for the Program.

 

Despite this, the Program has established a national network of experts which is responsive to fundamental surveillance needs within childhood cancer control. During this process, the Program has produced a number of information resources for a variety of consumers. I would be happy to send you some of these documents if you like.

Regards,

Les

So as one can see less and less money is going into determining why children in Canada get cancer. My observation is that we, as a society, really don’t want to know why because we will have to change our individual lifestyles.

And we don’t want to interfere with economic profits. So we myopically focus our efforts and our hope on cures that large pharmaceutical companies are happy to offer.

Donna

========================

The CCCSCP is a kind of front.  We have a web-site with names and fine statements.  Without the letter from “Les” and Donna’s background you don’t know that there is little substance behind the web-site.  Only the wind shuffling papers on an empty Ottawa parking lot, small fragments of morality left in the dust and rubble.

================

(1)  COMMENTARY

 

The Delta B.C. School Superintendent dismisses the information I sent to him about the:

–  childhood cancer rate in Furdale, adjacent to the high-voltage transmission lines.

–  withdrawal of funding from Health Canada’s Canadian Childhood Cancer Surveillance and Control Programme.

 

The information can be ignored, why?  … because I am not a professional.

 

The letter from the University Board of Governors (in yesterday’s email) tells me that most of the professionals do not want to deal with any issues, regardless of their impact on our lives.  It is as though they believe they are not part of the community.  I cannot make sense of their attitude.

 

When John Ralston Saul last visited Saskatoon I put the question to him, “We know that these issues have to be addressed.  Why is it that the people who are the most qualified to speak up, to help inform, are the very people who won’t engage?  … the doctors, the people at the universities, the Ph D’s”

(There are some exceptions such as the Canadian Assoc of Physicians for the Environment (CAPE) and other individuals.  But when we work to stop the unnecessary use of pesticides the local health districts are noticeably absent or, as expressed by one Regina City Councillor, “Doctor, I can’t tell which side of the fence you are sitting on.”)

WHY won’t the professionals speak up?  John Ralston Saul’s answer was (not in his words), it’s because, “educated” or “moneyed” people become “respectable”.  The only way I can understand that is:  Respectable people have achieved what they want in life – respectability.  They won’t do anything to put that at risk.  … Is that how it works?

Well, if sufficient numbers of respectable and influential people in Germany had spoken out in the lead-up to World War 2, Hitler would have been stopped. Forms of betrayal.  As I see from the work in this network over 8 years: common folk have misplaced trust in those who should provide the leadership in the society.  Leadership does not come from the “influential” people.

In today’s world the agenda is being driven by corporate interests, de-regulation – – the drive to make profits, with no concern for social and environmental outcomes.

I told you that Dr. Ernst Iskenius, a pediatrician from Germany has been in Canada recently. I heard him.  He presented the research that shows “a 60% increase in solid cancers and a 117% increase in leukemia among children up to five years of age living within 5 km of German nuclear reactors.  It also found a 20-40% increase for all cancers in children living within a 50 km radius of the plants.”

But more importantly, Dr. Iskenius described how it came about that the research was done and the methodology.  Prior to the study there was conflicting information, much of it coming through industry-funded initiatives.

TEN THOUSAND German people signed a petition to demand that the Government conduct scientifically-sound research to determine whether it was their imaginations or not, that too many children were getting cancer in the vicinity of the reactors.  A twelve member panel was established to oversee the research.  The study design is above challenge.  They controlled for variables and so on.  There is no disputing the 60% increase in solid cancers and the 117% increase in leukemia.

We can start by ensuring that ten thousand Canadians get information through email networks.  Then maybe we can collect the ten thousand signatures that will force the Governments to conduct bona fide research.

Aaah!  But then we will need another ten thousand signatures to force appropriate action in relation to the outcomes of the research.  Think of what Canada has accomplished in greenhouse gas reductions.  Hah!

When I read the reply from the University, when I read the reply from the School Superintendent (below), it’s very obvious what doesn’t work.

So,  here’s to new tactics!

Cheers!    Sandra

Re: Fwd(3): High Transmission Power Lines, childhood cancer in Furdale,

Sandra,

In response to your email stating that you are “concerned about the imminent emission levels (EMF) from the newly erected power lines” and the effects of these levels on our children.

The Delta School District relies on professional advice from experts in the field. Advice on public health matters comes from the World Health Organization, Health Canada, the Fraser Health Authority, and the BC Centre for Disease Control.

In a letter dated July 30, 2008, the Chief Medical Health Officer of the Fraser Health Authority stated that “. with respect to the issue of power lines and health, it is safe for students and staff to attend South Delta Secondary School.”  A copy of the full text of the letter from the Chief Medical Health Officer and other information is available on the District’s web-site at www.deltasd.bc.ca.

High Transmission Power Lines,  childhood cancer in Furdale, SK

TO:   Delta School District

CC:  Donna Ell, Mother of Tanya;  Anita Den Dicken and Linda Mills from MAPP

FROM:  Sandra Finley

Dear Superintendent Cardwell,

I spoke by telephone this morning with your Executive Assistant.

I would appreciate if you would please see that your Board of Trustees receives a copy of this.  Thank-you.

If the high-voltage transmission line goes near your school and community, there will be an increase in deaths caused by childhood cancer.

 

Furdale is a small hamlet near the River on the south side of Saskatoon.

The Queen Elizabeth Power Generating Station is across the River.  High voltage transmission lines cross the River and run beside the road that forms the north-side boundary of the hamlet.

Donna Ell sent this email to me in 2006:

“Here is the picture I spoke about – Tanya with several of her friends at a school fun night. (INSERT: there are 8 children in the photograph.) Three out of these children were diagnosed with cancer. Two are now deceased. A 4th friend (not in the picture) was diagnosed this summer. I have concealed the faces of all the children with the exception of my daughter to protect their privacy & that of their families.”

In April 2008, on Tanya’s birth date a boy, also a friend and now a student living in Edmonton was diagnosed with cancer.

Five kids out of a small population that lives adjacent to the high voltage transmission lines.

A woman in her twenties walked into the river and drowned herself after she was diagnosed with cancer.  I don’t know all the cancer cases in the community.

The Saskatchewan Government Cancer Agency says “This is another of those cancer clusters. We don’t know the cause of the cancer clusters.”.

I attended a presentation by a professor from Trent University, Dr. Magda Havas, at the Prevent Cancer NOW Conference in Ottawa.  The presentation was about cancer caused by radiation, including from high-voltage transmission lines.  After hearing the Professor’s information, there is little doubt in my mind but that the kids from the small community of Furdale are dead because of the bizarre brain cancer and other cancers caused by the high voltage transmission lines.

Identification of the cause of the cancers is somewhat muddied by proximity to 3 or 4 golf courses and farmers’ fields (heavy pesticide use).

It may be a synergistic effect that MAPP identifies: “We are afraid of the “corona ionization effect”,  whereby carcinogenic particulates are attracted to the power lines like magnets, and people breathe in these carcinogens“.

Synergy:  The interaction of two or more agents or forces so that their combined effect is greater than the sum of their individual effects.

Carcinogenic air-borne pesticides interacting with the radiation from the transmission lines.

For a number of years we have raised the Furdale example at every opportunity, provincially and nationally, with Government Health Departments and the University.  It seems that decision-makers have to be hit-over-the-head a thousand times before they will take action.

The only people who will stop the obvious dangers to the health of the children in your community caused by the high-voltage transmission lines is you, yourselves.  Others like myself can help by supplying information.

Best wishes,

Sincerely,

Sandra Finley

CANADIAN CHILDHOOD CANCER SURVEILLANCE & CONTROL PROGRAMME:  FUNDING CUT

There is another story to go with the Furdale children:  the Canadian Childhood Cancer Surveillance & Control Programme, set up in the early 1990’s, in response to a study by the Canadian Institute of Child Health.

The CICH found a 25% increase in childhood cancers in 25 years.  So the CCCSCP was set up to collect more data, find out where the cancers were happening, at what age, what kind of cancer, etc.

If you look on the Health Canada CCCSCP web-site, it looks as though Canadians have this wonderful programme that is going to lead to answers.

But we have a letter from the people at the CCCSCP:  their budgets were slashed back around the year 2000.  All they have is a skeleton staff.  No money for more data collection and none for data analysis. 

The Mother of one of the Furdale kids (Donna) has the letter (copied below).

While the programme was up and running she was asked to release the data for her daughter’s cancer to the CCCSCP.  In the end she agreed, but on the condition that she receive a copy of the report.  They told her the report would be out in about a year.

She heard nothing after a year and went back to them.  The woman who was responsible for the study (Donna had her name and phone number) was gone.

No way to find her.  No one had been assigned to the work the departed scientist had been doing.  So,  the Lead of the Group was moved;  there was no way of tracking her whereabouts.  Could not be found by an internet search.  The Budgets for the Canadian Childhood Cancer Surveillance & Control Programme was slashed.  No more data collection.  And no analysis.  Donna came up against a brick wall as far as getting any answers.  . . .  There’s more . . .

However, due to decreased funding, the CCCSCP now functions at a level of intensity that is significantly lower than initially planned and implemented. Currently, the Program’s viability is directly at risk as only core salary costs have been secured. The newly formed Public Health Agency of Canada (formerly part of Health Canada) will continue efforts to work with provincial partners to secure long term viability for the Program.

Despite this, the Program has established a national network of experts which is responsive to fundamental surveillance needs within childhood cancer control. During this process, the Program has produced a number of information resources for a variety of consumers. I would be happy to send you some of these documents if you like.

So as one can see less and less money is going into determining why children in Canada get cancer. My observation is that we, as a society, really don’t want to know why because we will have to change our individual lifestyles.

And we don’t want to interfere with economic profits. So we myopically focus our efforts and our hope on cures that large pharmaceutical companies are happy to offer.

INTEGRATION, MAKING THE CONNECTIONS  (Sandra speaking):

We compartmentalize and say “The !@$&#  Federal Govt (Health Department) that cut the Childhood Cancer Surveillance Programme”.

BUT there would not have been a Childhood Cancer Programmme IF the Departments of Environment and Fisheries (DFO) had been doing their job of protecting the commons (land, air, water).

There would not have been a Childhood Cancer Programmme IF the Department of Agriculture was not in the BUSINESS of developing products that increase the chemical load.

There would not have been a Childhood Cancer Programmme IF we had effective REGULATION.

There might have been regulation IF there was adequate FUNDING of Environment and Fisheries.

None of this would have happened IF we citizens had not been content to sit on our back-sides, in dumb belief that “the Government is looking after us”.

The powers-that-be will look after themselves.

We hand off our responsibility for our own lives and the lives of our children to other people to look after, at our own peril. That’s the way it works and always has.

When you use an integrated approach to problem-solving (which this is) — aah! the light goes on: we are missing key players! – the Department of Finance and Treasury Board.

Shortly before being turfed out, the Liberals massacred DFO’s budget, stepping-up the transition to “stewardship” (i.e. get rid of the regulations.  Documented in another email). Obviously we (citizens) along with the University and the Departments of Health, Agriculture, Environment and DFO are not going to solve the problem alone – Finance and Treasury Board have to be at the table, too.

Effective problem-solving will occur ONLY if the parties (citizens, Agriculture, Environment, Health, DFO, Universities, and Finance/Treasury Board) come together.

Citizens will work with you. No one Department or University or citizen group can do what needs to be done, alone.

OUTCOME:  we sent the information, set up the opportunity for a collective problem-solving approach.  Nothing came of it.  No response.  Tony Clement, Minister of Health.

Dear All,

This series of emails has talked about The Canadian Childhood Cancer Surveillance & Control Programme (CCCSCP). This is the promised documentation; the letter from the Government (2004) is part of it.

“In response to the 25% rise in childhood cancers reported by the Canadian Institute of Child Health (CICH) (the information was shown on the screen in Wendy Mesley’s CBC television documentary), the Federal Department of Health established the Canadian Childhood Cancer Surveillance & Control Programme in the early nineties to collect data:

– where are the cancers occurring?

– what age are the children?

– what kinds of cancer?

– etc.

As inconceivable as it might be, funding for the programme was DISCONTINUED by the Liberal Govt. There is enough money to support CCCSCP in name only.”

Health Research Foundations” were established with a stated priority for “funding research that has the potential for commercialization“. Biotech pharmacy is, through the Health Research Foundations, a recipient of public money but the trail is covered over because the public has no way of knowing, from the name, that “Health Research Foundations” are funded by Government. Here we have a clear example: public money is diverted away from the research that would help address the CAUSES of a 25% increase in childhood cancers; then public money is funneled to biotech pharmacy research with its “potential for commercialization”. There will be no progress on REMOVAL OF CAUSE (there’s no commercial interest in removal of cause, only a public interest). “Government fronts” are an obstacle that need to be removed / outlawed.”

Don’t be fooled by the web-site for the CCCSCP. The letter in 2004 from the CCCSCP, written in response to citizen efforts to track down the Report that was supposed to have been issued, to track down the researchers, to track down the data that HAD been collected, that WAS no longer being collected tells the lie of the spin-doctors.

http://www.phac-aspc.gc.ca/ccdpc-cpcmc/cancer/publications/cccscp-vol7no1_e.html 

======================

Most ANYTHING that has to do with REMOVAL OF CAUSE does not have POTENTIAL FOR COMMERCIALIZATION. Meanwhile the rate of childhood cancer in Canada has escalated by 25% in 25 years; the trend will continue and escalate DUE TO A POLICY DECISION OF GOVERNMENT TO PURSUE “PUBLIC-PRIVATE PARTNERSHIPS” AND CONCOMMITANT HEALTH RESEARCH THAT HAS THE POTENTIAL FOR COMMERCIALIZATION.

Aaach! There is a stream of expletives I would like to use. This is criminal behaviour.

The research agenda for health is very much about funding bio-tech (pharmaceutical) – just like the changes that gutted the research at Ag Canada research stations was about handing the seed sector over to transgenic/chemical transnational corporations (P3’s (“Public-Private-Partnerships”: we can afford to hand over billions to these transnational corporations, but we cannot afford to fund the public research function). Have to have “matched funding” – so it’s taxpayers that foot a large part of the bill for the development; the regulatory function disappears. This is very serious stuff.

=======================

THE DIALOGUE — “ON ONE CONDITION”

(Names and phone numbers are in email #6.)

– The Government asks Donna (Mother) to sign forms to release the data on her daughter for inclusion in the Childhood Cancer Surveillance Program data-base.

Donna agrees to release the data for her daughter ON ONE CONDITION: that she receive a copy of the subsequent Research Report.

Health Canada agrees.

Donna asks “when can I expect the Report?”

Response: in about a year’s time.

A year comes and goes.

Donna phones the researcher.

She is told that the researcher is no longer there.

Donna asks: may I speak with the person who took over her work when she left?

Response: there is no one who took over her work.

Donna: there was a lot of data that has been collected. (The Surveillance and Control Programme was set up in the early 90’s). Where is the data? What is being done with it?

Donna hit a brick wall. Try as she might, there was no information to be had.

Aug of 2000, “I was told that there was now zero funding for childhood cancer investigations ….”

But she is persistent.

when the 4th child was diagnosed with cancer in 2004, Donna WROTE to the

CCCSCP: what is the status of the research?

the written reply she received appears in email #6: (Oct. 2004) “…Currently, the Program’s viability is directly at risk as only core salary costs have been secured.”

Hence my statement: “The CCCSCP is a kind of front, too. We have a web-site with names and fine statements. Without the letter from the CCCSCP and Donna’s background you don’t know that there is little substance behind the web-site. Only the wind shuffling papers on an empty Ottawa parking lot, small fragments of morality left in the dust and rubble.”

Donna released the data for her daughter ON ONE CONDITION, the Report. The condition was never met.

Cancer rates continue to rise, funding for the Surveillance and Control Programme is cut. Through the Health Research Foundations public money is funneled to biotech pharmacy to fund research “that has the potential for commercialization”.

I like to repeat the “theme songs” for our network every 6 months or so.

(Web-site www.sandrafinley.ca, click on the right-hand button “Empowerment”.

This is one of the “theme songs” posted there.)

“The red-painted tyranny was not

The worst about our tyrants

The worst thereby were we ourselves

All our cowardice and servility

And that we also were the evil ourselves Just that is the chance and our luck You see: It works! We also take back The everlasting human right ourselves

Now we breathe again, we cry and we laugh the stale sadness out of the breast man, we are stronger than rats and dragons

– and had forgotten it and always knew.”

Hearing on federal government travel vaccine ban postponed

Posted On: July 7, 2022

CALGARY: The Federal Court has postponed the trial date for the Justice Centre’s legal challenge to strike down the federal government’s mandatory Covid vaccine requirements for air travellers (the “travel ban”), after the Government of Canada requested the hearing be adjourned. The September 19, 2022 hearing has been rescheduled to Monday, October 31, 2022.

In October of 2021, the federal government announced that anyone travelling by air, train, or ship, must receive the required number of Covid vaccines in order to travel. The travel ban prevented approximately 6 million vaccine-free Canadians (15% of Canada’s population) from travel within Canada and prevented them from flying out of Canada. Canada’s new definition for vaccination as including required boosters could double or triple the number of affected Canadians should the travel mandate be renewed in the future.

The Justice Centre filed evidence in March 2022 on behalf of 11 witnesses, including five expert witnesses. The evidence filed shows how the Canadians involved in the lawsuit cannot travel to help sick loved ones, get to work, visit family and friends, access health care outside of Canada, take international vacations, and live ordinary lives. Expert medical evidence now filed with the court ranges from scientific evidence about Covid spread among both vaccinated and unvaccinated, risks associated with taking the new Covid vaccines, vaccine harms such as myocarditis and possible effects on fertility, and the superiority of natural immunity.

The Federal Government filed evidence in April on behalf of 16 witnesses, including five experts in defence of the Travel Ban. Justice Centre lawyers spent all of June 2022 in cross examination of these government witnesses in preparation for the full trial in fall.

Despite that the court ordered this action, involving four separate cases, to be consolidated, and that it be heard on an expedited basis, given the serious infringement on Canadians’ mobility rights and other rights protected under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, in a letter dated Sunday, June 19, 2022, Canada stated the adjournment was required due to:

  • the fact that the urgency to have these applications heard and determined has, at a minimum, been significantly reduced;
  • the information just received from the Translation Bureau that they will require a minimum of 18 business days to prepare an official translation of Canada’s Memorandum of Fact and Law; and
  • the recent unexpected need to reassign a new senior lead counsel for these applications.

Responding for the Justice Centre on June 22, 2022, legal counsel strongly opposed Canada’s request to adjourn the matter.

“The application remains a live controversy, is of continued constitutional significance, and has not been deemed otherwise by the Court. It is submitted that a matter of such importance should be heard as expeditiously as reasonably possible, and that Canada has not established any compelling or exceptional circumstances to warrant the delay of this application. It is submitted that the request for adjournment should be denied,” states the letter.

The Court decided to grant the government the adjournment, ruling that any prejudice against the Applicants represented by the Justice Centre could be addressed by awarding costs (a monetary amount for legal expenses). The Court added that while none of Canada’s requests individually justified a delay, “taken together, they constitute the kind of extraordinary circumstances that justify adjourning a hearing.”

In a June 14, 2022, Federal Government news release, the government announced that as of June 20, vaccine requirements would be suspended “for domestic and outbound travel, federally regulated transportation sectors and federal government employees.”

Below is an updated schedule of the Travel Ban lawsuit:

August 5: Service and filing of Applicants’ Records and Response to the Respondent’s Mootness Application (Mootness means the government will argue that with the suspension of travel ban, the legal action is now pointless.)
September 21: One day in-person Mootness Hearing
September 30: Service and filing of Respondent’s Record
October 31 – November 4: Hearing

“We are eager to have this matter heard in court. Similar Covid mandate cases have been adjudicated in the United States, India, and New Zealand. Courts around the world have found that governments must respect fundamental human rights, including the right to bodily autonomy, which means individuals have the right to decide freely on what medical treatment they wish to receive, and the fundamental right of mobility, to enter and leave a free and democratic country,” notes Justice Centre lawyer Eva Chipiuk.

“Canadians cannot live in a country which will not permit them to freely leave for business, for necessary medical care, to see loved ones abroad, to vacation, or simply to move away. Any country that makes receipt of a drug or medical treatment a condition to departing the country has lost all semblance of freedom and respect for human dignity,” states Ms. Chipiuk.

“Canada was one of the few countries in the world that had a travel ban on unvaccinated citizens flying within the country and to different provinces. This travel ban has not been cancelled, only suspended, and so court action must continue,” notes Ms. Chipiuk.

Court delays Trudeau government having to answer for forced Covid vaccine passports

 

The Federal Court in Canada has postponed the trial date for the Justice Center for Constitutional Affairs’ case against the Government to remove the mandatory Covid vaccine passports for air travel.

The trial date was postponed from Sept 19 to Oct 31.

Last October, the Canadian Government introduced the Covid vaccine passport prohibiting anyone who could not produce one from flying within or leaving Canada.

The Justiuce Centre filed a case against the implementation of the passport on behalf of 11 witnesses.  The evidence filed shows how the vaccine passports have affected the lives of Canadians.

The Justice Centre has also filed evidence showing the downsides of the Covid vaccines.

In a letter to the court last month (link) the Government asked the court to postpone the trial date.

The application remains a live controversy, is of continued constitutional significance, and has not been deemed otherwise by the Court.  It is submitted that a matter of such importance should be heard as expeditiously as reasonably possible, and that Canada has not established any compelling or exceptional circumstances to warrant the delay of this application.  It is submitted that the request for adjournment should be denied,” the letter stated.

The court ruled (link) in the Government’s favour.

“We are eager to have this matter heard in court.  Similar Covid mandate cases have been adjudicated in the U.S., India, and New Zealand.

Courts around the world have found that governments must respect fundamental human rights, including the right to bodily autonomy, which means individuals have the right to decide freely on what medical treatment they wish to receive, and the fundamental right of mobility, to enter and leave a free and democratic country,” noted Justice Centre lawyer Eva Chipiuk.

“Canadians cannot live in a country which will not permit them to freely leave for business, for necessary medical care, to see loved ones abroad, to vacation, or simply to move away.  Any country that makes receipt of a drug or medical treatment a condition to departing the country has lost all semblance of freedom and respect for human dignity.

“Canada was one of the few countries in the world that had a travel ban on unvaccinated citizens flying within the country and to different provinces.  This travel ban has not been canceled, only suspended, and so court action must continue.”

The Cowichan Valley has a water problem.

“There isn’t a water shortage right now, but there is a significant issue regarding the allotment of water for future developments,” said Brian Dennison, current head of special projects and former manager of utilities with the Cowichan Valley Regional District (CVRD).

Across the CVRD, the main surface water lakes and rivers (Shawnigan Lake/Creek, Koksilah River, Cowichan Lake/River, Chemainus River, and Stocking Lake/Creek) are considered ‘fully allocated’, meaning no further water can be drawn.

Unlike Greater Victoria’s unfettered access to Sooke Lake, and ability to flood and draw at will, most of Cowichan Valley’s lakeshore is privately owned and already built around.

“In order to store more water, you’d be impacting their property rights,” said Dennison talking about the complications of flooding either Shawnigan or Cowichan Lake for access to more water.

Engineers then began looking beneath the bedrock to create wells but so far, the wells in the region are proving to be unpredictable and unreliable.

“We’ve had wells under-perform, even right next to the Cowichan Lake,” said Dennison. “To understand all the complexity, the integration, where the water comes from, where it’s going to, how it’s connected, is very difficult to know with any accuracy.”

The provincial government, through the Ministry of Forests, is now in charge of regulating groundwater extraction in British Columbia. Developers in the CVRD now need a license if they’re intending to build anything more than a single-family residence.

“It’s just very frustrating to wait when we think we’re there,” Mike Baier co-founder of Limona Group told CHEK News on Friday, who owns 150 acres including the recently burnt-down Pioneer Square in Mill Bay, and has had plans to build a new community there in the works since 2016.

The Ministry of Forestry told CHEK News in a statement how long a water licence takes “depends on the complexity of the application and the quality of information provided to support the application.”

Mill Bay is one of the areas in the CVRD seeing the highest development demand, and also the most problems with water.

“There are about 7-8 new developments for around 1,800-2,000 new homes, all looking for new water. And that’s a lot of water,” said Dennison.

As a result, the lack of a reliable water source is putting new developments in the region on hold.

“The province is having to look at that very carefully because there have been wells in decline. We don’t want to be having people building homes or making decisions when we don’t really know what we have for sure,” said Dennison.

 

Productivity in some wells has abruptly dropped in half.

Dennison says all the decision-makers are cautiously waiting for more research on the wells and water levels, warning that developers could see a phased approval of their plans instead of full to slowly test how the new wells respond.

“I would guess it’s going to be a while,” warned Dennison to developers. “You can’t just hope, you have to know.”

In the meantime, the provincial government, Mill Bay Waterworks, and the CVRD are trying to find solutions including better conservation, possibly desalination, and using reclaimed water (something which Mill Bay’s newly renovated sewage treatment centre is equipped with).

Reclaimed or recycled water is primarily municipal sewage that has been treated in a wastewater facility. In long drought-suffering California, recycled water is used in irrigation, as toilet water, even in dishwashers and laundry machines.

“You start to use reclaimed water, your demand starts to drop off, so you can have more homes, more people being able to live there on less water,” said Dennison.

Adding to the matter, the Malahat Nation is seeking to manage the water in its territory within the CVRD.

“Malahat seeks to protect its rights to water, to preserve environmental flow needs, and to promote sustainable development and long-term growth in the region,” said Malahat Nation in a statement to CHEK News.

“Malahat is worried about overuse of groundwater and wants a greater focus on water conservation initiatives like low-flow technology, and dealing with aging infrastructure that can lead to waste. Malahat’s vision is to develop an overarching, co-management regime to put in place planning around groundwater to balance the needs of all water users.”

Meanwhile, the B.C. government is left carefully balancing two necessities: water and housing.

“You gotta have water. Water first,” said Dennison.

20 minute interview with Dr Ryan Cole, from Bright Light News.

The covid injections produce no benefit. They are extremely dangerous and leave many people dead or injured, with more to follow. The injections are criminally administered by some of the most ruthless and untrustworthy people in the world.

Persecuting honest doctors, arresting freedom loving truckers, and censoring truth tellers does not change the facts. The covid injection campaigns are a violent crime. Dr Cole is one of the world’s most knowledgeable doctors on this subject. He does a great job explaining the up to date science in terms we can all understand.

” . . . the attackes on masculinity and the attacks on feminity . . .”  leading to what end?

The 12-minute video begins in the educational system and ends looking dystopian relationships between men and women in the eye.

Biologically, socially and culturally we kinda have to have dynamic relationships between the sexes,

          or we’re screwed in the long term,  I’d say.

There is SO much room for misunderstanding.

Yet, more than ever we need a MASS OF PEOPLE if we are going to wiggle out from under the boulder of tyranny.  And NOT much time for                         figuring out how we come together on various divisive topics.

If this video arouses stereotypes and not helpful discussion,  I have done you a disservice.   /Sandra
