Op 14 mei 2012 besloot de gemeenteraad in Lambton Shores in twee verschillende moties om geen zendantennes of andere draadloze technologie in het publieke domein te Port Franks (bij Ontario) toe te laten en bovendien om in dat dorp een stralingsvrije ''witte''zone te creëren:



The first Official White Zone!

No Green Light For Proposed Residential Cell Tower

Lambton Shores Municipal Council last week heard two motions related to wireless communication installations in Port Franks, Ontario. Council passed a motion for nonconcurrence regarding a residential tower site proposed by Bell Canada. A historymaking motion brought forward by Councillor John Russell requested staff research and report in consideration of creating a ‘white zone’ in the hamlet of Port Franks; this motion also passed. This would be a first in Canada—protecting residents, employees, visitors and the area’s unique natural environment from radiation generated by wireless communications installations.

The report will include Official Planner consultation. Russell confirmed, “This has been sent to staff to investigate, and the issue will be brought back to Council with more information that answers how the idea fits within our planning parameters.”

A ‘white zone’ is an area where outdoor and indoor air pollution by the radiofrequency electromagnetic fields emitted by communications antennas is minimized or eliminated.
Proven safer and effective communication technologies are available to improve services. For years, this area on the eastern shore of southern Lake Huron has had fibre optic cable—a newer technology that many Canadian communities lack.

Residents applauded Council’s forwarding-looking decision to investigate this topic, “This is not a move against industry, it sets the health of the town as top priority.”

More than 200 residents of the 460 homes in Port Franks submitted statements opposing all proposed communications antennas due to health risks to the townspeople, area wildlife, and abundant natural areas home to many endangered species and included requests to deem the area a ‘white zone’.

Ook in Vancouver ontstaat steeds meer tegenstand tegen de ziekmakende draadloze technologie. Als voorbeeld de oppositie in de gemeenteraad van Vancouver tegen de invoering van smart meters (slimme meters). Een buitengewoon welsprekende dame houdt bij een hoorzitting in 6 minuten met beroep op de grondwet een vlammend betoog tegen een verplichte invoering van die meters.

Vancouver City Council listens to various speakers on the Smart Meter issue.

Una St. Clair is woordvoerster voor . Het is zeer de moeite waard om de band enkele malen te beluisteren. Verplichte kost voor medewerkers van het antennebureau.
