For Immediate Release

Parents, Teachers and Groups across Canada demand election candidates promise New Laws and Action on Wi Fi in Schools

Toronto – Parents, grandparents and concerned voters across Canada represented by the Wireless Radiation Safety Council (WRSC) are demanding all federal party leaders and riding candidates state their position on protecting children from escalating levels of microwave radiation generated by wireless internet (Wi Fi) equipment in the school environment and by cell towers.

An Ontario mother from Peterborough, Kathy McDermid, will outline the main concerns of her local group.  McDermid says that the Peterborough school board is committing grave ethical transgressions in implementing its plan to install Wi Fi, in its schools.

“The leaders are only talking about getting elected. Our children need protection from the unregulated installation of these devices. It’s scientifically accepted that children are vulnerable to this radiation,”  said  Dr. Magda Havas, an internationally-recognized expert on the health effects of Wi Fi and microwave radiation and a professor at Trent University in Peterborough, Ontario.

Headaches, nausea, and heart palpitations are reported in schools where Wi Fi equipment is installed. Similar symptoms occur when cell towers are erected in densely populated neighbourhoods.  Currently residents and parents of school children have no say in how much radiation their children receive.
