intro speaker – Bio – Ross Andersen DC, ND, DO (MP)

Currently operating an electromagnetic field radiation consulting service called SafeZone EMF Radiation Protection. SafeZone does home and business consultations and evaluations for all forms of electromagnetic and wireless radiation. Remediation and mitigation methods are recommended for all forms of wireless radiation that are found.
This plan is referred to as 5G wireless technology. 5G (meaning 5th generation microwave wireless technology) requires hundreds of mini cell towers to be constructed throughout our city emitting micro-wave radiation. 5G service is supposed to be up to 100 times faster than current data speeds, but it requires cellphone microwave radiation towers to be closer to our homes than ever before. Telus claims they have no intention on installing 5G in Penticton; however they have started to install 4G micro-cell towers that are 5G-ready.
To date, there has been zero to minimal community input. The meeting at the Cleland theatre on Wednesday, Oct 10, at 7pm will help enlighten the public and local politicians and candidates on the risks associated with placing these towers close to homes, and schools.
According to Kevin Proteau, main organizer of the event, over 200 International Scientists have been petitioning Governments and Industry to halt the output of 5G micro-cell towers over potential health risks.
To date, such warnings have been ignored. Proteau is also worried about the private information collected through this technology and noted that the company Telus has contracted to install the towers, Huawei, is a Chinese-owned company that has been banned in the US and Australia for illegally gathering private information on citizens and Governments.
Proteau, who is running for City Council, (as well) is urging people to show up and learn about the risks of having microwave cell towers next to their homes, businesses and schools.
We have reserved seats for all candidates running in the current municipal election because there will be a Q & A after the presentation. It is hoped that council will ask questions regarding about their concerns as it is part of council’s mandate to protect the health & safety of the citizens of Penticton.
