Petition to the House of Commons

Whereas:
  • Wi-Fi systems and 5G technology have very harmful effects on human, animal and environmental health;
  • Wi-Fi systems and 5G technology seem to be especially harmful to newborns, children, people who are ill and seniors;
  • 5G technology is similar to, but worse than, the problems that have already been linked to early generations of telephones because it uses pulses of waves;
  • On January 1, 2019, 247 scientists in 42 countries recommended a moratorium on the deployment of 5G technology in the telecommunications sector;
  • A major study by the National Toxicology Program in the United States showed that rats exposed to waves developed cancers;
  • The International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) opposes the installation of cellular towers and antennas on their firehalls for health reasons;
  • The precautionary principle is not implemented seriously or rigorously; and
  • Since 5G technology was deployed in New York City, a number of people and their pets have fallen ill.
We, the undersigned, concerned citizens and residents of Canada, call upon the House of Commons to enact a moratorium, or temporary halt, on implementation of 5G communication technology across Canada until an independent House of Commons-mandated team of qualified researchers has proven that the dangers of 5G technology to human, animal and environmental health are in fact minimal and have no serious consequences.
