Hundreds of studies since Canada’s last science review show human and environmental harms from “wireless” radiofrequency radiation. There is, however, no research on additional higher frequencies used for 5G. This is why a rapidly growing coalition of Canadian experts, and health and environmental organizations is calling for a moratorium on 5G spectrum auctions.
Did you know Canada completely lacks environmental protection against radiofrequency radiation? There is no evidence this untested tech is safe in the long run. Pausing sales that increase “wireless” radiation with higher frequency spectrum is the prudent choice.
Prevent Cancer Now and many other experts and organizations have issued a time-sensitive Joint Statement to Industry, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED) opposing release of more spectrum in the 26, 28 and 38 GHz Bands.

Courts in Canada and the US have ruled in favour of groups challenging glyphosate risk assessments. Concerns over possible industry influence are heightened with falsification re. nHL in final US ATSDR report on glyphosate.
Sending a message to Canada’s officials, to protect global health.
Advocates for social justice and equity, environmental protection, and public health call on Parliament to expedite passage of Bill C-226, Canada’s first environmental racism law. The House of Commons committee approved the bill without amendment, so the bill is now in line for a final vote in the House of Commons and must then be passed in the Senate.
PCN and C4ST examined submissions to the ISED 26, 28 and 38 GHz consultations, and found a surprising agreement between the telecommunications companies and the citizens’ groups, that the auction should not proceed as planned.
If CEPA was indeed protecting public health, we would expect declining diseases from environmental exposures. Canadian examples point to the opposite. Endocrine-related obesity and metabolic syndrome, disorders of early development and sexual differentiation, and cancers in hormone-sensitive tissues have not been prevented. Endocrine disruption does not follow classic dose-response, so these substances must be regulated based on their innate hazard. With many thousands of EDCs, classes of similar chemicals require group actions.
