Notices, Workshops & Rides: Re: TELUS communication towers
While some of us may be particularly vulnerable to COVID, others are vulnerable to the social isolation of the COVID era.
More communication service sounds like an all-round solution, right? Not everyone believes that wireless communication can be physiologically harmful. For some of us, including me, such concerns can feel abstract and boring.
On the other hand, I have met people who are so vulnerable to communications frequencies that they have to protect themselves, or live with constant fatigue, headaches and other symptoms. Saying there are no such people is about as dumb as saying queer people don't exist. They know what they need.
In the spirit of protecting the vulnerable, what about keeping Cortes as a haven for people who can't live in any city because all the wireless communication makes them sick?
That wouldn't mean less Internet, it would mean putting resources into fibre optic and wired Internet and not into WiFi, 5G or cell service. I'm going to email this suggestion to the email address provided, , and I invite you to do the same.
I also think it's relevant that TELUS's "public consultation process," being mostly online, has an inherent bias toward listening to people who spend time online and ignoring people who don't.
Thanks for reading.
