Canada lagging behind China and Russia: Safety Code 6 needs to be updated now
Many parents assume that if a wireless gadget is in the marketplace, it is safe for children. Unfortunately, that is not always the case.

We must do better.

In 2011, Health Canada found itself in a tough spot. The public was becoming more and more uneasy over exposure to RF radiation from the proliferating number of cell phones, cell towers and Wi-Fi routers. After holding hearings in the spring and fall of 2010, Parliament asked the health agency to investigate whether its exposure limits —the national RF standard known as Safety Code 6 (SC6)— were too lenient and needed strengthening. Soon afterwards, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) added urgency to the assignment by classifying RF radiation as a possible human cancer agent, or, in the vernacular, a 2B carcinogen.

Maple Ridge should follow Toronto and pass a Prudent Avoidance Policy regarding cellphone towers in the district, a Canadians for Safe Technology speaker told council last week. “We are requesting this review,” Ron McNutt said at council’s committee meeting. The policy calls for the city to review radio frequency levels when companies are installing cell towers and requests that cellphone companies keep emissions from those towers at one per cent of the levels set by Industry Canada’s Safety Code 6, which guides public exposure.
