Grandmother starts walk to Ottawa to protest Cell Phone Towers

"Frustrated that Bell Canada has more power than her local government, Wendy Hoy will set off for Ottawa on foot today, to raise awareness about electro-sensitivity, something that a large number of Canadians suffer from every day.
"Cell Tower emissions are a source of involuntary exposure to a type of electro-magnetic radiation referred to as microwave radiation. And not one single Canadian has a say in whether or not you live next to a tower," said Hoy, a founding member of the Lakeshore Coalition opposing cell towers in an environmentally sensitive area of Lake Huron.
"An airline pilot who is now electrosensitive and cannot fly anymore has just moved here," says Hoy. "Right after she got here, up go the cell towers. Where are these people supposed to live?"
"In Hoy's home of Port Franks, the local Council voted to investigate the feasibility of establishing a "white zone" which is an area with lower radiation levels. Residents who had a face to face meeting with Industry Canada last week were advised any attempts to have areas of lower radiation would be blocked by them.
"Last year the World Health Organization re-classified the type of radiation emitted by sources such as cell towers, cell phones, and wireless internet as a possible carcinogen. Globally, medical organizations are urging precaution.
"We had a majority of Council Members vote against a cell tower in our neighbourhood. We even had half the town sign a petition against it. Despite overwhelming objection, Industry Canada has the final word in whether or not Bell Mobility can go ahead with plans to blanket Lambton Shores with cell towers.
